Cardinals Call Up Steven Hill

The St. Louis Cardinals placed pitcher Jeff Suppan on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with a sore groin.
Suppan developed soreness running on Monday after his scheduled start Sunday against the Marlins was rained out in Miami. The veteran right-hander has made eight starts for St. Louis since being signed in early June and has a 4.14 earned run average and 1-4 record.
The 35-year-old was released by Milwaukee earlier this season after appearing in 15 games, making two starts, and posting a 7.84 ERA and 0-2 mark.
To fill out the roster, catcher Steven Hill had his contract purchased from Double-A Springfield. Hill was leading the Texas League with 22 homers and 86 runs batted in at the time of his callup. He holds a .280 average in 93 games this year, having earned Texas League All-Star honors for a second straight season in 2010.
