The Philadelphia Phillies placed left-handed pitcher Ranger Suarez on the injured list with a right hamstring strain on Saturday.

In 17 starts this season, Suarez is 2-6 with a 3.88 ERA in 97 1/3 innings of work. In 15 straight outings since May 24, he lasted at least five innings, the longest such streak of his career.

Suarez, 27, is 27-21 with a 3.29 ERA in 129 appearances (61 starts) in six seasons with the Phillies.

In a corresponding move, the Phillies called up right-handed pitcher Andrew Bellatti from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
