ST. LOUIS, Mo. – The St. Louis Cardinals announced prior to Thursday’s series finale in Cleveland that they have placed outfielder Jon Jay (left wrist tendinitis) on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 10, and recalled first baseman/outfielder Xavier Scruggs from Memphis (AAA).

The team also announced that they have transferred left-handed pitcher Jaime Garcia’s 30-day injury rehabilitation assignment from Memphis to Springfield (AA).  Garcia is scheduled to start for the Double-A Cardinals tomorrow.

Scruggs, 27, was batting .229 (22-for-96) with a team-leading six home runs, 18 RBI and a .510 slugging pct. in 30 games for Memphis.   The right-handed hitting Scruggs also had seven doubles and a .385 on-base pct.
