According to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Cardinals made an offer to lefty reliever Arthur Rhodes. Rhodes’ agent says nine teams expressed interest, and a handful made offers. More offers are forthcoming for the 39 year-old.
Cardinals GM John Mozeliak continues to hammer out the details of a contract with Trever Miller; he hopes to add two lefties to the pen.
Goold says the Cardinals are also considering two righthanded relievers in Brandon Lyon and Jason Isringhausen. Three other teams have expressed interest in Isringhausen, who would like to regain his job as the Cardinals’ closer.
The Cardinals remain in the mix for Edgar Renteria, and they’ll be consulted before a deal is finalized with any other team. They’ll wait until after the December 1st deadline for offering arbitration.
