Cardinals placing Jaime Garcia on DL

While Jaime Garcia threw a bullpen without issue on Saturday, the left hander will end up on the disabled list anyway.

Garcia complained of discomfort with his groin when he arrived to the ballpark on Saturday and will now wait until after the All-Star break to make his next start.

With Garcia out, the Cardinals will rely on Tyler Lyons and Tim Cooney for a doubleheader on Tuesday against the Chicago Cubs.

In seven starts Garcia has pitched well going 3-3 with a 1.69 ERA. Performance has never been the issue, it has always been health.
