Yeah, I was thinking he would get some opps also. Maybe not immediately but I really think they want him (or Motte) longer term as their closer, with Franklin in the 8th. Gotta think Perez probably has the advantage over Motte to get opps right now though right?
Perez recalled by Cards - The Associated Press is reporting that Chris Perez has been recalled from Triple-A Memphis to join the Cardinals.
It's possible Perez could work his way into the closer mix, but it's also possible be could be sent back down tomorrow when P.J. Walters is called up to make the start.

It's not that it happened while pitching but it's just that it's yet another example of him being extremely injury prone. And as a starter he's going to have to bat which is where he got injured. And what are you going to do 'have him sacrifice every time up even if the bases are empty or loaded'?
Yoda nor myself really get any credit for mentioning it as a possibility since the Cards said that he would go back to the bullpen if he couldn't hold up as a starter.
