St. Louis Cardinals intent on getting better, not chasing Chicago Cubs (1/16/17)ST. LOUIS -- A month before spring training, the St. Louis Cardinals already have plenty of motivation -- they're focused on returning to the playoffs, rather than trying to overtake the rival Chicago Cubs. In fact, Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak really wants to avoid any notion that the Cubs winning the World Series is the driving force behind the St. Louis push to improve after missing the postseason for the first time since 2010...
Cardinals, Matt Adams agree to $2.8 million deal (1/12/17)ST. LOUIS -- The Cardinals and first baseman Matt Adams agreed to a $2.8 million, one-year deal Thursday to avoid arbitration, though his role remains unclear with Matt Carpenter taking over his everyday job. Adams, who made $1.65 million last season, has been shopped this offseason but could also give St. Louis a power bat off the bench. The left-handed hitting Adams is a career .284 hitter against right-handed pitching, so he offers an option in a platoon role...

He went 2-2 with a 3.41 ERA in 29 relief appearances this year. Maness was drafted in 2011 by the Cardinals and is 17-10 with a 3.19 ERA in 244 career relief appearances...
Cardinals send LHP Jaime Garcia to Braves for 3 prospects (12/2/16)ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Braves made another move in the dramatic offseason retooling of their rotation on Thursday by acquiring left-hander Jaime Garcia from the St. Louis Cardinals. The Cardinals got a trio of prospects, including second baseman Luke Dykstra, the son of former All-Star Lenny Dykstra. The Cardinals also landed right-handers John Gant and Chris Ellis...
Brett Cecil agrees to deal with Cardinals (11/21/16)ST. LOUIS -- The Cardinals filled the biggest void in their bullpen Monday with Brett Cecil, the only left-handed reliever that piqued their interest on the free-agent market. Cecil was introduced at Busch Stadium after finalizing a $30.5 million, four-year contract. He is expected to help in high-leverage situations along with Kevin Siegriest and ahead of closer Seung Hwan Oh...
