Cardinals place Steven Matz (shoulder) on 15-day IL

The St. Louis Cardinals placed starting pitcher Steven Matz on the 15-day injured list Monday due to a left shoulder impingement.

What It Means:

Matz was pulled from Sunday's start against the Pittsburgh Pirates after throwing just four pitches. He will be eligible to return June 7, but it's possible that the left-hander will remain out longer. The Cardinals recalled fellow southpaw Matthew Liberatore from Triple-A Memphis in a corresponding roster move.

Excluding Sunday's abbreviated start, Matz is averaging 24.4 FanDuel points per outing this season. He owns a 6.03 ERA with a much more encouraging 3.92 xERA while registering a 26.8% strikeout rate and a 4.9% walk rate.
