Cardinals place Lohse on disabled list

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Cardinals have placed right-hander Kyle Lohse on the 15-day disabled list with a forearm injury after he had to leave his latest start early.

Also Friday, infielder Tyler Greene was recalled from AAA Memphis.

Lohse aggravated an injury sustained when hit by a pitch last month on a diving stop of Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto's bunt single in the third inning Wednesday night. He was taken out with a 3-1 count on Jerry Hairston Jr., the next hitter.

Lohse was squaring around to bunt when he was hit by a pitch May 23 by the Royals' Ron Mahay. Lohse threw eight scoreless innings in that game but then missed his next start due to numbness and a burning sensation in the forearm.
