Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch said on 590 AM today that Dexter Fowler’s right shoulder injury could be “more significant” and “more debilitating” than Stephen Piscotty’s hamstring injury. Fowler strained his shoulder during a diving catch attempt last night.

Piscotty has already been placed on the disabled list. The Cardinals haven’t made an official move with Fowler yet, but it should happen as soon as they hear back on his MRI.

To make up for the loss of Piscotty, the Cards promoted Tommy Pham. Assuming Fowler is hitting the DL too, another move will be required.
