Prior to tonight’s series finale in Cincinnati, the St. Louis Cardinals announced that they placed outfielder Dexter Fowler on the Injured List, optioned right-handed pitcher Ryan Meisinger to the Alternate Training Site, recalled left-handed pitcher Rob Kaminsky from the Alternate Training Site, and activated infielder Rangel Ravelo from the Injured List.
Fowler, 34, was hitting .279/.349/.485 (19-68) with four home runs and 14 RBI this season. The switch-hitting outfielder reached base safely in 19 of his 23 games while co-leading the Cardinals in home runs and ranking 2nd in RBI.
Kaminsky, who is celebrating his 26th birthday today, has made two scoreless outings this season for St. Louis.
Ravelo, 28, rejoins St. Louis after missing the previous 22 games while on the Injured List. The right-handed hitter has appeared in one game this season on July 29 at Minnesota.
Meisinger, 26, pitched a scoreless inning in last night’s 16-2 win in Cincinnati.
