I chatted with Cardinals GM John Mozeliak earlier today to talk about the acquisition of starting pitcher Justin Masterson from Cleveland, and what it means moving forward for the club.
The St. Louis Cardinals announced this afternoon that they have acquired right-handed starting pitcher Justin Masterson from the Cleveland Indians in exchange for Springfield (AA) outfielder James Ramsey.
The Redbirds took a pitcher & outfielder in the opening round of the MLB Draft. Kerber & Claiborne introduced them to Cardinal Nation.
With the 36th pick, the Cardinals took Stanford third baseman Stephen Piscotty, who won the Cape Cod League batting title last summer.
This is the first time since 2005 that the Cardinals have received multiple 1st round picks.
