PITTSBURGH (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals have placed struggling reliever Greg Holland on the disabled list with a right hip impingement.
The Cardinals made the move Saturday after Holland's ERA ballooned to 9.45 following a bumpy inning of work Friday night in an 8-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. Holland, a three-time All Star, allowed two runs on three hits. He has surrendered two runs in each of his last four appearances.
Manager Mike Matheny gave no timetable for Holland's possible return.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals have put catcher Carson Kelly on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring, a setback for a team already without the injured Yadier Molina behind the plate.
The Cardinals also moved pitcher Adam Wainwright from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day DL and called up catcher Steve Baron from Triple-A Memphis.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals have agreed to a one-year, $9 million contract with newly acquired outfielder Marcell Ozuna, avoiding arbitration.
The Cardinals also reached one-year deals on Friday with outfielder Randal Grichuk ($2.6 million), right-hander Michael Wacha ($5.3 million) and left-hander Tyler Lyons ($1.2 million).
Ozuna is coming off a breakout season. He hit .312 with 37 homers and 124 RBIs for the Miami Marlins, then was traded to St. Louis in December.
CINCINNATI (AP) — Dexter Fowler is doing everything he can to get the St. Louis Cardinals into the playoffs
Fowler hit a tying homer in the eighth inning and a go-ahead double in the 10th, helping the Cardinals knock off the Cincinnati Reds 8-7 on Tuesday night.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Matt Carpenter is feeling better and it showed Saturday night.
Carpenter and Yadier Molina homered, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-3 to gain ground in the NL Central.
St. Louis pulled within three games of division-leading Chicago with its sixth victory in seven games.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals just needed to reach the late innings to get their bats going and capitalize on scoring chances.
Dexter Fowler hit a leadoff triple in the ninth inning and scored the go-ahead run on Kolten Wong's single moments later, Stephen Piscotty later hit a two-run homer, and the Cardinals rallied from a three-run deficit to beat the San Francisco Giants 11-6 on Friday night.
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Infielder Jhonny Peralta was put on the 10-day disabled list by the St. Louis Cardinals because of an upper respiratory issue.
Peralta sat out the four previous games, and the move was retroactive to Sunday. He is hitting .120 (3 for 25) with no RBIs.
JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — Tyler Lyons recalls being impressed. Then he wasn't so sure. Then, well, pretty much everyone realized what the Cardinals had in Seung-hwan Oh.
A year ago, Lyons was admiring how his new bullpen mate was able to work the corners of the plate with an array of pitches. A couple weeks later, Lyons was concerned when Oh's fastball only ticked the high 80 mph range during early spring games.
