Cardinals call up six from minors

Tuesday, September 6, 2005

ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Cardinals added six players to the roster for the final month of the season on Monday, including the son of pitching coach Dave Duncan.

The Cardinals purchased the contract of first basesman Chris Duncan from Triple-A Memphis. They recalled outfielders Skip Schumaker and John Gall and pitchers Anthony Reyes, Randy Flores and Adam Wainwright.

Reyes could get a few spot starts as the Cardinals set up their rotation for the postseason.

Last year the Cardinals recalled only three players from Memphis, catcher Cody McKay and pitchers Al Reyes and Carmen Cali.
