JUPITER, Fla - Just over a week remains before the Cardinals start the 2013 regular season in Arizona and they now can say everyone is back in camp. Yadier Molina and Carlos Beltran returned yesterday following their stint in the World Baseball Classic.
But only one finds himself in today's lineup.
Molina will bat fourth and catch while Beltran sits out with a sore toe that continues to bother him this spring. That means even more at-bats for 20-year old phenom Oscar Taveras, who will play right field.
Lance Lynn gets the ball as he builds his pitch count towards the 100 he'll need once the regular season begins.
1) Daniel Descalso - 2B 2) Oscar Taveras - RF 3) Matt Holliday - LF 4) Yadier Molina - C 5) Matt Adams - 1B 6) Ty Wigginton - 3B 7) Adron Chambers - CF 8) Pete Kozma - SS 9) Lance Lynn - P
Following Lance Lynn out of the bullpen is lefty Randy Choate along with righties Trevor Rosenthal, Fernando Salas, Maikel Cleto and Mitchell Boggs.
