The team has called up pitcher Jack Flaherty from Triple-A to replace Wainwright in the rotation.

Ahead of Tuesday's game in Minneapolis, the Cardinals have placed Adam Wainwright on the 10-day disabled list.

In two starts with the Cardinals this season, Flaherty is 0-1 with a 3.60 ERA and has struck out 11 batters in 10 innings pitched.

In five starts for Memphis, Flaherty was 4-1 with a 2.27 ERA (2 in the Pacific Coast League) and 41 strikeouts (T5th in PCL). He fanned a season-high 13 batters in his most recent start on May 9 at Oklahoma City.

The 36-year-old starter had previously been on the disabled list for elbow inflammation, and was activated for Sunday's game against the San Diego Padres at Petco Park. He lasted just seven outs, giving up three hits and two earned runs while striking out three.
