Every Monday, John Nagel of CardinalsFarm.com will provide StlSportsMinute.com with a St. Louis Cardinals Weekly Farm report. This will name a player and pitcher of the week in the Cardinals' farm system and will also run through each team and talk about players who have had good weeks, bad weeks, and also player movement.  Week 3 covers games from May 6th to May 12th Player of the Week: Ryan Jackson - 11-26, 6 R, 5 2B, 1 HR, 5 RBI Pitcher of the Week: Kyle Helisek - 2-0, 2.45 ERA, 11 IP, 10 K Memphis Redbirds (AAA) The Redbirds finished the week with a 4-3 record. The Redbirds lost another starter to the major leagues as John Gast was promoted to St. Louis on Sunday. Ryan Jackson, our player of the week, continues to shine. I believe the Cardinals are missing a great opportunity with Jackson at Triple-A. How about Victor Marte? In his last 10 appearances, he has a 0.00 ERA, 14 K, and 6 saves. After a rough start, Marte's ERA is down to 2.08 on the year. So, who is the...

Shelby Miller quickly becoming another ace for the Cardinals

Although I live in the Chicago area and rarely get to see the Cardinals play live, you do not have to watch a game to know when a pitcher utterly dominates a team, which is just what Shelby Miller did on Friday night. Against a pretty good hitting Rockies team (2nd in the NL in runs scored), Miller gave up a leadoff hit in the first, then proceeded to retire the next 27 batters...

St. Louis Cardinals Recall Pitcher John Gast From Memphis

He takes the active roster spot of Jake Westbrook who was placed on the 15-day disabled list this past weeked due to inflammation in his right elbow.

Freese quietly getting offense back on track

ST. LOUIS Twice, David Freese had departed the batter's box with his head down. His first attempt had ended with a baseball landing in a right fielder's glove. His second with a swing and a miss. By his third try, he was due. The St. Louis Cardinals' third baseman hit a Jorge De La Rosa pitch hard toward first, a scorched grounder that found the Busch Stadium grass...

Gast stays cool under pressure in Major League debut

ST. LOUIS If you expected the rookie to show something, anything, you just don't know him very well. "That's the kind of guy he is," Cardinals infielder Matt Carpenter said. "We've had some experience with him at Spring Training. And just kind of getting to know him personally I mean, he's a very cool, calm, collected kind of guy." So cool...

St. Louis Cardinals: Why Trevor Rosenthal is the most important piece in the Cardinals bullpen

St. Louis Cardinals reliever Trevor Rosenthal recorded two outs in the eighth inning of team's 6-3 win over the New York Mets on Monday night to pick up his 10th hold of the season. It was the first time Rosenthal had pitched since last Wednesday, thanks to some outstanding pitching from the Cardinals starting rotation and the right-hander picked up right where he left off by...

Joe Kelly would be better choice to start during Jake Westbrook absence

The St. Louis Cardinals suffered the first crack in their best-in-baseball starting rotation Sunday when they placed Jake Westbrook on the 15-day disabled list with elbow inflammation. The team decided to give Westrbook’s start to rookie John Gast, but they might have been better off to let a more experienced pitcher fill that role. Joe Kelly made his Major League Baseball debut...

Quick Hits From The Weekend

Lots to cover today... let's do some quick hits:  1) This weekend was poised to be one of the most dominant sweeps in St. Louis Cardinals history (more on that in a minute), but turned into the second most gruesome day of the season (Opening Day fiasco being #1). Jamie Garcia didn't bear down when he needed and got tagged for 5 runs. Carlos Martinez had his first real...

Fantasy Baseball, Week 7 PCL Updates: Michael Wacha, Nick Franklin, Michael Choice

  Michael Wacha (P – Memphis Redbirds) The Cardinals have one of the greatest problems in baseball to have… too much good, young pitching. Among them are Miller, Rosenthal, Martinez, Jenkins and Wacha. Michael Wacha was the Cardinals first overall pick in the 2012 MLB Draft (19th overall) and has been pushed aggressively through their system since. Used mostly in relief in...

De La Rosa dominates, Rockies beat Cardinals 8-2

ST. LOUIS (AP) Jorge De La Rosa held the St. Louis Cardinals hitless into the seventh inning and Troy Tulowitzki's three-run homer ended Colorado's scoreless streak at 28 innings, sending the Rockies to an 8-2 victory Sunday. De La Rosa did not allow a hit until David Freese's two-out single in the seventh, answering a pair of pitching gems by St. Louis over the weekend...

Fast-start Redbird to replace fast-start Card

John Gast is being called up to St. Louis to replace injured starter Jake Westbrook Tuesday night.

Cardinals/Rockies: Three things to walk with

The last thing that you’d think would rule a weekend between the St. Louis Cardinals and Colorado Rockies would be pitching. But not only was that the case, it was a historical level of pitching effectiveness. Between Shelby Miller, Adam Wainwright and Jorge De La Rosa, 21 complete hitless innings were tossed, and in the two of the starts, no-hitters were far from speculative;...

2013 Fantasy Baseball Rookie Report, Week 7: Miller vs. Ryu for Rookie of the Year

Two clear front-runners for the National League Rookie of the Year award have emerged through the first quarter of the season, St. Louis’s Shelby Miller and the Dodgers’ Hyun-Jin Ryu. Both started the season well. Ryu has had a couple rough outings and bounced back from them, and Miller has been dominant in every start except two where he failed to get out of the sixth inning...

Lynn overcomes early control woes to lead Cards past Mets

ST. LOUIS (AP) Lance Lynn overcame early control woes and St. Louis used a three-run seventh inning to beat the New York Mets 6-3 on Monday night. Lynn (6-1) allowed three runs on three hits and four walks the first two innings. He only gave up one hit and one walk in his last five innings. He is 4-0 at home this season.
