The St. Louis Cardinals announced prior to tonight’s game that they have purchased the contract of rookie right-handed pitcher Alex Reyes from Memphis (AAA) and placed right-handed pitcher Michael Wacha (right shoulder inflammation) on the 15-day disabled list. To make room for Reyes on the team’s 40-man Major League roster, the team transferred catcher Brayan Pena (left knee inflammation) from the 15-day D.L. to the 60-day D.L.

Rob Rains will have a story soon.
