ST. LOUIS -- The Cardinals placed relief pitcher Jordan Walden on the 15-day disabled list before Sunday's game against the Pirates and have recalled fellow righty Sam Tuivailala from Triple-A Memphis.
Walden complained of biceps discomfort earlier this week and was held out of the past few games. The decision to put Walden on the DL came after he tried unsuccessfully to get ready for Saturday's game.
