ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The Cardinals will be without starting pitcher Mike Leake’s services for a week, and possibly more.
The team announced Monday it had placed the right-hander on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 22.
Leake has a case of the shingles.
Left-handed pitcher Dean Kiekhefer has been called up from AAA Memphis to take Leake’s roster spot.
