The Cardinals, at least for now, are showing no interest in Red Sox starter Jake Peavy.
The Cardinals know that they are one good starter away from being a championship caliber team and they will do everything in their power to get to the next level. They certainly have to ammo in their farm system to make a move for a top pitcher, but that clearly isn't what Peavy is at this point in his career. Although the Cardinals coaching staff has been known for saving careers of washed up pitchers, adding Peavy would be more of a last resort at this point. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Marc Krauss went 1-for-4 with a solo home run on Thursday in Toronto.
Krauss is hitting only .150 with a .350 slugging percentage after launching his first home run of the season. It was just his seventh game of the season, but there’s no doubt he’ll need to cut down on the strikeouts if he’s ever going to be able to showcase the decent pop he has. The left-handed hitter was called up from AAA to try and infuse some offense in Anaheim and was slugging .639 over his past 10 games. With Matt Joyce really struggling, expect Krauss to steal some of his at-bats over the next few weeks. Analysis: Kevin Luchansky
