A fine question. I was told that MiLB (which is really MLB) is allowing leniency on minor league rosters this year.
There are six first place teams in MLB (obviously). 17 of the remaining 24 MLB teams are farther out of first place currently than the Cardinals (four games).
Seasons have ebbs and flows. This is clearly a down time. But some seem to think it will continue. IMO, the real Cardinals are somewhere between how they have played this month and the club that had one of the best records in MLB as recently as last month.
They already cut bait on Victor Garcia. Machado could be next.June 19, 2021 at 2:24 pm in reply to: 2021 Cards MLB Game 71 thread – Sat, June 19 at Braves – to Sun, June 20 G1 #164379

Agreed. Lots of new players. Should be fun to follow.
Pimentel was on the last line and accidentally deleted. He is back now. Thanks for bringing it up.
I have started to look at re-ranking and specifically pulled up Plummer. After the hot May, he has returned to his career norms.
June to date: .204/.316/.324/.640
Before the accusations return, I am not taking delight in this. I am simply reporting fact. So far, I am glad I did not return him to the Top 50.
I think it is great that fans pick their personal player favorites, but that is not my approach. And I am always happy to answer reasonable questions, so the snark is unnecessary.
Robertson is still shown as a shortstop. While his use in the first six weeks of the season has been at second base, he was primarily a SS until 2021. I am in no hurry to start moving people around based on shorter-term usage. I suppose I could label him a utility player and leave it at that.
Thanks for the heads up. The mess has been corrected.
I don’t want to misrepresent the situation. A completed building does not mean it is fully operational. I will ask around about that.
With COVID, back field access to the Jupiter facility was cut off since I was last there early last year. At that time, the Cardinals were completing construction on a new set of state of the art batting cages for the minor leaguers along with the aforementioned pitching lab at the far end of the new building pictured. I reported on this for subscribers during the last instructional camp, held in January 2020, but do not have an update on how it has been utilized since. In a general sense, COVID led to staffing and expense reductions across player development – and the entire organization.
FWIW, I am aware of the need to coordinate with the Marlins on the proposed $100+ million upgrades to the Roger Dean complex, but I had not heard anything about the pitching lab being tied up in that – and I would be skeptical about that rumor without substantiation.
Memphis (15-24) won three straight games over the weekend to tie the home series with Gwinnett, but lost their first three at Indianapolis to start this week. RHR Connor Jones earned two wins this week and allowed only one hit over 4 1/3 innings. ($) https://t.co/FIgeuLb9JO pic.twitter.com/EhxmDXwKex

Springfield earned its first series win but went 2-4 for the period, with the season record 12-25. #stlcards no 1 prospect Nolan Gorman (per TCN) has come alive at the plate, highlighted by his June 12th performance in which he hit three home runs.
