  • Cardinals' Ryan Meisinger: Scooped by Cardinals

    Meisinger was claimed off waivers by the Cardinals on Monday.

    Meisinger made his major-league debut with the Orioles in 2018, posting a 6.43 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 21:10 K:BB across 21 innings. He also spent time with Double-A Bowie and Triple-A Norfolk, notching a 4.42 ERA across 18.1 innings with the Baysox while compiling a 2.28 ERA and 11.7 K/9 across 27.2 innings with the Tides. The 24-year-old will likely serve as organizational bullpen depth in 2019.

  • Cardinals' Marcell Ozuna: Expects to be cleared by January

    Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said Thursday that Ozuna (shoulder) should receive full clearance for baseball activities at some point in January, Fox Sports Midwest reports.

    Ozuna was bothered by his right shoulder for a good portion of his inaugural campaign in St. Louis, but still finished the season on the field, delivering a .280 average, 23 home runs, 88 RBI and 69 RBI across 148 games. After undergoing surgery Oct. 30 to address the injury, Ozuna appears to be tracking well in his recovery and should be back to 100 percent health well before spring training. If the surgery provides a permanent fix for his shoulder woes, Ozuna shouldn't have much difficulty upping his power production in 2019.

  • Cardinals' Yadier Molina: Set for minor procedure

    Molina will undergo a minor knee procedure sometime this upcoming week, Brian Stull of St. Louis Baseball Weekly reports.

    Cardinals President of Baseball Operations John Mozeliak indicated that Molina's surgery will be a "very small procedure" and he anticipates the catcher will be sidelined for just a few days, so there doesn't appear to be any concern over his status moving forward. The procedure will take place in St. Louis by team doctors.

  • Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Headed to St. Louis

    The Diamondbacks traded Goldschmidt to the Cardinals on Wednesday in exchange for Luke Weaver, Carson Kelly, Andrew Young and a 2019 Competitive Balance Round B draft pick, Jon Heyman of reports.

    Talks between the two clubs quickly escalated Wednesday afternoon, and a deal has been struck to send the perennial All-Star to St. Louis. Goldschmidt will immediately provide a strong middle-of-the-order bat to the Cardinals after slashing .290/.389/.533 with 33 home runs and 83 RBI last season, which is all the more impressive considering he was barely above the Mendoza Line at the end of May.

  • Cardinals' Chasen Shreve: Comes to terms with Cardinals

    Shreve signed a one-year deal with St. Louis on Friday to avoid arbitration.

    Shreve finished the 2018 campaign with a 3.93 ERA and 1.52 WHIP across 52.2 innings split between the Yankees and Cardinals. The left-hander will likely remain in a middle-inning spot while also matching up with left-handed hitters out of the bullpen this upcoming season.

  • Cardinals' Chris Beck: Signs with Cardinals

    Beck agreed to a minor-league contract with St. Louis on Friday, Jenifer Langosch of reports.

    Beck will provide additional relief depth within the Cardinals' organization after appearing in 20 big-league games this past season split between the Mets and White Sox. He logged a 4.50 ERA and 1.59 WHIP with a poor 21:20 K:BB across 34 innings.

  • Cardinals' Martin Figueroa: Latches on with Cardinals

    Figueroa was signed by St. Louis on Wednesday, Mark Saxon of The Athletic reports.

    Figueroa spent the 2018 season with the Sussex County Miners in the Canadian American Association of Professional Baseball. The soon-to-be 23-year-old played in 96 games, slashing .328/.444/.481 with five home runs, 50 RBI and 20 stolen bases. Though the Cardinals may view him as a catching prospect, he made 67 starts for Sussex County at the hot corner, and can also man first base if needed.

  • Cardinals' Derian Gonzalez: Sent to Triple-A

    Gonzalez was outrighted to Triple-A Memphis on Monday.

    Gonzalez, who was designated for assignment last week, will stick in the Cardinals' organization after passing through waivers unclaimed and subsequently accepting his assignment to Memphis. The 23-year-old righty spent time across three levels in 2018, posting a combined 3.51 ERA and 1.35 WHIP across 33.1 innings. In his first taste of Triple-A, Gonzalez compiled a 5.91 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 12 strikeouts across 10.2 innings.

  • Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Preparing for spring as starter

    Reyes (lat) is preparing for spring training as a starter, the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports.

    The Cardinals are going to manage Reyes' workload carefully in 2019, regardless of what his role shapes up to be. Injuries limited him to just 27 innings in 2018, and considering that he lost all of 2017 recovering from Tommy John surgery, it's not unreasonable to think that Reyes may spend some portion of the season in the bullpen. In any case, the Cardinals will likely ensure that Reyes is completely healthy when spring training begins before his role is written in anything more than pencil, and regardless of where he begins the season, expecting anything close to a typical starter's workload for him is overzealous.

  • Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Added to 40-man roster

    Cabrera's contract was selected by the Cardinals on Tuesday.

    St. Louis protected Cabrera from the Rule 5 draft by placing him on the 40-man roster. The 22-year-old lefty spent the majority of his 2018 season with the Rays' Double-A Montgomery affiliate before being traded to the Cardinals just prior to the July deadline. He accrued a 4.27 ERA with 145 punchouts over 137 innings at Double-A last season.

  • Cardinals' Lane Thomas: Added to 40-man roster

    Thomas had his contract purchased from Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday.

    The Cardinals added Thomas to their 40-man roster in order to protect the 23-year-old from the upcoming Rule 5 draft. He spent most of the 2018 season with Double-A Springfield, slashing .260/.337/.487 with 21 homers and 13 steals across 100 games before earning a promotion to Memphis. He hit .275/.321/.496 with six homers and four stolen bases in 32 games the rest of the season with the Redbirds. Thomas could make his way to the majors in 2019, though it would likely take multiple injuries for him to land in a significant role.
