Garcia will be placed on the disabled list with a left shoulder injury, mlb.com's Jenifer Langosch reports.
Garcia's 2012 campaign was largely spoiled by a shoulder injury, so the level of concern is even higher than it would be for most pitchers. The Cardinals have yet to name a replacement starter or comment on the extent and exact nature of Garcia's injury, but hopefully we will know more soon. Fantasy owners should at least be prepared for the possibility that this could be serious.
Cingrani was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Saturday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
Although he pitched very well, with a 41:9 K:BB over six starts, Mike Leake held his own since Cingrani's promotion and the young lefty is simply the odd-man out for now until the Reds have another opening in their rotation later this season.
Garza (arm) will join the Cubs' rotation Tuesday against the Pirates, Bruce Miles of the Daily Herald reports.
Carlos Villanueva has been sent to the bullpen to make room in the rotation for Garza. As it lines up, Garza will make two road starts in his first week back with a second outing coming Sunday at Cincinnati.

: Scratched with Eye Irritation
Morse has been scratched from the lineup Friday with eye irritation, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
While Morse is forced to sit, Endy Chavez will draw into the lineup to play right field Friday night.
Kinsler was scratched from Friday's lineup with bruised ribs, Anthony Andro of Fox Sports Southwest reports.
Leury Garcia will play second base for the Rangers, while Elvis Andrus is moving into the leadoff role Friday night. Consider Kinsler day-to-day until the team offers more details regarding the ailment.
Werth's (hamstring) return from the disabled list is likely to be pushed back a few days, The Washington Post reports.
Werth was expected to return Saturday, but tightness in his strained right hamstring forced him to miss Thursday's rehab game and is likely to consequently push back his return date. The exact amount of time Werth's return will be pushed back is unknown, but it should not be much longer, as his setback is not considered overly serious.
Noesi will start Thursday's game against the Yankees, MLB.com reports.
Noesi will start in place of Aaron Harang, who was scratched from his scheduled start Thursday due to lower back stiffness. Since being recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on April 18, Noesi has recorded a 3.86 ERA in three relief appearances.

: (Biceps) On Pace For Monday Return
Bailey (biceps) is on track to be activated from the disabled list Monday, Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald reports.
Bailey made it through a brief simulated game Thursday without issue, and he is set to return to rejoin the big club as long as he makes it through a Saturday rehab appearance without issue. Barring any setbacks, fantasy owners should plan on Bailey being available for next week's action.
Price (triceps) has been placed on the 15-day DL, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Price is currently dealing with a strained left triceps, and it's natural to wonder how long the injury has been affecting him. He has struggled so far this season, going 1-4 with a 5.24 ERA and a 1.436 WHIP. Hopefully the time off will be a blessing in disguise, as he will be able to regain his health. The Rays called up left-handed pitcher Alex Torres to take Price's spot on the roster.
