The Cardinals may go to a four-man rotation for at least the upcoming week, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Derrick Goold writes , after Jeff Suppan joins the team on Monday.
The Cardinals will make a move Monday to add Suppan to the roster and the veteran right-hander will start Tuesday against the Mariners. St. Louis has an off day on Thursday and another one next Monday, so they could go with four starters and eight relievers for the time-being. Adam Wainwright starts Monday, Suppan goes Tuesday, rookie Jaime Garcia pitches on Wednesday and then the off day would allowed Chris Carpenter to pitch on normal rest Friday against Oakland, followed then by Wainwright and Suppan to finish the series before another off day.
The move would allow the Cardinals to return Adam Ottavino to the Triple-A rotation. Ottavino allowed six runs on nine hits in 3.2 innings on Saturday against the Diamondbacks.
