    Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak told KMOX on Sunday that right-hander Jake Westbrook has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation and that prospect John Gast will be called up from Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday to start in Westbrook’s place against the Mets. Westbrook presumably developed the elbow issue in his…

  2. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    May 3, 2013, 6:42 AM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals v Milwaukee Brewers

    Cardinals 6, Brewers 5: Jake Westbrook with career win 100. And get this: dude allowed only one run in six innings and his ERA increased. Which, yes, will happen when you come in at 0.98. It’s now an unsightly 1.10. He talked after the game how 100 was a goal for him. And while, no,…

  4. Cardinals-Pirates get rained out in second inning

    Apr 16, 2013, 10:15 PM EDT

    St Louis Cardinals v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Just as the Pirates got something going offensively, the rains came and washed it all away. The Pirates were up 4-2 after two innings when Tuesday’s tilt with the Cardinals was called off. All of the runs had scored off Jake Westbrook, who was coming off a shutout of the Reds on April 10. Erased…

  5. Cardinals now embracing elevation

    Apr 14, 2013, 11:15 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v St. Louis Cardinals

    The Cardinals have, for a while, been known as the ground ball team. Many a pitcher has joined the pitching staff, told to induce grounders, and enjoyed immense success as a result. Joel Pineiro is one example; Jake Westbrook and Jaime Garcia others. Since 2009, the Cardinals have ranked second, first, first, and and third…

  6. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Arizona Diamondbacks

    I spent the evening seeing a preview showing of the Jackie Robinson movie, “42,” — review coming later today — so I didn’t get to watch really any baseball. Kinda glad I didn’t too. After seeing and thinking about Robinson I would have probably just thrown something at my TV if I had to watch…

  7. Jake Westbrook pitches first shutout since 2006

    Apr 10, 2013, 6:00 PM EDT

    Jake Westbrook

    Cardinals sinkerballer Jake Westbrook recorded just the second complete game of the 2013 season Wednesday in a 10-0 rout of the Reds. It was his fourth career shutout. Westbrook pitched a five-hitter for his first shutout since 2006. He had two that year while pitching for the Indians: one against the Royals, the other against…

  8. 2013 Preview: St. Louis Cardinals

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2013 season. Up next: The St. Louis Cardinals. The Big Question: Can the Cards keep rolling? The Cardinals have made the playoffs nine times…

  9. Report: Cardinals interested in Lucas Harrell and Bud Norris

    Now that Rafael Furcal is done for the season following Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery, it’s not surprising to hear that the Cardinals are asking around about shortstops. But this report from MLB Network’s Peter Gammons indicates that they are also in the market for a starting pitcher. Cards are asking about a SS as…

  10. Cardinals’ lack of action could be their undoing

    Feb 21, 2013, 11:59 PM EDT

    Mike Matheny, Chris Carpenter

    It’s hard to blame the Cardinals for staying the course. Even with free agents Kyle Lohse and Lance Berkman set to depart, St. Louis ended 2012 with a roster that already looked like a winner entering 2013: Rotation: Adam Wainwright, Chris Carpenter, Jaime Garcia, Lance Lynn, Jake Westbrook, Shelby Miller, Joe Kelly, Trevor Rosenthal Bullpen:…

  11. GM downplays odds of Cardinals re-signing Kyle Lohse after Chris Carpenter’s setback

    Feb 5, 2013, 2:49 PM EDT

    kyle lohse getty

    Today’s news that Chris Carpenter is unlikely to pitch in 2013 and may end up retiring seemingly opens the door for the Cardinals to bring back Kyle Lohse. After all, Lohse remains unsigned as the draft pick compensation attached to his free agency has scared teams off and the Cardinals wouldn’t have to forfeit a…

  12. The National League is poised to have some excellent rotations

    Dec 4, 2012, 12:32 PM EDT

    Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez

    Even with Zack Greinke and Anibal Sanchez still up for grabs, the National League already seems set to sport some excellent rotations in 2013. How about this for the top four: Nationals: Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Jordan Zimmermann, Dan Haren, Ross Detwiler Giants: Matt Cain, Madison Bumgarner, Tim Lincecum, Ryan Vogelsong, Barry Zito Phillies: Roy…

  13. Cardinals GM calls re-signing Kyle Lohse “unlikely”

    Oct 25, 2012, 1:18 PM EDT

    Kyle Lohse Getty

    Kyle Lohse is hitting the open market coming off back-to-back career-years and today Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak admitted that re-signing the free agent right-hander is “probably unlikely.” Some of that no doubt has to do with Lohse being in line for a big contract, but even if he were somewhat affordable the Cardinals have…

  14. Cardinals likely to be even stronger in 2013

    Oct 23, 2012, 12:13 AM EDT

    Trevor Rosenthal

    It won’t take the sting out of Monday’s Game 7 loss to the Giants, but the Cardinals have a great chance of being a better team in 2013 than they were this year. The Cardinals’ only key free agents are Kyle Lohse and Lance Berkman. Berkman didn’t contribute this year anyway, and the Cardinals have…

  15. Jake Westbrook “ready to go” in case Cardinals need him

    Oct 17, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Jake Westbrook

    Jake Westbrook was left off the Cardinals’ playoff roster for the NLDS and NLCS, but the veteran right-hander is continuing to throw on the side in case he’s needed as an injury replacement. Westbrook threw a 49-pitch simulated game yesterday, telling reporters afterward: “I’m ready to go, without a doubt. I feel strong in saying…

  16. Jake Westbrook suffers setback with oblique injury

    Sep 22, 2012, 12:50 PM EDT

    Jake Westbrook

    One day after Chris Carpenter returned from supposed “season-ending” surgery to rejoin their rotation the Cardinals look likely to lose Jake Westbrook for at least the remainder of the regular season. Westbrook hasn’t pitched since September 8 because of an oblique injury and had to cut short today’s bullpen due to pain. Afterward he told…

  17. Cardinals take opener of series versus Dodgers

    Sep 14, 2012, 1:45 AM EDT

    Shane Robinson

    In a lineup with Matt Holliday, Carlos Beltran and Yadier Molina, it’s Allen Craig who has been chosen to hit cleanup of late. He showed why yet again Thursday, singling home the go-ahead run in the seventh as the Cardinals took the opener of a four-game series against the Dodgers 2-1. Both the Cardinals and…

  18. Chris Carpenter nearing return from surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome

    Sep 10, 2012, 9:20 PM EDT

    AP Chris Carpenter

    When Chris Carpenter underwent surgery in mid-July to alleviate symptoms of thoracic outlet syndrome, it was assumed that he would miss the rest of the season. However, it’s now realistic that he could play a critical role for the Cardinals down the stretch. Carpenter threw around 70 pitches in a simulated game this afternoon in…

  19. Jake Westbrook out for next start due to oblique strain

    Sep 9, 2012, 1:46 PM EDT

    westbrook getty

    The badly-slumping Cardinals have dropped three straight games and five of their last eight. And now they’ve also lost a member of their starting rotation for a yet-to-be-determined amount of time. According to MLB.com’s Jenifer Langosch, right-hander Jake Westbrook suffered a strained right oblique during his start Saturday night against the Brewers. He has been…

  20. Yadier Molina says clean hit, he’ll be back in a day or two

    Aug 29, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Josh Harrison, Yadier Molina

    Taking about the collision that knocking him out of Tuesday’s game, Yadier Molina called Josh Harrison‘s hit a “clean play,” according to MLB.com’s Jenifer Langosch. “Clean play,” Molina said. “Clean play. That’s part of baseball. He did what he had to do and I did what I had to do. It sucks because you don’t…

  21. Minus Tony La Russa, Cardinals still league’s biggest dipwads

    Aug 28, 2012, 10:15 PM EDT

    Josh Harrison, Yadier Molina

    Yeah, Josh Harrison bowled over Yadier Molina in the second inning Tuesday, knocking the St. Louis catcher out of the game soreness in his back, neck and shoulders. It was a violent collision, and the Cardinals weren’t happy about seeing maybe their best player leave with an injury. So, of course, Jake Westbrook threw at…

    Eight Men Out

    It was a light schedule and my Braves played a late game, so I watched “Eight Men Out” last night. For, like, the 5th or 6th time. And that just made me want to watch “Matewan” again for, um, the 20th time or thereabouts. Maybe tomorrow night. Anyway, damn you John Sayles, damn you. As…

  23. Jake Westbrook, Cardinals agree to contract extension

    Aug 21, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    Jake Westbrook

    Jake Westbrook‘s contract included an $8.5 million mutual option for next season, which gave him the ability to potentially become a free agent. Instead the 34-year-old right-hander and the Cardinals have agreed to a deal new deal that turns the $8.5 million mutual option into a guaranteed salary for 2013 and tacks on a new…

  24. With rotation spot on the line, James McDonald beats Cardinals

    Aug 17, 2012, 11:18 PM EDT

    James McDonald

    James McDonald entered Friday’s outing needing some sort of turnaround to save his rotation spot after a disastrous six-start run. He did that and more, shutting out the Cardinals for six innings and striking out seven in the Pirates’ 2-1 victory. McDonald, an All-Star snub after going 9-3 with a 2.37 ERA and a 0.97…

  25. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 7, 2012, 6:10 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v Detroit Tigers

    Tigers 7, Yankees 2: Justin Verlander was amazing, striking out 14. I’m not sure why Jim Leyland kept him in there for 132 pitches given that the Tigers had a five run lead by the sixth inning, but I guess the fans liked it. And heck, he was still throwing 100 miles per hour, so…
