Cardinals place DeJong on DL, call up O’Neill, Munoz
ST. LOUIS (AP) – The St. Louis Cardinals placed Paul DeJong on the 10-day disabled list on Friday, a day after the shortstop’s left hand was fractured when he was hit by a pitch in a loss to the Philadelphia Phillies.
Reliever Matt Bowman was also placed on the disabled list with multiple blisters on his pitching hand, raising St. Louis’ total to seven players placed on the disabled list over the last 10 days.
DeJong is the only Cardinals player to have appeared in all 41 games this season, and he’s hitting .260 with eight home runs and 19 RBIs. Bowman is 0-1 with a 5.82 ERA in 17 appearances.
St. Louis called up infielder Yairo Munoz and outfielder Tyler O’Neill from Triple-A Memphis to fill the roster spots of DeJong and Bowman. Munoz played in 11 games earlier this season for the Cardinals, and O’Neill is hitting .319 with 13 home runs and 31 RBIs for Memphis.
