Middleton (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Sunday.

Middleton's move to the 60-day DL opens up a 40-man roster spot for catcher Jose Briceno to make his way to the major-league roster in replacement of the injured Rene Rivera (knee). Middleton is set to undergo Tommy John surgery and will be sidelined for the foreseeable future.
