St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia has impressed many critics in his battle for the fifth-starter job. "I didn't know what to expect from him frankly, and everything we've seen has been very surprising. And very positive," general manager John Mozeliak said.
Fantasy Tip: Even if Garcia makes the roster be wary, because he does have a history of arm issues. Still, he has pitched well enough to be considered in the mid to late rounds of most fantasy leagues.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright may have his workouts and/or innings reduced before the 2015 season, as the team fears this may be contributing to his late-season struggles. "Clearly in Adam's case being a veteran and his status on the team, we haven't really had to pull the reins on him as much as we have with younger pitchers. But having said that, given everything he has done over the last couple years and taking that aggregate sense, yes, we probably do need to look at that this offseason," general manager John Mozeliak said.

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.
