Chiefs sign 3 as they build roster depth

Sports

February 12th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs signed wide receiver Mardy Gilyard, tight end Kevin Brock and defensive end Marcus Dixon on Monday as they attempt to build depth at the bottom of their roster. Kansas City was particularly thin at wide receiver last year, and with the prospect of losing Dwayne Bowe to free agency, new general manager John Dorsey and coach Andy Reid are searching for players who could compete for roster spots next season. Gilyard would fit that mold. He’s a former fourth-round draft pick out of Cincinnati who spent last season with the Jets and Eagles, so Reid has some familiarity with him. Brock appeared in two games two years ago with Buffalo, while Dixon played in 22 games over the past three seasons for the Jets.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Chris Carpenter hasn’t ruled out pitching again, including this year. The 37-year-old Carpenter met with reporters at Busch Stadium on Monday as pitchers and catchers reported to spring training in Jupiter, Fla. Last week, the team all but ruled him out for this year after problems in his right arm. Carpenter is entering the second year of a two-year, $21 million contract and said he owed it the organization to keep trying. But after undergoing an eighth surgery last season, he said there would not be a ninth. Carpenter knew something was wrong a few weeks ago when his hand turned red and purple and was aching soon after he began throwing from a mound.

************

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — Mike Matheny pulled into a parking lot at spring training at 5:30 a.m. Monday, anxious to start his second season as the St. Louis Cardinals manager. He was joined by several pitchers and catchers, one day before the mandatory reporting day in Jupiter, Fla. Matheny says he was impressed by the turnout, which included Yadier Molina and pitchers Adam Wainwright and Jake Westbrook. The Cardinals are coming off a season in which they lost in Game 7 of the NLCS to San Francisco after building a 3-1 series lead. They have since learned that veteran starter Chris Carpenter likely will not pitch this season after experiencing pain in his right arm.

Freese gets $3.15M under 1-year deal with Cards

Sports

February 10th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Former World Series MVP David Freese will earn $3.15 million under his one-year contract with the St. Louis Cardinals, nearly six times the $518,000 he made last year.   A St. Louis County native, Freese hit .283 with 20 home runs and 79 RBIs last season and earned his first All-Star appearance. He was eligible for arbitration for the first time.

Freese, MVP of the 2011 World Series win over Texas, had asked for $3.75 million and had been offered $2.4 million when players and teams exchanged arbitration figures last month.  Friday’s agreement made Freese the final player to settle among the three Cardinals who filed for arbitration.
