Cardinals Spring Training: St. Louis cuts three more players from major-league camp

New, comments

I'm still Looney for Cooney™, even if the lefty has been relegated to minor-league camp.

Brad Barr-USA TODAY Sports

After getting a St. Patrick's Day drubbing from the Boston Red Sox Monday, the St. Louis Cardinals announced a further thinning of the herd. The following players have been reassigned to minor-league camp:

  • Tim Cooney, LHP
  • Lee Stoppelman, LHP
  • Travis Tartamella, C

None of these players being relegated to minor-league camp is surprising. Cooney will continue to prepare for the Triple-A starting rotation. Stoppelman was never going to beat one of the lefties already on the 40-man roster for an opening-day bullpen role. Tartamella was in big-league camp primarily to help get pitchers ready by catching sessions. None of the three players are on the Cardinals 40-man roster, so no options were used.
