The list of potential Redbirds got a little longer today as the Cardinals optioned eight players, trimming their Spring Training roster down to 37 players. Among those players re-assigned to minor league camp were pitchers Clayton Mortensen, Adam Ottavino, Jess Todd, and infielder Allen Craig. Outfielder Brian Barton and pitchers Mitchell Boggs, Charlie Manning and Matt Scherer were also optioned by St. Louis. Be sure to keep up with us as more information comes trickling out of Florida and Opening Day gets closer.
In our ongoing quest to conquer the Internet, the Redbirds are pleased to announce that we have set up a brand new Twitter account. This will hopefully enable us to distribute even more information as quickly as possible. Feel free to use the area as a platform to let us know your opinions on what is going on with the team as the season gets underway and what information is important to you. As always, for any news regarding the Redbirds and what all is happening this season, check out our main page at memphisredbirds.com.
