The Atlanta Braves have placed struggling reliever Jonny Venters on the 15-day disabled list with a left elbow impingement. Thursday's move came after the left-hander gave up his sixth homer of the season to Jeff Baker in Wednesday night's 5-1 loss to the Chicago Cubs. Left-hander Luis Avilan was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett. Avilan was 3-6 with a 3.23 ERA in 16 games, including 12 starts, at Double-A Mississippi. Avilan was assigned to the Gwinnett roster on Wednesday. Venters had six wins, nine saves and a 1.84 ERA last year as a top setup man for closer Craig Kimbrel. He allowed only three homers in 2010 and 2011 combined. He is 3-3 with a 4.45 ERA and no saves this season.
