Cards won't retain any free agents
( While the Cardinals were never all that pursuant of their own free agents, the activity of the last week has all but ensured that none of the seven players to enter free agency after finishing the season in St. Louis will return. Only two Mark Ellis and A.J. Pierzynski remain unsigned, and neither has an obvious fit on the Cardinals' 2015 roster.

Of the other five who have already moved elsewhere, they received a combined $30.1 million in guaranteed salary with the possibility that incentives push that final figure even higher. These were investments that did not match the Cardinals' future needs.

Justin Masterson received the most lucrative salary, as he agreed to a one-year, $9.5 million deal with the Red Sox. The Cardinals acquired Masterson in a Trade Deadline deal with the Indians and were hopeful that they would be able to help Masterson turn around a disappointing season. It never happened, and it was clear before the season ended that there would be ...     [ More ]
Matheny picks No. 26 to honor a friend
( It was within weeks of returning from the Dominican Republic and the memorial service for a player that Cardinals manager Mike Matheny attended a funeral for a friend and had a thought he couldn't shake.

How could he share this story? How could he offer a tribute?

First he had to have a conversation.

Matheny shed the No. 22 -- the number he's worn every day as a manager and one of two numbers he wore as a player for the Cardinals -- in order for newcomer to ...    [ More ]
Rockies sign infielder Daniel Descalso to two-year contract
(Denver Post) Seeking a versatile infielder who hits left-handed, the Rockies on Tuesday signed Daniel Descalso to a two-year contract worth $3.6 million.

Descalso, 28, has spent time in the majors in each of the past five seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals and has played in 44 postseason games, including nine games in the World Series.

He has a career batting average of .243, with 68 doubles, 11 triples, 10 home runs, 111 RBIs and 145 runs scored in 529 games.

Former Cards closer Motte heads to Cubs
( A catcher when the Cardinals drafted him and a closer when the Cardinals needed him, Jason Motte is the latest to join the refurbishment on the North Side as he agreed to a deal with the Chicago Cubs, according to reports out of Chicago.

Motte, 32, has agreed to a one-year deal with the Cardinals' rivals, pending a physical, according to reports from WSCR/670 AM and The Chicago Tribune.

With a completion of the deal, it will be the first time in Motte's professional career ...    [ More ]
Cardinals sign slugging first baseman Reynolds
( After a week of meeting with agents of available players who could fill the Cardinals' need to add a right-handed-hitting first baseman, the club has found a fit in Mark Reynolds. The deal, made official Thursday evening, will cover just the 2015 season.

Reynolds, 31, has been one of the Cardinals' targets since the start of the offseason, as his power potential is intriguing to a club that finished the season last in home runs in the National League. Reynolds also brings the ...    [ More ]
Astros sign Pat Neshek
( The Houston Astros have agreed to a three-year, $18.5 million contract with Luke Gregerson and also have agreed to sign reliever Pat Neshek, sources told ESPN's Buster Olney, confirming multiple reports.

Gregerson is expected to take over as the team's closer next season with Neshek, coming off a career season, helping to also fortify the back-end of the team's bullpen.

Gregerson's agreement comes after the Astros reportedly made attempts to sign both David Robertson and ...    [ More ]
Mozeliak meets with Lynn's agent at Winter Meetings
( Though the Cardinals continue to enjoy an under-the-radar Winter Meetings visit to San Diego, it may end up that the most significant aspect of their stay will be the groundwork laid not for a future acquisition but for ensuring a future stay.

Among the agents to visit with general manager John Mozeliak on Tuesday was a member of the Excel Sports Management team, which represents Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn. While Mozeliak would not discuss what topics or player names were discussed ...    [ More ]

Cards' search includes Weeks, Reynolds
( The opening that the Cardinals see on their roster right now is for a righthanded batter who could be a complement for Matt Adams at first base or an option, say, at second base to pair with Kolten Wong.

It is not a role that will get an ample amount of guaranteed playing time.

That's only part of the problem.

Asked about the players who fit the Cardinals' profile for the spot on their bench, general manager John Mozeliak shrugged, somewhat. He was asked if he ...    [ More ]
Martinez will wear No. 18 to honor Taveras
( Carlos Martinez, who had approached the Cardinals with an idea to honor his close friend Oscar Taveras, has received permission from the team to wear No. 18 for the 2015 season.

Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak notified Martinez's representatives today about the number, and it's possible that Martinez could wear the number for the remainder of his career with the Cardinals. That is something that he has requested, and depending on what the team chooses to do to memorialize ...    [ More ]
Cardinals not expected to do much at winter meetings
( The last time Major League Baseball had its winter meetings in San Diego, 29 years ago, they were held at the Town and Country Resort -- which was a series of villa-type structures with an adjacent convention center.

The idea was to offer the opportunity for general managers, managers, agents, sportswriters, etc., to be able to have dialogue outdoors in the warm sun and near poolside, if possible, rather than behind potted palms in some spacious ...    [ More ]
Martinez will get a shot as a starter
( The recent acquisitions of righthanded relievers Jordan Walden and Matt Belisle almost ensure that young Carlos Martinez finally will get a full-fledged shot as a Cardinals starter next spring. Amid that scenario, Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said Wednesday that the club wasn't really in the market now for any additional starting help.

"I don't feel that's something we have to do," said Mozeliak. "The way we're structured, we really want to ...    [ More ]
