ST. LOUIS (AP) The St. Louis Cardinals have put starting pitchers Michael Wacha and Jaime Garcia on the 15-day disabled list.

The Cardinals made the moves Sunday after their 5-3 win over Philadelphia.

The right-handed Wacha has a stress fracture in his pitching shoulder. He is 5-5 with a 2.79 ERA for the defending NL champions.

Garcia has re-aggravated his surgically repaired left shoulder. He is 3-1 with a 4.12 ERA.

St. Louis general manager John Mozeliak said it was too early to determine when the players will return. He said the team was aware of Garcia's soreness, but the Wacha ailment took him by surprise.
