Welcome back to the offseason version of the Prospect Preacher where in honor of Daniel, we have gone all Doctor Who on taking over the lead. It has now been nearly a month since the official end of the St. Louis season, and the Hot Stove is set on simmer. I had some assistance coming up with the name for these almost daily posts and picked a great time to get back in the action.
Today marks the deadline for adding players to the 40-man roster in order to keep them away from the Rule 5 Draft, and this post gets everyone ready for next month’s festivities. The big name that will be officially become part of the Cardinals’ immediate future is Oscar Taveras, and he may be joined by a couple of pitchers. There are a few spots open currently with at least two more potentially open by the time of the draft.
I’m keeping it short in my return but will already be talking about the Draft (June is right around the corner, right?) and how the Peoria Chiefs are helping out another town devastated by a natural disaster in tomorrow’s edition. Feel free to send any minors links you want included to my Twitter @aprfool79 as I’m already planning some road trips for the 2014 Campaign!
