Cardinals get reliever Cishek
The St. Louis Cardinals bolstered their bullpen Friday, getting Steve Cishek in a trade with the Miami Marlins.
The Cardinals sent double-A pitcher Kyle Barraclough to Miami for the sidearming Cishek, who is 2-6 with three saves and a 4.50 earned-run average this year. The 29-year-old right-hander had trouble earlier this season and was sent down to double A but had an ERA of 0.71 in 13 games since returning to Miami in mid-June. Etc.
The New York Mets acquired infielder Juan Uribe, outfielder Kelly Johnson and cash from the Atlanta Braves for minor league pitchers John Gant and Rob Whalen. Uribe had been traded from the Dodgers earlier this season for Alberto Callaspo. . . . The Houston Astros cleared roster space for newly acquired pitcher Scott Kazmir by optioning outfielder L.J. Hoes to triple-A Fresno.
