Lyons tabbed to fill Kelly's spot in rotation
Getty
(MLB.com) The Cardinals made official on Sunday the roster move most had been anticipating since starter Joe Kelly went on the disabled list Thursday with a left hamstring strain. It will be lefty Tyler Lyons, manager Mike Matheny confirmed, who will take Kelly's spot in the rotation and start Monday against the Mets.

Lyons will join the team in New York once recalled, and the Cardinals will open up a spot for him on the 25-man roster by optioning one of their extra relievers either Jorge Rondon or Eric Fornataro to Triple-A Memphis. That will return the club to a seven-man bullpen.

Matheny said that Lyons' last start a seven-inning outing in which he allowed one run on five hits and struck out six as well as his experience as a starter in the Majors last season played into the decision to make him the first callup. It also worked out that Monday would have been Lyons' next day to pitch ...    [ More ]

Garcia, Motte have good rehab outings
AP
(MLB.com) Jaime Garcia threw two scoreless innings and Jason Motte one during an extended spring training game on Saturday. Both players have remained in Jupiter, Fla., after Spring Training to continue their respective rehab programs.

For Garcia, this marked his first game appearance since May 17, 2013. He underwent season-ending surgery ...    [ More ]
Cards bullpen secures win for Lynn
AP
(STLToday.com) Lance Lynn, a pitcher who has benefited often from the Cardinals lineup, found a way to win Saturday by relying on the bullpen.

Lynn improved to 4-0 through four starts this season when relievers Kevin Siegrist, Carlos Martinez, and then closer Trevor Rosenthal finished a game that got a little rocky for the righty.

Siegrist stranded all three batters he inherited from Lynn in the sixth inning, and Martinez and Rosenthal made a 4-3 victory against Washington at Nationals ...    [ More ]
Shaky defense foils Wacha's strong outing
AP
(MLB.com) A day after the Nationals' defense came under scrutiny for its bevy of miscues, the Cardinals did no favors for Michael Wacha as he worked to wiggle out of seventh-inning trouble in a tie game.

Martinez will remain in bullpen - for now
AP
(STLToday.com) The Cardinals intend to use a minor-league pitcher to fill in next week for injured starter Joe Kelly and leave aspiring starter Carlos Martinez and the under-construction bullpen undisturbed.

That plan could change if Kelly's absence is longer than expected.

"If we needed somebody for an extended period of time, it would make sense to give (Martinez) the ball," manager Mike Matheny said Thursday afternoon. "You'd be looking at stretching him out (now) just to ...    [ More ]

(MLB.com) The way Adam Wainwright was carving up the Nationals' offense on Thursday, he'd require only minimal assistance to ensure the Cardinals a win in the opener of a four-game series at Nationals Park.

Turns out, the Nationals' infield defense would be more than generous in giving him a hand.

Cards place Kelly on DL, call for reinforcements

(STLToday.com) If the Cardinals elect to move Carlos Martinez into the rotation as they indicated during spring training they would at some point this season, then at least they'll have the manpower.

The Cardinals placed righty Joe Kelly on the 15-day disabled list this afternoon with a strained hamstring.

The move assures that Kelly, who returned to St. Louis today to have his leg examined by the Cardinals' team physicians, will miss at least three starts. His next scheduled start was ...    [ More ]
Cards lose Kelly to injury, then fall to Crew

(MLB.com) With sights set on their first series sweep of the season, the Cardinals were hindered by their defense and forced to turn to the bullpen early due to an injury the club can only hope doesn't sideline Joe Kelly for long.

Kelly's hamstring injury suffered in the fifth inning as he tried to reach on a bunt single with two outs loomed over Wednesday's 5-1 loss to the Brewers. Miscues by infielders More ]
Kelly exits with tight left hamstring

(MLB.com) Joe Kelly's third start of the season ended after 45 pitches on Wednesday due to left hamstring tightness suffered while trying to bunt his way on base in the fifth inning.

Kelly, one of the quickest and most athletic players in the Cardinals organization, laid down the bunt with two outs in an attempt to turn the lineup over. He raced down the first-base line and came up hobbling after hitting the bag.

Matheny 'surprised' he hasn't used challenge

(MLB.com) Fourteen games into the season, manager Mike Matheny admitted to being "extremely surprised" that he has yet to deploy a challenge in this new era of expanded instant replay across Major League Baseball.

Entering Wednesday, 66 manager challenges had been called through the first two-plus weeks of the season. Only Matheny and Orioles manager Buck Showalter have yet to use their first.

Just because Matheny has not asked for video review, though, does not mean the Cardinals ...    [ More ]
