Cardinals Sign Walden to a 2 Year Deal

cardswalk

The St. Louis Cardinals announced today that they have agreed with recently-acquired right-handed reliever Jordan Walden on a two-year contract for the 2015 and 2016 seasons, thus avoiding salary arbitration.  The new pact also includes a club option for the 2017 season.

Walden, 27, was acquired by the Cardinals on November 17 along with outfielder Jason Heyward in a trade with the Atlanta Braves.  The 6-5, 250-pound Texas native struck out 62 batters in 50.0 innings pitched this past season and he had a 2.88 ERA to go along with three saves.  

Walden, who has appeared in 50 or more games in three of the past four seasons, led the Braves with 20 Holds in 2014.  His career mark is 12-13 with a 3.10 ERA and 38 saves in 231 games pitched, striking out 254 batters in 211.2 IP.

Walden led the Los Angeles Angels in saves with 32 in 2011 and was named an American League All-Star that same season when he finished 5th in the junior circuit in saves while also compiling a 2.98 ERA.

The Cubs sign Jason Motte

jmcubs

I am sad to see Jason Motte leave the Cardinal organization due to his dedication to the team and the cause he is very much involved with, Strike Out for Cancer. I met him briefly a few years ago and found him very out going and personable.Motte signed a one year contract worth $4.5 million. Motte was one of the game’s best relievers prior to undergoing Tommy John surgery, posting a 2.43 ERA from 2010-2012 while averaging 9.5 K/9 and 2.4 BB/9. Motte scuffled in his return from Tommy John surgery this past season, posting a 4.68 ERA and 17/9 K/BB ratio over 25 innings while showing diminished velocity. The 32-year-old right-hander made just nine appearances during the second half due to a back injury and he was left off the Cardinals’ postseason roster. I will sure miss him. With the Cubs stacking their team and trying to lure other players like Colby Rasmus to the roster. With these additions the Cubs just might give the Cardinals a run for there money.

Cardinals Picked Tyler Waldron for Rule 5 Draft

cardswaldron

Today during the Rule 5 Draft the Cardinals did not lose any player but gained a pitcher Tyler Waldron from the Pirates organization. RHP – A former 5th round pick in 2010, the 24-year-old Waldron hasn’t given the Pirates a whole lot to dream on, yet he continues to get chances, like a second stint in the AFL this fall.  He continues to work as a starter, but he doesn’t miss anywhere near enough bats to ever start in the majors (career 5.7 K/9) and will be a reliever, if anything, in the majors.  He’s another low-ceiling arm and the Pirates have to hope that his stuff plays up in a relief role. Unlike other players  Waldron was taken in the major-league opening of the Rule 5 draft who have to remain on the big-league roster all season for a team to gain his rights, Waldron was available to be selected and can remain in the minors.

Cardinals Sign Mark Reynolds

cardinalsmark

Today the Cardinals agreed to a contract with Mark Reynolds. It is a one year $2M contract with incentives. In 2015 Reynolds will be used as a back up for first baseman Matt Adams and third base for Matt Carpenter. He will be the power bat that the Cardinals have been looking for even thought Reynolds has led the league in strikeouts from 2008-2011. Reynolds has hit 224 home runs in eight seasons in the majors with Arizona, Baltimore, Cleveland, the Yankees and the Brewers. He also strikes out a lot, and four times has led the league in that category. I am hoping Reynolds to be a presence with his bat in 2015 instead of becoming Ty Wigginton during the 2013 season with the Cardinals, a huge bust. At least he has hit 20 or more for the past four seasons

Getting to Know Riley King

RileyKing

There are a few Major League Baseball players that follow my twitter feed like Omar Infante from of the Royals, former San Francisco Giants player Fred Lewis, St. Louis Cardinals favorite second baseman Tommy Herr and Riley King of the Kansas city Royals. Just recently I was able to have a brief interview with Mr. King about his career. Riley King was born and raised in  Missoula , Montana.. He was drafted by the Kansas City Royals from Carroll College(Helena, MT) in 2013 during the 24th round. He bats right and throws right . He is able to play all three outfield positions. At one point the San Diego Padres were also interested in him as a pitcher before being drafted by the Royals. Just a side note the first five questions where asked by me and the last two by my son Gabriel.

Cardinal Red Baseball: Tell us about how your beginnings in baseball and how you got to this point in your career with the Kansas City Royals?

Riley King: I have played baseball, basketball, and football ever since I can remember. I continued to play all three despite multiple people telling to focus on one or at least two. I played legion baseball in Montana because we aren’t able to have high school baseball due to the weather up here in Montana. I wasn’t able to do travel tournaments, showcases or any camps for baseball because I played three sports year around. I ended up being scouted by a couple teams and couldn’t more excited and grateful for the Kansas City Royals drafting me.

Cardinal Red Baseball:  What was your reaction when you got the call that you were drafted by the Kansas City Royals?

Riley King: On draft day, I wasn’t sure whether it was a for sure deal or not I was going to get drafted. I actually had a double header the day of the draft, therefore I gave my laptop and phone to my dad and told him to answer any calls during the draft for me because I wasn’t able to due to being on the field. I was in the middle of game one in center field and saw my father answer a phone, hug my family, and give people high fives. That is when I knew I was drafted, I just didn’t know what team. I came in and met my dad behind the dugout and gave my family hugs and was so relieved. It was an extremely special feeling and moment.

Cardinal Red Baseball:  What MLB team did you follow when growing up in Montana? who were your favorite players on that team?

Riley King: Being from Montana, people are fans of teams from all over the place due to not having a big league team here. I  never really had a favorite team that I was a die hard fan for. I loved watching the Yankees and am a big Derek Jeter fan because of the way he plays the game.

Cardinal Red Baseball: Tell us about your career when you played at Carroll College?

Riley King:  I committed to Carroll College to play basketball my senior year knowing I was able to come back and play my final year of Montana legion baseball. I thought I was going to be a college quarterback for my whole life, however a knee injury in my first game senior year resulted in losing all my scholarship offers.  I went to Carroll College my freshman year and played basketball. The school didn’t have baseball and didn’t even play baseball in college. Therefore I was eligible for the draft. I came back to play my final season of baseball and ended up getting drafted and leaving school to pursue my dream of professional baseball.

Cardinal Red Baseball: My son Gabe has been playing baseball for the past seven years. He started out in tee-ball and now plays 10U baseball here in St. Louis, Mo. He plays different positions, catcher, left field, third base shortstop and first base and he also pitches. What kind of advice would you give him in order to make it in the big leagues?

Riley King: If I had any advice for a young baseball player, I would say to control what you can control. They’re plenty of things that are out of a baseball players control. However, they can always control attitude, effort, working hard and having fun. You have to have fun playing this game. Remember, people always are out there working hard and after the same dream you are. Enjoy it all, it goes by quick and have fun playing a wonderful game with your best friends.

Gabriel:  Are you a St. Louis Cardinals fan? and if so who is your favorite player?

Riley King:  I enjoy watching the cardinals play and respect the organization as well as how they play. They are a impressive organization that has a great farm system as well as successful big league team. I am a big Carlos Beltran fan, so I enjoyed watching him play for them.

Gabrie : If you were traded to another MLB team, which teams would be on your trade list and why?

Riley  King:If I was to get traded to another MLB team I would just hope it was with an organization that is impressive and great as the Royals. The Royals are run by great people, as well do the right things, Like I said earlier, I am extremely grateful for the opportunity that they have given me and hope to make the most of it.

Gabe and I want to wish Mr. King a fabulous 2015 season and a big thanks for the interview.

Cardinals Reliever Kyle McClellan Anounces Retirement

KMac

Today ex-Cardinals reliever Kyle McClellan announces his retirement on Facebook today to his fans. Here is the message via Facebook:

I got news yesterday from my doctor that after a long rehab process from shoulder surgery last November my shoulder was not going to get back to where I would be able to pitch at a high level again. As I heard the news and processed it I have several thoughts that I wanted to share….

My first thoughts were how thankful I am to the St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers. First the Cardinals… The Cardinals drafted me when I was a 17 year old kid who grew up here in St. Louis as a lifelong Cardinal fan. During my time with the organization I not only grew as a baseball player but I grew as a person. I learned lessons in my 11 years with the Cardinals that I will take with me for the rest of my life.

The Texas Rangers…. I only spent one season with the Rangers but I will always be thankful for them because they gave me a chance after coming off of a surgery. They treated me with such respect and were honest with me from day one and that is something that I will always appreciate. I wasn’t able to perform to the level that I would have liked in my short time there and to those fans and teammates I apologize for that. I will always be a fan of the organization and am rooting for you.

I also need to thank the fans and my teammates. If it weren’t for the fans we would not have this great sport. I was so fortunate to be a part of two great fan bases who showed up every night to support the team. Many players can only hope to be a part of organizations and fan bases like these and I did not take that for granted.
My teammates…. I have had some of the most amazing teammates who have shaped my character and taught me so much. I wish I had more time in the game to be able to pass the things I learned from you guys to the younger kids like you guys did to me. I have relationships now because of the game that I will have for the rest of my life and I will cherish those. I will include staff as my teammates, Dr. Paletta saved my career 4 times with repairing my arm so I can get back to pitching. The training staffs, rehab teams, clubhouse guys, traveling secretaries, coaches, (if I left someone out I’m sorry) you guys made such a difference in my career and I can’t thank you enough. Your jobs tend to be overlooked and not enough people tell you thanks but know that I tried to not overlook the work you did to make things easier on us as players.

Last and not least I would like to thanks my friends and family. To my friends who have supported me and be on this amazing ride with me I’m sorry that I have missed weddings, birthdays, and just getting together but am so thankful for you support and helping me through the good and hard times over my career. My family, your support has been incredible and allowed me to be able to focus on baseball and know that everything else has been taken care of at home. My wife Bridget, you always were understanding and encouraging to me to chase my dream all the way back in the minor league days. You have done an amazing job raising the kids while I have been gone so much and now I’m home and I’m sure you will be looking for ways to get me out of the house!

I can honestly say that this is not a sad day but a day of excitement. I get to move on to a new chapter and I’m excited to see what that chapter brings. The verse James 1:2 comes to mind, “Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way consider it an opportunity for great joy” As I sit here today I am both very joyful and thankful for the time I had to play the game.

As many of you have cheered me on throughout my career this picture is my tip of the cap and thanks to you…

-Kyle
