Wainwright put on DL by Cards because of inflamed elbow

ST. LOUIS (AP) Right-hander Adam Wainwright was placed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday by the St. Louis Cardinals because of right elbow inflammation.

The 36-year-old is 1-2 with a 3.45 ERA in three starts. He had been scheduled to start Tuesday against the New York Mets.

Wainwright tweeted ”all will be well in a few days.”

St. Louis made the move retroactive to Friday and manager Mike Matheny said the team was trying to be proactive.

Right-hander John Brebbia was recalled from Triple-A Memphis. He pitched two scoreless innings for the Cardinals in two appearances earlier this season.
