The team has purchased infielder Jermaine Curtis from Memphis (AAA) to take Adam’s spot on the 25-man active roster.

The right-handed hitting Curtis was drafted by the Cardinals in 2008 (5th round) out of UCLA. He led the Texas League (AA) in on-base pct. (.416) last season and was 2nd in batting (.313) while earning All-Star honors at Springfield.

Adams was batting .542 with 3 home runs and a 1.042 slugging pct. in eight games to begin the season with St. Louis.
