St Louis Cards News

When Jim Edmonds was traded from his hometown team, the Los Angeles Angels, before the 2000 season, he was disappointed. Little did he know that his destination, St. Louis, was where he'd make his home in retirement, where his children would grow up and where he would play some of the best seasons of his Major League career.
Though the Cardinals are unsure just how long a recovery is ahead for Joe Kelly, who sustained a left hamstring strain on Wednesday and is on the 15-day disabled list, the organization will have to find another fifth starter for at least the next two times through the rotation.
The strain placed on the Cardinals' bullpen after Joe Kelly's early exit on Wednesday prompted the club to add relievers Eric Fornataro and Jorge Rondon prior to Thursday's series opener against the Nationals.
Adam Wainwright went the distance for the first time this season in firing a two-hitter with eight strikeouts to lead the Cardinals in an 8-0 win over the Nationals on Thursday night.
Southpaw Gio Gonzalez is looking to help the Nationals even the series against Michael Wacha and the Cardinals on Friday night at Nationals Park.
The Cardinals placed right-hander Joe Kelly, who has a strained left hamstring, on the 15-day disabled list and optioned right-handed reliever Keith Butler to Triple-A Memphis. The team also announced plans to recall rookie right-handers Eric Fornataro and Jorge Rondon from Memphis in time for Thursday's series opener against the Nationals in Washington.
Joe Kelly exited in the fifth with hamstring tightness, and the Brewers took full advantage.
Perhaps sparked by manager Mike Matheny's decision to remove him from the lineup on Saturday, Jhonny Peralta has since begun to prove himself the offensive upgrade the Cardinals sought during their shortstop search last offseason.
Down at the Cardinals' spring complex in Jupiter, Fla., pitchers Jason Motte and Jaime Garcia continue to make progress in their individual throwing programs.
Fourteen games into the season, manager Mike Matheny admitted to being "extremely surprised" that he has yet to deploy a challenge in this new era of expanded instant replay across Major League Baseball.
A two-time National League batting champion and 1985 NL MVP Award winner, Willie McGee was leading the pack with 33.29 percent of the fan vote in the first released results for the Cardinals Hall of Fame balloting.
For two nights against the Brewers, the lineup choices Cardinals manager Mike Matheny made were absolutely correct, even if the evidence at hand in one case was not what one would call extensive.
For the sixth consecutive year, players and uniformed personnel for every Major League team playing on Tuesday swapped their chosen numbers to wear the one once donned by the man who broke baseball's color barrier. For one night, everyone was No. 42.
Though manager Mike Matheny was effusive with his praise of how Pete Kozma had improved and how professionally he handled two weeks of limited playing time while keeping Mark Ellis' roster spot warm, the 26-year-old shortstop heads to Triple-A with an uncertain future within the Cardinals' organization.
Shelby Miller found his footing, Allen Craig showed continued signs of rediscovering his swing, and Mark Ellis got himself back onto the field as the Cardinals beat the Brewers, 6-1, on Tuesday night.
Following a Triple-A rehab assignment, Mark Ellis found himself thrust into the Cardinals' lineup on Tuesday night. Moving forward, however, he will find himself adapting to a part-time role that he has never before held.
It may be that the 2014 Milwaukee Brewers are considerably better than many people thought. But the Brewers' problem is that the 2014 St. Louis Cardinals could be every bit as good as many people thought.
The Cardinals ended the Brewers' winning streak at nine games on Monday night, sending Milwaukee to a 4-0 loss behind two home runs and Lance Lynn's best start to date in 2014.
Matt Carpenter's night ended earlier than expected on Monday, as the third baseman was ejected in the fifth inning of a 4-0 Cardinals win for arguing a called third strike with home-plate umpire Bob Davidson.
Tony Cruz's role -- to back up the catcher with the most starts since 2005 -- is largely a thankless one. The Cardinals, in essence, hope he sees minimal time on the field, as that's an indication of starter Yadier Molina's status.
Plenty of early-season attention has been paid to Trevor Rosenthal's fastball velocity, which has been a down a tick from his average velocity posted over his first two seasons. However, the Cardinals hardly seemed ready to jump to conclusions after a sample size of six games.
The Cardinals received a positive report from Mark Ellis after he played five innings at second base for Triple-A Memphis on Sunday. He was scheduled to play again for Memphis on Monday, but that game ended up being postponed because of rain.
The Cardinals will celebrate Jackie Robinson Day in Milwaukee on Tuesday. The significance of the day is not lost on the team's players.
Jon Jay hopes he can build on Saturday's performance in the Cardinals' 10-4 win over the Cubs. Jay, whose playing time has been cut so far in 2014 with the arrival of Peter Bourjos, was 1-for-4 at the plate, but his two-run single with the bases loaded in the fourth helped break the game open.
Michael Wacha is sending a special package back home with his parents who are visiting him this weekend, a box full of Wacha bobbleheads.
Matt Carpenter drove in three and scored a run as the Cardinals took the game and the series with a 6-4 win against the Cubs on Sunday afternoon at Busch Stadium.
Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright enjoyed a luxury he had not yet seen in 2014 as he faced the Cubs at Busch Stadium on Saturday -- run support. The Cardinals bats scored early and often, knocking out Cubs starter Carlos Villanueva after three-plus innings, evening the series with a 10-4 rout.
Cubs manager Rick Renteria challenged a call at first base that was overturned in the third inning on Saturday and prevented a St. Louis run from scoring.
Stuck in a prolonged slump to begin his Cardinal career, Jhonny Peralta was out of the Saturday's lineup against the Cubs. Daniel Descalso started at short, batting eighth.
