The Cardinals placed John Brebbia (elbow) on the 60-day injured list.
Brebbia underwent Tommy John surgery earlier this month. He'll be sidelined into the 2021 season and holds no fantasy value at this time.

Brebbia dealt with elbow discomfort in Spring Training, and ultimately needed Tommy John surgery to correct the issue. He will miss the entire 2020 season. Brebbia played a key role in Cardinals' bullpen, recording a 3.59 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and a 87:27 K:BB across 72 2/3 innings in 2019. Ryan Helsley should see some additional work with Brebbia sidelined for the year.
John Brebbia (2-3) picked up the win Wednesday against the Mariners, tossing 2.1 perfect relief innings with six strikeouts.
This was Brebbia's longest appearance of the year, and he looked dominant. Through 37 relief appearances, Brebbia has a 3.21 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 52:15 K:BB.
John Brebbia pitched a perfect inning Sunday, striking out one batter.
Brebbia was terrific last season for the Cardinals, but failed to earn an Opening Day roster spot. Brebbia's stay might be short with Greg Holland slated to join the Cardinals soon.
John Brebbia pitched a scoreless fifth Tuesday and recorded two strikeouts and allowed one hit.
Brebbia has been effective through his eight appearances this spring. Brebbia should have a leg up on Mike Mayers and Josh Lucas due to his 2.44 ERA, 0.93 WHIP in 51.2 innings in his rookie season last year.
