Cardinals Seek Pitching Depth

The Cardinals have already acquired their share of pitching this winter. They signed Jake Westbrook, Brian Tallet and Raul Valdes and claimed Bryan Augenstein, but they aren't done yet. The team is looking for a number six starter or a big league reliever, according to Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (on Twitter).

The team isn't desperate for relievers or starters, though. They have Westbrook, Chris Carpenter, Adam Wainwright, Jaime Garcia and Kyle Lohse, so their rotation is set. Tallet and Trever Miller are the only left-handed relievers on the Cardinals' 40-man roster, so it wouldn't be surprising to see the club add a southpaw eventually.
