  • Cards call up Perez

    it deserves its own thread

    http://www.stltoday.com/stltoday/spo...D?OpenDocument

    The Cardinals have added Memphis Redbirds closer Chris Perez to their roster as the team seeks relief for the back end of its bullpen.

    No announcement has been made regarding the status of Jason Isringhausen, the team's all-time saves leader.

    Perez, 22, is a 6-foot-4 righthander who has been highly successful against Triple-A competition this season.

    He racked up 22 strikeouts in 17.2 innings to go with eight saves and a 2.04 ERA. Opposing hitters batted .190 against him, with lefthanders batting only .130.

    Perez was a supplemental first-round draft pick (42nd overall) out of Miami (Fla.) in 2006.




    It is uncertain at this point what role Perez will serve in the Cardinals bullpen. STLtoday.com will have more on Perez, and Isringhausen, as the stories develop.

          No announcement on Izzy. But you'd think they would say something about the corresponding roster move...or, not

                          It's related to last Friday's incident in Milwaukee...

                            That must've been from hitting the TV screen twice.

                            TLR probably ordered him to do it so he'd hurt himself and they could DL him.
                            “I’ve always stated, ‘I’m a Missouri Tiger,’” Anderson said March 13 after Arkansas fired John Pelphrey, adding, “I’m excited about what’s taking place here.”

                            Asked then if he would talk to his players about the situation, he said, “They know me, and that’s where the trust comes in.
