MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Outfielder Tommy Pham is back in Memphis.

St. Louis Cardinals activated Pham off the disabled list Tuesday, but chose to send him to the Redbirds as opposed to keeping him on the big league club.

Pham appeared in the Cardinals’ first game of the season, taking just one at bat before injuring his left oblique and being placed on the DL.

The 28-year-old played well in St. Louis in 2015, making their postseason roster, but is trapped behind Jeremy Hazelbaker (.281, 7 HR) for the fourth outfield spot on the big league club.

Pham has played in six games for Memphis this season and struggled, but played four games for AA Springfield, where he raked for a 1.042 OPS.
