Cardinals recall Rzepczynski, option Martinez

Thursday - 7/25/2013, 5:40pm  ET

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals recalled Marc Rzepczynski from Triple-A Memphis on Thursday, giving them three left-handed relievers.

Rookie right-hander Carlos Martinez was optioned to Memphis.

The 27-year-old Rzepczynski was demoted to the minors April 29 and was 1-2 with a 3.07 ERA at Memphis while limiting left-handed hitters to a .185 batting average. Rzepczynski appeared in 70 games with St. Louis last season.

The 21-year-old Martinez was the organization's minor league pitcher of the month in June and is among their top prospects for a future rotation spot. He has a 5.56 ERA in 10 games covering 11 1-3 innings with St. Louis.
