Miguel Montero goes on 15-day DL
Arizona announced the move before Thursday's makeup game at Texas.
Left-handed reliever Joe Thatcher, acquired from San Diego in a trade Wednesday, joined the Diamondbacks.
Montero's move to the DL was retroactive to Monday, the day after he hit his third homer in his past seven games. He had missed three consecutive games before that with a stiff back.
