    Kyle McClellan on the disabled list due to a ribcage injury. Martin Perez on the disabled list due to a fractured left forearm. Robbie Ross moved to the bullpen recently. Justin Grimm and Randy Wells sent to Triple-A. The Rangers have had a lot of moving parts as they attempted to find a suitable candidate…

    Kyle McClellan, who was hoping to come back from shoulder surgery and win a spot on the Rangers as a fifth starter or long reliever, has been shut down with more shoulder problems. Ron Matejko of ESPN Dallas reports that McClellan had to cut short Sunday’s bullpen session, but the right-hander seems optimistic that it’s…

  3. The Rockies are “aggressively pursuing” Carl Pavano and Derek Lowe

    Carl Pavano

    The Rockies are cornering the market on lousy pitchers. After the weekend’s signings of Miguel Batista and Chris Volstad, Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that they aren’t through yet: Even with Volstad in the fold, the Rockies are aggressively pursuing free agents Carl Pavano, a right-hander they have tried to acquire numerous times…

  4. Rangers sign Kyle McClellan to minor league deal

    Kyle McClellan, who was released by the Cardinals in November, has agreed to a minor-league contract with the Rangers. McClellan gets an invitation to spring training as he tries to come back from July shoulder surgery. If healthy he could be a nice low-cost pickup for Texas considering his 3.69 ERA in 378 career innings.…

    Kyle McClellan has been on the disabled list since mid-May with a strained elbow, but Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that the Cardinals right-hander recently underwent season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder. As recently as six weeks ago doctors told McClellan that he could avoid elbow surgery…

  6. Cardinals activate Allen Craig, put Skip Schumaker on DL

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

    Another day, another Cardinals player on the disabled list, as Skip Schumaker was placed on the shelf with a right hamstring strain. This time around at least the Cardinals are getting a key player back off the DL, as they activated Allen Craig following the minimum 15-day stay for a hamstring injury of his own.…

  7. Kyle McClellan to avoid elbow surgery, rest for 6-8 weeks

    As the injuries continue to pile up in St. Louis the Cardinals got a bit of good news on the health front, as doctors believe reliever Kyle McClellan‘s partially torn elbow ligament won’t require surgery. McClellan got a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews and for once that wasn’t a precursor to going under the…

  8. Kyle McClellan diagnosed with partial tear of UCL in elbow

    We heard earlier this morning that right-hander Kyle McClellan feared the possibility of requiring Tommy John surgery for the second time in his career. There’s still a chance it may happen, but he received a minor piece of good news after being examined by Cardinals’ head team physician Dr. George Paletta. B.J. Rains of FOX…

  9. Cardinals fear Kyle McClellan’s elbow injury may be serious

    Kyle McClellan left last night’s game with elbow soreness and admitted afterward that he’s been pitching with pain for several weeks now. McClellan, who underwent Tommy John surgery as a minor leaguer in 2006, told Rick Eymer of MLB.com: “The pain is somewhat similar to when I did it in the minors, but that was…

  10. Lance Lynn moving back to rotation with Chris Carpenter out

    Mar 12, 2012, 3:10 PM EDT

    Lance Lynn

    Fortunately for the Cardinals, Chris Carpenter got hurt in early March, rather than at the end of the month. Manager Mike Matheny made the curious decision last month to have Lance Lynn, Kyle McClellan and Mitchell Boggs all prepare as relievers this spring, even though those three guys seemed to be his next best rotation…

  11. Cardinals considering “Plan B” options in case Carpenter misses the start of the season

    Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak spoke to ESPN 101’s Brian Stull on Sunday morning about Chris Carpenter‘s neck injury, which has been officially diagnosed as a bulging cervical disc. Mozeliak didn’t get into many specifics about the diagnosis nor did he speak about a recovery timetable for the 36-year-old right-hander, but he did admit there…

  12. Cardinals won’t stretch out Lance Lynn, Kyle McClellan

    Feb 20, 2012, 11:00 PM EDT

    Lance Lynn

    OK, yeah, boring headline; this one probably won’t get a lot of clicks. But it rates as a pretty curious decision to me. New Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Monday that he doesn’t plan to stretch out any of his relievers, a group that includes former starters Lance Lynn, Kyle McClellan and Mitchell Boggs. In…

  13. Running down the rosters: St. Louis Cardinals

    Feb 13, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    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…

  14. The Rangers met with Roy Oswalt today

    Jan 30, 2012, 7:29 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Arizona Diamondbacks

    As mentioned by Craig yesterday morning, the Rangers did indeed have a meeting with Roy Oswalt today. But if you’re looking for any major developments, you’re probably going to be disappointed. T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports that the situation “remains ongoing and unresolved.” Meanwhile, Richard Durrett of ESPNDallas.com described it as an “exploratory meeting.” It’s probably fair…

  15. Cardinals seeking trade partner for Kyle McClellan

    mcclellan getty

    From Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch comes word that the Cardinals are “actively shopping” right-hander Kyle McClellan in an effort to free up payroll for a run at a free agent starter. Like, well, Roy Oswalt. McClellan, a 27-year-old native of the north St. Louis suburbs, registered a 4.19 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and…

  16. A Night at the Peabody: covering the premiere of MLB Productions’ 2011 World Series Film…

    I was invited, through Craig and MLB’s PR people, to attend and report on the premiere of the 2011 World Series Film on Tuesday night in St. Louis. I’ve been writing professionally about baseball since 2008, but it was the first time I had covered any sort of live event with a media badge and…
