Two bad games was enough to get pitcher Bud Smith shipped off the Cardinals’ roster to Memphis. Smith has been sent down, losing his spot in the starting rotation. Manager Tony Larussa says veteran Andy Benes, who pitched well this spring but hasn’t had a good regular season in years, will take a spot in the rotation. The move means Darryl Kile will start the season with the Cardinals, despite offseason surgery that limited his work this spring. He and Benes will both pitch in the Cardinals’ final exhibition game against Memphis.
