Cardinals optioned RHP Jorge Rondon to Triple-A Memphis.

Rondon was in a battle for a bullpen job this spring, but he lost out to Keith Butler for the final spot. The 25-year-old will likely find himself in St. Louis at some point this summer.
Fri, Mar 28, 2014 09:24:00 PM

Jorge Rondon pitched another scoreless frame Thursday and has yet to allow a run in 7 1/3 innings this spring.

He's given up eight hits, walked two and struck out six. The 25-year-old Rondon was added to the Cardinals' 40-man roster in Oct. 2012, but he's yet to appear in the majors. He's making a nice case for a spot in this year's pen, though. There should be room for two of them, Pat Neshek and Sam Freeman, at least until Jason Motte returns.

A hard-thrower, Rondon posted a 3.49 ERA while striking out 50 over 49 innings between Double- and Triple-A this season. He's often dealt with control issues, as evidenced by his career minor league BB/9 rate of 4.3.
