Found January 26, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The St. Louis Cardinals are among the teams interested in free agent shortstop Ronny Cedeno, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. St. Louis is set to enter the season with Rafael Furcal as their everyday player at shortstop. The veteran is currently rehabbing the elbow injury that ended his 2012 season, but the Cardinals expect him to be ready for the start of spring training. However, it’s not clear how his elbow will hold up throughout the season. He elected not to undergo surgery, and the team should be able to determine how much playing time he can handle during the spring. Pete Kozma stood in for Furcal last season, but it appears the Cardinals may be looking for additional insurance at shortstop in the form of Cedeno. Last season for the New York Mets, Cedeno hit .259/.332/.410 with 11 doubles and four home runs over 166 at-bats. The 29-year-old owns a career line of .247/.290/.357.
