ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. (AP) - Tampa Bay Rays reliever Jason Isringhausen left Saturday night’s game against Washington with pain in his surgically repaired right elbow and was placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Isringhausen was hurt while making a pitch to pinch hitter Corey Patterson in the ninth inning. He underwent tests postgame.

“There’s concern. I don’t know what level,” Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said.

The 36-year-old Isringhausen had surgery on the elbow last September while with St. Louis. He signed a minor league contract with Tampa Bay on Feb. 20.

Tampa Bay plans to bring up right-hander Winston Abreu from Triple-A Durham to replace Isringhausen. Abreu, 32, is 0-1 with a 6.81 ERA in 33 career major league games, including 26 with Washington in 2007.
