Cards place Kelly on DL, call for reinforcements

(STLToday.com) If the Cardinals elect to move Carlos Martinez into the rotation as they indicated during spring training they would at some point this season, then at least they'll have the manpower.

The Cardinals placed righty Joe Kelly on the 15-day disabled list this afternoon with a strained hamstring.

The move assures that Kelly, who returned to St. Louis today to have his leg examined by the Cardinals' team physicians, will miss at least three starts. His next scheduled start was to be Monday against the Mets at Citi Field.

The Cardinals could promote Tyler Lyons for that start -- he pitched on Wednesday for Class AAA Memphis and would be on normal rest. Or, they could shift to eighth-inning arm Martinez, who Kelly edged with incumbency for the spot in the rotation this past spring.
