Garcia didn't have a home run in 61 games at Triple-A this season, but he was batting .313 with a .405 on-base percentage. He was recently called up to serve as a backup infielder.

Garcia appeared in 14 games with the Cardinals last season and batted .272/.358/.382 with eight home runs and 40 RBI over 106 games in Triple-A. The 25-year-old is capable of playing multiple infield positions and could surface as a bench player again in 2015.

Cardinals recalled INF Greg Garcia from Triple-A Memphis.

Garcia is taking over the roster spot left vacant by the injured Mark Ellis. Garcia has an underwhelming .743 OPS in 103 games this season at Triple-A, but the 25-year-old is capable of playing all around the infield.

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.

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.
