Matheny picks No. 26 to honor a friend
Getty
(STLToday.com) It was within weeks of returning from the Dominican Republic and the memorial service for a player that Cardinals manager Mike Matheny attended a funeral for a friend and had a thought he couldn't shake.

How could he share this story? How could he offer a tribute?

First he had to have a conversation.

Matheny shed the No. 22 -- the number he's worn every day as a manager and one of two numbers he wore as a player for the Cardinals -- in order for newcomer to Jason Heyward to continue to honor a high school teammate who was killed in a car accident. This offseason, Carlos Martinez has received permission to wear No. 18, the number last worn by his teammate and close friend Oscar Taveras, who was killed in a single-car accident in the Dominican shortly after the season ended. Matheny intended to do something similar with his choice of number. He just had to ask closer Trevor Rosenthal if he wouldn't mind changing from No. 26.

The No. 26 was the ...     [ More ]

Cardinals sign slugging first baseman Reynolds
AP
(MLB.com) After a week of meeting with agents of available players who could fill the Cardinals' need to add a right-handed-hitting first baseman, the club has found a fit in Mark Reynolds. The deal, made official Thursday evening, will cover just the 2015 season.

Reynolds, 31, has been one of the Cardinals' targets since the start of the offseason, as his power potential is intriguing to a club that finished the season last in home runs in the National League. Reynolds also brings the ...    [ More ]

Mozeliak meets with Lynn's agent at Winter Meetings
AP
(MLB.com) Though the Cardinals continue to enjoy an under-the-radar Winter Meetings visit to San Diego, it may end up that the most significant aspect of their stay will be the groundwork laid not for a future acquisition but for ensuring a future stay.

Among the agents to visit with general manager John Mozeliak on Tuesday was a member of the Excel Sports Management team, which represents Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn. While Mozeliak would not discuss what topics or player names were discussed ...    [ More ]

Cards' search includes Weeks, Reynolds
(STLToday.com) The opening that the Cardinals see on their roster right now is for a righthanded batter who could be a complement for Matt Adams at first base or an option, say, at second base to pair with Kolten Wong.

It is not a role that will get an ample amount of guaranteed playing time.

That's only part of the problem.

Asked about the players who fit the Cardinals' profile for the spot on their bench, general manager John Mozeliak shrugged, somewhat. He was asked if he ...    [ More ]

Cardinals not expected to do much at winter meetings
AP
(STLToday.com) The last time Major League Baseball had its winter meetings in San Diego, 29 years ago, they were held at the Town and Country Resort -- which was a series of villa-type structures with an adjacent convention center.

The idea was to offer the opportunity for general managers, managers, agents, sportswriters, etc., to be able to have dialogue outdoors in the warm sun and near poolside, if possible, rather than behind potted palms in some spacious ...    [ More ]
Martinez will get a shot as a starter
AP
(STLToday.com) The recent acquisitions of righthanded relievers Jordan Walden and Matt Belisle almost ensure that young Carlos Martinez finally will get a full-fledged shot as a Cardinals starter next spring. Amid that scenario, Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said Wednesday that the club wasn't really in the market now for any additional starting help.

"I don't feel that's something we have to do," said Mozeliak. "The way we're structured, we really want to ...    [ More ]
Cardinals willing to rework Lackey's reduced contract
AP
(MLB.com) Though the Cardinals have veteran starter John Lackey under contract for the 2015 season, general manager John Mozeliak said he plans to meet with Lackey's agent, Steve Hilliard, at next week's Winter Meetings to possibly discuss the good-faith gesture of restructuring Lackey's contract.

The Cardinals inherited the contract Lackey signed with Boston in 2009, which included a provision that if Lackey missed significant time to injury, a 2015 option at the Major League minimum would ...    [ More ]
