ST. LOUIS, MO - The St. Louis Cardinals placed infielder Tyler Greene on the 15-day disabled list Sunday.

The move allows the team to put newly acquired pitcher Jake Westbrook on the active roster.

Westbrook was acquired on Saturday as part of a three-team deal involving San Diego and Cleveland. He will start Monday's game against Houston.

Greene, who is suffering from a right hand contusion, has batted .265 with two homers and eight RBI over 28 games this season.
