Injuries continue to plague the Cardinals

Jamie Garcia becomes the latest in a long list of Cardinal players to be placed on the DL.

St. Louis has placed lefty Jamie Garcia on the 15-day disabled list with a left shoulder strain.  Garcia skipped a start last week and then pitched Tuesday against Houston.  He left after just two innings on the mound, giving up five hits and six earned runs.

Garcia is just one of many top players on the DL for the Cardinals.  Lance Berkman, Matt Carpenter, Chris Carpenter, Jon Jay, and Skip Schumaker are also out with injuries.  Forcing the Cardinals to rely on many minor league and bench players for the past month.

St. Louis has recalled right-handed pitcher Fernando Salas to fill in as Garcia does his time on the DL.  

The Cardinals finish off a three game series with the Astros tonight.  Then start inter-league play with a three game, home series, against the Cleveland Indians.
