Cardinals place Wacha and Garcia on DL

Denver, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - The St. Louis Cardinals have placed starting pitchers Michael Wacha and Jaime Garcia on the disabled list with shoulder injuries.

Wacha's injury is a stress reaction in his right shoulder, which was found following a CT scan and an MRI last week. The 22-year-old continued to feel tightness in his right shoulder while throwing Sunday.

He is 5-5 with a 2.79 ERA in 15 starts this season.

Garcia, who has suffered with discomfort in his shoulder each of the past three seasons, missed most of last season after undergoing surgery in May 2013 to remedy a labrum tear. This season, the left-hander is 3-1 with a 4.12 ERA across seven starts.

In corresponding moves, St. Louis has recalled right-handed pitcher Eric Fornataro and infielder Pete Kozma from Triple-A Memphis.

Fornataro went 1-2 with a 3.27 ERA and four saves in 19 games with Memphis, while Kozma, who began the season on the Cardinals Opening Day roster, has hit .234 in 59 games with Memphis.
