"That’s what he was signed for," general manager John Mozeliak said of Ellis, who will make $5.25 million this year. "To give us that production, so we’ll take advantage of it."

The 36-year-old Ellis battled a knee injury in the spring but now feels ready for regular duty. He went 2 for 5 in Monday's loss to Milwaukee, raising his average to .160.

"Coming over here, I knew what I was getting into," Ellis said. "It’s unfortunate for Kolten that it hasn’t worked out well so far, not that it’s going to kill his career, by any means."


Kolten Wong still ceding time to Mark Ellis


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2014) Cardinals infielder Kolten Wong is back in the lineup Monday against the Mets, after sitting out the team's previous two games. Veteran Mark Ellis started in Wong's place, and manager Mike Matheny told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Monday Ellis' track record plays a part in why he keeps turning his way.

"We have a known quantity in Mark Ellis," Matheny said. "When he's going right and we can fit him in there and the matchup looks good, it's an easy day to give to him. Kolten is one of those great expectations-type players. He's shown so much of what he can do. We have to take advantage of days when he doesn't look right so we don’t just beat him up."

Wong has struggled to open the season, hitting just .237/.297/.288, though he has appeared in 17 of the team's 20 games so far.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
