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

The team also outrighted right-hander Keith Butler 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 RBI in 103 games at Double-A Springfield last season with 13 steals. He threw out 42 percent of attempted basestealers and was a Texas League All-Star.
