As expected, veteran righthander Adam Wainwright is headed back to the disabled list after inflammation in his throwing elbow resurfaced over the weekend.

The team recalled right-handed pitcher Jack Flaherty from the AAA affiliate Memphis Redbirds.

Wainwright opened 2018 with a 4.00 ERA, 1.83 WHIP, 17.0% strikeout rate and 15.9% walk rate. He fanned a season-high 13 batters in his most recent start on May 9 at Oklahoma City.

This is Wainwright's third trip to the disabled list, including a stint to start the season due to a sore hamstring. He was activated from the 10-day DL in time for Sunday's start, but experienced continued problems with the elbow that landed him there. He lasted just seven outs, giving up three hits and two earned runs while striking out three.
