Ashby, who was scheduled to start Wednesday at Los Angeles against the Dodgers, is 2-10 this season with a 4.58 ERA in 23 appearances (17 starts). The IL move is retroactive to Saturday.
In parts of two seasons with Milwaukee, the 24-year-old southpaw is 5-12 with a 4.57 ERA over 36 appearances (21 starts).
Alexander, a rookie this season at age 29, has made 12 appearances including seven starts. The brother of pitcher Scott Alexander is 2-1 with a 5.18 ERA in 48 2/3 innings.
