Cards to Put Garcia on DL, Braced for Long Absence


Goold, Derrick, St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia will go on the disabled list Sunday with intensifying pain in his left shoulder that could soon lead to the surgery he sought to avoid last fall.

Garcia felt enough discomfort in his pitching shoulder Friday night during his 5 1/3-inning start that he considered asking out of the game while pitching it, he said. The Cardinals announced Saturday that a scan of the joint that morning revealed the same structural issues that caused concern last season and led to several doctors suggesting surgery. He will go on the 15-day disabled list Sunday and visit Dr. James Andrews early in the week.

The Cardinals are bracing for an extended absence.

"At this point it's worse," Garcia said Saturday. "There's a lot more pain than last year. I basically tried to take care of it, doing little things here and there. It went downhill, got worse and worse. I'm very concerned."

Said GM John Mozeliak: "All indications seem like this is not good."

The Cardinals will promote reliever Mitchell Boggs from Class AAA to take Garcia's spot on the roster. The pitcher who will take his spot in the rotation is still under discussion. The return of Boggs indicates the likelihood the Cardinals will move one of the current relievers into the rotation for at least Garcia's next scheduled start, Wednesday in San Diego. Seth Maness and Carlos Martinez were recently starters in the minors; Joe Kelly competed for a spot in the rotation during spring training. Mozeliak acknowledged that it could be a push to expect Kelly to throw more than 75 pitches this far removed from starting. Maness has that obvious edge.

Veteran Chris Carpenter continues to make progress in his unexpected comeback from nerve trouble in his shoulder and back soreness. He threw three simulated innings Saturday and could be set to make a rehab start in early June. Carpenter is being conditioned as a starter and Mozeliak agreed that the righty has increasingly become a factor. Garcia is the second starter in the past seven days to go on the DL, joining Jake Westbrook, who will miss at least two more starts with elbow inflammation and scar tissue buildup.

"When we were asking these questions two weeks ago, it's like who's spot is he going to take? …
