The St. Louis Cardinals transferred Junior Fernández to the 60-day IL on Sunday.

The right-hander was originally placed on the 10-day IL due to a right shoulder strain on Sept. 3, retroactive to Sept. 2.

Fernández has appeared in 18 games for the Cardinals this season and has a 5.66 ERA in 20.2 innings of work.

RHP Johan Quezada was activated from the injured list, where he was placed back in August due to illness, on Sunday and will rejoin the Springfield Double-A roster.
