Cardinals activate Wacha, call up Scruggs

Posted: Updated:

MILWAUKEE (AP) - The St. Louis Cardinals activated Michael Wacha from the disabled list to start Thursday against the Milwaukee Brewers.

The move was expected for the 23-year-old Wacha, who was on the disabled list since June 18 with a right shoulder stress reaction. He is 5-5 with a 2.79 ERA in 15 starts.

St. Louis also called up first baseman Xavier Scruggs from Triple-A Memphis. Scruggs, who was batting seventh Thursday, was hitting .286 with 21 home runs and 87 RBIs in the minors.

The Cardinals moved outfielder Shane Robinson from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list.

St. Louis has won five straight to take a three-game lead in the NL Central over Milwaukee.
