St Louis Cardinals executive John Mozeliak has his eye on certain players once the MLB lockout ends. Here are some to avoid.
St Louis Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak appears to have his eye on certain free agents once the MLB lockout ends and a new Collective Bargaining Agreement is reached between the union and owners.
The team will most likely seek out a couple of relievers, possibly another starter, and maybe even a proven hitter to become a designated hitter. The Cardinals are likely to shop the free-agent market with some gusto before thinking of trading for players.
The team is reportedly considering Ryan Tepera. After him, it’s really anyone’s guess who Mozeliak will consider. Anyone from Colin Moran to Archie Bradley could be options for the array of needs the club will have post-lockout. It will be quite the show once a new collective bargaining agreement is reached and baseball activities can resume with new deals to be reached for players available. Get your popcorn ready. It’s going to be wild!
While there are many ideal candidates available via the free-agent market, there are several who are duds that the Cardinals should absolutely avoid at all costs.
Let’s take a look at some of the pitchers the Cardinals should avoid at all costs.
