Cardinals' Kevin Siegrist: Throws 25 pitches in first bullpen sesson
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Siegrist (shoulder) threw his first bullpen session of spring Wednesday, Glenn Sattell of MLB.com reports. "It was good," said Siegrist, who threw about 25 pitches. "Everything was fine. [I threw] all fastballs and changeups. No pain, nothing like that. Now it's just all about building back up to get ready to throw in games. I feel good so far."

Saddled with some shoulder tightness last week that had prompted him to cancel his scheduled pitching sessions, Siegrist had moved up to playing catch on a couple of different occasions since Friday. Having experienced no setbacks, he finally threw his first bullpen of spring Wednesday, and reported that he was able to do so without restriction or discomfort. The Cardinals' projected setup man in 2017, Siegrist will evaluate how he feels Thursday before making firm plans to embark on a normal schedule of bullpen and batting practice sessions.

Cardinals' Austin Gomber: To see action in Grapefruit League opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomber is slated to see action in Saturday's Grapefuit League opener against the Marlins, Glenn Sattell of MLB.com reports.

The southpaw, who was the Cardinals' 2015 Minor League Pitcher of the Year, will get an early opportunity to start building on his impressive 2016 campaign in High-A Palm Beach and Double-A Springfield, as well as his solid Arizona Fall League stint. Gomber carries some intrigue this spring, considering the Cardinals' prospective starting rotation is exclusively composed of right-handers. The 23-year-old is slated to follow starter Luke Weaver and John Gant on Saturday and will likely work at least two frames.

Cardinals' John Gant: To see action in Grapefruit League opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gant, acquired from the Braves on Dec. 1, will follow starter Luke Weaver in Saturday's Grapefuit League opener against the Marlins, Glenn Sattell of MLB.com reports.

The 24-year-old right-hander has been solid in workouts so far, and brings impressive size (6-foot-5), a three-pitch arsenal, and unique delivery. Gant is likely to receive at least two frames to showcase his skills Saturday and will likely be followed by non-roster invitee Austin Gomber.

Cardinals' Luke Weaver: Named starter for Grapefruit League opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver has been named the starter for Saturday's Grapefruit League opener against the Marlins, Glenn Sattell of MLB.com reports.

Weaver, competing for the fifth starter job, will thus get first crack at making an impression against live competition this spring. The 23-year-old righty, who went 1-4 with a 5.70 ERA over his first 36.1 major league innings in 2016, will likely work just two frames Saturday and will be followed by John Gant and non-roster invitee Austin Gomber.

Cardinals' Sandy Alcantara: Opening eyes in early workouts
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Alcantara, a non-roster invitee to spring training and promising prospect, has made impressive physical strides over the last year, Jose de Jesus Oritz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. "He's a specimen," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. "This guy is impressive in how he's developed over the last year. A year ago you just saw a very thin (player who) just still looked kind of like a kid. He looks like a man who has taken the next step. Watching his athleticism, watching the way he moves, watching how he handles just his disposition and his mound disposition as well, there's a lot of things that he's improved on over the last year."

Alcantara firmly remains a developmental project after compiling a 5-11 record over 23 starts between Low-A Peoria and High-A Palm Beach in 2016, but has undeniably eye-opening stuff. The 21-year-old boasts a 100-mph fastball, a changeup that tops out at about 90 mph, a sharp-breaking curve and an effective sinker. That arsenal helped produce 153 whiffs over 122.2 innings last season, although Alcantara offset those impressive numbers with 59 walks, an area in which he clearly has room for improvement. Given his skill set and potential, Alcantara will be one of the more intriguing non-roster invitees to monitor in Cardinals' camp, and could well start the 2017 campaign at the Double-A level with a strong spring training effort.
