Jack Flaherty scratched from Sunday's game due to hip tightness, per Jeff Jones

I am going to start this on a personal note. When I wrote the previews for this series I originally wrote everything guessing Matthew Liberatore would start Sunday. Then the Cardinals pushed up Jack Flaherty so I had to scramble to write some analysis for him instead. Turns out that was all for naught as he has been scratched from Sunday's game due to hip tightness. Brutal. The starter is TBA, but it would be Liberatore's turn in the rotation. I believe Miles Mikolas would also be available on full rest.

Alex Reyes is back on the DL; happiness is an illusion

After making his season debut yesterday, May 30, Alex Reyes will land back on the Disabled List with a right lat strain. You might recall that is his throwing lat. The Cardinals have recalled Austin Gomber. They have also recalled Luke Voit and optioned John Gant and Tyler O'Neill. The good news is that Carlos Martínez is scheduled to make a rehab start for AA Springfield tonight. His lat seemed fine while he was shooting baskets after the rec-league basketball game we were both watching had ended. With the off day on Monday, the Cardinals may not need another starter until next Saturday, which may allow Martínez to slot in that spot. In other injury news, Yadier Molina is back to baseball activities and may be cleared to play in the next few weeks.

Paul DeJong's hand is fractured

The Cardinals now have ten players on the disabled list, the two newest being Paul DeJong, who fractured his hand after being hit by a pitch on Thursday evening, and Matt Bowman, who was injured after pitching in every single game since his debut on April 6, 2016. They will join teammates Carson Kelly, Adam Wainwright, Luke Gregerson, Tyler Lyons, Carlos Martínez, Yadier Molina, Dominic Leone, and Alex Reyes (who is currently pitching in rehab assignments) on the Disabled List. Swell.

Carlos Martínez has been placed on the 10-day Disabled List

Cardinals righthander Carlos Martínez has been placed on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to his last start on May 8 with a right lat strain. For those that may have missed it, that is his throwing lat. If all goes well, Carlos will be available again after May 18. Let's hope it does as he has has been the team's most valuable pitcher. In 50 innings, Carlos has put up a 1.62 ERA (over-performing a 3.41 FIP) with a 22.4% strikeout rate to a 1.5% walk rate, amassing 1.0 fWAR in eight starts. Also, he dances.

Per Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post Dispatch, Aledmys Diaz may make his first start Monday since going on the disabled list on July 31 with a fractured thumb. Diaz was activated Sunday, but did not play. According to Hummel, Diaz appears eager to help the team, especially in the thick of a playoff race.

reinforcements are on the way

Matt Holliday and Aledmys Diaz are poised to return this season.

Seth Maness to DL, Sam Tuivailala to St. Louis

Matt Holliday is out and Carlos Gomez is available

With the Cardinals losing an outfielder, the team could go outside the organization for another.

Matt Holliday has a fractured thumb

It turns out the rumors were true all along. Here I thought Matt Holliday was bionic, held together by beautifully soldered silver. But I was wrong. He is a man of flesh and bone and now one of those bones is cracked after being hit by a pitch in Thursday's game. He has headed back the Lou for further evaluation. This blows. STOP HITTING THE BIRDOS IN THEIR HANDS.

Wacha to DL, Reyes to MLB, Weaver starts Saturday

Wacha pitched five innings last night, but will hit the disabled list. Alex Reyes' role not yet clear.

Matt Carpenter could be back today (Friday)!

After what feels like forever, but really was not actually that long considering, the Cardinals fearless leadoff man might return to the club Friday! Carpenter hit the fifteen day disabled list after straining an oblique muscle July 7. If you need me, I will be listening to the Turnpike Troubadour's Long Hot Summer Days on reapeat.

Randal Grichuk sent to minors, Jhonny Peralta, Brandon Moss return

Dean Kiekhefer also optioned with Jhonny Peralta, Brandon Moss, and Zach Duke added to the big league club.

Matt Carpenter leaves game with apparent injury

Matt Carpenter was pulled from Wednesday night's game after suffering what appears to be an injury to his right oblique/lower back. Matt Carpenter has easily been the Cadinals best hitter and one of the best hitters in the Nstional League this season. So yeah, that is not good at all.

Brayan Pena to disabled list again

Knee soreness sends him back to the disabled. Albert Rosario called up.

Brandon Moss to disabled list, Randal Grichuk returning

Moss is out with an ankle injury and Grichuk will have an opportunity to regain his status.

Whatever baseball god Aledmys Diaz angered is after his pound of flesh. Diaz, who was sidelined tonight after being hit by a foul ball near his right eye, left the dugout after being hit by another foul ball. Fortunately he escaped with just a bruise, but in order to avoid the apparent wrath of the angry diety, has decided to stay in the clubhouse for now.

Aledmys Diaz is going to be okay

Shortstop Aledmys Diaz exited the game Monday night against the Kansas City Royals during the top of the ninth inning after a foul ball bounced off the plate and hit him near his right eye. He was still undergoing routine tests, but he was able to report that although he was initially scared the damage had been worse, he considers himself lucky that it was not. Diaz will have a nice shiner, but appears to otherwise be okay as he was able to open his right eye and his vision was normal. The Cardinals expect him back in the lineup in a few days. THANK GOODNESS!
