ST. LOUIS (AP) — Infielder Nick Punto has been activated from the 15-day disabled list by the St. Louis Cardinals.
The 33-year-old Punto is rejoining the roster Tuesday after missing 36 games because of a strained left oblique. He was out earlier this season with a sports hernia and a right forearm injury.
He was batting .271 with 13 RBIs in 44 games, with 21 starts at second base, three at third base and three at shortstop.
Punto was 3 for 15 in a five-game injury rehabilitation assignment with Triple-A Memphis.
