Ottavino to DL, MacLane recalled

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.


Cards aren’t going anywhere with this type of bullpen, dewitt better start pulling it out of his own pocket if he wants to see a winning team again, cause they won’t last in the NL let alone the AL and pujols won’t stick around after his contract is up with this type of display and I can’t blame him.

what about the second game against the rockies another loss what next. Do you think they should fire tony and get another manager ,the first game was a joke. I feel if something does not happen soon the cardinals will not make the play-offs thankyou

I just think it is strange,they don,t get the third call strike. Two nights it a row and the next guy hits a home run. But no is talking about the blowed calls. And who is in charge of the balls. Just strange the Rockies need a home run and they get just like that.

Oh god, NOT MacLane! There’s a reason this guy has an ERA over 4 in AAA. He stinks! I’ve had the misfortune of seeing him pitch in person several times and he lost every one of those games. Not a good arm for the bullpen, nope. This is a AAAA pitcher, AT BEST.
