MILWAUKEE — St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left Achilles and left ankle injury, the team says, and could be out much longer. Reports say he could miss the rest of the season.

The 33-year-old pitcher was injured while batting in the top of the fifth inning over a 5-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday night. The injuries occurred after Wainwright broke from the batter’s box on a fifth-inning pop-up.

Wainwright was expected to return to St. Louis with the team after Sunday’s game for an MRI on Monday.

Catcher Cody Stanley has been recalled from Memphis-Triple A, the team said Sunday.
