CINCINNATI (AP) - The St. Louis Cardinals put left-handed reliever Tyler Lyons on the 15-day disabled list with a sore right knee on Wednesday before the second game of their series against the Cincinnati Reds.

The Cardinals recalled left-hander Dean Kiekhefer, who was sent to Triple-A on Tuesday when St. Louis added left-hander Zach Duke to the bullpen. They acquired Duke from the White Sox on Sunday.

Lyons was 2-0 with a 3.38 ERA in 30 games. Kiekhefer made his major league debut on May 14. He appeared in 14 games and gave up seven runs in 13 innings for a 4.85 ERA.

The moves come a day after the Cardinals got regulars Brandon Moss and Jhonny Peralta back from injury and put shortstop Aledmys Diaz on the DL with a broken right thumb.
