According to Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Indians placed right-handed starter Fausto Carmona on the 15-day disabled list Sunday morning with a strained right quad.

Carmona suffered the injury in the third inning of Saturday’s game against the cross-state Reds while legging out a bunt single. He was pulled immediately and the Tribe bullpen strung together seven innings of one-run ball to capture a 3-1 victory.

The Indians will hope that Carmona returns as a rejuvenated pitcher after the All-Star break. He’s posted a poor 5.78 ERA and 1.41 WHIP through 18 starts this season, striking out only 62 while walking 33 in 104 1/3 total innings. A replacement has not yet been named, but will likely come from the starting rotation at Triple-A Columbus.

Indians closer Chris Perez was activated from the bereavement list in a corresponding roster move.
