Cardinals to call up reliever Fick
ST. LOUIS -- The Cardinals will make a roster move to fortify their bullpen on Saturday, as right-hander Chuckie Fick will be called up from Triple-A Memphis, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The Cardinals did not confirm the report, and the corresponding move was not yet known.

Fick, a 6-foot-5 righty, was a 15th-round selection by the Cardinals in the 2007 Draft. The 26-year-old is 1-0 with two saves and a 3.86 ERA in 21 innings over 21 appearances for Memphis this season, with 19 hits allowed, 10 strikeouts and seven walks. Opponents hit .241 against him.

He went 5-3 with a 2.30 ERA in 54 appearances for Memphis in 2011, and was a combined 5-1 with a 3.79 ERA in 32 appearances, six starts, between Memphis and Double-A Springfield in 2010.
