Cardinals Claim Outfielder

(St. Louis, MO) -- The Cardinals have a new outfielder on their 40-man roster. The Cards claimed 22-year-old Rafael Ortega Monday after he was placed on waivers by the Rangers last week. The left-handed hitter played for the Rockies' Double-A club in 2013. He batted .228 with 10 RBI and nine stolen bases in 42 games.
