 ST. LOUIS (AP) -The St. Louis Cardinals placed center fielder Jim Edmonds and pitcher Braden Looper on the 15-day disabled list Monday.
Edmonds has not been 100 percent since offseason surgery on his left foot and right shoulder. He's been hampered, especially running the bases and on defense, after perhaps accelerating his schedule in spring training in order to get ready for opening day.
Looper complained of shoulder stiffness after his last start on Friday. The right-hander is in the starting rotation for the first time in his career and is 6-6 with a 4.66 ERA in 14 appearances over 83 innings, nearly 10 more than he threw all last season.
Those two join pitchers Chris Carpenter (elbow) and Mark Mulder (shoulder), shortstop David Eckstein (back) and catcher Yadier Molina (broken wrist) on the DL.
Looper's injury means Kip Wells, 2-11 with a 6.93 ERA, stays in the rotation for now. Wells is scheduled to start Tuesday against the Royals.
The Cardinals recalled outfielder Skip Schumaker and left-handed reliever Troy Cate from Triple-A Memphis.
