Kinney in, Perez out
Josh Kinney has been called up from Memphis and is expected to be present by game time, though I didn’t see him in the clubhouse before I headed upstairs at 11:30 a.m. CT. Kinney threw two innings for Memphis last night, but needed only 21 pitches to do so, and TLR says he’s available to pitch today.
Timo Perez is out, though at this minute I’m not sure of the actual transaction — DFA or waived or what. I don’t believe he can be optioned.
That leaves the Cards with 13 pitchers, a situation that obviously won’t last for very long.
