ST. LOUIS -- The Cardinals have added catcher Cody Stanley to the 40-man roster and released outfielder Shane Robinson.

St. Louis also sent right-hander Keith Butler outright to Triple-A Memphis in moves announced Wednesday. The Cardinals have four spots open on the 40-man roster.

The 25-year-old Stanley batted .283 with 12 home runs and 43 RBIs in 103 games at Double-A Springfield last season with 13 steals. He threw out 42 percent of attempted base stealers and was a Texas League All-Star.

A left-handed batter, Stanley hit .292 with 12 RBIs in 21 games during the just-completed Arizona Fall League season.

Robinson, 30, ended the season on the 60-day disabled list with a shoulder injury. He batted .150 with four RBIs in 60 at-bats.
