LOS ANGELES -- Pitcher Rick Sutcliffe was placed on the 21-day disabled list Friday because of a torn muscle in his right foot.

The Dodgers announced they have purchased the contract of Tom Niedenfuer, 21, from the San Antonio minor league club to replace Sutcliffe. Niedenfuer had a 13-3 record with five saves in the Texas League.

Sutcliffe injured his foot Aug. 7 while working out and apparently aggravated the injury when he pitched Thursday.
