Cardinals call up Scruggs and Garcia




All I can say it is about time the Cardinals finally recalled Xavier Scruggs and Greg Garcia. With the recent power slump and lack of runs I am glad to see the Cardinals brought up some help to ignite this team. Catcher Ed Easley and RHP Pitcher Mitch Harris has been sent down to Memphis.

Garcia batted .313 with a .405 on-base percentage at Memphis, and hit .362 with runners in scoring position. He played primarily at shortstop but also started 17 games at second base. Garcia is making his 2015 debut with the Cardinals; he played 14 games for St. Louis last season.

Scruggs, a first baseman who was called up by the Cardinals in mid-May but had only one pinch-hit appearance, led Memphis with 11 homers and 35 RBIs. After a slow start, Scruggs boosted his average to .251 over 60 games.
