|Astros claim Ryan Jackson, remove three from 40-man roster |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(11/20/13) The Astros claimed infielder Ryan Jackson off waivers from the Cardinals Wednesday while also releasing pitcher John Ely and designating outfielder J.D. Martinez for assignment. Infielder Jake Elmore was also claimed off waivers by the White Sox.
Jackson went 0 for 7 in seven appearances with the Cardinals last season while also hitting .278/.352/.346 with three home runs, 34 RBI and nine stolen bases in 442 at-bats with Triple-A Memphis. Ely pitched just four Triple-A innings before undergoing Tommy John surgery. Martinez hit .250/.272/.378 with seven home runs and 36 RBI in 296 at-bats with the Astros last season.

(9/4/13) Cardinals shortstop Ryan Jackson is in the mix for playing time, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
The 25-year-old Jackson hit .278, with a .352 on-base percentage at Triple-A Memphis. He's struggled over the second half, hitting just .221. Jackson will spell Pete Kozma and Daniel Descalso occasionally, and could work his way to a bigger role if he plays well.

(5/14/13) Cardinals prospect Ryan Jackson added three more hits on Tuesday to raise his average to .372 through 31 games for Triple-A Memphis. He also has 11 RBI and a .487 slugging percentage.
The 25-year-old would be one of the first infielders called up to the majors if a spot opened up, MLB.com reports.
"He really took a great attitude with him when he was sent down," manager Mike Matheny said of Jackson, who has played second, third and short for Memphis this year. "He realizes he's right there. Where Pete Kozma was a year ago, he's even ahead of that in the fact that he's taking real advantage of the opportunity he has there. He's done a real good job."

|David Freese starting on disabled list |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(3/26/13) The Cardinals are placing third baseman David Freese on the disabled list to begin the season, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Tuesday. Freese has a back injury.
St. Louis will return Ryan Jackson to the major-league roster to take Freese's place. The third baseman, expected to begin the year as the starter, underwent an MRI Monday which gave the Cardinals encouraging results.
Unfortunately, after Freese was given an anti-inflammatory injection, it appears the team has decided to shelve him. He'll have his DL stay retroactive to March 23 and should be able to return shortly into the regular season, if healthy.
Jackson will be on the roster until Freese is healthy enough to return. The 25-year-old is hitting .136 this spring over 22 at-bats. He played in 13 games for the Red Birds last year and hit .118 over 17 at-bats without an RBI.
