Cardinals RHP Carlos Villanueva continues fine bullpen work
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Cardinals pitcher Carlos Villanueva was a savior for manager Mike Matheny on Saturday against the Tigers. After starter Tyler Lyons was lifted with two outs in the fourth inning, Villanueva did all he could to keep his team in the game.

He pitched 3 1/3 scoreless innings, allowing four hits and one walk. He also struck out a pair.

"Somebody is going to have to pay, and it's the rest of our bullpen that is paying when we can't get our starters very deep in the game," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said to MLB.com. "It's got to change. We have to figure out how to get it done."

The right-hander has thrived in his role as a swingman/long reliever this season. He currently boasts a 0.50 ERA over 10 appearences. It remains to be seen if Villanueva will be moved into the rotation at some point this season.

Cardinals' Carlos Villanueva comes out of pen to win third game
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Cardinals reliever Carlos Villanueva moved to 3-1 on the season, coming out of the bullpen to earn the victory in an 11-inning win over Pittsburgh. 

Villanueva pitched a scoreless eleventh, allowing a hit and a walk, while striking out one. He lowered his ERA to 0.87 with the 18 pitch, 10 strike outing. 

"It's good to come out on the positive side," Villanueva said. "What we have to do is try to keep the game as it is when we come in, and we did a good job of that. I know we had a lot of traffic out there, but what matter is that that traffic doesn't advance. Keep bringing the boys back in the dugout and give them a chance to do what they did again today."

Cardinals' Villanueva 'staying ready' despite infrequent use
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cardinals pitcher Carlos Villanueva is filling a long-relief role for the team this season, causing him to be used infrequently, but he doesn't see an issue with the role and says he's been "staying ready" between appearances, MLB.com reports.

"I've done it before and that's what I'm here for," Villanueva said of the infrequent use. "I don't see it as being a factor. I've stayed ready in between. I've thrown my sides. It's something that I have to deal with and keep myself ready for situations like [Tuesday]."

Villanueva made his second appearance of the season Tuesday, giving up a walkoff home run to take the loss. He figures to see more action as the team gets involved in more blowouts, as the Cardinals have seen just two of their games decided by more than three runs.

"Games look a little different, he's going to get opportunities to pitch," manager Mike Matheny said. "It just hasn't worked out that way. I know he's not looking for excuses. He wants to throw. I get it. But he serves a very important purpose for us down there so we can pitch the guys [in the bullpen] like we're pitching them. He's the safety valve on the back end."

Cardinals add Carlos Villanueva, place Jaime Garcia on DL
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Cardinals have purchased the contract of pitcher Carlos Villanueva and placed pitcher Jaime Garcia on the 15-day disabled list with a left shoulder injury, the team announced Monday.

Garcia had been delivering an great performance this spring, posting a 3.86 ERA and 13:3 K:BB ratio in 9 1/3 innings, but suffered a setback in the last few days. He said Sunday he has been dealing with fatigue and soreness. Garcia will likely pitch in extended spring training in preparation for his late start to the regular season.

Garcia was in the mix to serve as the team's fifth starter before his setback, but that role will likely fall to either Carlos Martinez or Marco Gonzales.

Villanueva has surrendered six earned runs in 11 innings while striking out 11 batters and walking two this spring.
