Azruavatar did a great job below taking a look at what he thinks will happen once the calendar turns to September and the minor league teams all end their season. The Cardinals only have two healthy minor league pitchers on their 40 man roster and considering how the Cardinals head honcho, Tony LaRussa uses pitchers, I expect more than Dickson and Cleto to be promoted in September. After the jump, let’s look at candidates to be dropped off the 40-man and who could be brought on.

The Cardinals had AA Springfield starting pitcher Brian Broderick taken in the Rule V draft by the Washington Nationals and he was promptly converted to relief in order to attempt to keep him on the roster for the whole season. However, Broderick was released back to the Cardinals last week for a nominal sum and placed in the ailing Memphis bullpen. Broderick was sent back to the Cardinals after posting a 6.57 ERA in 11 relief appearances. However, his numbers were not nearly that bad and were more in line with his career averages. Let’s take a quick look after the jump.

I wanted to link to this report, which was quite detailed and well done; he came away with a higher opinion of Broderick (and higher velocity readings) than I did from a recent game. It’s a good read. To wit:
There’s more over there so be sure to read the full report.
