PETE KOZMA RUMORS & GOSSIP

St. Louis Cardinals trade rumors: Pete Kozma edition

It appears that Pete Kozma’s time with the St. Louis Cardinals is coming to an end. Once known for helping the Cards in their 2012 and 2013 postseason runs, Kozma looks on the outs with the ball club. Kozma was recently called up from Triple-A affiliate Memphis Redbirds in order to add infielder depth to the roster. After the never ending injuries at the pitching position, Kozma...

Cardinals fill roster spots with Kozma and Fornataro

ST. LOUIS -- After promoting shortstop Pete Kozma and right-hander Eric Fornataro on Monday morning, the Cardinals have called up four players from Memphis in the past eight days. That none of them has been Oscar Taveras, Randal Grichuk or Stephen Piscotty cannot be a real positive development. It's not, of course. The promotions are the result of injuries that have caught up...

The Case For Pete Kozma

A couple of weeks ago, in my first quarterly report, I mentioned Pete Kozma and practically declared his career in a Cardinal uniform over. He was hitting below .200 in Memphis at the time. But since then Kozma has managed to turn things around (hitting .429 last 10 games) and I have had a change in heart. Last month, Corey Rudd wrote an article comparing Daniel Descalso to Ty...

Kozma's day of reckoning is fast approaching, and he knows it

JUPITER, Fla. -- Sometime Friday night, possibly after the Cardinals have finished their exhibition game against the Memphis Redbirds, manager Mike Matheny figures to call shortstop Pete Kozma into his office. Their meeting will be one that both have seen coming since the Cardinals signed Jhonny Peralta four months ago, but anticipation doesn't figure to make it any easier. Telling...

Pete Kozma could be odd-man out for 2014 St. Louis Cardinals

St. Louis Cardinals shortstop Pete Kozma has had as much of a rollercoaster ride of a career as any Cardinals player without injury in recent memory, but he could be headed toward another valley in 2014 after two years at the top of the ride. The Cardinals drafted Kozma out of Owasso High School in Owasso, Okla., with the 18th overall pick of the 2007 draft. Kozma was 19 years old...

McNeal: What's next for Pete Kozma and the Cardinals?

ST. LOUIS -- Just one month after helping his club win Game 2 of the World Series, shortstop Pete Kozma had become persona non grata on the Cardinals. Hey, that can happen when you post the lowest OPS in the National League over the past 23 seasons (minimum of 140 games played), no matter how slick your glove. The Cardinals gave Kozma a season to show he could hit big-league pitching...

What should the St. Louis Cardinals do at shortstop?

The 2013 St. Louis Cardinals were a complete team, with quality contributions coming from all areas, culminating in a division crown and a trip to the World Series.  The Cards had very few weaknesses, but the most glaring of which was the shortstop position.  The offensive production from Pete Kozma and Daniel Descalso was anemic and their defense was not enough to make up for...

Here are nine potential shortstops Cards could pursue to replace Kozma

ST. LOUIS -- The Cardinals haven't changed the way they look at the shortstop position. They still consider defense the priority at the position. Still, they'd like a little bit of offense. Pete Kozma didn't even give them that over the last four months of the regular season and the playoffs. After a solid April and May, Kozma declined into one of baseball's least...

St. Louis Cardinals’ Pete Kozma Is Great

What?! you say, how could a shortstop with a .217/.275/.273 batting line and one home run possibly be anything less than terrible? Pete Kozma possesses a wRC+ of 50. Six pitchers managed a better mark than that. He compiled 0.0 WAR, there must be thirty guys that played for the St. Louis Cardinals in 2013 that fared better. Well, if you’re letting WAR or those other sabermetrics...
