Maroth Dealt to Cardinals

Friday, June 22, 2007

Just daysafter claiming Tomo Okha off of waivers, the Cardinals made a deal to acquire Tigers' lefty Mike Maroth. Details on the deal are forthcoming. Maroth was 5-2 with a 5.06 ERA in 13 starts thus far but with Kenny Rogers' return to the rotation a trade seemed necessary. The Cardinals are in desperate need of pitching help, with the back end of their rotation, Kip Wells and Anthony Reyes, a combined 2-19 thus far. The Cardinals rotation has an NL worst 5.63 ERA.
