Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Texas Rangers placed pitcher Joe Saunders on the 15-day disabled list Monday, retroactive to April 5, with a bruised left ankle.

Saunders sustained the injury against the Rays on Friday when he was struck in the ankle by a line drive off the bat off Tampa Bay's Evan Longoria with two away in the fourth inning.

The 32-year-old southpaw surrendered five runs -- four earned -- on six hits over 3 2/3 innings to absorb the loss.

To replace Saunders on the roster, the Rangers recalled pitcher Daniel McCutchen from Double-A Frisco.

McCutchen took over for Saunders on Friday following the injury and allowed three runs -- two earned -- on four hits and two walks over 2 1/3 frames. He did not appear in a game for Frisco.
