Thanks to a recent surge, the St. Louis Cardinals are in position for the first wild card spot. They sit in second place in the National League Central, 2.5 games behind the Milwaukee Brewers.

Cardinals' big investment in Peralta is paying off both at plate and in field

ST. LOUIS -- If Stephen Drew batted right-handed, the Cardinals' shortstop this season probably would not be Jhonny Peralta. Because the Cardinals' preference to land a right-handed-hitting shortstop was so strong, they opted for Peralta and his PED issue (he served a 50-game MLB suspension last season) over the lefty-hitting Drew who, besides giving them another lefty hitter...

Early Returns On Jhonny Peralta Not Favorable For Cardinals

The St. Louis Cardinals took a bit of a risk when they signed shortstop Jhonny Peralta to a four-year $53 million deal in the 2013 off-season since he was coming off a season in which he was suspended 50 games for testing positive for performance enhancing drugs. The Cardinals hoped they were getting the Peralta that had hit more than 20 home runs on four occasions and topped 80...

Jhonny Peralta faces a lot of pressure as St. Louis Cardinals starting shortstop

The St. Louis Cardinals solidified their largest trouble spot from the 2013 season Nov. 24 when they signed veteran free-agent shortstop Jhonny Peralta to a four-year, $53-million contract.  Peralta will also probably face pressure unlike any he has experienced in his 11-year career.

Peralta, 31, was seen as one of the offseason’s best options for teams looking for a durable, consistent offensive-minded shortstop, though he comes with the added baggage of the 50-game PED suspension he served in 2013. Peralta joins fellow offenders Marlon Byrd and...
