Harris posted Tuesday on his personal Instagram account that he was released by the Cardinals.
Harris, who underwent Tommy John surgery last June, opened the season with Triple-A Memphis. He made just two appearances in the Pacific Coast League before hitting the 7-day disabled list in April, and the Cardinals concluded soon thereafter that the 31-year-old didn't have a future in the organization. It's possible that Harris' elbow still isn't back to full strength following the surgery, so it wouldn't be surprising if he sat out the rest of the season and attempted to land a minor-league deal with another organization this winter.
