According to Matthew Leach of MLB.com Troy Glaus could start throwing and swinging soon, but with the third baseman's return still six to eight weeks away, Cardinals GM John Mozeliak says he could go outside the organization for help.
"We're going to continue to look, and probably ramp it up a little bit more in terms of intensity," Mozeliak said. "There has been more dialogue already with other clubs. There seems to be a chance that there might be some opportunities as we move forward."
The Cards are encouraged by Glaus' progress, but they're not counting on his return. They'd like to deal for a versatile player, possibly Mark DeRosa, in case Glaus comes back before the season's over and plays third base again. Not only are the Cardinals looking for help, they have permission from ownership to add some payroll.
