The Cardinals have designated Chuckie Fick for assignment, the team announced (on Twitter). The move creates room on the 40-man roster for Brian Fuentes, who was added to the big league roster. Victor Marte was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move.
Fick, 26, made his Major League debut with St. Louis earlier this season, allowing one run in 1 2/3 innings across two appearances. The right-hander pitched to a 4.68 ERA with 4.3 K/9 and 2.8 BB/9 in 42 1/3 relief innings for the team's Triple-A affiliate this season.
Noooo, not Chuckie Fick.
So this leaves us w/ 3 lefties out of the pen? Seems like overkill, but I guess it gives MM more options out there. Zep, Browning, and now Fuentes…
Does this mean the Cardinals will “Fick Off” the 40 man roster?
its pissing me off because i havent heard rumors about the cards in weeks.. i really want them to get josh johnson….
Chuckie Fick. I hardly knew you.. er wait. I never heard of you before in my life. He played when? Was I asleep? How did I miss a guy with a name like that?
