He made it back to the majors with the St. Louis Browns in 1916. The following season, he was selected off waivers by the St. Louis Cardinals and became their regular first baseman. Paulette was versatile on the field; he played every infield position for the Cardinals in 1918. In July 1919, he was traded to the Philadelphia Phillies. He played a career-high 143 games for them in 1920.
However, in the wake of the Black Sox Scandal, Paulette was permanently suspended from organized baseball. He had allegedly received gifts from St. Louis gamblers and also offered to throw some games early in the 1919 season.
