Cardinals make coaching changes

Chris Maloney reassigned. Bill Mueller taking a leave of absence. The Cardinals started the season 26-32 and looked to be heading to their worst finish in a decade. The trade deadline is still more than six weeks away and most deals don’t happen until teams feel the urgency of late-July. The Cardinals have tried minor, peripheral moves. They’ve released Jonathan Broxton. They’ve sent Randal Grichuk to Triple-A. They’ve brought in guys off the radar like John Brebbia and most recently Chad Huffman. The Cardinals have gone a bit further in shaking things up by reassigning third base...

NL Central: Cards release Jonathan Broxton

NL Central: Cards release Jonathan Broxton

Check out what’s going on in the National League Central. The Cardinals have released Jonathan Broxton in favor of calling up John Gant. The veteran was decent in his past, but this was clearly his time to part with St. Louis as he’d been pitching a 6.89 ERA over 15.2 innings. This comes after the Cardinals previously gave Broxton a two-year guaranteed contract for $7.5 million along with a no-trade clause. Not exactly the smartest of moves. Gant, however, could find himself in a position to be a bullpen regular. Here’s what else is going down in the National League Central: Tommy...

Cardinals release Jonathan Broxton

He hasn’t been good. John Gant called up. The Cardinals have not gotten good results of late, and when that happens sometimes teams shake things up. Randal Grichuk getting sent down to High-A Palm Beach certainly serves a shake up. Releasing a veteran player with a guaranteed contract is another such move. Today, the Cardinals have chosen that route as Jonathan Broxton has been given his unconditional release. As the team always does, they announced the move on a somewhat difficult to read press release where they also announced who Broxton was going to make room for: right John...
