The St. Louis Cardinals placed left-hander Kwang Hyun Kim on the 10-day injured list Monday with left elbow inflammation.

The move is retroactive to Sunday for Kim, who is making his third trip to the injured list this season. His previous two stints were due to back-related issues.

The Cardinals also activated right-hander Daniel Ponce de Leon from the 10-day IL. He had been sidelined with a right shoulder injury.

Kim, 33, is 6-6 with a 3.36 ERA in 19 starts this season. He owns a 9-6 record with a 2.84 ERA in 27 career games (26 starts) since debuting with the Cardinals in 2020.

Ponce de Leon, 29, is 1-1 with two saves and a 7.03 ERA in 17 appearances (two starts) this season. He last pitched for the Cardinals on June 22. He sports a 3-8 mark with three saves and a 4.35 ERA in 50 career games (22 starts) with St. Louis since 2018.
