St. Louis Cardinals Place Adam Wainwright on DL, Recall Jack Flaherty

The St. Louis Cardinals placed starting pitcher, Adam Wainwright on the disabled list Tuesday after inflammation in his right elbow caused discomfort during his last start.

The team has recalled Jack Flaherty from Memphis to take his spot in the rotation. In five starts for Memphis, Flaherty was 4-1 with a 2.27 ERA (2nd in the Pacific Coast League) and 41 strikeouts (T5th in PCL).   He fanned a season-high 13 batters in his most recent start on May 9 at Oklahoma City.
