Any idea how a taxi squad will work? Where will they be located?
Will they play games against other taxi squads? Just trying to
get a feel for what it would look like.
36 pitchers used to date….no sign of Ricardo Sanchez. I’m hoping
we get a look at him sometime this spring.
The Cards 4 AFL pitchers have combined for 1 walk and 31K’s in 22 innings.
Edman’s diving stop of Heyward’s grounder may have saved the game. If that ball
gets through it’s 1st and 3rd with one out…probably wouldn’t have gone extra
innings. It was overlooked by the announcers because the tying run scored on the play.
Edman continues to come through with both the bat and the glove!
Is it me or does it seem like there’s less info available from the organization
on injured players compared to prior seasons? I follow the minor leaguers on
a daily basis and at times players just seem to disappear for a period of time
with no explanation. This is not a complaint – just an observation.
The most disappointing aspect of this season to me is the number of injuries
to many of the top prospects. I’m not going to list them…we all know who
I can handle the Cards not having a great season. I’ve been a fan for 50+ years.
I’m more disappointed in the lack of prospect progress – much of it due to injuries.
Alex Reyes Watch – He’s missed two starts now:
6/23 – Last game action
6/28 – First missed start
7/03 – Second missed start
7/08 – Probable third missed start
Originally projected to miss 2 to 3 starts. I haven’t seen
an update since the injury which is concerning. Is he shut down
or is he throwing? The Cards have been quiet about his status.
I was browsing the MiLB website looking for Allen Cordoba’s stats/status. Was quite surprised to see Seth Blair – former Cards first round pick – on the same team as Cordoba. They’re at High A Lake Elsinore in the Padres system. Blair had been out of baseball since 2014. Best of luck to them!
Jhon Torres hasn’t played in almost a week at JC. Came out of
a game on the 21st. His status shows as active. Wondering if
anyone has heard anything.
Alex Reyes left the Memphis game with an injury….didn’t look good.
Any news on Justin Williams? He’s been out for almost a month now.
Still haven’t seen anything regarding his injury.
Looking at Reyes rehab from last May….23 innings no runs, 7 BB and 44 K’s.
A year later – taking a similar path his numbers aren’t very good. Of course
this rehab is from a different injury. I’m hoping it’s just rust. I watched
the game today – velocity was good but he was behind in the count often.
Seems unlikely he’ll be called up soon after today’s performance. Hopefully
Gomber is close to returning.
Any idea what the injury is to Justin Williams?
With Thomas getting called up I’m wondering if Garcia’s stock is dropping some. He didn’t
hit in his brief trial late last year nor in Spring Training this year and hasn’t
had a great start to the regular season at Memphis.
I thought Jody Davis had a familiar ring….he was in the Cards minor league system for a year before the Cubs took him in the Rule 5 draft in Dec of 1980.
Albert played 11 seasons with the Cards resulting in 74 post-season games.
He’s now been with the Angels for 7 seasons and has played in 3 post-season
games – all losses. I’m sure that’s not what he or the Angels expected.
Anxious to see his return to St. Louis next year…can’t imagine how long
that standing O will last! Getting chills just thinking about it!
While it wasn’t a trade – selling Jose Cruz to the Astros for $10K
should be mentioned. He played 13 seasons for the Astros and
ended up with over 2000 hits and 300+ stolen bases.
I wonder about Conner Greene. His control issues haven’t improved since
joining the Cards organization, including his AFL performance thus far.
Will he keep his spot on the 40 man?
Nice to see Rob Kaminsky back on the mound after missing the bulk of the last two seasons.
The Indians are sending him to the AFL. Looks like he’s been pitching out of the bullpen
at AA. Best of luck to him!
Hudson at #2. Pitcher of the Year two years running. I expect him to
be in the rotation for years to come!
Allen Cordoba is playing again after being out for concussion
related issues after a car accident. Off to a slow start with
20 K’s in his first 43 AB’s at High A ball. Best of luck to
