SUN CITY, Ariz. -- The Milwaukee Brewers Friday placed right-handed pitcher Chuck Porter on the 60-day disabled list and replaced him with catcher Jamie Nelson.
Porter suffered a torn medial collateral ligament in his right elbow last season. He later had a tendon removed from his left wrist and placed in the elbow to reinforce the ligament.
Nelson returned to the Brewers earlier this week from the Chicago Cubs. He failed to meet the conditions of a prior trade with the Cubs when Chicago learned he had a bad elbow.
