St. Louis Cardinals promote Kevin Siegrist, demote Maikel Cleto

Posted by Scott Wuerz on June 6, 2013 

The merry go round keeps on turning.

The Cardinals have shipped out their second middle reliever in as many days, calling on Class AAA Memphis hurler Kevin Siegrist to be the club's ninth rookie pitcher to play this season.

Siegrist had a 1.17 ERA with the Redbirds in 7 2/3 innings since being promoted from Class AA Springfield where he was 1-1 with a 2.25 ERA in 20 innings of work. Overall this season, Siegrist has struck out 44 batters and walked 10 while surrendering 11 hits in 27 2/3 innings. 

Maikel Cleto has been demoted to Class AAA for the obvious reasons.
