    This decision seems a bad idea. 3 free roster spots seems to be enough. Kind of surprised Quezada survived being outrighted. He has potential, but had a poor 2021.

    Rondon was a decent bench bat but his glove was a little rough. He is replaceable.

    He is kind of pointless if you have Edman, Sosa, and DeJong all healthy.

    I think this means they just like Anderson Tejeda better really. With the potential DH coming, you should only have one MI bench guy.

    Rondon accumulated 90 PA’s during 2021, 56 vs RHP’s and 34 vs LHP’s.

    Rondons’ 25 OPS+ from last season vs righties, may be an example of the FO’s stated goal to improve vs RHP’s, next season.

    Similar thoughts on Rondon. I liked what I saw of him in limited appearances, but not sure he would get much of a shot here. I just don’t want to see him on the Cubs going all “Patrick Wisdom” on us.

    Well looks like we have some clues on why he wasn’t tendered despite his success last season

    So I guess Jose Rondon was caught cheating and got an 80-day suspension. They should have mentioned it during the post game somewhere or maybe they did when I’d gone to the head, I don’t know. I don’t think the Cardinals should ignore this sort of news in hopes none of the fans find out about it.

    In the book ‘Baseball Cop’ the author says that 20-30% of players are still using.
