    Jered Weaver

    Jered Weaver‘s bid for back-to-back no-hitters lasted into the third inning Monday night, when, after a leadoff walk, Minnesota’s Erik Komatsu singled on the 10th pitch of his at-bat. Weaver ended up allowing one run and three hits over six innings in the Angels’ 8-3 victory. Komatsu had two of the hits, his first two…

    Jered Weaver

    So, yeah, it’s probably still a thousand-to-one shot, but in his rematch with the Twins tonight, Jered Weaver would seem to be better set up for back-to-back no-hitters than any pitcher in memory. Here’s how tonight’s Twins lineup has hit right-handers this season: CF Denard Span – .321 SS Brian Dozier – MLB debut (.316…

    St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Komatsu gets ready for batting practice during workouts before a spring training baseball game against the Boston Red Sox in Fort Myers

    Three weeks ago the Twins claimed Clete Thomas off waivers from the Tigers and gave him the fourth outfielder job, sending Ben Revere back to Triple-A for some additional seasoning.

    UPDATE: As expected, the Cardinals activated Craig from the DL.

    Cardinals center fielder Jon Jay was said to be day-to-day after running into the Busch Stadium outfield wall on Thursday afternoon.

    Skip Schumaker

    An MRI exam revealed that Skip Schumaker has a torn right oblique muscle, making it all but certain that he’ll begin the season on the disabled list. Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that the Cardinals won’t have a timetable for his return until getting more information tomorrow, but general manager John…

  7. Running down the rosters: St. Louis Cardinals

    2011 World Series Game 7 - Texas Rangers v St Louis Cardinals

    The World Series champion Cardinals will go it without Albert Pujols, but the additions of Adam Wainwright (back from Tommy John surgery) and Carlos Beltran should sufficiently make up for that. On paper this year’s team looks just as good as the one that won it all. Of course, last year’s winners wouldn’t have sniffed the postseason…
