 ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Cardinals will place right-hander Jake Westbrook on the 15-day disabled list with elbow inflammation and select the contract of left-hander John Gast in time for Tuesday night's game against the New York Mets.
To make room for Gast on the major league roster, the team said Sunday that injured closer Jason Motte will be moved to the 60-day disabled list while rehabilitating from reconstructive elbow surgery.
Westbrook is 2-1 with a 1.62 ERA in seven starts.
Gast was the team's minor league player of the month in April, going 3-1 with a 1.16 ERA in six starts at Triple-A Memphis. He began the season with 32 consecutive scoreless innings.
