Left-hander Tyler Lyons had been filling in for injured right-hander Joe Kelly in the Cardinals’ rotation, but now he’s hurt too.

Lyons allowed nine runs in yesterday’s blowout loss to the Cubs and now the Cardinals have placed him on the disabled list with a strained shoulder. No word yet on who’ll be next to step into St. Louis’ rotation, but oft-injured left-hander Jaime Garcia has been rehabbing in the minors and could be just about ready.

Lyons, who was called up from Triple-A in mid-April following Kelly’s hamstring injury, now has a 5.19 ERA in 78 career innings at age 26, although his ERA was 4.38 ERA before Monday’s implosion.

    Should have placed him on the DL prior to yesterday’s start against the Cubs!

      Nope. Not a chance. Way to easy Westcoast. Let’s just trot him out to the mound, let him get shelled for 9 runs and ultimately get our asses handed to us by a score of 17 – 5! Fun stuff!

    mommas, don’t let your babies grow up to be pitchers.

    Seems like only yesterday our problem was what to do with all the excellent pitchers.
