ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Cardinals second baseman Skip Schumaker and reserve outfielder Allen Craig have been placed on the 15-day disabled list entering a six-game homestand.

Schumaker has a right triceps strain and Craig has a left groin strain. The moves were announced Tuesday before the start of a three-game series against the Washington Nationals.

Infielder Nick Punto was activated from the 15-day disabled list and first baseman Mark Hamilton was recalled from Triple-A Memphis.Punto missed most of spring training after surgery in February for
a sports hernia.

The 26-year-old Hamilton was a supplemental draft pick in 2006 out of Tulane and played nine games for the Cardinals last September. He was hitting .297 with one home run and four RBIs in 11 games at Memphis.
