Grichuk, Kozma complete Cards' 25-man roster
Getty
(STLToday.com) Almost two months of baseball didn't change what manager Mike Matheny thought of outfielder Randal Grichuk and the young slugger's ceiling -- he had it pretty high already -- but it has modified the feel of the organization.

The Cardinals announced that Grichuk and Pete Kozma will complete the major-league bench for opening day, and Matheny acknowledged the goal now is to get Grichuk enough playing time to continue developing as the potential everyday player he has proven he can be.

"We'll find out," Matheny said. "I think that's how we'll go about it. I see him just as a very valuable weapon offensively, defensively, and on the bases. Just another righthanded bat to give us those options. We're going to try to give him as much work as we possibly can. Just watching what he's done this spring couldn't imagine leaving Florida without him on our club."

Kozma will serve as the backup shortstop and utility infielder. He also could start at second base as a ...     [ More ]

Wacha not at his sharpest, but he's healthy
AP
(STLToday.com) By walking three men in five innings and giving up leadoff doubles in each of his first three innings Monday against Washington, Cardinals righthander Michael Wacha wasn't quite the caliber of the MVP in the 2013 league championship series. But he has shown he is healthy, after last year's scare with the stress reaction in his right shoulder.

"I'm not overly surprised or shocked or anything else," said manager Mike Matheny. "I think everybody else is, but I'm not.

Villanueva makes team, hinting Martinez is the fifth starter
(STLToday.com) With Carlos Villanueva's decision day looming, Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak and manager Mike Matheny met with the veteran reliever to reveal their plans with him and the opening-night bullpen.

Villanueva will not be opting out. He has made the club.

Matheny confirmed the decision Monday morning as the team took the field to stretch -- with Villanueva mingling with the other relievers. The righthander reliever had a chance Monday to elect to become a free agent ...    [ More ]
Gonzales, Heyward set pace for Cardinals
AP
(MLB.com) Infielder Matt Reynolds, who is making a final push for a spot on the Mets' bench, singled and scored the go-ahead run during the sixth inning of New York's 3-2 victory over the Cardinals on Sunday.

Reynolds opened the inning with a hit off Cardinals reliever Seth Maness and moved to third on an Anthony Recker double. He then scored on a fielder's choice to push the Mets toward their Grapefruit League-best 16th win.

Mets first baseman Lucas Duda finished with a three-hit, ...    [ More ]
Cardinals weigh Opening Day roster flexibility
AP
(MLB.com) Seven days out from an Opening Night matchup against the Cubs, the Cardinals continue to weigh the various ways in which they could construct their roster because of the flexibility offered by a high concentration of early-season off days.

Manager Mike Matheny acknowledged that the club is still discussing all three possibilities. One is that they carry a fifth starter, even though the club doesn't have to use that starter until April 19. Taking one anyway would allow the Cardinals ...    [ More ]
Lynn battles elements in second spring start
AP
(MLB.com) Despite needing 40-plus pitches to navigate through his first two innings, Lance Lynn looked sharp against a fairly formidable Tigers lineup in his second start of the spring and ended up finishing five innings with a pitch count of 81.

Lynn's biggest foe may have been the wind gusting out to right field. It carried what looked to be a routine fly ball off Miguel Cabrera's bat over the wall for a two-run homer in the first.

"It happens," Lynn shrugged afterward. "Other ...    [ More ]
Feeling left arm fatigue, Garcia unlikely for Opening Day
AP
(MLB.com) Just as the Cardinals began to allow themselves to get excited about what a healthy Jaime Garcia could add to their rotation, the lefty suffered another medical setback that will almost certainly preclude him from making the Opening Day roster.

Manager Mike Matheny announced after the club's 4-3 loss to the Tigers that Garcia was scratched from his scheduled start on Sunday after he alerted the team's medical staff on Saturday afternoon that "he's feeling something that isn't ...    [ More ]
Cardinals trade Freeman to Rangers
AP
(MLB.com) Lefty Sam Freeman, whose roster status was complicated by his being out of Minor League options, was traded to the Rangers on Saturday. In return, the Cardinals will receive a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Freeman, a 32nd-round pick by the Cardinals in 2008, made 81 appearances for the club over the last three seasons. The Cardinals have long lauded his ability, but his ability to stick in the Majors has been complicated by persistent command troubles. There was ...    [ More ]
Heyward ends drought, while Waino a bit shaky
AP
(MLB.com) Giancarlo Stanton blasted a home run and tacked on an RBI double on Thursday as the Marlins edged the Cardinals, 5-3, at Roger Dean Stadium. The Miami slugger connected for the second time this spring, unloading a mammoth drive off Adam Wainwright in the first inning.

Jason Heyward responded in the bottom of the frame with a big blast of his own, putting the Cardinals on the board against Henderson Alvarez. The shot to right was Heyward's first extra-base hit in Grapefruit League ...    [ More ]
Cardinal Fans are the Best in Baseball
Getty
(Forbes) Cardinal fans were the clear winners. According to Nielsen Scarborough, the team has more local fans than any other in MLB -- 76% of St. Louisans watched, attended or listened to a game last year. It's the fourth year in a row the team has held that honor, the eleventh time in the last 15 years. Every other year they had the second largest fan base. (In comparison, less than half of the city's population identify as fans of the NFL's Rams.) Over 3.54 million fans pushed through Busch Stadium's ...    [ More ]
Wainwright to make second spring start
AP
(STLToday.com) Adam Wainwright makes his second spring start, and also second to last, when he faces the Miami Marlins on Thursday, with the intent of his reaching the area of 80 pitches. Wainwright tossed four scoreless innings in his first start. 

Wainwright, whose schedule was adjusted after he recovered from an abdominal strain, will have a keystone pairing of second baseman Dean Anna and shortstop Pete Kozma behind him, with Randal Grichuk in center field.

Kozma is sure to be on the ...    [ More ]
