ATLANTA (KMOX) – The Cardinals are turning to Class A Palm Beach for a replacement outfielder, after placing Jose Martinez on the 10-day disabled list with a left groin injury.

St. Louis announced on Sunday that 21-year-old Magneuris Sierra will join the ballclub in Atlanta for their afternoon game.

The Dominican Republic native becomes the most-recent position player to debut at age 21 for the Cardinals since Albert Pujols in 2001.

Sierra was hitting .272 with a .337 on base percentage for Palm Beach, ranking 2nd in the Florida State League with four triples in 20 games played.
