Florida Marlins right-hander Anibal Sanchez has been placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained right shoulder.

The Marlins made the move before the start of a six-game trip Friday in Colorado. The injury forced Sanchez from Thursday's game against Atlanta in the fifth inning.

Top infield prospect Chris Coghlan was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans, where he hit .344 in 25 games. Coghlan will be available to spell second baseman Dan Uggla and third baseman Emilio Bonifacio, both struggling for the slumping Marlins.

Sanchez had shoulder surgery in June 2007 and returned last July. As a rookie in 2006 he went 10-3 and threw a no-hitter against Arizona, but he's 1-4 this year with an ERA of 5.79.
