 MIAMI (AP) -Cardinals third baseman Scott Rolen flew back to St. Louis on Wednesday to have his sore shoulder examined by the team's doctor.
Manager Tony La Russa said he did not know the severity of the injury, but expects Rolen to meet the team Thursday in Atlanta for the Cardinals' four-game series against the Braves.
``I think he's fatigued,'' La Russa said. ``I know he's been taking a lot of batting practice lately. Sometimes you can overwork it.''
Rolen twice had shoulder surgery in 2005, when he played only 56 games. He returned to hit 22 home runs last season, but has only four this year. Except for the 2005 season, Rolen has hit 20 or more homers every year since 1997.
Brendan Ryan replaced Rolen in the lineup Wednesday night against the Florida Marlins. Rolen's primary backup, Scott Spiezio, is on the disabled list with a finger infection.
Rolen was 1-for-4 in the Cardinals' 4-0 loss Tuesday night to the Marlins. He turned a double play by making a diving stop and throwing from the ground, and appeared uninjured on the play.
