Cardinals Division Series roster substitution approved


Major League Baseball announced today that it has approved a roster substitution for the St. Louis Cardinals due to a left rotator cuff strain and inflammation sustained by left-handed pitcher Jaime Garcia.  Garcia will be replaced on the Division Series roster by right-handed pitcher Shelby Miller.

MLB Postseason rules provide that a Club may request permission from the Commissioner’s Office to replace a player who is unable to play because of an injury.  The Commissioner’s Office may approve or disapprove the request based on the specific facts and circumstances.  In accordance with the rules, Garcia will be ineligible to return in the National League Championship Series, but would be eligible to return for the World Series if the Cardinals advance.
