PAT NESHEK RUMORS & GOSSIP

Poll: Which Cardinals bullpen pitcher do you trust the most?

Oh boy, has the St. Louis Cardinals’ bullpen had its ups and downs this year. What seemed like a pretty strong core going into the season, has had to rely heavily on Pat Neshek and Sam Freeman for a good chunk of the season.

Armed with a newly rediscovered fastball, Pat Neshek is turning heads in Jupiter

JUPITER, Fla. -- Cardinals right-hander Pat Neshek looks like the same pitcher who worked for the Oakland A's last year. He's still using that funky sidearm delivery. He's still relieving. He's still throwing a slider that makes him tough on right-handed hitters. But to Neshek, he's not the same pitcher who put up a solid season for the A's in 2013. Not even...

Pat Neshek could have big effect for St. Louis Cardinals bullpen

The St. Louis Cardinals did not give veteran righthanded relief pitcher Pat Neshek a contract that will guarantee him a spot on the Opening Day roster, but he could become a vital, if unlikely, part of the team’s 2014 bullpen. The Cardinals have few needs for a pitching staff stacked with young, talented pitchers, but the under-the-radar minor league contract the organization...

St. Louis Cardinals sign veteran reliever Pat Neshek

Less than a week before pitchers and catchers report to spring training for the 2014 season, the Cardinals have signed veteran relief pitcher Pat Neshek to a minor league deal.  Neshek, 33, is a right-hander with a sidearm delivery that is closer to submarine than traditional overhand.  The Cardinals were due to add a veteran reliever after the departures of Edward Mujica and John...
