Carlos Martinez is moving back to the bullpen.

Shelby Miller is going to take his rotation spot on Saturday at Wrigley Field. Martinez has fantastic raw stuff and massive upside, but the 22-year-old right-hander owns an ugly 4.57 ERA and 1.46 WHIP on the season.

Shelby Miller will start fort the Cardinals on Saturday at Wrigley Field.

Carlos Martinez is being moved back to the bullpen. Miller has not been good this season, but Martinez had gone just four innings in back-to-back starts. The Cardinals are expected to acquire a starter at the deadline, so both pitchers could be relievers by August.

Cardinals optioned LHP Nick Greenwood to Triple-A Memphis.

Greenwood posted a 4.74 ERA while striking out 10 over 19 relief innings with the big club. He was no longer needed with Kevin Siegrist back from the disabled list.

Cardinals activated LHP Kevin Siegrist from the 15-day disabled list.

Siegrist has been out since late May with a forearm strain and more recently a nerve issue in his shoulder, but he made it through five rehab appearances with no issues and is ready to rejoin the Cards' bullpen. Nick Greenwood has been optioned in a corresponding move.

The Cardinals are considering starting Shelby Miller on Saturday against the Cubs.

Miller was moved to the bullpen immediately following the All-Star break and made a relief appearance Sunday, but the Cards still view him as a starter over the long haul. However, they could still opt to keep him in the 'pen and start Carlos Martinez Saturday.

Allen Craig went 0-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts in the Cardinals' loss to the Rays on Tuesday.

Craig was an odd choice to start against Rays right-hander Jake Odorizzi with left-handed-hitting outfielder Oscar Taveras sitting on the Cardinals' bench. Taveras entered the game with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning and capped off an eight-pitch at-bat with a single into right-center field. Craig is hitting just .242/.292/.354 this season.

Adam Wainwright was lit up for six earned runs in 4 2/3 innings Tuesday in a loss to the Rays.

Wainwright had an abnormal amount of rest after pitching one inning in last week's 2014 MLB All-Star Game and looked off at home versus Tampa Bay, issuing four walks and surrendering six hits in the rough outing. He should be able to bounce back next week in San Diego. The ace right-hander still boasts a 2.02 ERA and 0.95 WHIP on the season.

Kevin Siegrist (forearm, shoulder) is expected to return to the Cardinals' bullpen on Wednesday.

Siegrist was placed on the disabled list at the end of May with a forearm strain and then developed a shoulder issue during his rehab. The 25-year-old left-hander is now finally back to 100 percent health, having made five scoreless appearances at Double-A Springfield.

Oscar Taveras is not in the Cardinals' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Rays.

Taveras has started only two of the Cardinals' last seven games and will for some reason sit Tuesday versus a right-hander -- Rays starter Jake Odorizzi. Taveras hasn't performed very well in his first taste of the major league level, but he's not going to get any better with only sporadic at-bats. Allen Craig is in right field in Tuesday's series-opener versus Tampa Bay.

An MRI and CT scan taken Monday on Michael Wacha's injured right shoulder showed encouraging results.

That's how Cardinals GM John Mozeliak described the test results to Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The hope is that Wacha will be able to begin a throwing program in two weeks. "This is positive," said Mozeliak. "This still could put him (pitching for the Cardinals) in early September."

Matt Holliday (head) went 0-for-2 with a walk and two strikeouts in his return to action Sunday night versus the Dodgers.

Holliday was lifted from the Cardinals' win on Saturday after an awkward collision with Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez. He passed a concussion test on Saturday night.

Peter Bourjos blasted a two-run homer off Clayton Kershaw on Sunday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Cardinals to victory.

Bourjos finished the evening 2-for-4 and also stole a pair of bases. His blast off Kershaw tied the game at 3-3 in the sixth inning. The two-hit attack raises Bourjos' line on the season to .230/.292/.360 to go along with three homers and 13 RBI.
Jul 20 - 11:48 PM

Tony Cruz had a rough night at the plate in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers, going 0-for-3 with a strikeout.

The veteran backstop is in the midst of a disappointing season offensively, slashing .222/.309/.278 with no homers and 11 RBI. While he's serving as the team's primary catcher with Yadier Molina sidelined, his fantasy value is resigned to NL-only formats.
Jul 20 - 11:46 PM

Carlos Martinez struggled in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Sunday night, allowing three runs on six hits over his four innings of work.

The young right-hander struck out five while walking two on the evening. His transition to the rotation hasn’t gone as swimmingly as the Cardinals had hoped, as he now sports a 4.57 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 62/30 K/BB ratio over 67 innings on the season. He’ll take on the Cubs in Chicago next weekend.
Jul 20 - 11:43 PM

Kolten Wong is not in the Cardinals starting lineup for Sunday night's matchup against the Dodgers.

It's just a routine day of rest for the hot-hitting second baseman, who is hitting .367/.424/.867 during an eight-game hitting streak. Mark Ellis will get the start in his place and hit seventh against Clayton Kershaw.
