 NEW YORK (AP) -The St. Louis Cardinals added lefty Mike Maroth to their roster Monday and made room by putting yet another pitcher on the 15-day disabled list, sidelining reliever Tyler Johnson.
The Cardinals got Maroth from Detroit last Friday in a trade for a player to be named. Maroth started Monday night against the Mets.
Johnson has been bothered by tendinitis in his left biceps. The move with the left-hander was made retroactive to June 19.
Johnson was 1-1 with a 4.32 ERA in 37 relief appearances. He joins pitchers Chris Carpenter, Mark Mulder, Braden Looper and Josh Kinney on the Cardinals' DL.
