Scott Spiezio put on the restricted list The Cardinals infielder Scott Spiezio, also famous for his red goatee, has been put on the MLB restricted list due to a substance abuse problem. According to the latest reports, Scott Spiezio voluntarily came out to the club's medical staff about a substance he has been taken without their knowledge, as he was concerned about the possible problems which may occur if tested. 

 Dr. George Paletta, the St. Louis Cardinals medical director, praised Spiezio: "It speaks highly of Scott to come forward, admitting recognition of a potential problem. This allows the organization to provide him access to the appropriate resources for further evaluation and treatment."

 There is no information about which substance Scott Spiezio has been taking. According to ABC, Spiezio will voluntary enter a treatment program for a problem that the team did not specify.

 Meanwhile Rick Ankiel returned to the Cardinals as an outfielder and was in the starting lineup against San Diego. The Cardinals were listed with odds +137, the Padres at -152 at the online bookmaker Bodog Sports.
