Drew VerHagen

Drew VerHagen has been a serviceable reliever in 2024 for the Cardinals, and I actually wouldn't mind seeing him back in the bullpen in 2024.

He's appeared in 59 games, posting a 4-1 record with a 3.90 ERA and 59 S) in 60 G. VerHagen isn't a high leverage arm, but he is a solid middle innings guy who could provide length for the bullpen as well if needed. He also has some pretty nasty stuff at times, so if he gets more consistent with it, he could be relied on in bigger spots as well.

VerHagen is a free agent this offseason, and while I'm sure the Cardinals will call him, I know a lot of other teams will as well. My guess is we do not see VerHagen back in St. Louis next year.
