    I know he’s only been in Peoria a couple of months but you have to move O’Reilly up.
    Game score today? 104! I repeat – 104!

    According to BA, the highest minor league game score in 2016 was 97

    Helsley goes 6 1/3 and gives up 1 hit. Having a rough year, though.
    ERA of 2.79 after having a 1.61
    in 2016 at Peoria over 17 starts. Cards moving the 2015 4th round pick verrrrry slowly.

    He’s given up 66 hits in 84 innings and struck out 79. WHIP of 1.10.

    With Weaver getting sent back to AAA, who do the Cardinals promote after the All Star break? Siegrist doesn’t seem ok with Derek’s report of decreased velocity.

    That doesn’t seem very egregious to me.

    He’s another Rodney Dangerfield in our system.

    My vote for replacing Weaver is Mark Montgomery.

    2016 – Memphis – 45 1/3 IP, 30 H, 9 BB, 53 K, 0.86 WHIP, 2.18 ERA

    This would let Duke get a few more AAA innings and Siegrist get his velocity back.

    Montgomery was once heralded as the next David Robertson when he was in the Yankees organization. He always had control issues there, but seems to have gotten a better grasp on it this year in Memphis. He’s a big slider guy with a 91-92 MPH fastball. His lingering shoulder injuries should give us pause though to ever counting on him long-term (much like Siegrist)

    Interestingly, we only picked him up out of necessity when Rosenthal went down at the beginning of the year and Tuivailala got called up. At that time, we needed someone to fill his bullpen spot in AAA.

    I’d like to see Monty get a shot as well. Seems like as good a time as any.

    Monty was a Rodney Dangerfield in the Yankees system. It would be nice to see him get a chance here.
