Cardinals put Gorman on IL; Carlson set for surgery

The St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday placed infielder Nolan Gorman on the 10-day injured list and announced that outfielder Dylan Carlson will undergo season-ending ankle surgery.

Gorman strained his right hamstring while legging out an infield single in Tuesday’s win at Baltimore.

Gorman, 23, is batting .236 with an .805 OPS, 27 home runs and 76 RBIs in 119 games this season.

The Cardinals called up infielder Juniel Querecuto from Triple-A Memphis in a corresponding move.

Carlson, 24, has been on the IL since early August. He last played Aug. 9. Cardinals skipper Oli Marmol told reporters Wednesday that Carlson will have surgery on Tuesday on his left ankle and is facing a recovery period of eight to 12 weeks. Carlson has been playing through bone spurs.

Carlson is batting .219 (48-for-129) with five home runs and 27 RBIs in 76 games this season.
