BALTIMORE (AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals filled out their 25-man roster by purchasing the contract of right-hander Brandon Dickson from Triple-A Memphis.

Dickson replaces former All-Star closer Ryan Franklin, who was given his unconditional release on Wednesday.

Signed as a non-drafted free agent in 2006, the 26-year-old Dickson was 4-7 with a 3.86 ERA in 16 games with Memphis this season.

When he gets into a game, he will become the eighth player to make his major league debut with the Cardinals this year.
