ST. LOUIS (AP) - Cardinals setup man Jordan Walden has been placed on the 15-day disabled list because of an inflamed right biceps. Reliever Sam Tuivailala was recalled from Triple-A Memphis.

Walden stopped warming up in the eighth inning Saturday. He’s 0-1 with an 0.87 ERA in 12 games with 12 strikeouts in 10 1-3 innings.

The Cardinals also said they would recall lefty Tyler Lyons from Memphis to start Tuesday against the Cubs.

The 22-year-old Tuivailala has three saves and has not allowed an earned run in eight appearances covering nine innings at Memphis. The saves have come in his last three appearances.

Tuivailala was a third-round draft pick in 2010.
