Cardinal Pitching Moves

The Cleveland Indians acquired reliever Marc Rzepczynski from the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday in exchange for minor league infielder Juan Herrera. Rzepczynski was a key component out of the bullpen during the Cardinals' run to a World Series title in 2011, then pitched in 70 games for the club last season. The lefty specialist has struggled mightily this year, however, allowing nine runs and 16 hits over 10 1/3 innings and spending the majority of the campaign with Triple-A Memphis. St. Louis recalled Rzepczynski from the minors last week, but optioned him back to Memphis prior to Tuesday's doubleheader in Pittsburgh after being reached for a pair of runs over 1 1/3 innings in Monday's loss to the Pirates.

The St. Louis Cardinals recalled three pitchers from Triple-A Memphis prior to Tuesday's doubleheader in Pittsburgh. The club called up Michael Blazek, Keith Butler and Tyler Lyons, who is slated to start the second game. St. Louis also optioned pitchers Marc Rzepczynski and Fernando Salas to Memphis, then traded Rzepczynski to the Cleveland Indians later in the day in exchange for minor league infielder Juan Herrera.

Recently released statistics show that immigration to the United States has accounted for 82% of the population growth over the past 8 years.

This may be an alarming fact to a number of people, especially conservatives who do not trust President Obama on this issue. The fact is, however, that this trend has been going on for decades.
