by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Cardinals optioned catcher Tony Cruz to Double-A Springfield Friday, in order to clear a roster spot for the return of Yadier Molina.

Cruz is expected back with the team when rosters expand Sept. 1. He is struggling through his worst offensive season, hitting just .195/.267/.236 in 123 at-bats.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Cardinals recalled catcher Audry Perez from Triple-A Memphis Thursday, following Yadier Molina's placement on the disabled list with a thumb injury.
