Cubs recall Volstad to make start against Braves

Sports

July 4th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ATLANTA (AP) — The Chicago Cubs optioned Casey Coleman to Triple-A Iowa to clear a roster spot for Chris Volstad, who was recalled from Iowa to start Tuesday night’s game against the Atlanta Braves. Coleman was 0-1 with a 7.32 ERA and allowed 13 earned runs in his last seven appearances. The right-hander gave up seven earned runs, his career-high as a reliever, in last Wednesday’s 17-1 loss to the Reds. Volstad, a right-hander, is 0-6 with a 7.46 ERA in eight starts with the Cubs. He was optioned to Iowa on May 18. He was 2-3 with a 4.44 ERA in eight starts with Iowa. The 25-year-old Volstad is 32-45 in his career, including four seasons with Florida.

Chris Carpenter to undergo season-ending surgery

Sports

July 4th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Chris Carpenter will undergo season-ending surgery to repair a nerve issue in his shoulder that has sidelined him since spring training. The 37-year-old Carpenter wants to continue pitching. He’s been told the surgery to relieve compressed nerves in the shoulder could allow him to resume his career, although there are no guarantees. The Cardinals had been optimistic Carpenter would pitch after the All-Star break until recently. A bullpen throwing session was cancelled on Monday because strength had not returned to the shoulder, and now the team is optimistic Carpenter will be ready for spring training. General manager John Mozeliak said Tuesday that recovery time is three to six months. The surgery will be performed on July 19 in Dallas.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jeff Francis worked five solid innings before the Colorado bullpen took over and Tyler Colvin hit a three-run homer as the Rockies beat the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2 on Tuesday night. Matt Holliday hit his 14th homer for the Cardinals. Carlos Beltran was 0 for 3 with a walk to end a nine-game RBI streak in which he drove in 15 runs. Matt Belisle retired four in a row to end the eighth, the biggest out coming on Holliday’s groundout with two runners on. Rafael Betancourt worked out of trouble in the ninth for his 13th save in 17 chances. He had blown three of his last five save opportunities, but got Jon Jay to look at strike three with two on for the final out.

July 3rd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Allen Craig hit a pair home runs, Carlos Beltran extended his RBI streak to a major league high nine games and Kyle Lohse worked into the eighth inning of the St. Louis Cardinals’ 9-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Monday night. Matt Holliday had a homer and sacrifice fly and Jon Jay doubled and walked twice with a steal for the Cardinals, who punished a pitching staff that entered the game with a major league-worst 5.37 ERA. Tyler Colvin and Wilin Rosario homered for the Rockies, who have dropped five of seven. Rosario homered for the third straight game, but Colorado pitchers totaled four wild pitches, eight walks and an error that allowed a run. Beltran, an NL All-Star game starter picked to participate in the home run derby, leads the league with 63 RBIs. He has 15 RBIs during the streak.

Berkman expects to be back soon after break

Sports

July 2nd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Lance Berkman expects to be back in the St. Louis Cardinals’ lineup soon after the All-Star break. Maybe even the first day back. The first baseman has been sidelined since undergoing left knee surgery in late May that turned out to be relatively minor. Berkman said Monday that swelling was minimal after the procedure and he began running a week ago, and said his rehab was right on schedule. The switch-hitting Berkman took 25 swings of soft toss from each side several hours before Monday’s game against the Colorado Rockies. He’ll have to get into baseball shape before taking a rehab assignment and manager Mike Matheny said Berkman hasn’t done much side to side movement yet. The Cardinals’ first game after the break is July 13 at Cincinnati. Berkman joked that Allen Craig has done so well starting at first base that he may come back as a pinch hitter.
