ST LOUIS MO (KTVI) – The St Louis Cardinals today placed infielder/outfielder Matt Carpenter on the 15-day disabled list.
Carpenter suffered an oblique strain during last night’s 4-0 win over the San Diego Padres. In order to fill out the roster, the Cardinals have recalled catcher Steven Hill from Triple-A Memphis. Hill will wear number 60.
Carpenter is the fifth player this week to hit the disabled list, joining Jon Jay, Allen Craig, Lance Berkman and Kyle McClellan.
There are currently seven Cardinals on the disabled list. The team is in action against San Diego again tonight.
