Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong is headed to the disabled list with an injury to his left shoulder. Shane Robinson has been recalled from Triple-A Memphis.

The shoulder has bothered Wong for quite some time, as he exited in the fifth inning of a game against the Royals on June 5, and missed three additional games before returning on the 10th. Entering Saturday afternoon’s game against the Phillies, Wong had compiled a .077/.077/.154 slash line in 26 plate appearances dating back to June 10. He was not in the lineup, as Mark Ellis got the start instead.

Wong, 23, has a .228/.282/.304 slash line with one home run, 16 RBI, and nine stolen bases in his first full season in the big leagues.

    Koo-koo-ka-choo, Mr. Robinson, Matheny loves you more than we can grasp.

    I am kinda surprised it is Robinson. The announcers today were actually thinking a middle infielder would be called up.

    I was rooting for Kozma, but I am sentimental.

      I would have called up Garcia. Wong is, after all, an IF, and Robinson hasn’t hit any better than Grichuk or Taveras.

      Oh, if you’re sentimental for Kozma, I’ve invented the idea of the Pete Kozma Line, as the sabermetric equivalent of the Mendoza Line: http://socraticgadfly.blogspot.com/2014/04/can-billy-hamilton-break-pete-kozma-line.html

    I wonder why they don’t send PB down before he drops below the. 200 mark.
