• The Kansas City Royals have claimed Maikel Cleto off waivers from Triple-A Memphis. The Cardinals acquired the 24-year-old right-hander in 2010 in a trade with the Mariners. He made one appearance in St. Louis this season, surrendering five earned runs on five hits (one homer) and one walk in 2 1/3 innings against the D-backs.

• Edward Mujica is 21-for-21 in save opportunities this season, which is the best start to a season for a Cardinals closer since Tom Henke went perfect in his first 22 save opportunities in 1995.
