The St. Louis Cardinals purchased the contract of SP Marco Gonzales from Double-A Springfield and transfer SP Joe Kelly (hamstring) to the 60-day disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: St. Louis knows how to breed pitching, and Gonzales has put up a healthy 78 K and 1.89 ERA in 76 1/3 total minors frames this season. He's worth a trial in deep mixed leagues, but he may not have a long stay, depending on Kelly's timetable to return.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Marco Gonzales will start Wednesday, June 25, in what will be his major league debut. Gonzales was the team's first-round pick in 2013.
Fantasy Tip: This will likely be a one-start deal with Tyler Lyons possibly taking the next turn. If he impresses, we could see Gonzales back for another spot start. Give him a look in NL-only leagues, but temper expectations.
