Cardinals place right-hander Nick Robertson (elbow) on IL

The St. Louis Cardinals placed right-hander Nick Robertson on the 15-day injured list Sunday because of right elbow inflammation.

Robertson last pitched May 19, and the move is retroactive to Thursday.

In a corresponding move, the Cardinals recalled right-hander Andre Pallante from Triple-A Memphis.

Robertson, 25, has a 4.38 ERA with two walks and 14 strikeouts in 12⅓ innings over eight relief appearances since he was promoted to St. Louis on April 21. He appeared in a combined 18 games (one start) for the Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox in 2023 before he was traded by Boston to St. Louis in December.

Pallante, 25, is 0-1 with a 6.30 ERA, 5 walks and 6 strikeouts in 10 innings over nine relief appearances this season for the Cardinals. He has pitched in 118 games (10 starts) since his major league debut with St. Louis in 2022 and is 10-7 with a 3.92 ERA, 75 walks and 122 strikeouts in 186 innings.
