Familia was placed on the disabled list on May 12, retroactive to May 9, with right biceps tendinitis. He is 0-0 with a 3.48 ERA spanning eight games. Atchison was placed on the disabled list on May 14 with inflammation in his right elbow that led to finger numbness. The veteran is 0-0 with a 4.50 ERA in 19 games this season.
