|Cardinals Place RHP Linebrink on Disabled List
|MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals placed right-hander Scott Linebrink on the 15-day disabled list because of a problem in his right shoulder.
The Cardinals purchased right-hander Victor Marte from Triple-A Memphis and he is in uniform for Friday's game in Milwaukee. Marte has 30 career appearances, all with Kansas City.
Linebrink is sidelined with capsulitis, a condition that can result from inflammation.
Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak says there is ''no major structural damage'' to Linebrink's shoulder, and he should improve with rest.
Linebrink's move to the disabled list is retroactive to March 30.
