St Louis Die Hards  > Group Message Board  > Lugo and the Final Roster
April 1, 2010, 11:19 AM
Julio Lugo has been traded to Baltimore for a player to be named. This clears the way for an additional hitter to make the final roster or possibly another trade is in the works to bring in some bench help.

With Lugo gone, the Cards could opt to take both Nick Stavinoha and Allen Craig north with the team, or Tyler Greene could make it as a reserve infielder.

With the uncertainty surrounding injuries in the catching position, I still look for them to take only two catchers.

With 12 pitchers, a backup catcher and the regular 8 starting lineup, there are four bench spots remaining:

Lopez
Mather
and right now 2 of Greene, Stavinoha and Craig.

Of course there could always be surprises. Hopefully that comes in the form of a late trade that brings some left handed power to the bench.
