Redbirds ink a Cuban Pitcher

The Cards signed Dominican right-hander Andres Serrano
for $750K, Ben Badler of Baseball America reports. The
agreement, which dates back to October, is still pending
an MLB investigation into the prospect’s age and identity.

The 17-year-old Serrano stands 6’3” and has a fastball that
clocks in from 90-95 mph. He also has a curveball and
change-up, Badler reports. The bonus would be the highest
of 2011 for a pitcher from the Dominican, assuming MLB
approves the deal.

Cards close to extension with C Yadier Molina

Yadier Molina's agent Melvin Roman said to Ken Rosenthal of
FOX Sports todaythat "We are making progress and hopefully
we can work something out," regarding contract extension talks for
the Redbirds catcher. Rosenthal's sources say the Cards "likely
are willing to give him a deal of 4 and possibly 5 years." The FOX
writer expects a salary in the $10-12MM range.

Report: Cards, Molina agree on extension terms
By Jenifer Langosch / MLB.com | 02/29/12 10:00 AM EST

Yadier Molina led the Cards in batting average in '11 and started more games behind the plate than any catcher in the NL. (AP)

JUPITER, Fla. -- The Cardinals and catcher Yadier Molina reportedly have agreed to terms on a multiyear extension and an announcement appears to be imminent.

The deal is believed to be worth $75 million over five years, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reported on Wednesday. His report followed one by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, which said on Monday that the sides were expected to finalize a deal by the end of the week.

The Cardinals have not confirmed or commented on the reports.

Molina, who is in the final year of his current contract, said eight days ago that he was willing to continue negotiations this spring and that he "would like to work something out and try to stay" in St. Louis.

Molina, 29, will earn $7 million in 2012, the final season of a five-year deal, and he would easily command more than $10 million per year if he were to test the free-agent market next winter.

A four-time Gold Glove Award winner, Molina is coming off the strongest offensive season of his career, having led the team with a .305 batting average, and he started more games behind the plate than any catcher in the National League.

Despite his job security, he arrived at Spring Training camp well in advance of his required report date.

"I can honestly say -- I've watched him for quite a few years now -- I don't think I've ever seen him work like he has," manager Mike Matheny said on Monday. "I just think certain players have the ability to push themselves beyond contracts, beyond recognition. I just think it's something inside of them, that they strive for greatness. For him to be out here in the dark working harder than all these younger kids just shows his makeup."

Well, he made it to the majors when he was 21 so 2012 will be his 9th season already!

I like this deal. They paid him when the time was right--didn't wait too long. The length of the deal ensures he'll be getting paid highly (what he deserves) throughout a productive period in his career.

Carpenter Out Indefinitely
Cardinals righthander Chris Carpenter today finished four days' worth of diagnostic tests with about a half-dozen doctors in St. Louis to determine the cause and potential treatment for a nerve irritation that has weakened his right shoulder.
The good news is that general manager John Mozeliak, who confirmed the nerve irritation this afternoon, said surgery was “not on the table.”
The troubling news is that there is no timetable for Carpenter's return but he certainly won’t be starting the season with the Cardinals and isn’t likely to be pitching for them for at least a couple of months.
That is not Mozeliak’s timetable, but he said that Carpenter would have to strengthen his shoulder before he even could start throwing again.
“We don’t exactly know what that looks like yet,” said Mozeliak, who said he hoped that Carpenter would be back in Cardinals camp in two or three days.
Mozeliak said that the nerve irritation that was found was not related to the bulging disc near Carpenter’s neck that was thought to have been the root of his problems this spring.
Carpenter, who will be 37 next month, was shut down after a batting practice session on March 3 but began throwing in earnest last week and had an impressive session against Cardinals hitters last Sunday.
The next day, Carpenter, feeling weakness in his right shoulder and arm, returned to St. Louis.

Hmm... might be time to take another look at Oswalt.

Redbirds release INF Alex Cora & C Koyie Hill,
also shut down P Chris Carpenter

The Cards announced that they released INF Alex Cora and
C Koyie Hill. The Cardinals signed Cora to a minor league
deal back in February that would have been worth $800K if
he made the big league roster. Hill, who spent 2011 with
the Cubs, hooked on with the Cards in January.

Chris Carpenter has nerve irritation that has caused weakness
in his pitching shoulder and the Cards' ace will be sidelined
indefinitely.

The Cardinals made the announcement Friday, after Carpenter
was evaluated in St. Louis this week. The team says there is
no new nerve injury and the cervical disc injury that occurred
earlier in spring training is a "non-issue."

The 2005 NL Cy Young Award winner is expected back in
camp by Monday, but there is no timetable for his return
to the mound. Carpenter previously had nerve issues in the
shoulder in 2004 when he missed the postseason, and in
2008.

He had been scheduled to pitch on Opening Day, a
spot that will be taken by Kyle Lohse.

Where'd you hear that about Waino? I can't find any reports about it.
