Yadier Molina starts record label

Yadier Molina spends months each year at the plate cranking out hits. In 2012, the St. Louis Cardinals catcher collected 159 on his way to a .315 batting average, both career bests. Now, the 30-year-old hopes to extend his hit-making skills into the music business. Back home in Puerto Rico for the World Baseball Classic, the backstop announced Molina Records’ first launch, an...

5-year deal good for Craig, Cardinals; no impact on Adams

As soon as the St. Louis Cardinals announced their signing of Allen Craig to a five-year contract with a sixth-year option, some assumed that pushed Matt Adams’ time as a Cardinal to its end. The reality is that while the $31 million deal is good for Craig and good for the Cardinals, it has no impact on Adams’ constricted major league opportunity at all. Here is why. Even before...

Cardinals second base battle to continue into the season

According to Derrick Goold, the Cardinals second base battle will continue into the regular season, with "performance and need dictating the starter." What does this all mean? Well, it means that what once started as an experiment to find another way to get Matt Carpenter's bat into the lineup and make him into a super utility player is quickly becoming a potential...

Rosenthal returns to bullpen with no complaints

JUPITER, Fla. If Trevor Rosenthal has any lingering disappointment from not being picked as the fifth starter, he's doing a darn good job of hiding it so far. Making his first relief appearance since being told he would open the season in the bullpen and not in the starting rotation like he had hoped, the 22-year-old flame thrower reached 100 MPH on four different pitches Sunday...

Cardinals pitcher injured in freak golf accident

The next time Cardinals pitcher Marc Rzepczynski hits the golf course, he should probably wear safety glasses. As first reported by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Rzepczynski was injured at a golf outing on Friday when a golf ball ricocheted and hit the left-handed reliever around his left eye. Although the club is hopeful the injury is not serious, Rzepczynski will miss his scheduled...

Cardinals Injury News: Matt Holliday still recovering from flu

The St. Louis Cardinals didn't get Matt Holliday back yesterday, but at least he was in the clubhouse.  The All-Star outfielder has been battling the flu, and he won't get back on the field until he's kicked it. Matt Holliday has arrived at Roger Dean but said he won't work out or do anything today. He's still dealing with the flu. — B.J. Rains (@BJRains...

Cardinals Position of Interest: Organizational Shortstop

The most talked about issue for the St. Louis Cardinals is what is going on at shortstop. The loss of Rafael Furcal to elbow surgery has hastened the future of the lone position on the organization’s map where there is no ideal succession plan in place. It was an issue that was on thin ice all winter, and could be a focus throughout the summer and into next winter as well. The...

Surrounded on the designated hitter

As I went through my final edit of my previous article about Matt Adams’ playing time blockage with the St. Louis Cardinals, I expanded the section at the end just before posting. To be honest, my motive was to address several other articles I had read recently that offered up hope that the arrival of the designated hitter in the National League would occur soon enough to provide...

Matheny undegoes successful back surgery

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny had surgery Monday to repair a ruptured disk in his lower back. Matheny underwent the procedure in St. Louis. Before leaving the team on Sunday, Matheny said he expected to be back at spring training for Thursday's game against Atlanta in Jupiter. "As of right now, he's feeling great," St. Louis general...

Trevor Rosenthal best-suited to help St. Louis Cardinals as reliever

Trevor Rosenthal might have lost the battle for the final starting rotation spot, but the St. Louis Cardinals gained a great resource for their bullpen in 2013. Trevor Rosenthal – photo from FoxSportsMidwest The Cardinals officially said last week that Rosenthal is out of the running for the fifth spot in the rotation and will start the season in the bullpen. And while that might...

Wainwright sharp, Cardinals blank Marlins

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) -- Adam Wainwright might be spending a little more time in autograph sessions after a picture presented by a fan to sign helped the St. Louis pitcher diagnose a flaw in his mechanics. Wainwright struck out six in 4 2-3 innings and the Cardinals blanked a Miami Marlins split squad 2-0 Saturday. The photograph that benefited Wainwright was taken a couple years...

Marc Rzepczynski involved in a bizarre golf injury

In what seems like the offseason of bizarre baseball injuries (including Francisco Liriano and kids at Christmas, and Joel Peralta getting out of his car to procure a sandwich), Marc Rzepczynski (a.k.a. scrabble) the effective, situational lefty out of the Cardinals strong bullpen added to the casualty list.  As he played golf today in Viera, Florida, presumably after his ball club’s...
