Ponce de Leon will make a spot start in place of Adam Wainwright (back) on Friday against Arizona, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Wainwright was scratched with back spasms, though he's yet to be placed on the injured list, so Ponce de Leon may be in line for just a single start. He owns an excellent 2.16 ERA and 0.92 WHIP in 25 innings for the Cardinals this season, starting three games and appearing in another three out of the bullpen.
