Cardinals optioned INF Greg Garcia to Triple-A Memphis.

The Cards won Tuesday's game when Garcia was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the 12th inning, but the young infielder finds himself back in the minors the next day. It's no surprise given his lack of playing time (10 at-bats in over three weeks). He'll go back to playing second base and shortstop at Memphis.

Cardinals recalled INF Greg Garcia from Triple-A Memphis.

The 24-year-old replaces Kolten Wong on the roster and will provide depth in the middle infield. He was off to a strong start at Triple-A, hitting .277/.362/.554 with five homers and 14 RBI in his first 20 games.

Cardinals optioned INF Greg Garcia to Triple-A Memphis.

The 24-year-old had a solid spring, slashing .313/.450/.313 with three RBI in 16 at-bats, but it wasn't enough to secure a spot on the Cardinals bench. It's likely that he'll get an opportunity with the Cards at some point during the 2014 season.

Greg Garcia left Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins with a left hamstring cramp.

Nothing to see here, just a little discomfort. Garcia should be ready to go by the team's next game. Garcia, 24, will likely start the season at Triple-A Memphis.
Mar 1 - 4:11 PM

Cardinals purchased the contract of INF Greg Garcia from Triple-A Louisville.

The Cardinals opted to protect Garcia from the Rule 5 Draft after he hit .271/.377/.384 with three home runs and 35 RBI over 116 games this year in Triple-A. The 24-year-old could have a future as a utility infielder.
