The Cardinals have released Amaury Cazana, according to Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post Dispatch (via Twitter). The news was first reported by Brian Walton of The Cardinal Nation (via Twitter). In parts of six seasons at the Triple-A level, the corner outfielder owns a .338/.408/.528 slash line.
The Cuban was loaned out to the Triple-A Mexican league for the last two years but was with Triple-A Memphis this season, where he hit .238/.297/.327 in 30 games. Cazana, whose birth year has been reported to be somewhere between 1974 and 1978, developed a good deal of buzz amongst Cardinals fans over the years but never appeared in the majors.
