The Cardinals announced that they have placed righty Michael Wacha on the 10-day DL, as had been expected. He’s dealing with a left oblique strain.
Fellow righty John Gant will come up to take his place on the active roster. For the time being, Gant may move into the pen, though the Cards will ultimately have to fill in a rotation opening.
The open question is just how long the St. Louis organization will go without Wacha. He has had a strong campaign to date. With Alex Reyes already out, the pressures on the rotation are mounting.
