News
Cardinals starting pitcher Joe Kelly suffered his first loss in four starts since coming off the disabled list Wednesday at San Diego. However, he's struggled for the most part since his activation despite the one loss. 

The right-hander has posted a 7.32 ERA over his last four starts, and Kelly said his struggles have been related to poor command of his fastball, per MLB.com.

"It's running a lot," Kelly said of the pitch. "It's just something that I have to learn how to control here and be better at next time. I've been throwing good offspeed pitches, I feel, in all these games. My curveball was my best pitch (Wednesday). I should have thrown it 100 times. But you can't do that, obviously. It definitely all starts with the fastball."

Cardinals starting pitcher Shelby Miller (8-8) tossed a quality start and got back to .500, leading his team past the Padres on Thursday. The right-hander permitted two runs on three hits and no walks while striking out five over six innings of a 6-2 victory. Home runs to Jed Gyorko and Wil Venable proved to be the only damage.

Over his last two starts covering 11 2/3 innings, Miller has allowed only four earned runs. He owns a 4.14 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP over 121 2/3 innings. He will make his next start Wednesday at home against Boston.

News
Just a week after general manager John Mozeliak speculated that the Cardinals might send outfielder Oscar Taveras back to the minors, the team cleared space for him to play everyday at the trade deadline.

With the trade to send Allen Craig to Boston Thursday, the Cardinals will likely need to depend on Taveras to play right field every day down the stretch. Taveras has been splitting time evenly with Craig in right field, starting 11 of the last 22 games. The top prospect hasn't lit the league on fire yet, hitting just .208/.238/.271 in the first 96 at-bats of his career.

News
Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha will undergo an MRI on his injured shoulder Monday, and if the tests go how the team expects, he'll begin a throwing program soon after, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Wacha is eyeing a return to the team in September, and while he could come back as a reliever, general manager John Mozeliak "has a feeling" he'll return as a starter. His role for the remainder of the season will be determined by whatever the team believes is best for his long-term health.

He's slated to face the Brewers Sunday.
