Never good news when any pitcher has arm trouble, but such is the case with Kevin Siegrist.
He’s been placed on the disabled list with a left forearm strain, according to the Cardinals Twitter account. Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch first reported on the concern with Siegrist a couple hours ago.
Sam Freeman has been recalled by the Cardinals to take Siegrist’s roster spot. He was sent back to Memphis last Sunday when tonight starter, Jaime Garcia, was activated from the DL.
Here’s hoping for the best for Siegrist, even though a forearm strain on a pitching arm rarely ends with good news.
Game time tonight is 6:15 p.m. Central Time, with Garcia facing Tony Cingrani in Cincinnati.
