Cardinals' Jhonny Peralta: Sent off 40-man roster
Peralta was designated for assignment Friday, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.
The former All-Star's days on the active roster seemed to be numbered for quite a while now, and with Kolten Wong coming off the disabled list, Peralta finally got the hook. The veteran infielder's season has been a disaster, as his batting average sits just above the Mendoza Line and he hasn't recorded an extra-base hit or an RBI this season. His track record of big-league success may be enough to entice a team to pluck him off waivers, although his steady decline over the past couple of seasons doesn't instill much confidence.
