Description: A shoulder injury will send Cardinals left-hander Jaime Garcia to the disabled list, according to Jenifer Langosch of mlb.com.
Insight: Garcia had surgery on the labrum in his left shoulder last year and dealt with shoulder inflammation this spring. The Cardinals also announced Michael Wacha will go on the DL with a shoulder injury, so they will need to call up a starter to take over Garcia's spot as Carlos Martinez will assume Wacha's spot.

Description: Cardinals left-hander Jaime Garcia is scheduled to make his fourth start of the season Tuesday against the Kansas City.
Insight: Garcia's had mixed results in his three starts since coming off the DL, but perhaps most impressive is his 19/0 strikeout-to-walk ratio. He'll shoot for his second win of the year against the Royals, who have averaged a mere 3.7 runs per game over their last 10. If you're looking for streaming options, you could do a whole lot worse than Garcia.

Insight: Garcia is 3-1 with a 2.50 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP. The left-hander was injured for a good portion of last season, but he has been a solid fantasy starter when healthy as long as you can take the hit in WHIP.
