Cardinals | Jake Westbrook to DL

The St. Louis Cardinals placed SP Jake Westbrook (back) on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back strain Friday, Aug. 23, and recalled SP Carlos Martinez from Triple-A Memphis in a corresponding move. Martinez will be used in relief and SP Tyler Lyons will move into Westbrook's rotation spot to start Monday, Aug. 26. The team doesn't think the injury will keep Westbrook out for the rest of the season. He had allowed 30 earned runs in 26 innings in his last five starts.

Fantasy Tip: Lyons will become an option for mixed leaguers looking for some pitching help.
