The St. Louis Cardinals announced prior to today’s game that they have recalled outfielder Tommy Pham from Memphis (AAA) and optioned outfielder Randal Grichuk to the triple-A club.

  Pham, 28, the Cardinals Opening Day starter in left field, was batting a combined .250 (31-for-124) with 4 HR’s and 19 RBI in 37 games with Memphis (AAA) and Springfield (AA).   Pham homered in each of his past two games with Memphis and drove in seven runs.  The right-handed hitting outfielder owns a .263 career batting average (41-for-156) with 5 HR’s and 18 RBI in 59 games for the Cardinals.

Pham suffered a left oblique injury on Opening Day (April 3) at Pittsburgh, taking just one at-bat, and was placed on the disabled list the next day.  He was activated from the disabled list on May 17 and optioned to Memphis.

Grichuk, 24, was batting .206 with 8 HR’s and 27 RBI in 62 games this season.
