looks like cedeno may be dfa. cards picked up a minor league 3b presumably to take seabol's old spot in memphis. if seabol has a spot on the big league roster that leaves no room for cedeno. seabol has been getting some time in the outfield. on a related note, it seems the cards have been more willing to call up inexperienced players this year than ever before. they gave journal and cali a decent look and have used thomson and seabol. gave a short look to schumaker. in years past except for thompson they probably wouldnt have even brought those guys up in september.


Cards pick up 3B; Cedeno to learn fate soon

The Cardinals have acquired third baseman Tim Hummel from the Boston organization and assigned him to Class AAA Memphis.

Hummel, 26, was hitting .250 with a .341 on-base percentage for Pawtucket, the Red Sox’s Class AAA affiliate. He was obtained for future considerations.

Hummel, who had 56 hits for Pawtucket, including 23 for extra bases, could move into the third base spot at Memphis vacated by Scott Seabol, who has been with the Cardinals since May 12.

Acquiring Hummel hints at how Seabol has solidified his spot on the Cardinals’ bench, as has his remaining beyond Scott Rolen’s return and his learning to play outfield.

Meanwhile, Cardinals general manager Walt Jocketty is in Memphis this weekend to see the Redbirds.

Outfielder Roger Cedeño, on a minor-league rehab assignment in Memphis, could have his spot in the organization settled soon.

Cedeño, who is rehabbing a hamstring strain, had four hits in his first 23 at-bats with the Redbirds, for a .174 average. That’s not too far off his
performance with the Cardinals before the injury.

Time’s ticking on his rehab assignment and if the Cardinals opt not to put Cedeño on the roster -- preferring, say, to keep Seabol as a bat off the bench -- they could designate him for assignment. That sets him up to be traded or released.

I think Seabol can help this club, at least be a bigger help than Cedeno. If he turns into the right handed power bat we need, and costs little to no extra cash, well welcome Seabol!
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

well this is interesting:

Luna will get call, Seabol will go down

La Russa announced after the game that Hector Luna will be called up from Memphis today and Scott Seabol will be sent down. The move is designed more to get another shortstop on the roster than a reflection of Seabol's play. Luna will provide more relief for shortstop David Eckstein, especially with the hot weather in St. Louis recently.
