    Default Cards promote Sierra

    Cardinals recalled OF Magneuris Sierra from High-A Palm Beach.



    It's quite the jump for the 21-year-old Sierra, who is starting in center field and batting seventh for the Cardinals on Sunday in Atlanta. The Cards' hand was forced a bit here, as Stephen Piscotty (hamstring), Dexter Fowler (shoulder) and Jose Martinez (groin) are hurt and Sierra is the only outfielder on the 40-man roster that wasn't already on the active roster. Sierra was batting .272/.337/.407 with three steals at Palm Beach and surely isn't MLB-ready offensively, but he's got an excellent glove in center field. With Fowler and Piscotty not expected to miss much time, Sierra's stay figures to be short.

    He just singled off RA Dickey for his first major league hit!

    It's fun to get to see him play but he's a bit out of his depth at this point in his carrer

    Hopefully Pham continues knocking that crap out of the ball.

    Sierra was demoted to Double-A Springfield. Here's hoping we see him again this season.
