To make room for Piscotty’s return to the roster, the Cardinals have optioned Harrison Bader back to Memphis (AAA).

“Obviously, it was a short look but got to see him play a lot in Spring Training and clearly, he’s having a very successful season at Triple-A, so I would say all of us feel he’s made a very positive impression on all of us,” said President of Baseball Operations John Mozeliak.

Bader started six games for St. Louis and hit .286 (6-21) with two doubles, two walks and scored the game-winning run on a game-ending sacrifice fly on his July 25th MLB debut.
