The St. Louis Cardinals made some moves due to injuries yesterday (Monday).

Starting pitcher Jack Flaherty has been placed on the 15-day injured list and outfielder Harrison Bader was placed on the 10-day injured list.

Flaherty was placed on the injured list with a right shoulder strain after going just two innings on Sunday against the Chicago Cubs due to a dead arm.

Bader, has been bothered by foot trouble for weeks, and landed on the injured list due to right foot plantar fasciitis.

The Peacock network will stream the July 3rd game between the Kansas City Royals and Detroit Tigers without announcers in the booth.

Instead, reporters will take fans around Detroit’s Comerica Park and view the game from different vantage points.

NBC Sports executive producer Sam Flood says it is an opportunity to try something different and bring the fan experience to TV.
