St. Louis Cardinals press release

The St. Louis Cardinals announced today that they have recalled rookie outfielder Tyler O’Neill and left-handed reliever Tyler Webb from Memphis (AAA).   The team also announced that right-handed pitcher Carlos Martinez (right shoulder strain) has been placed on the 10-day disabled list.

O’Neill, who is batting .311 with 26 home runs (1st in Pacific Coast League) and 61 RBI at Memphis, appeared in 19 games with the Cardinals earlier this season, hitting three home runs.

Webb made his Cardinals debut on Sunday night with 2.0 scoreless innings of relief against Chicago.  He’s appeared in 14 career games between the New York Yankees, Milwaukee, San Diego and St.  Louis.

O’Neill wears uniform no. 41 and Webb wears no. 30.

Derek  Shore’s commentary

The subtraction was expected, but the additions were unknown until Tuesday due to the Tommy Pham trade.

This is Martinez’s third stint this season after leaving his start early last night against Colorado. He is expected to miss up to three to four starts as of now, per reports out of St. Louis.

Meanwhile, Webb got his first taste of the I55-Shuttle. After tossing two scoreless innings in relief against Chicago in his MLB debut, the lefty was promptly optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Monday before returning 24 hours later.
