Report: Cardinals call up 1B Xavier Scruggs, Jon Jay to DL
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/14/15) The Cardinals are calling first baseman Xavier Scruggs up to the major-league roster, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Scruggs was hitting .229 with six home runs, 18 RBI and a .510 slugging percentage with Triple-A Memphis.
The corresponding roster move was to place Jon Jay on the 15-day disabled list. Jay has been recovering from thumb and elbow injuries.
"It feels a little restricted," Jay said of the wrist, per the Post-Dispatch. "That’s something I expected coming into the year. I knew I would have to deal with it. Not at the same level I was dealing with it last year. I’m looking for it to get better and getting out there as soon as I can. Take a step back now."

Cardinals OF Xavier Scruggs working on versatility
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(3/19/15) Cardinals outfielder Xavier Scruggs is working on the transition from first base to the outfield, per MLB.com.
Knowing that the team values versatility, he is working to adjust to the new position.
"It was huge for me getting into game speed, seeing the balls off the bat, reacting to balls down the line and over my head, and learning what my weaknesses were with that," Scruggs said. "The biggest thing is to learn as much as possible from these guys here."
Cardinals manager Mike Matheny believes that Scruggs has what it takes to get the job done.
Said Matheny, "Xavier has shown that he is a guy we can put out there."
