The St. Louis Cardinals announced today that they have placed outfielder Dexter Fowler on the 10-day disabled list with a left wrist strain and have purchased the contract of rookie outfielder Harrison Bader from Memphis (AAA).
The Cardinals' 25-man roster continues to get injections of young blood, as 23-year-old Harrison Bader was promoted to Major League Baseball duty Tuesday.
Bader, a fast-rising 2015 draft pick (3rd round), will become the sixth player to make his Major League debut for the Cardinals this season.

Bader fills an open spot on the Cardinals' 40-man roster. He was batting.297 with 19 home runs and 48 RBI in 97 games with the triple-A Redbirds and ranks 10th in the Pacific Coast League in home runs.
Fowler left the game in a double switch Monday night. Fowler is hitting.241/.333/.452 with 14 home runs and four steals this season.
The Cardinals have also outright released Memphis outfielder Chad Huffman.
