Fowler, Cardinals agree on 5-year deal
( going in and grinding and figuring out a way to get on base and figuring out what that does to an opposition, and what it does to a pitching staff, and how it elevates pitch counts, and how it does create a sense of rhythm in your offense. The more players that you can have like that, I think the better off you're going to be."

Fowler also immediately improves the look of the outfield. Moving Grichuk to left would allow the Cardinals to replace the departed Matt Holliday, who signed with the Yankees, with an above-average fielder. Fowler is not regarded as an exceptional center fielder, but he did benefit from the Cubs' decision to position him farther back in the field this past season. After registering -20 Defensive Runs Saved in 2014 and a -12 DRS in '15, Fowler had +1 DRS in '16.

Signing Fowler would complete the biggest item on the Cardinals' to-do list this offseason. The team already made a splash in the relief market by inking lefty Brett Cecil to a ...     [ More ]
Cards want to build around Wong, not trade him
( As the Cardinals continue to explore the trade market for a potential outfield addition, it's no surprise that clubs have often asked for top prospects in return. But there has also been widespread interest in players who have already ascended to the Majors, one of those being second baseman Kolten Wong.

Though Wong, who signed a five-year, $25.5 million contract in March, has not yet pieced together six consecutive months of steady production, his athleticism, age (Wong turned 26 in ...    [ More ]
Holliday fitted for pinstripes, signs deal with Yankees
( Before some of the teams had unpacked for the annual winter meetings, Matt Holliday had found a new home --?one with a right-field dimension and fans that could make the most of his swing.

Holliday has agreed to a one-year deal with the New York Yankees, The Post-Dispatch has confirmed.

He'll get a chance to serve as the Yankees' designated hitter, but he could also play the outfield and first base in the Bronx.

Holliday, who turns 37 in January, ...    [ More ]
Cardinals non-tender reliever Maness
( Reliever Seth Maness, once the Cardinals' double-play specialist out of the bullpen, is now a free agent after the club opted not to tender the second-year arbitration-eligible player a contract before Friday's deadline.

The Cardinals did, however, tender contracts to their other five arbitration-eligible players: Trevor Rosenthal, Matt Adams, Carlos Martinez, Kevin Siegrist and Michael Wacha. The club now turns its attention toward reaching contract agreements with those five ...    [ More ]

Cardinals part with Garcia, land 3 Braves prospects
( Jaime Garcia's injury-plagued tenure with the Cardinals has come to an end, as St. Louis dealt the lefty starter to the Braves on Thursday for a trio of young players. In return, the Cardinals landed right-handers John Gant and Chris Ellis and second baseman Luke Dykstra. Only Gant has previous Major League experience.

When the Cardinals exercised Garcia's $12 million club option after the season, it was with the intention of exploring possible trade partners. Instead of letting ...    [ More ]
Jaime Garcia traded to Braves
(mlbtraderumors) The Braves have struck a deal to acquire veteran left-hander Jaime Garcia from the Cardinals in exchange for prospects, Mark Saxon of reports.

Garcia, 30, has long been a steady member of the Cardinals' rotation but struggled a bit in 2016, working to a career-worst 4.67 ERA with 7.9 K/9, 3.9 BB/9 and a very strong 56.7 percent ground-ball rate in 171 2/3 innings. He's controllable only through the 2017 season, as the Cardinals exercised his $12MM option at season's end. ...    [ More ]

Holliday might be moving on, but his impact in St. Louis is long-lasting
In the hours after the car accident that nearly shattered her youngest daughter, Diane Warnecke had been told to expect some movement, some alertness from Nikki the next morning.

Two weeks later, Diane was still waiting.

A brain injury had put Nikki into a non-induced coma, and the other damage wreaked by a driver under the influence had lacerated organs, fractured her hip and left her in pain but unable ...    [ More ]
Cardinals sign curveball-throwing Cecil to bolster lefty-needing bullpen
( A begoggled Blue Jay who spent his entire major league career tormenting his fellow lefties will now flip his signature curveball for the Cardinals.

In need of a replacement for Zach Duke and aware of the limited left-handed options behind Kevin Siegrist in the bullpen, the Cardinals on Saturday snagged one of the top southpaw setup men on the free-agent market. Brett Cecil has swapped birds.

The Cardinals have agreed to a four-year deal ...    [ More ]

Holliday finally a free agent; at least one NL team interested
( A wrinkle in Matt Holliday's contract kept him on the Cardinals' roster until Thursday, when the players' union and Major League Baseball agreed that he could be set loose as a free agent.

Holliday had a clause in his contract with the Cardinals that automatically triggered an option for 2017 if he finished in the top 10 for the National League MVP.

Until the vote was officially announced, next week, he would not be a free agent. His agent, Scott Boras, met with ...    [ More ]
