According to an official statement released by MLB Roster Moves on Thursday afternoon, the St. Louis Cardinals have placed infielder Jhonny Peralta on the club’s 10-day disabled list. While the transaction has been listed as retroactive to back on April 16, Peralta has been forced to the sideline due to an upper respiratory issue.
In what has become a corresponding roster move, the Cardinals have also elected to activate left-handed relief pitcher Tyler Lyons from the club’s 10-day disabled list.
The 34-year-old infielder has already appeared in eight games as a member of the Cardinals thus far into the 2017 regular season. While receiving 25 at bats in all so far, Peralta is currently batting .120 with two walks, one run scored and nine strikeouts. It is also worth noting that he has yet to register a single RBI or extra-base hit in 2017.
Prior to arriving in St. Louis back in 2014, Peralta notably spent time with both the Cleveland Indians and Detroit Tigers along the way.
On the other hand, the 29-year-old southpaw in Lyons is currently in the midst of his fifth big league campaign, all of which have come as a member of the Cardinals. However, he has yet to appear in a single game for the major league club thus far into 2017.
Last season, Lyons made 30 regular season relief appearances for the Cardinals while amassing a single-season career-best 3.38 ERA across an even 48 innings of work. He also managed a perfect 2-0 record, four holds and 46 strikeouts against 14 walks.
