Mike Maroth Released

According to Brian Walton, Mike Maroth has been released by the St. Louis Cardinals.   After a strong start vs. the Mets in his Cardinal’ debut, Maroth really stunk it up.  I really think he was hurt, but now it will be someone else’s problem.

Jarrett Hoffpauir was the only Cardinal in action in the Arizona Fall league.  Hoff had a hit a walk, and 2 runs scored. 

Project Prospect has its Top 75 list out and the Cardinals made a big splash.  Colby was rated as the number 2 prospect in all of baseball.  Left handed pitcher Jaime Garcia was rated number 64.  Bryan Anderson was rated number 66 (of note he was the number 3 rated catcher on the list). 

Also in the desert, Blake Dewitt was in the lineup at firstbase.  Blake had 3 hits including a double. 

Check out Bryan Anderson’s journal at the Team USA website.

  1. Wow, Rasmus #2 overall? That’s pretty impressive and something this system hasn’t seen in a while. It’s still not overflowing, but it’s nice to see some reasonable prospects in the minors.

  2. Not only is he a really good player but he is a good kid as well. I had a chance to talk to him and he was really down to earth. I hope he continues to make strides and becomes an All-Star.
