Cardinals activate Peralta, option Sierra to Double-A Springfield

ST. LOUIS — Jhonny Peralta is back and Magneuris Sierra is headed to Springfield — which means that when it’s all said and done, Sierra is moving up in the world, even if he is moving down at the moment.

First, Peralta.

The Cardinals announced Friday that the infielder has been activated from the 10-day disabled list, where he had been residing while recovering from upper respiratory condition.

After a promising spring, Peralta, 34, appeared in eight games with the Cardinals to begin the season, batting .120 (3-for-25) before being placed on the disabled list April 17.
