Lynn given qualifying offer.
Mejia outrighted off 40-man. Assigned to Memphis.
Rosario outrighted off 40-man. Becomes a free agent.November 6, 2017 at 5:49 pm #37334
Surprised Valera and Mayer’s still on 40 man.November 6, 2017 at 6:01 pm #37339
What about Wick and Voit? The roster sits at 35. They may not be done trimming.November 6, 2017 at 6:01 pm #37340
Still time to trade Myers and Valera prior to final 40 ma roster decisions. It may depend on how many slots they can open up via trade. I think Myers will get claimed on waivers and Valera will be a FA if he does clear waivers.November 6, 2017 at 6:03 pm #37341
Is that 35 after they take Reyes and whoever else off the 60 day dl?November 6, 2017 at 6:14 pm #37344
Along with Reyes, the other “whoever” was Rosenthal! 35 is all inclusive and accurate.
As a related aside, I will be posting a new Roster Matrix this week for the off-season.November 6, 2017 at 8:48 pm #37357
My take on today’s announcements.November 6, 2017 at 9:00 pm #37362
I am so glad Rosenthal is gone. He was so inconsistent and erratic. An accident waiting to happen. I do wish him well wherever he ends up and hope he recovers from his TJ surgery.

Were gonna make some moves.
We still have a few days to jettison.
Stanton is coming unless he doesn’t want to.November 7, 2017 at 9:02 am #37374
i was def wrong on the Rosy situation… still i hope he recovers well and has nice career there is no doubt in my mind he will be around for a while
hope we can sneak Rosario and Mejia through to MemphisNovember 7, 2017 at 9:10 am #37375
Agree with Jags on Rosenthal. He is still young enough to come back strong. I wish we could have kept him and seen him through the rehab, and have him on the club in ’19. But it was not something management wanted to take on given the current situation.
While he struggled the last couple of years, he was a solid closer for us. I thought Matheny over-used him at times, including an egregious situation in a game I saw here in Denver back in ’13 I think (might have been ’14), where he was left in for 41 pitches despite a 3 run lead. 41 pitches in Denver is like about 60 anywhere else. It was unnecessary, and we may not have had to use him at all that day, but that is history.November 7, 2017 at 9:57 am #37384
I realize it’s easy to say after the fact but I expected Rosenthal to be released and for the exact reasons as has been already outlined.November 7, 2017 at 10:07 am #37388
Jager, Rosario and Mejia have already passed through waivers, with different resolutions. Check my article linked to above.November 7, 2017 at 10:15 am #37390
Really to bad on Rosey he was a great pitcher for us even if some were to blinded by hate to see it…November 7, 2017 at 10:36 am #37394
Let’s keep the discussion on Rosenthal, not other posters. Thanks.November 7, 2017 at 3:26 pm #37449
There is nothing preventing Rosenthal from coming back to the Cardinals eventually.November 7, 2017 at 4:20 pm #37452
