ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals transferred pitcher Chris Carpenter to the 60-day disabled list to clear a roster spot for rookie right-hander Joe Kelly's major league debut against Cleveland on Sunday.
The Cardinals also sent backup catcher Steven Hill to Triple-A Memphis.
Kelly, who turned 24 Saturday, was promoted from Memphis. Kelly, a third-round draft pick in 2009, was 2-5 with a 2.86 ERA that led the Pacific Coast League.
