SundayXtra - - BASEBALL -

WASH­ING­TON — Third base­man Matt Car­pen­ter has been ac­ti­vated from the pa­ter­nity list by the St. Louis Car­di­nals.

Car­pen­ter missed two games af­ter be­ing placed on the pa­ter­nity list Thurs­day. His wife gave birth to the cou­ple’s first child, a girl, on Wed­nes­day.

Car­pen­ter leads the Car­di­nals with nine home runs and 32 RBI.

To make room for Car­pen­ter on the 25-man ros­ter, St. Louis des­ig­nated in­fielder Ruben Te­jada for as­sign­ment Satur­day. Te­jada was bat­ting .176 over 23 games with no homers and three RBI.

If Te­jada is re­leased, St. Louis would be re­spon­si­ble for the re­main­der of his US$1.5 mil­lion salary this year, which was US$1,049,180 en­ter­ing Satur­day.
