All-Star closer Brian Wilson has been placed on the disabled list by the San Francisco Giants because of inflammation in his right elbow.

The move announced Sunday is retroactive to Tuesday. San Francisco also recalled right-hander Steve Edlefsen from Triple-A Fresno.

Wilson hasn't pitched since he blew a save on Monday at Atlanta. He began the season on the DL with a left oblique strain.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy says he is hopeful that Wilson will return to the team at the end of time on the 15-day disabled list.
