The St. Louis Cardinals placed infielder/outfielder Tommy Edman on the 10-day injured list on Friday with right wrist inflammation

In a corresponding transaction, the Cardinals called up infielder Jose Fermin from Triple-A Memphis. He will join the Cardinals in Chicago, where they are playing three games against the White Sox heading into the All-Star break

Edman, 28, is making his first career stop on the IL in his fifth season. He is hitting .237 with seven home runs and 29 RBIs with a team-leading 14 stolen bases in 84 games.

He is eligible to be activated on July 17 when the Cardinals host the Miami Marlins

Fermin, 24, has yet to make his major league debut.

Acquired in a trade with the Cleveland Guardians in November, he has appeared in 17 minor league games at three levels this season and is hitting .180 (11-for-61) with three doubles, two home runs and four RBIs.
