A’s right-hander Brandon McCarthy was scratched from a scheduled outing earlier this month due to right shoulder discomfort. He’s made two starts since then, including a 10-strikeout gem against the Tigers, but that shoulder issue is still barking.

The A’s threw McCarthy on the 15-day disabled list Sunday morning, according to the club’s official Twitter feed, and recalled reliever Jim Miller from Triple-A Sacramento in a corresponding roster move.

McCarthy has posted a stellar 2.95 ERA and 40/16 K/BB ratio across 58 innings (nine starts) this season for the 20-21 Athletics.

The 28-year-old missed a month of the 2011 campaign with a similar shoulder injury.

    Siri couldn’t tell him how to get Josh Hamilton out.
    Siri did tell him how not to give Josh Hamilton anything to hit.

    Get well soon.

    Same time as last year going on the DL, and for the issue (shoulder). So promising when he’s healthy…
