Matheny will give his No. 22 to Heyward
Getty
(STLToday.com) Cardinals manager Mike Matheny, who has only worn one number since accepting his role with the club, offered No. 22 to newcomer Jason Heyward, but not because of how long the outfielder had worn it or what the outfielder is expected to bring to the club.

It was the weight of why Heyward chose 22 when he reached the majors.

On the eve of his major-league debut in 2010, Heyward traded in No. 71, the number he wore during spring training, for No. 22, a number he would wear for a friend. Heyward adopted it for Andy Wilmot, a high school teammate who had been killed in a car accident a year after he and Heyward helped Henry County (Ga.) High to a state championship. Heyward selected the number Wilmot wore in high school, and Heyward has only worn No. 22 in the majors. He will continue to wear it with the Cardinals.

Matheny knew about the story when he said he would give 22 to Heyward, whom the Cardinals acquired in a ...     [ More ]

Cardinals to use spring to find right mix for lineup
AP
(MLB.com) The only conclusion that Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said he's come to regarding a projected 2015 batting order is that it won't be decided until a little experimentation can be done. And experimentation, of course, is on hold until spring.

What Matheny has made clear in the days since the Cardinals added Jason Heyward's bat into their lineup is that while he'll continue to scribble down potential batting orders, he doesn't intend to set anything in stone until he can see how each ...    [ More ]

With crowded outfield, Cardinals release Robinson
Getty
(MLB.com) With a high concentration of outfielders already projected to be on the Cardinals' Opening Day roster, Shane Robinson has been squeezed out of a roster spot and sent looking for another club to latch onto for 2015.

Choosing not to advance into arbitration with Robinson, the Cardinals have released the 30-year-old outfielder. In other roster tweaks, the team also added catcher Cody Stanley to the 40-man roster by selecting his contract and removed right-hander Keith Butler. Butler ...    [ More ]

Cards land Heyward in four-player deal with Braves
AP
(MLB.com) Needing to fill an unexpected hole in right field for 2015, the Cardinals went for a big splash, acquiring outfielder Jason Heyward from the Braves along with right-handed reliever Jordan Walden. The cost was heavy, however, as the Cardinals sent a pair of former first-round Draft picks right-handers Shelby Miller and Tyrell Jenkins to Atlanta to complete the four-player trade on Monday.

The trade comes three weeks after the death of 22-year-old outfielder Oscar Taveras, who, ...    [ More ]

Cards sign infielder; Descalso's future unclear
AP
(STLToday.com) The Cardinals signed utility infielder Dean Anna to a major-league contract Tuesday, and while Anna adds depth to the team's options for the big-league bench, the move also further complicates how Daniel Descalso fits into the team's plans for 2015.

Anna, 27, is a lefthanded-hitting middle infielder who made his major-league debut with the Yankees this past season. The native of Harvey, Ill., hit .331 to win the Pacific Coast League batting title in 2013, and he had 38 doubles.
