Sprained Ankle puts Cards’ HR Leader on Shelf
The St. Louis Cardinals placed 1B/OF Brandon Moss on the 15-day disabled list shortly before Tuesday night’s game vs. the Pittsburgh Pirates. Randal Grichuk is recalled from Memphis to replace Moss on the 25-man roster.
Moss is currently leading the Cardinals with 17 home runs so far this season. He had just told KTRS Sports over the weekend that he was as healthy as he’s been in a couple seasons.
Grichuk was optioned to Triple-A on June 18th, while hitting just .206. Since his demotion, Grichuk has 5 home runs with 15 RBI in 15 games for Memphis.
