Cardinals’ Kelly to the DL, Wainwright moved to 60-day DL
ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals have put catcher Carson Kelly on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring, a setback for a team already without the injured Yadier Molina behind the plate.
The Cardinals also moved pitcher Adam Wainwright from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day DL and called up catcher Steve Baron from Triple-A Memphis.
The 23-year-old Kelly was hitting .111 since being called up on May 6 following Molina’s late-night surgery after being hit by a foul ball in the groin
Wainwright was put on the disabled list for a second time this season after a reoccurrence of right elbow pain during a start at San Diego. He and Kelly are among five Cardinals to go on the disabled list this week, joining Carlos Martinez, Tyler Lyons and Luke Gregerson.
Baron was 0 for 11 with Seattle in 2015 in his only major league action.
