The Baltimore Orioles put right-hander Chris Tillman on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left abdominal muscle.
The move announced Thursday is retroactive to March 22, which allows Tillman to pitch in the Orioles' fifth game of the season on April 6 against Minnesota.
Tillman was scratched from his scheduled March 10 start because of abdominal soreness and has pitched only in minor league games since.
Baltimore also reassigned outfielder Trayvon Robinson to its minor league camp.

For the first time since 1997, the Baltimore Orioles are coming off a year that calls for an encore.
After a run of 14 straight losing seasons, the Orioles went 93-69 in 2012 and beat the then-defending AL champion Texas Rangers in the wild-card game. Baltimore then took the New York Yankees to the maximum five games before falling in the division series.
