The St. Louis Cardinals placed outfielder Tyler O’Neill on the 10-day injured list with a right groin strain as part of a flurry of moves on Sunday.

O’Neill, who left Saturday’s 9-5 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers in the third inning, is averaging .143 through eight games this season. He also has a home run and three RBIs.

The Cardinals also sent right-hander Jake Woodford to the team’s alternate training site and recalled right-hander Johan Oviedo and outfielder Lane Thomas to fill the corresponding roster spots.

Woodford has made two relief appearances this season, giving up two runs, two hits and four walks in four innings.
