The St Louis Cardinals need help on the pitching side of things and they are looking all over. One name they are after could be Brad Peacock. The St Louis Cardinals are looking for pitching depth, expressing interest in right-hander Shelby Miller, and they should not stop there. In fact, there is a prime candidate nearing a return who could contribute meaningful innings come later in the season.
The last few weeks have seen quite a bit of activity on the pitching free agent market, with teams scrambling to snap up arms from the dwindling pool of impact hurlers. Even with the transactions of the New Year, a handful of pitchers still remain, from Trevor Bauer at the top of the heap to the likes of James Paxton and Jake Odorizzi hoping to bounce back from injury-shortened 2020 seasons, on all the way down to the minor league and non-roster invitee types. Given the Yankees’ self-imposed budgetary situation, it is from this final group that the next New York signing is likely to come.
