Wainwright undergoes elbow scope
AP
(STLToday.com) A second look this week at the most-discussed elbow of the Cardinals' playoff run led to surgery Friday meant to alleviate the recurring irritation ace Adam Wainwright felt in his pitching arm during the season.

The Cardinals' righthander had an arthroscopic procedure completed to trim cartilage inside his right elbow, the club confirmed. The surgery happened days after team officials said Monday its leading pitcher had been prescribed rest for the elbow and that he "should have a normal offseason." Wainwright requested and sought a second opinion later in the week, and that physician's review Thursday of an MRI scan of Wainwright's elbow suggested Friday's surgery to remove the area of cartilage that had caused irritation on the back side of the elbow.

General manager John Mozeliak said the repair would not impact Wainwright's availability for 2015, the second year of a five-year extension Wainwright signed in 2013. The ligament ...     [ More ]

The club confirmed the surgery was done Friday.

Molina, Wainwright finalists for Gold Glove awards
AP
(STLToday.com) Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina missed seven weeks of the previous season recovering from thumb surgery.

He's about to learn if his reputation can overcome injury.

Molina and pitcher Adam Wainwright have been revealed as finalists for the Rawlings Gold Glove Award at their respective positions. Both have been previous winners for the top defensive award in the game. Both also have strong challengers to their hold on the award this season.

Matheny, Mozeliak keep lines open
AP
(STLToday.com) For much of the first half of Monday morning's 58-minute exit news conference at Busch Stadium, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny sat impassively next to general manager John Mozeliak. Matheny dressed casual. Mo arrived in suit and bow tie. Mo handled most of the heavy talking while his manager maintained a stern visage and flat cadence.

With the clock bearing down on noon, a question was posed to both regarding the evolution of a working relationship that began three years ago next ...    [ More ]
Cardinals may gain Spring Training neighbors, stay in Jupiter
AP
(MLB.com) The Cardinals appear on the verge of gaining two new spring neighbors, as the Board of County Commissioners in Palm Beach County, Fla., approved financing for the Nationals and Astros to build a Spring Training facility in the county on Tuesday. The organizations now have 90 days to select a site for the complex, which will be a close commute for the Cardinals, who share a Spring Training facility with the Marlins in Jupiter.

The Cardinals, who have trained at Roger Dean Stadium ...    [ More ]
Cardinals seek more offense
AP
(STLToday.com) As Mozeliak and Matheny outlined their view of next year's team, they described a roster that will return largely intact. Five starting pitchers are in place. Carlos Martinez and others could fill the eighth inning after Pat Neshek leaves as a free agent. And all eight positions have an incumbent.

The room for an impact addition is limited, without clearing a starter.

That leaves the Cardinals banking on internal improvement, returns to career norms.

Mozeliak says Jay is Cards' center fielder for 2015
AP
(STLToday.com) Persistence apparently has paid off for Jon Jay. Effectively stripped of his starting center field job last spring after the acquisition of speedy Peter Bourjos from the Los Angeles Angels, Jay gradually worked his way into a share of the center-field role and then finally secured it again by the end of the season.

His defense returned to its 2012 level and the lefthanded hitter batted .303 -- he had hit .300 or more in two other seasons -- besides batting .375 against lefthanded ...    [ More ]
Cardinals prioritize upgrading bench, bullpen
AP
(MLB.com) Describing the organization's offseason strategy as opportunistic, general manager John Mozeliak is expected to seek bullpen and bench depth this offseason, while relying on returning players to fill the rotation and starting position player spots.

"When you look at our overall club for next year, we feel pretty comfortable with where we're at," Mozeliak said. "But we certainly want to make some needed adjustments if possible."

The Cardinals are unlikely to re-sign any of ...    [ More ]
Cards expect full coaching staff to return
AP
(MLB.com) Unless any of manager Mike Matheny's coaches choose to take a position elsewhere, the Cardinals anticipate retaining their full coaching staff for 2015. Most members of the staff are already under contract for next season, and general manager John Mozeliak indicated on Monday that any who aren't will be offered an opportunity to return.

If the Cardinals were to bring back their entire coaching staff, it would be a first since Matheny assumed the managerial seat. He had to replace ...    [ More ]
Jay to have wrist surgery; Yadi, Waino prescribed rest
AP
(MLB.com) The Cardinals intend to tender Jon Jay, a second-year arbitration-eligible player, a contract this winter and have him open the season as the team's starting center fielder. But before any of that happens, Jay will have his left wrist scoped in order to address an injury that occurred about three months ago.

General manager John Mozeliak, speaking at an end-of-the-season media debriefing, made that announcement on Monday while also providing updates on others recovering from injury. ...    [ More ]
Neshek, four other Cards will be free agents
AP
(STLToday.com) The Cardinals' roster has five players who will be free agents in the week following the end of the World Series. The club is not expected to immediately pursue any of them and it's likely not one will be back with the Cardinals. No qualifying offers will be forth coming from the Cardinals. The five free to go:
