The Arizona Diamondbacks placed starting pitcher Shelby Miller on the 10-day disabled list with elbow inflammation following an MRI on Monday, the team announced.

He will receive a second opinion Tuesday, according to Steve Gilbert of MLB.com.

Miller left Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the top of the fifth inning after only 78 pitches. He walked two batters and allowed a double to Corey Seager before getting pulled.

At the time, Miller was reportedly experiencing forearm tightness.

The Diamondbacks recalled pitcher Silvino Bracho from Triple-A to take his roster spot. No rotation replacement or timetable for Miller's return has been announced.

After a catastrophic debut season with the Diamondbacks in 2016, when Miller went 3-12 with a 6.15 ERA over 20 starts, his season looked more promising in the early going. Despite improvements, his 4.09 ERA and high walk rate paled in comparison to his numbers with the Atlanta Braves in 2015.
