St. Louis Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak plans to spend the next week evaluating whether C Tony Cruz and C George Kottaras will be a solution for the rest of the season or whether the team will seek a catcher at the deadline. "One thing we've always said is we'd like to see what Tony Cruz is capable of doing on a day in and day out basis," said Mozeliak. "But having said that, we also want to give ourselves the best chance to win."

The St. Louis Cardinals are currently determining how to find big-league playing time for top OF prospect Oscar Taveras, but general manager John Mozeliak said it will likely come at the expense of someone else. "I actually think from a baseball standpoint he could play in the big leagues," Mozeliak said. "But we've got to determine playing time up here with the current roster. Are we at a point where we're willing to take away at-bats from the current roster and give them to somebody else?" If Taveras is called up it could be at the expense of OFs Allen Craig, Jon Jay, Peter Bourjos and Matt Adams.

"I'm not going to get into who we might trade, but we can't rule out anything as the trade deadline approaches," Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jake Westbrook (elbow) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, May 12, with right elbow inflammation. Westbrook originally felt discomfort during his start May 8 in Wrigley Field, though the team gave him a couple days to determine if it persisted. "It's really not that big of a deal," general manager John Mozeliak said Sunday. "Didn't want to push it. Didn't want it to become a big problem." The Cardinals purchased the contract of SP John Gast from Triple-A Memphis, and he will start Tuesday, May 14, against the New York Mets.
Fantasy Tip: All indications are this injury won't be anything as severe as the Chris Carpenter or Jason Motte season-ending injuries were, although Carpenter wants to return as a reliever. The Cardinals will definitely miss Westbrook's 2-1 record and 1.62 earned run average, but fantasy owners should expect Westbrook back by the end of May.
