Cardinals place Piscotty on DL with hamstring injury

ATLANTA (AP) The St. Louis Cardinals have placed outfielder Stephen Piscotty on the 10-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain and recalled outfielder Tommy Pham from Triple-A Memphis.

Pham will be with the team for Friday night's game at the Atlanta Braves.

Piscotty suffered the injury running to first base on his grounder in the second inning of Thursday night's 5-4 loss to Milwaukee. Jose Martinez replaced Piscotty in right field.

Cardinals center fielder Dexter Fowler left the game with a strained right shoulder, leaving the team in need of outfield depth.

Pham appeared in 78 games with St. Louis last season and was hitting .283 with four homers and 19 RBI for Memphis.
