The Cardinals are "considering a roster move before tonight’s game against Houston that could bring clarity to veteran Ty Wigginton’s role with the club and reshape the club’s bench," sources tell Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. A minor league assignment for Wigginton is among a handful of options the club is exploring, writes Goold.
Wigginton, 35, signed a two-year, $5MM deal with the Cardinals in December. He's hitting .158/.238/.193 in 63 plate appearances, however, and playing time has been scarce. The Cardinals' bench consists of backup catcher Tony Cruz, plus Matt Adams, Daniel Descalso, Shane Robinson, and Wigginton.
