PITTSBURGH, Pa., August 17, 2017 – The St. Louis Cardinals announced this afternoon that they have placed right-handed pitcher Trevor Rosenthal on the 10-day disabled list with right posterior elbow irritation.  Right-handed pitcher Luke Weaver was recalled from Memphis (AAA) and will be eligible for tonight’s game in Pittsburgh.

Rosenthal, 27, had appeared in 50 games this season posting a 3-4 record with a 3.40 ERA and 76 strikeouts over 47.2 innings while converting 11 saves, including seven in as many appearances from July 28 through August 12.  He was removed from Wednesday night’s game in Boston after facing two batters in the ninth inning allowing a home run and issuing a walk.

Weaver, 23, the Cardinals 1st round draft pick in 2014 out of Florida State University, will appear on the Cardinals Major League roster for the third time this season, also getting recalled on July 3 and July 27.

The rookie pitcher is 1-1 with a 3.77 ERA in 14.1 innings at the Major League level this season making two starts and four total appearances.  His last MLB appearance was a start at Milwaukee on August 3, earning the win while pitching 6.1 innings allowing two runs while striking out eight batters.  Over two seasons in the Major Leagues, Weaver is 2-5 with a 5.10 ERA in 13 career appearances with 10 starts.  He will turn 24 on Monday.

In 15 minor league starts at Memphis, Weaver was 10-2 with a 2.55 ERA, striking out 76 batters in 77.2 innings.  His 10 wins led the Redbirds and ranks T-7th among all triple-A pitchers.

Weaver wears uniform No. 62.

ST. LOUIS,Mo., August 10, 2017– The St. Louis Cardinals issued the following statement today regarding the #RallyCat from last night’s game.

As everyone observed during last night’s game, Lucas Hackmann, a member of our grounds crew, secured the stray cat in the outfield and exited the playing surface at the left field gate and walked up towards the main concourse at Gate 3.  He then let the cat down outside of Gate 3 near the Stan Musial statue and went immediately to first aid to attend to his scratch and bite injuries.  At that point, as our ushers tried to contain the cat, a fan grabbed it and claimed it was hers.  As she left the ballpark, our security team caught up with her and asked her some questions.  She then abruptly left with the cat.  We understand from media accounts that the woman intended to take it home and care for it, but lost track of it in City Garden.  We are hopeful someone will find the cat and contact us so we can properly care for it.  Our grounds crew is working on developing a stray animal protocol to ensure the safety of both crew and animal should this happen again.  In the meantime, the Cardinals are looking to scratch and claw their way back to the top of the division standings.

PITCHER MIKE MAYERS OPTIONED TO MEMPHIS (AAA)

ST. LOUIS, MO., July 27, 2017 – The St. Louis Cardinals announced prior to this evening’s game that they have recalled right-handed pitcher Luke Weaver from Memphis (AAA) and that the team had optioned right-handed pitcher Mike Mayers to the triple-A club following last night’s game.

Weaver, 23, is slated to start tonight’s game against Arizona.   The 6-2, 170-pound Weaver appeared in two games for the Cardinals earlier this month, working 3.0 scoreless innings in relief during his call-up from July 3-9.

At Memphis, Weaver has posted a 9-1 mark with a 1.91 ERA in 19 starts (66.0 IP), holding the opposition to a .203 batting mark and striking out 69.   His 9 wins rank T2nd in the Pacific Coast League and he was named to the PCL All-Star team.  The former 1st round draft selection (27th player overall) in 2014 out of Florida State University made his most recent start on July 20 at Oklahoma City, when he allowed just one run on four hits in 5.0 innings of work.

The Florida native debuted with the Cardinals on August 13 last year, and made eight starts for St. Louis, the most recent coming on Sept. 21, 2016 at Colorado.

Weaver, who wears uniform no. 62, will become just the seventh starting pitcher used by the Cardinals this season.  Only the Pittsburgh Pirates have used fewer (six) starting pitchers this year.

New Field for Redbird Rookies Program Unveiled Today at Hess Park in Decatur, Ill.

ST. LOUIS, Mo., July 25, 2017 – Today the St. Louis Cardinals, in conjunction with Cardinals Care, the Decatur Park District and Decatur Memorial Hospital, announced the dedication of Dexter Fowler Field at Hess Park in Decatur, Illinois.

Cardinals Team President Bill DeWitt III, was joined at the dedication by Cardinals Vice President of Community Relations & Executive Director of Cardinals Care, Michael Hall; Cardinals Care Director & Youth Baseball Commissioner, Keith Brooks; Decatur Park Board Commissioners Bob Brilley, II(President), Chris Harrison (Vice President), Stacey Young, Jack Kenny and Chris Riley; Decatur Park District Executive Director, Bill Clevenger; Decatur Memorial Hospital President & CEO, Tim Stone and Decatur Mayor Julie Moore.  A video message from Dexter Fowler was also shown during the dedication.

The professionally designed field is the result of a six figure investment by Cardinals Care that includes a graded and irrigated playing field, two paved and covered dugouts, bleachers, fencing, and a state-of-the art solar powered scoreboard.  The field will play an integral role in teaching Redbird Rookies participants the values of teamwork, integrity, self-esteem, and leadership.

Dexter Fowler Field is the 23rd field dedicated by Cardinals Care since its inception in 1997.  Most recently, the Cardinals dedicated Adam Wainwright Field in August, 2016, at Bob Russell Park in Bellefontaine Neighbors, Mo.  Earlier this season, Fowler and his wife, Aliya, supported the Cardinals charitable foundation by making a personal financial donation of $100,000 to Cardinals Care in support of the Redbird Rookies program.

This season marks the 14th year of Cardinals Care’s innovative Redbird Rookies program, a free baseball league for kids who otherwise might not have the opportunity to play.  In addition to providing all the uniforms, gloves, bats, balls and other equipment needed for each team, Redbird Rookies also provides extensive off-field support in the areas of health, education, mentoring and the cultural arts for each of the nearly 4,500 kids who participate in the program each year.  (#CardsCare)

Cardinals Work #4AGreenerGame

For the first time in Busch Stadium’s history, the Cardinals will be purchasing enough Renewable Energy Credits from Ameren Missouri Pure Power to offset 100% of the energy consumption used at the ballpark for every regular season game in 2017.

The Cardinals Knight FM Green Team is a group of volunteers who walk down the aisles of the seating bowl in-between innings collecting recyclables from fans and promoting recycling at Busch Stadium.  In exchange for their services, volunteers are able to watch the game in standing room only sections of Busch Stadium, as collections are only done in-between innings and during pitching changes so as not to disturb fans trying to watch the game.  To volunteer or learn more, visit cardinals.com/green (#4AGreenerGame).

Cardinals in the Community

Cardinals Care (#CardsCare) was established to give fans a way of teaming up with Cardinals players and the organization to help children in our community—both on and off the baseball field.  Established in 1997, Cardinals Care has invested over $22 million to support St. Louis area children and built or renovated 22 youth ball fields in local under-resourced neighborhoods.  Most recently, the Cardinals dedicated Adam Wainwright Field at Bob Russell Park in August 2016.

This season marks the 14th year of Cardinals Care’s innovative Redbird Rookies program, a free baseball league for kids who otherwise might not have the opportunity to play.  In addition to providing all the uniforms, gloves, bats, balls and other equipment needed for each team, Redbird Rookies also provides extensive off-field support in the areas of health, education, mentoring and the cultural arts for each of the nearly 4,500 kids who participate in the program each year.  Fans can learn how to support Cardinals Care by visiting cardinals.com/community.

Herzog, McGee, Ankiel and More to Attend Four-Day Fantasy Camp at Home of Cardinals Triple-A Redbirds Club

ST. LOUIS, Mo., July 18, 2017 – After coming off a successful, special-edition of Cardinals Fantasy Camp in Cooperstown with Ozzie Smith earlier this month, the St. Louis Cardinals announced today that their 2017 regular season Fantasy Camp will be held at AutoZone Park in Memphis, Tenn. from September 14-17.

Presented by Heartland Coca-Cola Bottling Company, the four-day camp gives fans the opportunity to play alongside former Cardinals players Rick Ankiel and Kyle McClellan, be drafted and managed by Cardinals Alumni Danny Cox and Tom Lawless and interact with Redbirds legends Whitey Herzog and Willie McGee.  The regular season Fantasy Camp has proven to be a popular addition to the yearly Cardinals Fantasy Camps held at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, Fla., dating back to 2001.

“The Cardinals Fantasy Camp experience is like no other in sports and is more popular each year,” said Joe Pfeiffer, Cardinals Fantasy Camp Director.  “This one-of-a-kind experience gives campers the opportunity to step on the field alongside all-time Cardinals greats and live the ultimate baseball dream as a Major Leaguer.”

Throughout the four-day camp, 44 campers will receive instruction from some of the best in baseball and play four games under the management of a former Cardinals player.  All four team rosters, managed by John Costello, Cox, Lawless and Gene Roof, will be determined by a draft, with the former Cardinals/team managers selecting their players.  Two former Cardinals will also be drafted onto each roster and will play alongside the rest of the team.  Former Cardinals scheduled to play alongside the campers include Ankiel, Scott Cooper, Mike Crudale, Ed Easley, Bernard Gilkey, Bo Hart, Jason Isringhausen, McClellan, Jason Simontacchi and Brad Thompson.

All campers will receive two authentic, customized Memphis Redbirds jerseys and use a personalized locker in the visitors’ locker room at AutoZone Park during the round-robin tournament.  At the end of the weekend, one team will be crowned Cardinals Fantasy Camp Champions and receive Fantasy Camp championship rings.

Fantasy Camp registration includes a three-night stay at the DoubleTree Hotel Memphis Downtown.  Additional perks include a private reception and special Cardinals Alumni autograph sessions on September 14 and a customized dinner banquet featuring Hall of Fame Manager Whitey Herzog and a special live auction on September 15.  Dave LaPoint willserve as Fantasy Camp Commissioner, leading the camp along with Scott Terry.

A portion of the net proceeds from Cardinals Fantasy Camps benefit the Cardinals Kids Cancer Center at Mercy. To register for camp, or for more information, fans can visit cardinals.com/fantasycamp or email fantasycamp@cardinals.com.  Campers must be 27 years of age or older.  Dates for the 2018 Jupiter Cardinals Fantasy at Roger Dean Stadium will be announced in the next few weeks.  #CardsFantasyCamp

ALEX MEJIA, LUKE WEAVER OPTIONED TO MEMPHIS (AAA)

ST. LOUIS, Mo., July 13, 2017 – The St. Louis Cardinals announced that they activated second baseman Kolten Wong from the 10-day disabled list on Monday, and activated left-handed pitcher Kevin Siegrist from the 10-day disabled list today. To make room for both players on the St. Louis roster, infielder Alex Mejia and right-handed pitcher Luke Weaver were optioned to Memphis (AAA) following Sunday’s game.

Wong, 26, missed 24 games while on the D.L. with a right triceps strain (June 15-July 9). The left-handed hitting Wong recently made a rehab assignment with Springfield (AA), hitting .400 (6-for-15) with one home run, two doubles and four RBI in four games at second base. Prior to his injury, Wong was sporting a six-game hitting streak (9-20, .450) to raise his batting average to .301, which would rank tied for 15thin the National League but falls shy of the qualifying plate appearances.  Wong also missed 13 games (May 27-June 8) previously this season with a left elbow injury.

Siegrist, 27, missed 17 games while on the D.L. with a cervical spine sprain (June 23-July 12). Siegrist recently made a pair of rehab outings with Springfield, tossing 1.0 inning with one strikeout in each appearance. This season, the left-hander is 1-1 with a 4.94 ERA (27.1 IP/15 ER), one save and 25 strikeouts in 31 games.

Mejia, who had his contract purchased on June 28, enjoyed his Major League debut in a Cardinals uniform. The right-handed utility infielder batted .214 (3-for-14) with one home run and two RBI in 10 games (three starts) while sporting a perfect fielding percentage at second base, third base and shortstop.

Weaver appeared in two games with St. Louis during his 2017 debut since his recall on July 3. The right-hander threw 3.0 combined scoreless innings in relief against Miami. His final outing was 2.0 shutout frames with a pair of strikeouts on July 5.

ALL-STAR OUTFIELDER LEADS FSL IN EXTRA-BASE HITS AND TOTAL BASES; MAYERS RECORDS THIRD-LOWEST ERA (0.72) IN MINOR LEAGUE BASEBALL, MAKES 2017 CARDINALS DEBUT

           ST. LOUIS, Mo., July 6, 2017 The St. Louis Cardinals announced today that Springfield (AA) outfielder Randy Arozarena (pronounced Ahh-ro-sa-rena) and Memphis (AAA) starting pitcher Mike Mayers (pronounced MY-ers) have been honored as the Cardinals Minor League Player and Pitcher of the Month for June for their accomplishments on the field.

Arozarena, 22, signed a minor league contract with the Cardinals in late July 2016 out of La Habana, Cuba. The 5-foot-11, 170 lb. leftfielder batted .295 (23-for-78) with four home runs, 16 RBI and six stolen bases in 21 games with the Palm Beach Cardinals (High-A) last month. He paced the Florida State League in extra-base hits (14), total bases (46), ranked T1st in doubles (9), 4th in RBI and in slugging (.590), and 7th in OPS (.963). The right-handed hitting Arozarena hit safely in 17 games, including 10 in a row that was part of a season-best 12-game hit-streak.

His four June homers came over a five-game stretch that culminated with a grand slam on June 11 and the FSL Player of the Week honors for the June 5-11 period.

Overall this season, Arozarena is hitting .272 (74-for-272) with eight home runs, 40 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 72 games between Palm Beach and Springfield (AA). His 33 extra-base hits rank 2nd in the Florida State League, while his 22 doubles rank 5th in the circuit and trail only Luke Voit’s organizational-leading 23.

Arozarena, who was recently promoted to Springfield, started in right field for the South Division at the 2017 Florida State League Mid-Season All-Star Game. Earlier in the night, the outfielder won the rain-shortened Home Run Derby at Joker Marchant Stadium in Lakeland, Fla.

“Randy helped lead Palm Beach in winning the first half of the Florida State League South Division before his promotion to Springfield,” said Cardinals Director of Player Development, Gary LaRocque.

Mayers, 25, the Cardinals 3rd round pick (93rd overall) in the June, 2013 First-Year Player Draft out of the University of Mississippi, went 2-1 with a 0.72 ERA and limited the opposition to one earned run or fewer in four June starts (25.0 IP).

His 0.72 ERA led all triple-A pitchers and was the 3rd-lowest mark in the minor leagues. His 0.88 WHIP ranked 3rd in the Pacific Coast League while his .194  average against was 4th.

Mayers began the month by tying his career-high with 10 strikeouts over 7.0 innings in a June 3 winning start vs. Omaha. His other victory came in his final start of the month before being promoted to St. Louis, scattering a pair of hits over 7.0 shutout frames on June 20 at Round Rock.

“Michael started four games in Memphis with three quality starts, working 25.0 innings, striking out 29 hitters with only four walks,” said LaRocque.

Mayers, who recently appeared in two games with the Cardinals, currently ranks 6th in the Pacific Coast League in ERA. He leads Memphis in starts (14), innings pitched (77.0) and strikeouts (68), which are the 4th-most among Cardinals minor leaguers.

The minor league honors are the first for both players.
