The Cardinals recalled Oviedo from Triple-A Memphis ahead of his scheduled start Tuesday versus the Cubs.

St. Louis will plug Oviedo back into the rotation for his 12th start of the season despite his less-than-stellar results to close the first half. Over his final four starts prior to being demoted to Triple-A, Oviedo posted a 6.11 ERA and 1.92 WHIP in 17.2 innings. With regular rotation members Jack Flaherty (oblique), Miles Mikolas (forearm) and Carlos Martinez (thumb) all residing on the 60-day injured list, the Cardinals are short on quality alternatives, so Oviedo will be given another chance to try and right the ship.
