We learned yesterday that Brian Fuentes is a priority for the Cardinals. Tonight, however, ESPN’s Steve Phillips reports that the Cards’ negotiations with Fuentes have slowed. Two new unknown suitors have entered the picture. Word was yesterday that Fuentes could snag a three-year, $33MM deal, even though Francisco Rodriguez was guaranteed only $4MM more. John Mozeliak told MLB.com’s Matthew Leach the Cards would be extremely hesitant to commit $10MM+ to a reliever.
