David Wells’ agent, Gregg Clifton, reached out to the Cardinals recently to see if his client could assist them with their early season rotation uncertainty. It’s been said that Boomer, 44, is looking to make about 20 starts this year. He earned $3MM in ’07.
Derrick Goold says the Cardinals prefer their in-house options over Wells. What does PECOTA have to say about this?
David Wells – 4.55 ERA
Anthony Reyes – 4.32 ERA
Brad Thompson – 4.29 ERA
Todd Wellemeyer – 4.39 ERA
Seems the Cardinals are on track with this one. I’m sure they’d be ecstatic to get those ERAs out of that trio. Goold says the Cards will continue to track free agents. Kyle Lohse and Jeff Weaver are two who are healthy right now, if nothing else. As for Roger Clemens, the Cards aren’t terribly interested given Clemens’ probable late start.
