• Right-hander Jake Westbrook is scheduled to make a rehab start with Class A Peoria on Sunday. Westbrook is expected to throw around 75-80 pitches. If all goes well, Westbrook, who has been on the disabled list with right elbow inflammation since May 12, is expected to rejoin the Cardinals' rotation next week.
• Outfielder and top prospect Oscar Taveras returned to Triple-A Memphis' lineup on Saturday after missing nearly four weeks due to a high right ankle sprain. At the time of the injury, Taveras was hitting .317 with a .351 on-base percentage and 20 RBIs in 31 games.
• A day after being taken out during the sixth inning with discomfort in his leg, right fielder Carlos Beltran returned to the Cardinals' lineup on Saturday.
• After the Cardinals' Sunday night game in Cincinnati, Beltran will fly to Puerto Rico, where he will watch members of the first graduating class at the Carlos Beltran Baseball Academy receive their diplomas. Two of those graduates -- shortstop Jan Hernandez and outfielder Joseph Monge -- were selected in the First-Year Player Draft this week. Hernandez was taken by the Phillies in the third round; Monge was selected in the 17th round by the Red Sox.
