|Cardinals Pitcher Placed on D.L.
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Brad Penny has been put on the 15-day disabled list with a strain his upper back, although the team believes it's a minor injury.
General manager John Mozeliak said Saturday that Penny could recover in 7-10 days. The Cardinals had worried the right-hander might be lost for an extended period after getting pulled before the fourth inning of Friday's start.
Right-hander P.J. Walters was recalled from Triple-A Memphis. Mozeliak said Walters, who had been scheduled to start Saturday in the minors, could get a start while Penny is out. Penny is 3-4 with a 3.23 ERA.
