ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays have placed right-hander Charlie Morton on the 10-day injured list due to inflammation in his pitching shoulder.

The move comes one day after Morton was removed from a start against the New York Yankees in the third inning. Morton is 1-1 with a 5.40 ERA in four starts this season.

He was an All-Star in 2018 and 2019.

The Rays filled the roster opening by reinstating lefty reliever José Alvarado from the paternity list.
