PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Philadelphia Phillies have placed closer Ryan Madson on the 15-day disabled list with a right hand contusion.

Right-hander Andrew Carpenter was called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to take Madson’s spot. The move was made Tuesday before the major league-leading Phillies opened a three-game series against Boston. Madson was put on the DL retroactive to June 19.

The Phillies are missing three closers. Jose Contreras is out and Brad Lidge has been sidelined all year.

Madson is 3-1 with a 2.03 ERA and has 15 saves in 16 chances.

Carpenter was 5-0 with a 1.58 ERA in 24 games for Lehigh Valley.
