The St. Louis Cardinals will need to drop a player from its 25-man active roster when adding Wednesday’s starting pitcher Tyler Lyons. The latter will be taking the place of Jaime Garcia, put on the 15-day disabled list over the weekend, with reliever Mitchell Boggs re-called from Memphis.
The purpose of this poll is to allow you to speculate as to who will be moved off the active roster. It seems almost a certainty that it will be a member of the current bullpen. I am leaving off Edward Mujica and Randy Choate, but listing the other six relievers.
It could be a bullpen-to-bullpen move or it could be a pitcher who had been a starter before advancing to the majors returning to that role. The intent could be to get him tuned up for a potential return to St. Louis when another rotation opening presents itself.
