Cincinnati Reds third baseman Scott Rolen was sent to the 15-day disabled list due to a strained left shoulder on Sunday.

Chris Valaika was called up from Louisville to take Rolen's place. Valaika has hit .306 playing for the Bats.

Rolen is the seventh Reds player disabled this season, tied for fourth-most among all Major League teams.
