Cardinals agreed to a two-year contract extension with Senior VP and GM John Mozeliak through the 2018 season.
Considering the success of the franchise in recent years under Mozeliak, this seemed like a no-brainer for Cardinals ownership. He's done an outstanding job with the team at the big league level while maintaining a high-end farm system with a strong crop of youngsters. The Cardinals are one of those organizations you see in contention every year and Mozeliak is a big reason for that.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Kendrys Morales went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored in the Royals 7-1 win over the Twins on Monday.
Morales is raking to start the season, hitting .358 with 12 runs, two home runs and nine RBI as the Royals everyday DH and cleanup hitter. 2014 was a lost year for Morales as he struggled to find a role with the Mariners and Twins but he showed capable of being a productive player over the two seasons prior where he hits a combined 45 home runs over the two years. Morales was one of the more promising offensive players in the league before a devastating ankle injury nearly ended his career in 2010 but if his hot start is any indication of things to come those who took a chance on Kendrys could be in for a solid season.
