The Miami Marlins placed pitcher Alex Sanabia on the 15-day disabled list with a right groin injury Monday and recalled left-hander Dan Jennings from Class AAA New Orleans.
Sanabia, who is 3-7, went just four innings in Sunday's loss against the Chicago White Sox.
Sanabia was caught by cameras last week spitting on the ball during his start against the Philadelphia Phillies. He said he did not know it was illegal to spit on the ball and that he did it to get a better grip on the ball. He was not disciplined for the incident.
