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.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Shelby Miller (elbow) is optimistic he'll make his next start after being hit by a line drive Wednesday, Aug. 7, and suffering a right elbow contusion. "It feels good," said Miller, who began the day with an 11-7 record and a 2.89 ERA. "I mean, it doesn't feel good but it's better than it could be. I'm planning on making my next start." SP Jake Westbrook, who was scheduled to pitch Thursday, Aug. 8, came into the game in the second inning on three days of rest.
Fantasy Tip: Miller owners dodged a bullet with this one, as it looked pretty bad initially when he came off the field. Be prepared to start him if he makes his next start.
