WASHINGTON — St. Louis Cardinals right-hander Joe Kelly has been put on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

Kelly got hurt while trying to beat out a bunt attempt in the fourth inning of the Cardinals’ 5-1 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday. He is 1-1 with a 0.59 ERA in three starts this season.
