Mike Zunino will be called up from Triple-A Tacoma ahead of Thursday's game against the Orioles.
He'll replace Steve Clevenger, who broke a bone in his right hand during Wednesday night's contest. Zunino has had a productive year in the minors, hitting .282 with 15 HR and 52 RBI in 69 games for Tacoma. He'll serve as the backup for starter Chris Iannetta.
Aledmys Diaz (eye) remains out of the Cardinals starting lineup on Thursday.
It'll be the third straight contest the young shortstop has missed after getting hit by a foul ball above his eye during Monday's game. He could return at some point over the weekend.
Yadier Molina is absent from the Cardinals starting lineup on Thursday.
It'll be Brayan Pena making his first start of the season behind the dish in his place. Look for Molina to be back in there on Friday.
Yan Gomes is not in the Indians' starting lineup Thursday against the Blue Jays.
Gomes is just getting a breather. Chris Gimenez will catch for right-hander Carlos Carrasco. Gomes has struggled all year, hitting just .184 with eight homers in 212 at-bats.
Stephen Piscotty (foot) is not in the Cardinals starting lineup on Thursday.
Piscotty bruised his left foot while attempting to make a diving catch during Wednesday's game, so he'll sit out on Thursday as a precautionary measure. Brandon Moss will start in right field with Kolten Wong manning center.
