The St. Louis Cardinals reassigned C Tony Cruz, C Luis De La Cruz, 3B David Freese, LHP Brad Furnish, RHP Shaun Garceau, RHP Tyler Herron, C Steven Hill, C Justin Knoedler, LHP Katsuhiko Maekawa, LHP Ian Ostlund, RHP Francisco Samuel and 3B Brett Wallace to minor league camp.
Wallace thrived in his first year in the Cardinals system last year, working his way up to Double-A with a .957 OPS. The organization will obviously need to see more from the 22-year-old before making any long-term plans with him, but he could eventually replace Troy Glaus as the team's starting third baseman. Even though Glaus might not be ready for the start of the season, Wallace won't be considered an option out of spring training after he was sent to minor league camp in early March. Freese is a decent third base prospect, too, but the rest of these guys are nothing more than organizational depth at this point. Ignore them in all Fantasy leagues right now.
