ST. LOUIS (AP) _ The St. Louis Cardinals have placed left-hander
Jaime Garcia on the 15-day disabled list with a left shoulder
General manager John Mozeliak says the team became aware of the
issue about a week ago and had hoped Garcia could work through it.
He was charged with six runs and six hits over 5 1-3 innings in a
7-6 victory over Milwaukee on Friday, improving to 5-2 while his
ERA increased from 2.88 to 3.58.
This is Garcia's fourth trip to the disabled list, including a
two-month stint during the 2012 season with a left shoulder sprain.
St. Louis didn't announce who would take Garcia's place in the
rotation. The NL Central leaders recalled reliever Mitchell Boggs
from Triple-A Memphis on Saturday.
