Weaver Likely To Join Cardinals

Tuesday, March 11, 2008

According to one NL executive, the recent setback of Cardinals pitcher Joel Pineiro will likely lead to the Cardinals giving Jeff Weaver a minor league deal. Weaver, who was the Cardinals hero back in 2006, has struggled in the past two seasons. The Nationals are believed to be interested, but he has a better chance to make the Cardinals roster because they only have four starters, and Mark Mulder is not likely to be ready until mid-May. The Los Angeles Times talked to Jered Weaver and he said that his brother has been working and would be ready for Opening Day, but I wonder if he can bounce back from a poor season. If the Orioles cannot sign Kyle Lohse, they are believed to be considered Weaver among fall back canidates.
