ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – He’ll be wearing the “birds on the bat” this 4th of July, instead of U.S. Navy colors.
The St. Louis Cardinals announced Saturday that pitcher Mitch Harris has been recalled from AAA Memphis, and infielder Greg Garcia was sent down.
The 29-year-old Navy lieutenant appeared in 16 games for the Cards earlier this season, becoming the first member of the U.S. Naval Academy to appear in the big leagues since Nemo Gaines of Washington in 1921.
Harris has a 1-1 record with a 3.63 ERA.
