Curtis collected a double, a walk, and two RBI in Triple-A Louisville's 6-1 win over Columbus on Wednesday. He's now batting .286 over seven at-bats on the young season. Curtis only had six at-bats in spring training this year but he managed to produce two hits and a RBI. The 28-year-old has spent the last four seasons at the Triple-A level with one brief appearance in the majors in 2013. His ability to play both infield and outfield as well as his career .377 OBP in the minors are both factors that boost Curtis' chances of reaching the majors in 2016.
The Cardinals outrighted starting pitcher John Gast and outfielder Jermaine Curtis to Triple-A Memphis Wednesday. Both spent time in the majors in 2013. Gast made three starts before tearing his left lat in July. Curtis went hitless in three at-bats.
The Cardinals added top outfield prospect Oscar Taveras, infielder Jermaine Curtis and pitcher John Gast to the team's 40-man roster Wednesday. Taveras, who was ranked the No. 3 prospect in baseball by MLB.com and Baseball America before the season, hit .306/.341/.462 with five home runs and 32 RBI in 173 at-bats with Triple-A Memphis. He is recovering from August ankle surgery and is expected to be ready by spring training. Curtis hit .257/.355/.349 with five home runs, 49 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 370 at-bats with Triple-A Memphis. Gast went 2-0 with a 5.11 ERA in three starts with the Cardinals and 3-1 with a 1.16 ERA in seven starts with Triple-A Memphis.
The Cardinals optioned outfielder Jermaine Curtis to Triple-A Memphis Thursday. Curtis made just two pinch-hit appearances in his latest recall for St. Louis, going 0 for 1 with a hit by pitch.
The Cardinals have promoted infielder Jermaine Curtis to the majors Tuesday. Curtis will take the spot of reliever Michael Blazek. He's appeared in three games in the majors. He's hitless in two at-bats, but did walk in his other plate appearance.
