The Atlanta Braves placed Yonny Chirinos on the injured list Monday with right elbow inflammation and recalled fellow right-hander Allan Winans from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Chirinos, 29, has struggled since he was selected off waivers from the Tampa Bay Rays in July. In five starts with Atlanta, he is 1-1 with a 9.27 ERA, while allowing 13.3 hits per nine innings.

In five major league seasons, Chirinos is 20-15 with a 4.03 ERA in 69 appearances (38 starts). All but five of those appearances were with the Rays.

Winans, 28, made his major league debut July 22 and went 1-0 with a 1.59 ERA in two starts for the Braves earlier this season. He struck out 14 batters in 11 1/3 innings.
