The St. Louis Cardinals sign Mark Ellis; Are they done?

The St. Louis Cardinals continued their busy offseason by signing veteran second baseman Mark Ellis.  Ellis most recently played with the Dodgers, and he will turn 37 next season, but the Cardinals just want him as insurance at second for young Kolten Wong, who they plan to play regularly in 2014.  Ellis has played 11 seasons in the majors and is seen as a steady player and a good...

St. Louis Cardinals make excellent decision to sign Mark Ellis

The St. Louis Cardinals took care of the vast majority of their offseason needs before the Major League Baseball Winter Meetings last week in Orlando, but one nagging question remained. What if rookie second baseman Kolten Wong, who hit .153 in 32 games for the Cardinals in 2013, is not ready to handle the everyday duties at second base? The Cardinals scrounged what was left of...

Ellis a perfect puzzle piece for the Cardinals

It is difficult to turn to the MLB Depth Charts page for the St. Louis Cardinals and find any holes on the team. While defense might be the only big "if" for the Cardinals, the addition of Mark Ellis will not hurt the defense while solidifying every position on the field. And the fact the Cardinals got Ellis on just a one year deal works perfectly with Kolten Wong being either...

Cardinals pursue one-year contract with veteran 2B Mark Ellis

ST. LOUIS -- Mark Ellis wasn't the best second baseman on the free-agent market, but he sure looks like the best fit for the Cardinals. General manager John Mozeliak was seeking a player with experience who bats right-handed, would fit in an already tight clubhouse, wouldn't cost any trade chips and could handle second, short and third.
