The Cardinals announced on Wednesday afternoon that right-hander Adam Ottavino has been placed on the 15-day disabled list due to what the club is calling a “right shoulder strain,” and lefty Evan MacLane has been recalled from Triple-A Memphis.
Ottavino, 24, pitched 3 2/3 innings on Saturday against the Brewers, allowing four runs on nine hits, and had not appeared since.
MacLane, 27, was briefly up with the Cardinals earlier this season but did not pitch. In 17 starts for Memphis this year, he is 5-7 with a 4.47 ERA, 55 strikeouts and 15 walks in 110 2/3 innings. He is likely to serve as the long man in the Cardinals bullpen for the time being.
