Cardinals Claim John Gaub Off Waivers

The Cardinals have claimed left-hander John Gaub off of waivers from the Rangers, according to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram (via Twitter).  Gaub was designated for assignment on Thursday to create room on the 40-man roster for Tanner Scheppers.

The 27-year-old posted a 3.42 ERA with 12.2 K/9 and 6.5 BB/9 in 50 Triple-A appearances for the Cubs last season.  Gaub pitched in 16 games for the Rays' Triple-A affiliate and 5 for the Rangers' Triple-A team this year.

This is probably just for minor league depth in the Memphis Redbird bullpen.

Except that the Memphis bullpen is overrun with lefties. Browning, Greenwood, Zavada and Gast.

I covered John Gaub when he pitched at the University of Minnesota. Good pitcher.

Cardinals are active. Garcia going down really changes things. If he can’t come back this season….damn. Well, lets see what Joe Kelly will do in his major league debut. Go caads.

6.5 BB/9 is stunning.  And not in a good way.
