Wisdom was no longer needed as corner infield depth in St. Louis following the acquisition of Paul Goldschmidt. The 27-year-old spent the majority of the 2018 season with Triple-A Memphis, hitting .288/.363/.480 with 15 homers and 11 stolen bases across 107 games. He also made his major-league debut, slashing .260/.362/.520 with four homers and a pair of steals across 32 games for the big club. Wisdom currently projects as infield depth for Texas, though he could also compete for a starting job if Jurickson Profar is traded before Opening Day.
Wisdom went 2-for-4 with a double and a run in a loss to the Cubs on Sunday.
The rookie logged his first start since Sept. 15 in the finale and made good use of the opportunity. Wisdom was solid in his first taste of major-league action in 2018, but his path to the big leagues with the Cardinals organization remains murky due to the team being seemingly set at both corner infield spots with Matt Carpenter and Jedd Gyorko.
Wisdom was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday.
Wisdom is up to replace the injured Kolten Wong (hamstring), though he's exclusively a corner infielder, so Wisdom isn't a direct replacement for Wong at second base. The 27-year-old went 4-for-12 in his first taste of big-league action earlier in the month and has hit a solid .288/.363/.480 with 15 homers and 11 steals for Memphis this season.
Wisdom went 1-for-1 with a pinch-hit solo home run Sunday against the Brewers.
Wisdom took Jeremy Jeffress deep in the eighth inning to record his first career home run. The 26-year-old made his major league debut on August 12 and has appeared nearly exclusively as a pinch-hitter or defensive replacement, earning only 9 at-bats in eight appearances. He has racked up four hits in that limited sample, but has minimal value due to lack of playing time.
