Depending on the severity of this injury, Gomber or Cabrera may make the team as relievers.March 11, 2020 at 4:03 pm #124529mudvilleParticipantPaid - Annual
This is the kind of injury that could take a pitcher three months to come back from. At least we won’t have to worry about Cecil ruining the season by single-handedly pissing away several games.March 11, 2020 at 4:08 pm #124531bccranParticipantPaid - Annual
Cecil is one of the worst signings in the long term history of the Cardinals. He and Fowler probably the two worst in my recollection, and I’ve been following this Cardinals since the early 1950s.March 11, 2020 at 4:40 pm #124533
Why do I have the feeling Cecil will be on the IL most if not all season? Probably nothing more than bad luck for him but also convenient for the team in that they don’t have to make a tough judgement call.March 11, 2020 at 4:47 pm #124536thejagerParticipantPaid - Annual
if it is really bad we can 60day DL him…which would open up another 40man spot…one for Whitley and one eventually for Carlson….
wait…do we already have 2 with Munoz gone? so this would be 3?March 11, 2020 at 5:04 pm #124539jj-cf-stlParticipantPaid - Annual
GS, I don’t know if they have insurance on Cecils contract or not, but if they do, the IL is their best shot at reclaiming $. If knowing salary is due to be repaid, wouldn’t that help the deadline funds?March 11, 2020 at 5:29 pm #1245431982 willieParticipantFree
well doesn’t surprise me and it really doesn’t bother me. With all these injuries, this isn’t looking good for the season though it seems like commonplace now.March 11, 2020 at 6:28 pm #124547

Well, a season-ending hamstring injury in March would be rare. We aren’t talking about his arm here.
Cecil has been fine this spring. Three of four outings scoreless plus today he struck out his first batter before being injured. My money says he would have been on the roster if it would have had to be set this morning.March 11, 2020 at 6:31 pm #124548

No. The 40-man roster was full before Munoz was released. (The Roster Matrix can be a resource to quickly check.)March 14, 2020 at 11:11 pm #124765858booyahParticipantFree

JJ, in theory that is true but I can’t remember the last time we did anything significant at the deadline.March 15, 2020 at 11:48 am #124771stlcard25ParticipantPaid - Annual

John Lackey/Allen Craig trade??March 15, 2020 at 1:21 pm #124772jj-cf-stlParticipantPaid - Annual
Voit for Gallegos too, but overall GS is correct about a lack of a significant acquisition in recent seasons.
When we missed the postseason for three seasons, players like Cabrera, Ramirez, Williams and O’Neill were all part of deadline deals knowing their value would be future. Hopefully we will be in a position to warrant a significant acquisition, with immediate impact, at deadlines going forward.March 15, 2020 at 1:29 pm #124774
I would hope so but I am under the impression that the Cardinals have married themselves to their self imposed payroll restrictions for the next two seasons, therefore, I am not expecting many moves at all, if any.July 22, 2020 at 2:27 pm #133289
We have placed INF Brad Miller on the 10-day Injured List (right ankle – bursitis).
Additionally, the club has released LHP Brett Cecil.

This frees up a 40-man roster spot, which makes it conceivable for both Oviedo and Whitley to be added to the 40-man and for there still to be room for Carlson soon, as well.
I am not sure they will do that, though… We should see hopefully tonight when the roster is announced.July 22, 2020 at 2:44 pm #133295stlcard25ParticipantPaid - Annual
And just like that, the Brett Cecil era is over. His first year with the team was better than people thought, but it was all downhill after. His signing was lauded as a good one by the talking heads back in the day.July 22, 2020 at 2:49 pm #133297
Well what is left to say about Cecil? It was a painful mistake and I am sure everyone is glad it is finally over with, although I guess the team will stay have to pay him through September 27.

After seeing him pitch a few times in his first year with the Cardinals i wondered what in blue blazes did anybody see in this guy?
He was terrible!!!!!

They let it play out as long as they could, but this was the time to make the decision. They can’t afford for him to try to learn his new throwing motion during games that count. The money is sunk either way, but the roster spot can be better used.
