DETROIT (AP) _ The Detroit Tigers placed closer Matt Anderson on the 15-day disabled list Thursday while he recovers from a shoulder injury and recalled right-hander Fernando Rodney from Double-A Erie.

Anderson has been bothered by a stiff shoulder since spring training. He is 2-1 with a 5.63 ERA in eight games. The move was retroactive to Saturday.

Rodney has not given up any runs in eight relief innings with Erie. He has allowed three hits, walked three and struck out six, going 1-0.
