Cardinals Recall Sanchez, Release Romero
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals have recalled right-handed reliever Eduardo Sanchez from Triple-A Memphis and released struggling lefty J.C. Romero.

The 23-year-old Sanchez was 0-2 with a 6.08 ERA in 14 appearances in the minors but did not allow a run in his last five outings. He didn't give up any runs in seven spring training games, with 14 strikeouts in eight innings.

The 34-year-old Romero allowed nine runs in 3 1-3 innings in his last three appearances and was 0-0 with a 10.13 ERA in eight innings over 11 games overall. The Cardinals were the sixth team in 12 seasons for Romero.

Monday's move leaves the Cardinals with one lefty, Marc Rzepczynski.
