Feeling left arm fatigue, Garcia unlikely for Opening Day
Getty
(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 right."

General manager John Mozeliak later followed up with additional details, noting that Garcia reported to the Cardinals' facility on Saturday and noted that he was feeling left arm fatigue, specifically in the area between his biceps and shoulder.

"He just hasn't bounced back after his last start in a positive way," Mozeliak added. "He felt it was difficult to keep at this pace, so we decided to slow things down. He was fast-tracking already, and I think everybody was ...     [ 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 ]
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 ]
Wacha sets tone with stingy start before Cards win late
AP
(MLB.com) Cardinals right-hander Michael Wacha and Nationals Opening Day starter Max Scherzer were engaged in a terrific pitchers' duel to start Wednesday's matchup at Roger Dean Stadium, before the Cards broke through in the eighth inning for a 1-0 victory.

Nats reliever Aaron Barrett began the inning by hitting Kolten Wong with a pitch, and pinch-runner Charlie Tilson stole second base after Wong was removed. Barrett then uncorked a wild pitch, advancing Tilson to third, and Ty Kelly drove ...    [ More ]
Cards are MLB's most profitable team
(STLToday.com) Forbes is out with its annual report that estimates the value of each of the 30 major-league baseball franchises.

And the Cardinals, as you might imagine, are healthy and thriving under team owner Bill DeWitt Jr.

According to Forbes the Cardinals are MLB's most profitable franchise, with an operating income of $73.6 million. (Operating income is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization.)

The Cardinals rank 6th in revenue, at $294 ...    [ More ]
Carpenter out early, does not seem seriously hurt
AP
(STLToday.com)  Matt Carpenter, hit by a pitch in the right quadriceps in the first inning of Wednesday's exhibition game, came out of the game after two innings. It was announced Carpenter had a contusion and that he had been removed for precautionary reasons.

But Carpenter did not appear to be seriously injured as he walked off the field and toward the clubhouse. 

St. Louisan Max Scherzer, who nicked Carpenter, and the Cardinals' Michael Wacha pitched scoreless ball through five ...    [ More ]
Cards cut four, including Diaz and Stanley
AP
(STLToday.com) The Cardinals optioned shortstop Aledmys Diaz to Class AAA Memphis after Monday's rainout, and they cut three others from camp to bring the major-league roster closer into view.

Diaz, the Cuban infielder the Cardinals signed a year ago, had eight at-bats with the major-league and hit .250 with two singles, an RBI, and one strikeout. He was used mostly as a defensive player late in games and manager Mike Matheny lauded him as the team's only other natural shortstop in camp after ...    [ More ]
Lynn holds Red Sox to one hit in rain-shortened game
AP
(MLB.com) The Cardinals scored two runs against Red Sox right-hander Rick Porcello in the top of the fifth to break a scoreless tie. With Boston trailing, 2-0, and set to bat in the bottom of the fifth, the game went into a 55-minute rain delay before it was called due to unplayable field conditions.

Porcello got his work in, giving up six hits and two runs over five innings. The righty walked one and struck out five.

Lance Lynn turned in a strong performance for the Cardinals in ...    [ More ]
