 ST. LOUIS (AP) -Cardinals shortstop David Eckstein came off the 15-day disabled list Thursday, the biggest in a flurry of moves St. Louis made heading into the first game after the All-Star break.
Eckstein has been on the DL since June 14 with a knot in the middle of his back that has cleared up after anti-inflammatory injections last week. He was the World Series MVP last season - this year, the banged-up Cardinals are 7 1/2 games behind Milwaukee in the NL Central.
The Cardinals put right-hander Todd Wellemeyer on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained elbow. He hurt himself when he banged his elbow on his knee following through on a pitch Sunday.
Injured center fielder Jim Edmonds is close enough to returning that he'll accompany the team on its 10-game trip to start the second half on Friday night.
Edmonds has been on the DL since June 16 with a pinched nerve in his lower back. The Cardinals had been anticipating he'd return later in the month but the timetable has been moved up after Edmonds' successful workout on Wednesday.
Infielder Brendan Ryan was optioned to Triple-A Memphis to make room for Eckstein and right-hander Andy Cavazos was recalled from Memphis to replace Wellemeyer.
