The Nooner #12: DeRosa Update and latest article link
Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post Dispatch just posted to his forum that new Cardinal Mark DeRosa will be placed on the DL. I’ll post updates as I can find them, but needless to say this is less than good news for a team trying to hold on to first place in the NL Central.
EDIT: The P-D has an update; DeRosa is on the 15-day DL with a wrist strain. The move is retroactive to July 1. Read the entire brief here.
So it looks like the Cards will be without the services of DeRosa until after the All Star Break. And the timing couldn’t be worse with the team’s next seven games being against the Milwaukee Brewers and Chicago Cubs. Let’s hope the Redbirds can get to the Break still in first place.
Also, as you may or may not know I’ve been writing a weekly Cardinals column (with some music entries as well) over at www.insidestl.com. My column posts on Sundays, and I’ll link to it (or maybe just copy and paste it) on this page shortly after. Take a look at my latest post here.
