(670 The Score) -- The Cubs have placed righty reliever Carl Edwards Jr. on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation, they announced Wednesday afternoon.

Edwards felt the discomfort in his shoulder after a win at Pittsburgh on Tuesday evening in which he threw a scoreless inning. An MRI then revealed the inflammation.

Edwards, 26, is a go-to reliever for the Cubs, often handling the eighth inning and boasting a 2.88 ERA this season. 

In a corresponding move, Chicago has recalled right-hander Cory Mazzoni from Triple-A Iowa, where he has a 1.25 ERA in 14 relief appearances this season. Mazzoni has thrown one scoreless inning for the Cubs earlier this season.
