Rains of FOX Sports Midwest comes word that the Cardinals have activated first baseman Lance Berkman from the 15-day DL and are hitting him fifth in Sunday’s series-finale against the Braves.

    St Louis Cardinals Photo Day

    Cardinals GM John Mozeliak provided an update on the status of Chris Carpenter on Saturday. B.J. Rains of FOX Sports Midwest has the goods: “If I had to guess, sometime in mid-June hopefully we’ll be ready to start thinking about a throwing program,” said the general manager. “His strength is getting stronger and that’s measurable,…

    Brian McCann, Adam Wainwright, Martin Prado

    The Braves spoiled Friday night’s Tony La Russa number-retirement ceremony at Busch Stadium by snatching a 9-7 extra-innings win over the Cardinals. On Saturday evening, they were at it again. With 25-year-old righty Brandon Beachy holding the defending World Series champions to two hits over six innings and the Atlanta offense attacking St. Louis starter Adam Wainwright…

    Lance Berkman had hoped to return from his calf injury today, but general manager John Mozeliak just announced that the Cardinals first baseman is not ready to come off the disabled list.

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

    May 10, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    New York Mets v Philadelphia Phillies

    Mets 10, Phillies 5: Cliff Lee was OK in his return, but he was on a pitch count and the bullpen — including reverted-to-longman-work Kyle Kendrick — got shellacked. Again. Ike Davis drove in three.  The Mets so thoroughly own Citizens Bank Park this year that the Phillies are gonna have to launch some awkward…

    Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina was removed in the ninth inning of Tuesday’s game against the Diamondbacks after getting crossed up with reliever Mitchell Boggs and taking a pitch off his left hand. Molina is not in Wednesday’s lineup, but X-rays taken late Tuesday night ruled out a fracture and MLB.com’s Jenifer Langosch says the 29-year-old…

  7. Kansas City’s Kelvin Herrera is MLB’s new hardest thrower

    May 9, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    Kelvin Herrera

    Averaging a cool 99.1 mph with his fastball, Royals reliever Kelvin Herrera has taken over as the league’s hardest thrower since being called up last month. Here’s the top 10, according to Fangraphs data: 99.1 – Herrera 98.6 – Andrew Cashner (Padres) 98.4 – Henry Rodriguez (Nationals) 96.8 – Nate Jones (White Sox) 96.8 –…

  8. X-rays on Yadier Molina’s hand injury come back “clean”

    May 9, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Yadier Molina

    Yadier Molina and Mitchell Boggs got crossed up a pitch last night, with the reliever throwing a fastball when the catcher was expecting a slider. The end result was Molina taking a mid-90s fastball off his hand, which caused the always tough catcher to leave the game, but according to manager Mike Matheny an X-ray…

    Texas Rangers batter Josh Hamilton runs to the dugout after hitting his fourth two-run home run in the eight inning against the Baltimore Orioles in Baltimore

    Rangers 10, Orioles 3: Josh Hamilton: four bombs, eight RBI and 18 total bases on a 5 for 5 night.   Every time he does something awesome this year I imagine him muttering something about how dumb it was for Jon Daniels not to talk about a contract extension before the season began. Yankees 5,…

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

    May 8, 2012, 6:05 AM EDT

    Justin Turner, Jordany Valdespin

    Mets 5, Phillies 2: I had been agitating for Jonathan Papelbon to pitch more. Specifically in tie games.  Well, he did here and gave up a game-losing three-run homer to Jordany Valdespin. I suppose we’ll let Cholly run the team from here on out. Marlins 4, Astros 0: Carlos Zambrano with the three-hit shutout pushes his ERA…

  11. Jered Weaver gives up three hits, settles for fifth win

    May 8, 2012, 12:03 AM EDT

    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…

  12. Why not another no-hitter for Jered Weaver?

    May 7, 2012, 5:40 PM EDT

    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…

  13. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    May 7, 2012, 5:44 AM EDT

    Chris Davis

    Orioles 9, Red Sox 6: Just your standard seventeen inning affair in which a first baseman is the winning pitcher, after throwing two shutout innings and and outfielder is the losing pitcher after giving up a three-run homer . Chris Davis shut out the Red Sox for the 16th and 17th innings, striking out two.…

  14. Lance Berkman not ready to return from calf injury

    May 5, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    berkman getty

    Lance Berkman tested his strained left calf yesterday, but Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that “he felt some residual tightness and the plan now is for him not to try to run again until Monday.” Hummel notes that Berkman missed 21 days with a similar injury in 2009, so a similar…

  15. Twins claim Erik Komatsu off waivers from Cardinals, designate Clete Thomas for assignment

    May 4, 2012, 2:44 PM EDT

    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. Thomas homered in his second at-bat for Minnesota … and then went 3-for-26 with 16 strikeouts, and today the Twins designated him for assignment while…

  16. No, the Mets aren’t calling up their young pitching prospects

    May 4, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    New York Mets v Washington Nationals

    Mike Pelfrey is out for the season following Tommy John surgery and the Mets’ various options to replace him in the rotation aren’t very appealing, but general manager Sandy Alderson made it very clear that the team isn’t going to call up any of its top pitching prospects for a short-term fix. Zack Wheeler, who…

  17. A.J. Burnett rocked for 12 runs in this season’s worst pitching performance

    May 3, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals v Pittsburgh Pirates

    A.J. Burnett pitched well in his first two starts after returning from a fractured orbital bone, coming off the disabled list with seven shutout innings on April 21 and then tossing six innings of two-run ball on April 27. Those seven scoreless frames came against St. Louis, but last night that same Cardinals lineup clobbered…

  18. Carlos Beltran homers twice, drives in seven runs

    May 3, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    Carlos Beltran

    Albert Pujols remains homerless for the Angels, but the man signed to replace him in the Cardinals’ lineup went deep twice yesterday and drove in seven runs. Carlos Beltran now has seven homers in 23 games for St. Louis, and he’s hitting .279 with a .398 on-base percentage and .535 slugging percentage to essentially match…

    Chipper Jones

    Three walkoff homers and a no-hitter? Holy moley, that was a great night of baseball guys.

  20. Chris Johnson powers Astros with two homers, six RBI

    May 2, 2012, 6:02 PM EDT

    Chris Johnson

    Chris Johnson entered Wednesday without a homer in 86 at-bats, but he took Chris Schwinden deep in each of his first two plate appearances today to lead the Astros to an 8-1 win over the Mets. Johnson drove in five runs with the two homers and later added a sixth RBI on a single on…

  21. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    May 2, 2012, 6:07 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Toronto Blue Jays

    Blue Jays 8, Rangers 7:  We hear a lot about Bryce Harper, but Brett Lawrie is a more fully formed version of “young, confident dude who can be a difference maker.”  Toronto fought back from an early 5-0 deficit, took the lead, then blew the lead before Lawrie hit a leadoff homer that just barely cleared…

  22. Allen Craig returns from knee surgery, rejoins Cardinals

    May 1, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Allen Craig

    UPDATE: As expected, the Cardinals activated Craig from the DL. Rule 5 pick Erik Komatsu was designated for assignment to make room on the roster. ========== Allen Craig is slated to return from November knee surgery and rejoin the Cardinals’ lineup tonight, several weeks later than initially hoped. Despite the delay Craig told Derrick Goold…

    Royals celebration

    Royals 8, Indians 2: I keep hitting refresh on the scoreboard but nothing changes so, apparently, this is correct and the Royals actually won a game.  Billy Butler hit two homers as Kansas City beat up on Ubaldo Jimenez. Mets 5, Marlins 1: David Wright hit a two-run homer, giving him 735 RBI in his…

Craig has been on the disabled list since…

  25. Lance Lynn is the first starter to four wins this season

    Apr 25, 2012, 6:20 PM EDT

    Lance Lynn

    Just as everyone predicted, right? Lance Lynn, who was competing just to make the Cardinals as a middle reliever before Chris Carpenter got hurt this spring, won his fourth straight start Thursday by pitching eight innings of one-run ball against the Cubs. Lynn has allowed exactly one run in each of his four starts to…
