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.

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.

Cardinals optioned RHP Jorge Rondon to Triple-A Memphis.

An expected move. Rondon, a 24-year-old reliever, had a 3.49 ERA and 50 strikeouts over 49 innings last season between Double- and Triple-A.

Cardinals purchased the contract of RHP Jorge Rondon from Triple-A Memphis.

The move was made in order to keep Rondon, 24, from becoming a minor league free agent. 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.
