The Call-Up: Randal Grichuk

0

Mark Anderson and Craig Goldstein

Looking for a boost at the plate, the Cardinals turn to the prospect they acquired from the Angels for David Freese.

The Situation: With the Cardinals offense continuing to struggle, posting just a .242 batting average to date, the club made some moves looking for a spark. Calling up Greg Garcia and Randal Grichuk could give the Cardinals the boost they need to get their offense rolling in support of a pitching staff that has posted a cumulative 2.76 ERA through the season’s first 26 games.

Background: Possibly known better for being the player the Angels took one pick before popping Mike Trout, Grichuk was a legitimate first-round selection in his own right. After raking in the Arizona League in 2009 and 2010, Grichuk kept right on hitting after a promotion to Low-A Cedar Rapids, posting a .292 average in 52 games during his first full-season experience. Grichuk battled injuries in 2011, and then put up a California League-bolstered .298/.335/.488 line in 135 games, as he regained his prospect stock in 2012. The 2013 season saw Grichuk struggle at times, as he garnered his first exposure to higher-level pitching. In the end, Grichuk managed to pop 22 home runs and rip 27 doubles en route to a .780 OPS with Double-A Arkansas. An off-season trade sent Grichuk to the Cardinals in exchange for third baseman David Freese, and in his first 21 Triple-A games, Grichuk has hit .310 with eight doubles and three home runs.

Painting the Black: Up and Adams

3

R.J. Anderson

Will Matt Adams be the next Cardinals part-timer to turn into a star?

You know how Earl Weaver used to break his starters in as relievers? Lately the Cardinals have employed a similar approach with their position players. St. Louis has initiated its youth in bench roles, then pushed them into everyday duty after they're acclimated to the majors. This practice has played to perfection in each of the past three seasons.

And not because it's about the Cardinals.

I envy Sam Miller. He got to hold it in his hands. It. The book. That one. The Cardinal Way. I feel like I should whisper when I say its name. It might give me a magic power. Suddenly, I’ll be able to hit like Albert Pujols. Oh, right.

In which Doug discovers mechanical connections between the pitchers on the Nats, Cardinals, Marlins, and other teams.

I spent most of the winter in hibernation, buried within the cozy confines of my baseball-analysis den and wading through a sea of pitchers. I'm happy to say that the seeds of thought that were planted in the final weeks of 2013 are now bearing fruit, as the 2014 Starting Pitcher Guide that Paul Sporer and I produced was released last week and covers close to 400 pitchers throughout the professional ranks. This was my second year contributing mechanical reports to the Guide, and I thoroughly enjoyed the arduous-yet-rewarding process as well as the pitching discussions that were generated as a result (and which can be heard on the latest episode of TINSTAAPP).

The Cardinals add even more depth with Mark Ellis, the Indians make an Indians-esque signing with John Axford, and the Pirates bring back Clint Barmes.
