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-stlParticipantFree
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

Cecil has hyrdrophobia? Would euthanasia void the insurance?March 15, 2020 at 9:13 am #12476714NyquisTParticipantPaid - Annual

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-stlParticipantFree
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.
