Cardinals Scouts watching Gray & Santana


I just received some information that the St. Louis Cardinals Scouts where at the A’s versus Twins game checking out Sonny Grey and Ervin Santana. I tend to think they may be looking with a close eye on Gray. He has struggled this season but based on his age of 26 and a proven winning record last year with a win loss record of 14-7 he just might be a good pick up. Here is the short article that was written by Jeff Todd and Steve Adams……

  • Santana wasn’t the only starter of note in that contest, as Athletics righty Sonny Gray was also on the bump. Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the match-up drew attention from quite a few scouts, with representatives from the Blue Jays, Royals, Orioles, Marlins and Cardinals among those in attendance to see the two potential trade candidates throw. Oakland skipper Bob Melvin said that he felt Gray may be turning a corner after the showing, in which he battled through six innings with only one earned run on the board. Gray did allow four walks, but worked through some tough spots and, in Melvin’s words, “found a little of his mojo.” With Gray showing some life and the A’s continuing to muddle through the season, Slusser says that some rival executives feel there’s daylight for a deal on Oakland’s staff ace. There’s little question that the Twins would at least be open to moving Santana, and he’d represent a less costly addition for those organizations in need of rotation help (on the prospect side of the equation, at least; his contractual obligations would need to be worked out).
