Cardinals could look to add right fielder in offseason
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(11/10/14) Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said Sunday at the general managers' meetings in Arizona the team could look to right-field options outside the organization in the wake of the tragedy involving Oscar Taveras, according to MLB.com.
Mozeliak talked about Randal Grichuk and Stephen Piscotty being internal options as well.
"I think it certainly leaves that position in question," Mozeliak said. "Clearly internally, we have Grichuk and potentially Piscotty to fill that spot. I would also say that it does now force us to explore other options, whether it's the free-agent market or the trade market. Really, this past week and [this] week will be groundwork to see if something like that is possible.
"I'm not saying it's a must, but I also think we need to be prudent and make sure that we understand what that landscape looks like. When you look at sort of what Grichuk did and you look at Piscotty's inexperience at the big leagues, if our goal is to try and find ways to get an uptick in offense, we do have to explore it."
Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk homers in Game 3 NLCS loss
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(10/14/14) Cardinals outfielder Randal Grichuk went 1 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 5-4, 10-inning loss to the Giants in Game 3 of the NLCS, which put the Cardinals behind in the series 2-1.
Grichuk put the finishing touches on a Cardinals rally after the Giants jumped out to a 4-0 first-inning lead by slugging a solo home run to left field in the seventh inning. It's his second home run of the postseason, but the rookie is just 5 for 27 in seven postseason games.
Randal Grichuk homers in Game 1 win vs. Dodgers
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(10/3/14) Cardinals right fielder Randal Grichuk went 1 for 4 with a walk and a solo home run in his team's 10-9 win over the Dodgers Friday in Game 1 of the National League Division Series.
Grichuk smacked his home run in the first inning, and it was the only hit Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw allowed before giving up another home run with two outs in the sixth and coming apart in the game-changing eight-run seventh inning. The rookie managed just three home runs in 110 regular-season at-bats while posting a .245/.278/.400 line.
Randal Grichuk destined to play often against lefties
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(9/3/14) Mike Matheny has indicated that Cardinals rookie outfielder Randal Grichuk, who has come on strong in his second stint in the bigs, is slated to receive plenty of at-bats against left-handers down the stretch, per the Belleville News Democrat.
Grichuk is only 8 for 43 against southpaws on the season, but has eight hits in his last 20 at-bats overall. He hit .325 with 12 home runs in 123 at-bats against lefties this season at Triple-A Memphis.
Randal Grichuk gets the call
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(8/26/14) The Cardinals recalled outfielder Randal Grichuk from Triple-A Memphis Tuesday, to replace Shane Robinson on the active roster.
Grichuk appeared in 19 games with the Cardinals earlier in the season, hitting just .136/.191/.273 in 44 at-bats. Prior to his recall, Grichuk was hitting .259 with a team-high 25 home runs at Memphis.
|2014 summary: Playing in mostly hitter-friendly environments, Randal Grichuk has put up some impressive power numbers the last three years, including a career-high 25 homers at Triple-A Memphis last year. He hit three more at the major-league level, but his shortcomings were just as evident. He delivered a .245 batting average and .678 OPS in 110 at-bats.|
Playing time status: With poor plate discipline and little potential for batting average -- a .259 mark over a full season in the Pacific Coast League doesn't inspire much confidence -- Grichuk may never be more than a reserve in the big leagues, but capable center fielders with pop don't come along every day. Jon Jay and Peter Bourjos are both safer bets to make the roster, but Grichuk will be part of that mix if he also makes the cut.
2015 outlook: Though he's had the "prospect" label attached to him at times, Grichuk's best traits in the minors were all inflated by environment, and his position in the Cardinals' outfield pecking order gives a pretty good indication of what they think of him. You could stash him in a deeper NL-only league just in case he plays more than expected in center field, but even if he does, you should expect only modest numbers.
