The St. Louis Cardinals announced Sunday that they have placed third baseman Jedd Gyorko on the 10-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain.
First baseman Luke Voit has been recalled from Triple-A Memphis and was activated Sunday in time for the Cardinals’ game with the Tampa Bay Rays. In 114 games this season, Voit is batting .272 with 18 home runs and a team-high 64 RBIs.
Gyorko, 29, left Saturday night’s game in the eighth inning after running the bases.
Voit, 26, played in 43 big-league games this season, hitting .253 with three home runs and 13 RBIs. He originally was promoted from Memphis on June 25 and was sent back Aug. 21. In 74 games in the Pacific Coast League, he is batting .327 with 13 home runs and 50 RBIs.
He wears uniform No. 40.
The Cardinals have so far disabled 12 players this season. Gyorko joins starting pitcher Adam Wainwright, who went to the 10-day DL Aug. 18 with a right elbow impingement.
Closer Trevor Rosenthal most recently was placed on the 60-day disabled list. He faces the possibility of missing next season as well as he recovers from Tommy John surgery.
