Cardinals Activate David Freese For Home Opener

Team Options Infielder Ryan Jackson To Memphis (AAA)

The St. Louis Cardinals announced prior to today's home opener against the Cincinnati Reds that they have activated third baseman David Freese from the 15-day disabled list and optioned infielder Ryan Jackson to Memphis (AAA).  Freese had been on the disabled list since March 23 due to a lower back strain.

Freese appeared in three games at Memphis this past weekend in an injury rehabilitation assignment and batted .333 (4-for-12) with two doubles and four RBI.  He was 3-for-5 in yesterday's series finale against Oklahoma City.
