The Cardinals announced on Thursday they have acquired left-handed pitcher Ricardo Sánchez from the Seattle Mariners on a waiver claim.
To account for the addition of Sánchez, the Cardinals designated infielder Ramon Urias for assignment.
Sánchez, 22, started 27 games for the Arkansas Travelers of the double-A Texas League in 2019 going 8-12 with a 4.44 ERA. He was also selected to the Texas League All-Star game.
Sánchez is a native of Venezuela, and was originally signed by the Angels as an international free agent in 2013. He was also in the Atlanta Braves organization before being traded to Seattle in 2018.
Pitchers and catchers report to Jupiter next week for spring training, and the first full-squad workouts are scheduled for Feb. 17.
