Player Notes

  • Gonzales could be option for 2015 bullpen
    Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports that the Cardinals are "expected to heavily consider" Marco Gonzales for a spot in next year's bullpen.

    Advice: Gonzales' future is as a starter, and he'll report to spring training as an option for the starting five. However, he's unlikely to crack the Opening Day rotation given the team's depth, and it sounds like they might prefer using him in relief rather than putting him in the Triple-A rotation.

  • Cardinals projecting Martinez for relief role
    Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak indicated on Monday that Carlos Martinez projects as the team's primary setup man next season.

    Advice: Obviously a lot can happen between now and spring training with the Cards' roster. But while Martinez has loads of upside as a starter, there might not be room for him in the rotation as things currently shake out. "You can see there is a spot for Carlos in that bullpen that looks pretty nice when it fits right," Mozeliak said. "We’ll have him continue to prepare (to start), but there are only so many innings that we have in spring for starters. He’s always been an option, but we do like him in the back end of the bullpen."

  • Michael Wacha to have normal offseason
    Michael Wacha will follow his normal offseason program after an MRI Friday on his right shoulder came back clean.

    Advice: Wacha missed a large chunk of the season with a stress reaction in the shoulder, but the Cardinals were encouraged by how the MRI looked. "Even the doctors were a little surprised on how that looked," general manager John Mozeliak said. It's good news for Wacha heading into the offseason, but he remains a medical red flag for 2015 since it's an issue that can crop up again. Rotoworld.com

  • Cardinals to shop Randy Choate this winter
    Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Cardinals will "look to move" Randy Choate this offseason.

    Advice: General manager John Mozeliak noted Monday that Choate is "fairly one-dimensional," which "makes it difficult for us to use him, particularly during a long season." Choate was again effective versus left-handed batters this season, holding them to a .093/.205/.147 line. He's slated to make $3 million again in 2015, though, so it's doubtful he'll have much trade value. Rotoworld.com

  • Robert Carson re-signed by Dodgers
    Dodgers re-signed LHP Robert Carson to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Carson spent all of this season in the minors, putting up a 5.74 ERA across three levels. He'll give the Dodgers some left-handed bullpen depth on the farm. Rotoworld.com
