ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Cardinals assistant general manager Michael Girsch has withdrawn his candidacy for the GM opening with the San Diego Padres.

St. Louis made a brief announcement during Tuesday night's game against the Pirates.

The 37-year-old Girsch is in his fourth season as assistant GM under John Mozeliak with the Cardinals. He joined the team as coordinator of amateur scouting in 2006.
