Cardinals Announce Non-Tender For Descalso

ST. LOUIS, Mo., December 2, 2014 – The St. Louis Cardinals announced this evening that they did not tender a 2015 contract offer to infielder Daniel Descalso and he thus becomes a free-agent.

Descalso, 28, was drafted by the Cardinals in 2007 and he batted .243 with 10 HR’s and 111 RBI in 529 games over five seasons (2010-14).  The left-handed hitting Descalso was a member of the Cardinals 2011 World Championship team and he appeared in 44 career postseason games with St. Louis.

The Cardinals signed left-handed hitting free-agent infielder Dean Anna last month and they also acquired switch-hitting infielder Ty Kelly from the Seattle Mariners in a late November trade.

St. Louis’ 40-man Major League roster currently stands at 37.   The Cardinals announced the signing of free-agent right-handed reliever Matt Belisle earlier today.
