The St. Louis Cardinals announced prior to this evening's game in Phoenix that they have purchased the contract of rookie infielder Alex Mejia from Memphis (AAA) and optioned shortstop Aledmys Diaz to the triple-A club. The team also transferred right-handed pitcher Alex Reyes (right elbow surgery) from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list to make room for Mejia on the team's 40-man Major League roster.

The Cardinals have tried shock therapy at several different levels in this disappointing season.

The sensational story of Aledmys Diaz has hit a bit of a snag.

The St. Louis Cardinals have optioned shortstop Aledmys Diaz to Memphis (AAA) and purchased the contract of infielder Alex Mejia, who will be making his Major League debut when he plays for the team.

A day after describing himself as lost at the plate, Aledmys Diaz arrived at Chase Field on Wednesday to learn that not only was he out of the lineup again, but that he was headed elsewhere. Just as they did with Randal Grichuk last month, the Cardinals optioned Diaz to the Minors in an effort to give the second-year shortstop a change of scenery as he works through a variety of issues with his swing and glove.
