Cardinals Call Up Outfielder

The St. Louis Cardinals have called up Lars Nootbaar to their major league roster.

With Tyler O'Neill once again on the injured list, it makes sense that the Cardinals have recalled Nootbaar. Nootbaar already has appeared in 23 major league games this season with the Cardinals, too. During them, he has one home run, six RBIs, and a .137 batting average. During this call-up, he will be aiming to have more success. 

Overall, this is a good chance for Nootbaar to show the Cardinals that he is meant to play at the major league level. We will have to wait and see how the 24-year-old performs from here.
