Injured St. Louis Cardinals
pitchers John Gast and Jake Westbrook
were scheduled to fly out of Kansas City to visit doctors on Monday.
Both are on the disabled list.
Westbrook was scheduled to visit Dr. James Andrews in Pensacola, Fla., to have his ailing right elbow checked out. Westbrook told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that his elbow is structurally sound but the pain is "not getting better." He has had three operations on the elbow.
Gast, meanwhile, was scheduled to see Dr. Lyndon Gross in St. Louis to have his sore right shoulder examined.
The Cardinals called up reliever Victor Marte from Class AAA Memphis on Monday and optioned right-hander Carlos Martinez to Memphis.
Martinez, 21, was 0-0 with a 4.50 ERA in seven appearances.
Marte, 32, was 1-0 with a 2.78 ERA with 10 saves in 22 1/3 innings for Memphis. He appeared in 48 games for the Cardinals last year.
