ATLANTA (AP) -The St. Louis Cardinals activated Jim Edmonds from the disabled list Thursday after the center fielder missed 26 games with a pinched nerve in his lower back.
Edmonds was hitting .238 with seven homers and 24 RBIs with the chronic injury. St. Louis made room for the eight-time Gold Glove winner and four-time All-Star on the 25-man roster by optioning reliever Andy Cavazos to Triple-A Memphis.
The Cardinals held third baseman Scott Rolen out of the lineup for the second straight day following his return to St. Louis for a checkup Wednesday on his left shoulder.
Rolen, who's hitting .262 with four homers and 39 RBIs, had a cortisone shot to relieve inflammation and tightness. Manager Tony La Russa said he would put Rolen, a seven-time Gold Glove recipient and five-time All-Star, back in the lineup when his shoulder felt loose.
Aaron Miles started in place of Rolen, who rejoined the Cardinals before their game against the Atlanta Braves.
