Barret Browning Profile
With the promotion of pitcher Brandon Dickson from Memphis to St. Louis on Friday, the Cardinals need to shed a player. That will be left-handed reliever Barret Browning, reports Joe Strauss of the Post-Dispatch.
The 27-year-old, acquired in the minor league phase of the December 2011 Rule 5 draft, made his MLB debut on June 30. Browning appeared in 22 games for St. Louis, including Thursday afternoon, when he allowed two baserunners in just 1/3 of an inning.
Overall, Browning has a 1-3 record with a 5.12 ERA over his first 19 1/3 MLB innings. He walked seven, struck out 11 and gave up two home runs.
