The St. Louis Cardinals may be approaching a 40-man roster logjam as top prospects are ready for the major leagues.

The Shelby Miller lists

As pretty much the entire baseball world knows by now, on Friday night, St. Louis Cardinals rookie right-hander Shelby Miller allowed a leadoff broken bat single before retiring the next 27 Colorado Rockies in order. I asked researcher Tom Orf to help put this almost-perfect game into perspective. St. Louis Cardinals, 0 walks, 13+ strikeouts Pitcher Date Tm Opp...

St. Louis Cardinals: Chris Carpenters throws 70 pitch bullpen session and reveals curly hair

Within the last week, St. Louis Cardinals 38-year old disabled ace Chris Carpenter revealed to Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he hoped to make one last rehab attempt and return to the Cardinals as a possible member of the beleaguered bullpen. On Friday afternoon at Busch Stadium, Carpenter took a huge step in his bid to once again defy all of the odds and return...

Cardinals place Westbrook on DL

The Cardinals put right-hander Jake Westbrook on the 15-day disabled list with elbow inflammation and plan to select the contract of left-hander John Gast in time for Tuesday night's game against the New York Mets. To make room for Gast on the major league roster, the team said Sunday that injured closer Jason Motte will be moved to the 60-day disabled list while rehabilitating...

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller pitches virtual Perfect Game

Shelby Miller completes the game with 1 hitCredit: Jeff Roberson/AP Twenty-seven up, twenty-seven down. The definition of a perfect game.  Unfortunately, if a leadoff single preceded the 27 outs, the record books won’t record it. Shelby Miller of the St. Louis Cardinals gave up a clean single to Eric Young Jr. (nobody in the crowd even batted an eyelash at the time), then did...

Wainwright leads Cardinals against Colorado at Busch

(AP) -- St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright was off his game the last time out. The right-hander might not need his best stuff given how the Colorado Rockies are struggling at the plate. Wainwright and the Cardinals go for their ninth win in 10 games Saturday when this series continues at Busch Stadium. Looking to rebound from his first defeat of the season, a 2-1 loss to...

Shelby Miller: Ace On The Rise

Shelby Miller continues to dominate, 7 starts into 2013 Friday, May 10th, 2013, that will be a date that some 37,800 St. Louis Cardinals fans at Busch Stadium will remember for quite a while because young, talented Shelby Miller flat out dominated the Colorado Rockies last night. A leadoff single in the top of the first inning to Eric Young Jr. would be the only base runner...

Carpenter’s improbable comeback escalates

On Friday, St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Chris Carpenter threw a 70-pitch assortment, pain-free.

Cardinals beat Rockies 3-0 on Wainwright gem

ST. LOUIS (AP) Adam Wainwright carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning and was one out from the St. Louis Cardinals' second straight one-hitter over the suddenly punchless Colorado Rockies in a 3-0 victory Saturday. The Rockies had been hitless in 49 consecutive at-bats before Nolan Arenado lined a clean hit to center field with one out in the eighth. Eric Young led off Friday...

Cardinals Blogger Day 2013

A couple weeks ago I had the fortune of attending a wonderful event at Busch Stadium thanks to UCB and the Cardinals organization. Even though the Cardinals did not win that day, this was one of the best times I’ve ever had at a baseball game. This is because the assembled bloggers got to have a Q&A with Cardinals President Bill Dewitt III and GM John Mozeliak. I found out...

Yadier Molina throws the bat head at the ball … literally

Well … it worked.

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 3, Rockies 0

Shelby Miller gave up a leadoff single then retired 27 in a row for his first career complete game, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 3-0 victory over the Colorado Rockies. Eric Young Jr. had a line drive hit to right field to start the game for the Rockies but Miller (5-2) gave up nothing else in his first shutout. The right-hander struck out Young to end it with his 13th K...

St. Louis Cardinals: Shelby Miller throw complete game shutout in 3-0 win over Colorado

The St. Louis Cardinals were expecting to see one of the best offensive teams in baseball this season as the Colorado Rockies came into Busch Stadium Friday night with the second most runs scored in all of baseball. Cardinals' rookie starter Shelby Miller didn't care. He carved the Rockies up in a dominating performance in the Cardinals 3-0 win. Miller was absolutely outstanding...

Mets-Cardinals Preview

The pitching matchup seems to heavily favor the St. Louis Cardinals in Monday night's opener of a four-game home set against the New York Mets. The Cardinals have won the last six regular-season home starts by Lance Lynn while the Mets have yet to win when Jeremy Hefner has been on the mound. Making matters worse for New York, Lynn (5-1, 2.72 ERA) has never dropped back-to...
