StlToday.com wrote:The Cardinals added Memphis Redbirds closer Chris Perez to their roster today as the team seeks relief for the back end of its bullpen.
Jason Isringhausen, who Thursday suffered his sixth blown save and fifth loss of the season, was placed on the disabled list because of a hand injury.
Isringhausen reportedly suffered a laceration on his right hand when he reacted angrily after last Friday's game, when he blew a 2-0 lead with two out in the bottom of the ninth at Milwaukee. He twice delivered open-handed blows to a television set in the clubhouse after the 3-2 loss.
Perez has thrown 17.2 innings in AAA this year with 22 Ks and 9 BBs.
