ST. LOUIS -- Shane Robinson went 3-for-4 and scored two runs in Triple-A Memphis' loss to Colorado Springs on Monday night. Afterward, he was summoned into the office of manager Ron "Pop" Warner.
"Appreciate you coming up," Warner said. He then informed Robinson to pack up. He was headed back to Busch Stadium.
Optioned to the Minors only two days ago, Robinson rejoined the Cardinals on Tuesday. He was needed after the Cardinals had to place center fielder Jon Jay on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder sprain.
Though Robinson made it in time for the team's afternoon game against the Cubs, the same couldn't be said for Robinson's belongings. While he took a direct Delta flight from Memphis to St. Louis, his two bags were mistakenly placed on a plane headed to Atlanta.
Robinson expects to get the two bags back before the team boards a flight to San Francisco later on Tuesday. He was, however, forced to scramble for some equipment for the game.
"It's been pretty chaotic," Robinson said. "I am trying to get everything back together and figure out what I need. I'm going to have to walk around and see [whose glove] feels as close to mine."
Fortunately, Robinson wasn't left without bats. He had ordered a new shipment a few weeks ago, and they happened to arrive in St. Louis after he had already departed for Memphis.
