It's all the more reason for the Memphis Redbirds and St. Louis Cardinals to finalize their Player Development Agreement. The Redbirds slugging outfielder Joey Mather gets the callup to the Big Leagues Friday.
He started for the Cardinals against the Pittsburgh Pirates and delivered the game winning hit in the 7th, going 1-4 with a good catch in rightfield as well.
The 25-year old Mathers' promotion was expected. He was batting .315 with 12-home runs and 24 RBI's in 38 games in Memphis. He currently has a 6-game hitting streak and hit a whopping 10 home runs in May.
