The last time he was actually good was 2012. Missed 6 entire seasons with arm injuries.

Pick him up and see what Dunc can do with him.

Who should the Cardinals target to fix their rotation? Which of their hitting prospects do they part with?

Craig Edwards

Everyone? Bumgarner, Stroman, , Sanchez, Minor, Keuchel, bring back Lance Lynn. The Cardinals really need help in their rotation. As for prospects, I think the Cardinals would prefer to hold on to Knizner, Gorman, and Carlson so that means, Hudson, O'Neill and any of the pitchers and outfielders in Triple-A could be parted with. It also means they might not outbid other teams desperate for pitching who really want to win this

stl rotation is really bad eh?

getting a lot of questions on the cardinals rotation. I think Flaherty and Mikolas will be good, but Wainwright is the team's third best pitcher when he's more suited to a five-spot while Hudson has been okay lately, but has to not give up homers to be successful with his poor strikeout and walk rates, which isn't something you can count on. Wacha just isn't getting outs right now and his velocity has completely deteriorated. The Cardinals really could use Martinez or Reyes and probably both in the rotation if they are going to fix this without going outside the organization and that's a big ask.

2019 staff chasing the worst Cardinal pitching season of all time. Very well could finish in top 10. Dating back to 1882.

Matt: If Dakota Hudson shows some improved command, what are your thoughts on him? Sinker, Slider, Cutter pitchers are rare as starters, but his cutter shows curveball like movement(classified as a curve by statcast)

Craig Edwards: Even in this good stretch for Hudson, he isn’t striking out many hitters and walking too many for that amount of strikeouts. He’s been good of late because he’s only allowed a single homer this month. Even if he posts a 60% GB rate, he’s not going to keep that up and the free baserunners could cost him. He looks to be settling in as a solid fifth starter, but this month isn’t sustainable. He should be able to miss bats with his arsenal, but he just isn’t doing it, which has been the case throughout his pro career. Something could still flip, but he’s not going to be more than a backend starter until something changes.
John: What are your thoughts on the Cards implementing a version of The Opener this year? There’s no way they can keep running out Wacha and Waino every 5th day.

Craig Edwards: They aren’t running Wacha out there anymore and after yesterday, it’s hard to see him regaining form this season. I think the Cardinals do have some arms that could make the opener work. Guys like Cabrera, Ponce De Leon, Gomber once off the DL, even Gant might not be ready or good enough to turn over a lineup, but going once through the order might make sense for them. They really need to hope Reyes can get back and that Martinez can build up innings to get back in the rotation. Even then, they still might need a Kuechel/Bumgarner/Stroman type to get back to the playoffs. They are a good team, but this May has put them behind teams they need to catch up to, and those teams are just as good as the Cardinals.
