MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - With the hot stove league coming up for Major League Baseball, the St. Louis Cardinals are preparing for big changes to their roster - and it involves some popular former Memphis Redbirds.
The Cards said they’re not picking up contract renewals on all-star catcher Yadier Molina, Gold Glove infielder Kolten Wong, and pitcher Adam Wainwright. All three will become free agents.
Also, St. Louis general manager, John Mozeliak, said for the first time, the Cardinals should not have traded former Redbird Randy Arozarena before last season. The outfielder went on to become ALCS MVP in leading the Tampa Bay Rays to the World Series.
