Cardinals Place Wainwright on DL, Recall Brebbia

The St. Louis Cardinals announced Sunday the team has recalled John Brebbia from Memphis and placed Adam Wainwright on the 10-day DL, who is suffering right elbow inflammation.

“I think he seems OK with it. He doesn’t want it to get to the point where it was before,” manager Mike Matheny said. “What can he do proactively instead of being reactive to having it really flare up. He’s on a good program to get a little more rest, get a little more treatment with it to get ahead of it and then get back out there and compete. That’s the thought right now.”

Wainwright was originally scheduled to pitch Tuesday against New York, Weaver will slide into that game on regular rest and the rest of the rotation will follow suit according to Matheny.

Brebbia appeared in two games in relief for St. Louis earlier this season, registering 2.0 scoreless innings.

Wainwright is 1-2 with a 3.45 ERA this season.

Michael Porter Jr., a 6’10 guard only appeared in three games for the Missouri Tigers this season. Cuonzo Martin’s team failed to make it past the first round of the SEC Tournament or the NCAA Tournament after losing to Georgia and Florida State.

Porter Jr. ranked as the nation’s top recruit heading into the 2018 season, but missed the majority of the season with a back injury that he had to undergo surgery for.

Missouri fans will now await Jontay Porter’s decision on whether or not he will declare for the draft with his brother or return to the Tigers next season.

Players have until April 22nd to make their decisions.
