The Atlanta Braves put reliever Luis Ayala on the 15-day disabled list before their game Tuesday with an anxiety disorder, reports.

Ayala took two trips to the emergency room with high blood pressure last week while the Braves were in Denver. He gave up a run on two hits in just 1/3 of an inning in the series finale but didn't travel with the team to Detroit over the weekend.

"He's been put on blood-pressure medication to hopefully ease the anxiety," general manager Frank Wren said. "But right now, it's just a function of him getting used to the medication and getting back to feeling well. It's a bit of a process to get those meds regulated."

Atlanta acquired Ayala via a trade with the Baltimore Orioles on April 9. He put up a 3.86 ERA in five apperances.

To fill Ayala's spot, the Braves called up David Carpenter from Triple-A Gwinnett. The 27-year-old righty had a 3.52 ERA in six appearances.
