ST. LOUIS -- Pack your bags, Joey Butler. You've got a long journey ahead.
The Cardinals announced Friday afternoon that Butler's contract has been purchased by the Orix Buffaloes of the Nippon Professional Baseball League in Japan. St. Louis had requested outright release waivers for the Triple-A outfielder.
Butler appeared in five games with the Cardinals following his purchase...
ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Cardinals have added bench experience, recalling outfielder Shane Robinson from Triple-A Memphis.
Rookie outfielder Joey Butler was optioned to Memphis in moves announced before Wednesday night's game against Arizona.
Robinson batted .371 in 18 games in the minors and hit .524 (11 for 21) against left-handed pitchers. He had multihit games in six of his...

Note: This is CardinalFarm’s selection. The St. Louis Cardinals have not officially announced their selection.
The first month of the 2014 minor league season is complete and there were several strong performances for Player of the Month. If, at the the beginning of April, I told you that a Memphis outfielder would win the award you would have probably guessed Oscar Taveras,...
When the Cardinals left Memphis on Friday night, shortstop Pete Kozma was still on the roster.
But that doesn't mean he has made the team. The Cardinals still have a couple of days to finalize the 25-man roster in advance of Monday afternoon's season opener at Cincinatti. With second baseman Mark Ellis still dealing with a tender knee, there's a chance he could start the season...
