St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa and general manager John Mozeliak said they plan to fill the extra spot in the rotation from within, according to MLB.com's Matthew Leach. Right now, RP Kyle McClellan appears to be the front-runner for the job after SP Adam Wainwright (elbow) has been pronounced out for the year. However, if McClellan is converted to a starter, it would put more pressure on RPs Mitchell Boggs and Jason Motte in the bullpen. If the team goes with either SPs Lance Lynn or P.J. Walters, it wouldn't tax the bullpen as much. Pitching coach Dave Duncan has made it no secret that he prioritizes the rotation above the bullpen, and that he is a backer of McClellan. SPs Miguel Batista and Ian Snell both appear to be long shots for the extra spot. Batista is likely to be the team's swing man. SP Adam Ottavino (shoulder) is coming off a shoulder injury and is unlikely to win the spot.
