Parisi season over

According to the Official Web Site of the St. Louis Cardinals, pitcher Mike Parisi's season must come to a close early.

In a recent start for affiliate Class AAA Memphis, the Redbirds' hurler had to come out of the game due to injury to his right elbow.

The injury has been described in a Matthew Leach article as:
"...a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right
elbow."
Parisi had an 0-4 record with the parent club Cardinals this season. The Cardinals are hoping Parisi will not need surgery to correct the injury.
