• James Ramsey, the No. 23 overall selection in the 2012 First-Year Player Draft, has landed on the seven-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring. Cardinals farm director John Vuch said that the organization expects Ramsey to be ready to return after the minimum week-long stay. Before the injury setback, Ramsey was hitting .357 with seven extra-base hits and six RBIs for Class A Advanced Palm Beach (Fla.).
• Triple-A catcher J.R. Towles has also been placed on the DL after straining his lower back while fielding a bunt on Sunday. Taking Towles' place on the Memphis roster is catcher Travis Tartamella, who opened the season with Double-A Springfield.
