The St. Louis Cardinals placed pitcher Jaime Garcia on the 15-day disabled list with a left shoulder strain on Thursday, and they called up right-handed reliever Fernando Salas from Triple-A Memphis.
Garcia is 3-4 with a 4.48 earned run average in 11 starts this season. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny didn't say who would fill Garcia's spot in the rotation on Sunday.
Salas was optioned to Triple-A on May 26. With Memphis, Salas was 1-0 with a save, giving up four runs in four innings.
