CARSON KELLY RUMORS & GOSSIP

Prospecting for Catchers: A look at the catching depth in the St. Louis Cardinals organization

Twice a year, I like to look at the depth of each position in the Cardinals organization. What I like to do is to rank them based on which players have the best chance of having an impactful major league career. This is not about who is closest to the majors, we are looking for MLB impact players. In this case, we are looking for the successor to Yadier Molina. Now, none of these...

Carson Kelly: Looking at a crazy last 12 months and what the future might hold

This past off-season was surely not a typical off-season for Carson Kelly. The Cardinals 2nd round pick in 2012 was coming off of an up and down season that saw him get a look at the Midwest League for the Peoria Chiefs where he struggled in 43 games. He was later sent to Short Season State College where he rebounded. It was after the 2013 season where things shifted in a dramatically...

Carson Kelly gives Peoria their second straight walk-off win, Angel Castro impressive on the mound

Carson Kelly not only threw out three base runners attempting to steal second, but also drove a walk-off single into the left-center gap in the twelfth; Peoria now has back-to-back walk-off wins. Angel Castro was exceptional on the mound for Memphis, garnering his fifth win of the season as Memphis got a shutout victory. Marco Gonzales made his first start for Springfield and received...

Ranking the top 5 third basemen in the St. Louis Cardinals organization

The next position in our series is surprisingly weak in my opinion. I really did not realize how weak third base was until I researched the position. The position was made weaker when Carson Kelly moved to catcher. While Kelly hasn’t caught an official game behind the plate, the Cards feel like he will be able to stay there. I could see the Cardinals addressing the third base position...

Joe Kelly interviews Nelly while dressed as a grandpa

St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Joe Kelly has proven himself this season to be quite the practical jokester. Kelly has photo-bombed nearly the entire Cardinals roster at one point or another this season, but nothing may top what he did with St. Louis based rapper Nelly. Nelly was conducting an interview with Jim Hayes of Fox Sports Midwest prior to Wednesday’s game with the...

On Saturday, the St. Louis Cardinals minor leaguers had another camp day. When the Mets and Marlins face each other, the Cardinals have no one to play other then themselves.
