Just because. - Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

A daily recap of the minor league players in the Cardinals' farm system.

The system went 4-and-1 and enjoyed effective starting pitching from Richard Castillo (Springfield), Joe Cuda (Palm Beach), and Chris Perry (Peoria). Xavier Scruggs did his three-true-outcome thing for Springfield. Juan Herrera tallied his first hits in the Cardinals' system and Jonathan Rodriguez continued mashing in Palm Beach.
