–Following the St. Louis Cardinals 5-3 loss to Minnesota on Monday, the team announced Charlie Tilson had been optioned to Memphis (AAA).
Tilson had appeared in eight games during the Grapefruit League and despite being just 1-7 at the plate, he led the Cardinals with five runs scored and five stolen bases. Charlie stole 46 bases last season at Springfield (AA).
Defensively, the 23-year old spent the bulk of his playing time in centerfield (18 innings) but also appeared in left (5.0) and right (1.0).
Forty nine players now remain in Spring Training, 12 non-roster invitees, with the Cardinals.
