BREAKING: Cardinals Receive Devastating News For $4 Million Target Signing

St. Louis continues to pass on worthy additions

Following their 2023 National League Central last-place finish, the St. Louis Cardinals wasted no time in retooling their pitching staff this offseason.

The Cardinals should be in a stronger position to contend this coming season with the addition of three experienced starting pitchers and relievers Andrew Kittredge and Kenyan Middleton.

There are others who believe that St. Louis requires additional pitching depth; yet, the team is holding firm and has missed another chance to strengthen their bullpen.

As per Mark Feinsand of, “Ryne Stanek has agreed to a deal with the (Seattle) Mariners, per source” on Friday.

In 50 2/3 innings pitched for the Houston Astros last season, Stanek recorded a 3-1 record with a 4.09 ERA, 51-to-21 strikeout-to-walk ratio,.221 batting average against, and 1.24 WHIP.

Throughout his seven-season career, the St. Louis native has thrown for the Miami Marlins, Tampa Bay Rays, and Astros. There was conjecture that he might wind up joining the Cardinals, where he would be a great fit as the team searched for cheap but effective relievers.

With a.210 batting average against and a 1.27 WHIP since making his Major League Baseball debut in 2017, the 32-year-old has amassed a 3.45 ERA. Over the course of his career, he has been largely reliable; only two of his seasons have seen a WHIP above 1.30.

The Cardinals have lost a number of chances this summer, including the chance to sign Stanek and bolster their pitching staff.

John Mozeliak, the president of baseball operations for the Cardinals, is confident in the present roster; hopefully, this will prove to be enough, and we won’t have to look back and wonder why we didn’t do more to strengthen the bullpen.
