Campillo put on DL

ATLANTA — Braves pitcher Jorge Campillo is back on the disabled list for the second time this season.

Campillo was placed on the 15-day DL before Wednesday night's game against the Chicago Cubs. Outfielder Brian Barton was called up from Triple-A Gwinnett to fill the roster spot.

The right-handed Campillo started the season on the DL because of rotator cuff tendinitis. He returned to pitch five games in relief, going 1-0 with a 4.15 ERA.

Campillo was one of the Braves' most surprising pitchers last year, earning a spot in the starting rotation. But he's struggled with shoulder problems since making two starts for his native Mexico in the World Baseball Classic.
