Cardinals put reliever Jordan Hicks (inflammation) on IL

The St. Louis Cardinals put right-handed relief pitcher Jordan Hicks on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with right elbow inflammation.

The Cardinals recalled right-handed pitcher Johan Oviedo from Triple-A Memphis, and he will start Tuesday night’s game against the New York Mets.

Hicks was removed from Saturday’s game in Pittsburgh with what was first called forearm tightness. Hicks was sent back to St. Louis where tests revealed the elbow inflammation.

Hicks is 0-0 with a 5.40 ERA in 10 games this season, striking out 10 and walking 10 in his first big league action since June 2019. Hicks underwent Tommy John surgery in June 2019 and opted out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19 concerns.

Oviedo will be making his third appearance (second start) of the 2021 season. The 6-foot-5 hurler has fanned 11 in 9 2/3 innings, allowing just five hits and three runs.
