Cardinals designated RHP Miguel Socolovich for assignment.

The right-hander has struggled mightily out of the Cardinals' bullpen this season, registering an 8.68 ERA, 1.66 WHIP and 14/4 K/BB ratio over 18 2/3 innings. Given how well he pitched the previous two seasons, he could attract interest on waivers.

Miguel Socolovich earned a three-inning save Monday in the Cardinals' defeat of the Marlins.

Socolovich gave up a solo homer to Giancarlo Stanton in the bottom of the ninth, but he was able to finish off the 9-4 victory and secure a night off for the rest of the St. Louis bullpen. It was the 30-year-old right-hander's first career save.

Cardinals optioned RHP Miguel Socolovich to Triple-A Memphis.

The 29-year-old right-hander did everything in his power this spring to earn a spot in a crowded bullpen, registering a 2.57 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 6/1 K/BB ratio across seven frames. He should get an opportunity with the Cardinals at some point during the upcoming season.

Cardinals recalled RHP Miguel Socolovich from Triple-A Memphis.

Socolovich has registered an impressive 1.54 ERA in 21 relief appearances this season at the major league level, but it's been tough for him to find regular work in the Cardinals' talented bullpen. The right-hander probably won't see much action down the stretch.

Socolovich had registered a 1.17 ERA, 0.78 WHIP, and 8/1 K/BB ratio through 7 2/3 innings out of the St. Louis bullpen, so this is a surprising move. The 28-year-old right-hander probably won't be in the minors long.
