Just two days after lasting only two miserable innings against the Houston Astros on Tuesday night, St. Louis Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia has landed on the disabled list.

Garcia, who had missed his previous start before Tuesday with a tender elbow, was placed on the 15 day disabled list with what the Cardinals official website has termed as a strained shoulder.

Garcia, for the most part, has struggled this season, posting just a 3-4 record with a 4.48 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP in eleven starts this season.

Replacing Garcia on the roster is reliever Fernando Salas, who was demoted in May after being highly ineffective out of the Cardinals bullpen to start the season.
