RHP JOHN BREBBIA RECALLED FROM MEMPHIS (AAA)
MINNEAPOLIS, MN – May 16, 2018 – The St. Louis Cardinals announced prior to today’s game that they have placed right-handed pitcher Luke Gregerson (right shoulder impingement) on the 10-day disabled list and recalled right-handed pitcher John Brebbia from Memphis (AAA).
Gregerson, 34, worked 1/3 of an inning in relief last night, allowing a pair of runs. He’s appeared in a total of 12 games this season, allowing eight runs on eight hits in 8.1 innings pitched.
Brebbia, who was charged with the loss in the Cardinals 2-1 defeat in 13 innings last Saturday (May 12) against the Padres, despite striking out four in 2.0 innings, is 0-1 with a 2.70 ERA in six relief appearances. He’s struck out 14 in his 10.0 innings pitched.
The Cardinals have had four pitchers go on the disabled list in the past week: Carlos Martínez (right lat strain), Tyler Lyons (mid back strain), Adam Wainwright (right elbow inflammation) and now Gregerson.
