According to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch the Cardinals are waiting to see how much Troy Glaus can contribute to the team before deciding whether to deal for a third baseman or rely on the current roster. Brian Barden, Tyler Greene, Brendan Ryan and Joe Thurston are all options for the Cards at third. Brett Wallace, last year's first round draft pick, just started at Triple A and isn't about to be called up soon.
GM John Mozeliak says the team won't look to make a trade until Glaus's future is more certain. However, if Glaus won't be able to contribute, Mozeliak says he has the chips to make a deal.
"Do we have the resources to do it? I think we do."
Cardinals officials were mum on the possibility of acquiring Mark DeRosa from the Indians.
