TOP STORY
Wainwright off game, chased early in defeat
Getty
(MLB.com) It was as atypical a start as there has been in some time for Adam Wainwright, who self-destructed in a fifth inning that cost the Cardinals their series opener against Tampa Bay on Tuesday.

En route to a 7-2 victory in front of 43,623 fans at Busch Stadium, the Rays chased Wainwright during a five-run fifth in which Tampa Bay tallied only two hits. Wainwright provided the rest of the assistance, committing a fielding error, walking three and hitting one in a start he was making on extra rest.

Wainwright sailed through the first four innings on 48 pitches, allowing a second-inning run on a safety squeeze by Rays starter Jake Odorizzi, but otherwise keeping the Rays from gaining much offensive traction. The unraveling then started with a walk to nine-hole hitter Kevin Kiermaier to begin the fifth inning in a 1-1 game.

Wainwright followed with an out and had another one rolling just feet away but whiffed as he reached down to glove it. Ben Zobrist ...    [ More ]

Matheny says Taveras will stay here
AP
(STLToday.com) Rookie outfielder Oscar Taveras, hitting .190 before Tuesday's game, sat for the fifth time in the last seven starts. Manager Mike Matheny said the Cardinals were trying "to win today. We're not here in the development business.

"There are times when you try to give guys exposure, but the overriding factor is you've got to do what we can to win. Along with that, you don't want a guy to just sit here where he could be getting some much-needed ...    [ More ]
Siegrist is back, ready to pitch again

(STLToday.com) Lefthander Kevin Siegrist, having completed his rehabilitation option at Class AA Springfield, was in the Cardinals' clubhouse Tuesday night. He wasn't active, but he could be either tonight or almost certainly this weekend in Chicago.

Siegrist, who has missed two months with a left forearm strain and a subsequent nerve issue in his shoulder, passed what was supposed to be his final test by working into a second inning, throwing 27 pitches, in Springfield's game Monday night. Late ...    [ More ]

(MLB.com) While the Cardinals won't make the final decision until Wednesday, general manager John Mozeliak said it's "a real possibility" that left-hander Kevin Siegrist will be activated from the 15-day disabled list prior to the Cardinals' series finale against the Rays.

Siegrist rejoined the Major League team on Tuesday, one day after he threw 27 pitches in a 1 1/3-inning rehab appearance for Double-A Springfield. That was Siegrist's fifth rehab outing and accomplished the final thing ...    [ More ]

Wacha targets September return after MRI
AP
(MLB.com) With approval from the medical staff after they read the results of Monday's MRI exam, Michael Wacha plans to increase his strength exercises over the next two weeks with the hope that he'll then be cleared to begin a throwing program.

If all goes as the Cardinals hope, Wacha will resume throwing during the first full week of August, which would then put him on schedule to return to the Cards' rotation in early September. Wacha, who last pitched on June 17, has been nursing a stress ...    [ More ]

(STLToday.com) Injured Cardinals righthander Michael Wacha still hasn't been cleared to throw. But general manager John Mozeliak said today that Wacha, who has a stress reaction in his right scapula, has healed to the point that he will "ramp up" his pre-throwing program beginning Tuesday.

The Cardinals hope that Wacha can begin throwing in two weeks.

Wacha underwent both an MRI and CT scan Monday and Mozeliak said the results were encouraging to ...    [ More ]

MLB trade rumors: Cardinals, Indians eyeing David Price?
(Sporting News) David Price is the biggest name on this year's trade market. The Rays ace can become a free agent after next season, and the small-market Rays know they don't have the money to ink him to a long-term deal. And while the Rays have been playing better of late, they're still several games below .500 and will need a big second half to get back into contention.

With that in mind, conventional wisdom holds that now is the ideal time to move Price for a package of top prospects. Here is the ...    [ More ]
Cards hit a Dodgers nerve
(STLToday.com) Despite Don Mattingly's arm waving and arguing, the Dodgers are happy home plate umpire Ed Hickox didn't eject Trevor Rosenthal after he hit Hanley Ramirez in the ninth inning Sunday.

"Thank God he didn't throw him out, because I came up and got a hit," said Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, whose ninth-inning single prevented a Cardinals sweep and led to a 4-3 Dodgers win. "Who knows if I would have gotten a hit against Freeman?"

But they are upset at what they call ...    [ More ]
Cards decked by Adrian's ninth-inning single

(MLB.com) He had sealed wins in each of the first two games of the series, but Trevor Rosenthal was unable to preserve a tie on Sunday night as the Cardinals sought a sweep and sole possession atop the National League Central for the first time this season.

A two-out single by Adrian Gonzalez pushed across the winning run for the Dodgers, who escaped with a 4-3 win in front of 45,255 at Busch Stadium.

Tests show no concussion for Holliday in collision

(MLB.com) Tests for a possible concussion came back negative on Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday, who exited Saturday's 4-2 win in the fifth inning, four innings after he collided with Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez while scampering back to second base.

Holliday drove home two runs with a first-inning single and advanced to second when Carl Crawford bobbled the ball in left field. Before throwing a pitch to the next batter, Matt Adams, Dodgers starter Zack Greinke made a pickoff throw to ...    [ More ]
Backed by big first, Kelly clamps down on Dodgers

(MLB.com) It was just three weeks ago that the Cardinals left Los Angeles insistent that they not be judged by their most recent body of work. The words were empty, though, as they had faded against the surging Dodgers, scoring just four times in a four-game series.

On Saturday, they matched that total with an ambush against an All-Star.

The Cardinals positioned themselves for a sweep of the Dodgers with Saturday's 4-2 win in which they scored all of their runs within a four-batter ...    [ More ]
