ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Cardinals announced they have placed left-handed pitcher Brian Fuentes on the restricted list after Fuentes informed the team that he needed to step away from the game due to personal reasons. The Cardinals have recalled right-handed reliever Trevor Rosenthal from Memphis (AAA) and he will be in uniform for tonights series opener against Arizona. Rosenthal, 22, was 0-1 with a 4.50 ERA in four games (4.0 IP) with the Cardinals last month after making his Major League debut on July 18. He made two starts for Memphis following his option on August 1 and struck out 13 batters in 10.0 IP. Fuentes, signed as a minor league free agent last month, appeared in six games for the Cardinals, totaling 5.0 IP.

The conundrum of the St. Louis offense

It seems to be one of the great mysteries in Major League Baseball this year: The St. Louis Cardinals have one of the top offenses both on paper and statistically, yet they go through stretches where they can hardly score at all. And though there really is no good time for a team in the middle of a playoff race to slump, the Cards have become really good at maximizing their bad timing...

Diamondbacks-Cardinals Preview

(AP) -- Jaime Garcia's return to the St. Louis Cardinals' rotation may be just days away, and that means someone has to go.
