September roster expansion candidates for the Cardinals

3 of 11

Candidate #2

Miguel Socolovich

I am not too sure why this guy got the boot. He has been solid in the couple times he has been up this year. In 21 total games pitched he has an ERA of 1.54 striking out a decent 7.3 per nine innings. Aside from his slightly average FIP being at 3.21 which attests to the solid defense he has behind him, I don’t see why he can’t be a solid contributor again in September.
