This week’s calendar lists two milestones in the arbitration process to set 2013 salaries for those players with just under three years of major league service to six years.
On Tuesday night, the Players Association will announce which players have filed for arbitration. Given that list will surely include every eligible player not yet under contract for next season, this announcement...
A major benefit of minor league baseball is the close interaction fans can enjoy with players. Some individuals can take that personal involvement to an even higher level by opening up their homes and become host families for players.
Minor leaguers are young, relatively low-paid and usually assigned at the last moment to an unfamiliar outpost far away from home. It is especially...
ST. LOUIS, January 13, 2013 – The St. Louis Cardinals are urging fans attending this weekend’s Winter Warm-Up (#WWU) to donate a baseball glove in support of the “Gloves 4 Troops” effort organized by Cardinals minor league infielder Vance Albitz who hopes to collect at least a thousand baseball gloves and balls by Spring Training 2013.

The St. Louis Cardinals took the field June 10, 2012 against the Cleveland Indians with seven of their projected starters on the disabled list and Matt Holliday on the bench with a minor injury. Not surprisingly, the team was mired in an 11-19 slump. But the Cardinals might be better prepared to handle a similar rash of injuries in 2013.
Ty Wigginton will add depth to the Cardinals...
Will Allen Craig stay healthy in 2013? Image courtesy of Getty Images. Sometimes you have to use the spaghetti method in fantasy baseball. You throw a couple guys at a position and see which one sticks. I think I’ll do this with first base this year. First base isn’t as deep in years past, at least in terms of sure bets. Instead, there are a half dozen young first basemen who...
Former St. Louis Cardinals centerfield Colby Rasmus was one of the most scrutinized players in recent memory during his days in St. Louis. Fans did not understand the kid's laid back attitude and balked at his perceived laziness in centerfield.
Now that he is a member of the Toronto Blue Jays, Rasmus is evidently doing his best to ingrain himself in Canadian culture. The...

Former St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Kyle Lohse is still looking for a new home. It has been a long winter for the free agent, who was planning on cashing in big after a second consecutive spectacular season. Unfortunately, Lohse has been unable to land anywhere, which is strange considering his former teammate Kyle McClellan, who is coming off of shoulder surgery, found...
The Texas Rangers have signed right-hander Kyle McClellan to a minor league contract with an invitation to major league spring training.
McClellan, who pitched the last five seasons for St. Louis, had surgery on his right elbow and shoulder July 10. He is already throwing and expected to ready for the start of spring training. He went on the disabled list May 18 and waived by the...
Hot News for RP Kyle McClellan
Former St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Kyle Lohse has yet to receive
an official offer from a club this winter after a career year in 2012. The
34-year-old is by the far the best arm available but still has yet to field an
offer most likely because he has a compensation pick tied to him since he
