The Cardinals transferred Walden (lat) to the 60-day DL on Monday. Walden, who has been on the DL since April 3, will miss more time as he recovers from a Grade 2 lat strain. Walden has only pitched 10.1 innings between 2015 and 2016 because of injuries, so don't expect much even if he does come back this season.

Walden has only pitched 10.1 innings between 2015 and 2016 because of injuries, so don't expect much for Walden even if he does come back this season.
Walden has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 lat strain and is expected to miss a few months, MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch reports. Walden had been projected as a middle reliever, but will join Mitch Harris on the disabled list to start the season. He had already been placed on the 15-day DL, but a transfer to the 60-day list could be on tap if the aforementioned timetable holds true.
Walden (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day DL on Saturday, MLB.com reports. The DL move is retroactive to March 31, meaning that Walden won't be able to pitch for the Cardinals until at least mid-April. He was sidelined for the latter portion of spring training due to the shoulder injury.
Walden (shoulder) will undergo an MRI sometime on Friday, Cardinals GM John Mozeliak told St. Louis Baseball Weekly on Thursday. It was announced Wednesday that Walden's shoulder would keep him off the Opening Day roster, as he will begin the season on the disabled list. But it's still unclear how long he will be out or what the extent of his injury is, and we'll be able to add some clarity to his return and timetable once he is evaluated.Walden posted a 0.87 ERA in 10.1 innings with the Cardinals last season as he worked his way back to the majors and could see some setup work if he is able to get healthy.
