Wisdom will miss about a week with a hamstring injury, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Derrick Goold reports. The 24-year-old third baseman has yet to reach Triple-A, so he is unlikely to be in the conversation for a spot on the 25-man roster out of camp. He has displayed some pop in back-to-back years at Double-A, but he has not hit better than .237 in 239 games at that level, so he may top out as a Quadruple-A type.
The Cardinals announced Monday they optioned Angel Castro, Mike O'Neill and Rafael Ortega to Triple-A Memphis. The team also reassigned Kurt Heyer, Boone Whiting, Patrick Wisdom, Carson Kelly, Casey Rasmus and Cody Stanley to minor-league camp.
