Cardinals pitcher who overcame brain injury gets start at Reds

By baseball standards, the road that Daniel Poncedeleon traveled to the major leagues this season -- from Triple-A Memphis to St. Louis -- is relatively short.

By any other measure, the route that Poncedeleon covered to make his first career start for the Cardinals on Monday night against the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park was incalculably long and perilously uncertain. There was no road map, no easily navigable thruway to get there.

Only 14 months after sustaining a life-threatening brain injury while being struck by a line drive in a Triple-A game, the right-hander will take the mound for the Cardinals in the first game of the three-game series.
