St. Louis Cardinals Roster Report 2009-04-10

St. Louis Cardinals Roster Report 2009-04-10
The Cardinals made it through spring training with no significant pitching injuries other than the shoulder discomfort experienced by RHP Chris Perez, costing him two weeks of work and ultimately his spot on the roster. 3B Troy Glaus, who had arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder in January, didn't progress as quickly as hoped, and he might not be back before July.


--LHP Dennys Reyes, working a perfect ninth inning Thursday, picked up his first save since 1999, when he had his other two saves with Cincinnati. The year before, while pitching for the Reds, Reyes had given up Mark McGwire's 60th homer.

--RF Ryan Ludwick extended his hitting streak to 14 games, in a carryover from last season, with a seventh-inning single.

--CF Rick Ankiel didn't start, meaning that each of the Cardinals' four outfielders -- Ankiel, Chris Duncan, Ryan Ludwick and Colby Rasmus -- had one start off in the first series of the year.

--The Cardinals' last nine-inning one-hitter was by RHP Chris Carpenter on June 14, 2005, when he beat Toronto in a complete game.


3B Troy Glaus (right shoulder surgery in January 2009) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to March 27. He didn't heal as quickly as was hoped, and he may not play before July.

LHP Jaime Garcia (Tommy John elbow surgery in September 2008) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to March 27. He likely will miss all or nearly all of the 2009 season.
