Prospect Parisi impressing this spring
(3/17/2008) Right-hander Mike Parisi, a top prospect and the likely ace at Triple-A Memphis, threw in a simulated game Monday and pitching coach Duncan was impressed. "He's going to pitch in the big leagues," Duncan said. "I don't know when it's going to be, but he's got big league stuff."
(3/11/2008) The only Cardinals rotational givens for the start of the season are Adam Wainwright and Braden Looper. Matt Clement just began throwing batting practice a few days ago, pitching coach Dave Duncan doesn't expect Joel Pineiro (shoulder) to be ready from the beginning, and a rosy scenario for Mark Mulder (shoulder) would be May. "I would be lying if I said I wasn't concerned," Duncan said Tuesday. "But am I panicking? No. I know when the season starts there will be five guys in our rotation, and we'll feel like they are five guys that give us a chance to win." Todd Wellemeyer and Brad Thompson are likely to fill two openings, with Anthony Reyes the front-runner for the fifth spot at the start of the year. Pitching prospects Mike Parisi and Kyle McClellan are also in the mix. "The situation is what it is," Duncan said. "It probably means that more likely than not, decisions will be made later in the spring than you would like to make them."
Parisi solid after rough first inning
(3/5/2008)Mike Parisi made his first spring start for St. Louis during Wednesday's game against the Nationals and allowed three runs (two earned) in the first inning before pitching a scoreless second and third. Shortstop Cesar Izturis' error, his second of the spring, accounted for one of the runs. Parisi allowed four hits. "I thought he did a very good job of keeping his composure," La Russa said. "He ended up having a good outing."
