ST. LOUIS, MO - The St. Louis Cardinals purchased INF Ryan Jackson today from the Memphis Redbirds (AAA). Jackson will report to Philadelphia and be available Friday. He will be making his Major League debut and wearing uniform 8.
The 24 year-old Jackson has appeared in 113 games for the club's Triple-A team, paying 98 games at shortstop and 13 at second base. He holds a .269 average with 23 doubles, 10 home runs and 45 RBI for Memphis. Jackson becomes the eighth player to make his Major League debut for the Cardinals, joining Matt Adams, Barrett Browning, Chuckie Fick, Sam Freeman, Joe Kelly, Erik Komatsu and Trevor Rosenthal.
Jackson was drafted in the 5th round of the June 2009 draft by the Cardinals out of the University of Miami-Florida, where he was a teammate of current Cardinal outfielder Jon Jay. He was a member of the 2008 Team USA Baseball National team. In 2011 he was named the Best Defensive Infielder in the Cardinals organization by Baseball America.

It is common and understandable to want to put a bad loss behind one as quickly as possible. For that reason, it is probably good that the St. Louis Cardinals have a Thursday afternoon game following their 15-0 drubbing at the hands of San Francisco Wednesday night at Busch Stadium.
Yet, as the 2012 Cardinals fight to try to gain a spot in the post-season, I wondered if there could...
Second baseman Tyler Greene was trade by St. Louis to Houston for a player to be named later or cash considerations after the Astros claimed him on waivers. Green is hitting .218 with nine stolen bases and four home runs, but had lost playing time through the course of the season. He had an error and two strikeouts in the Cardinals' 15-0 loss to San Francisco on Wednesday and...

The Tyler Greene era has ended with a thud. A night removed from a spot start that lit the fuse on a 15-0 beatdown from the Giants, the Cardinals have traded Greene to Houston for a player to be named later and a bag of money. Makes sense, since Houston GM Jeff Luhnow was in charge of the Cardinals minor league system when Greene was drafted.Some of his best hits on The CD:+ The...
Right fielder Carlos Beltran is among the most efficient base stealers in major league history. He was at 87 percent on 303 steals in 348 attempts before Friday night, when he made a rare but very costly baserunning mistake to end the game as the St. Louis Cardinals lost at Philadelphia 3-1. In the second inning, Beltran had homered off Philadelphia right-hander Roy Halladay for...

While there doesn't figure to be nearly as much intrigue surrounding this weekend's three-game set, a matchup between Halladay and Kyle Lohse could make for a competitive series opener Friday night.
