The Philadelphia Phillies have placed shortstop J.P. Crawford on the 10-day disabled list with a right forearm strain.

Infielder Jesmuel Valentin was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday to replace him on the 25-man roster.

The 23-year-old Crawford says he lost feeling near his elbow after making a relay throw to third base in the fifth inning of Saturday’s 4-1 loss to Atlanta. He was lifted for a pinch hitter in the bottom of the inning.

Crawford says he’s been feeling discomfort for a couple of days. He’s made five throwing errors so far in 20 games in his first full season in the majors.

Scott Kingery was in the starting lineup at shortstop Sunday against the Braves.
