Right fielder Stephen Piscotty was activated from the 10-day disabled list Tuesday by the St. Louis Cardinals.

Piscotty, who has been sidelined by a strained right groin, hasn’t played since July 14. He is batting just .236 with 13 doubles, six home runs and 31 RBIs in 69 games.

Piscotty was 3-for-15 on a rehab assignment at low-Class A Peoria. He had two doubles, three RBIs and a stolen base. He injured the groin making a catch in Pittsburgh.

To make room for Piscotty, the Cardinals optioned rookie Harrison Bader to Class AAA Memphis. Bader batted .286 (6-for-21) with two doubles in six games, with nine strikeouts.

Piscotty is expected to be in the lineup Tuesday night when St. Louis begins an important three-game series against the slumping Milwaukee Brewers.

Piscotty previously was on the disabled list May 5-19 with a strained right hamstring.
