Matt Carpenter became the fifth Cardinal in the last week to go on the disabled list.
Carpenter suffered a strained right oblique during a first-inning at-bat on Tuesday, which resulted in a double.
Right-handed catcher Steven Hill's contract was purchased from Class AAA Memphis to replace Carpenter, who was hitting .288 with three homers and 20 runs batted in.
