 ST. LOUIS (AP) -The St. Louis Cardinals added pitching help in the midst of a six-day stretch in which they will play seven games, recalling left-hander Randy Keisler from Triple-A Memphis on Friday.
It's Keisler's second stint with the team. In April, he compiled a 5.65 ERA with no record in three. He's 8-7 with a 4.43 ERA in 18 appearances, all but one of them starts, at Memphis, but will be used as a second left-hander in the team's bullpen.
The Cardinals began a four-game, three-day series with NL Central-leading Milwaukee on Friday night, with a day-night doubleheader scheduled for Saturday.
``We're playing four games in less than 48 hours,'' La Russa said. ``He'll be available wherever we need him.''
Rookie infielder Brendan Ryan was optioned to Memphis. Ryan, who is batting .339 with two home runs and five RBIs in 62 at-bats, could be the team's shortstop next year if David Eckstein leaves as a free agent.
Ryan has started at three positions, shortstop, second base and third base.
``This is a bonus year for him,'' La Russa said. ``He's gotten playing time before it was expected and he's played well.
``He knows that he's made a good impression and every time you come back it's another expression of our confidence in him, and his opportunity to get some experience.''
