Cardinals: Mozeliak to president, Girsch To Vp/Gm

ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Cardinals announced Friday afternoon that John Mozeliak has been promoted to President of Baseball Operations for the team, while Michael Girsch has been promoted to Vice-President & General Manager of the club. Both Mozeliak and Girsch have agreed to contracts that will run through the 2020 season.

"It is as important to maintain outstanding talent in the front office as it is on the playing field," said Bill DeWitt Jr., Principal Owner and Chief Executive Officer of the St. Louis Cardinals. "Our success as an organization is built upon our continuity in leadership and today’s announcement ensures we keep two of the best young talents in our game for years to come."

While other Major League Clubs have had Presidents of Baseball Operations, today’s announcement is a first for the Cardinals and is in keeping with an industry that continues to grow and prosper. As President of Baseball Operations, Mozeliak will be responsible for the department, while Girsch will handle the day to day work of the team as the General Manager.

"Mike Girsch is more than ready to take over the daily operations of this department, while I am excited to focus on more strategic goals of the organization," said Mozeliak, President of Baseball Operations for the St. Louis Cardinals. "Our entire group is fortunate to work for Bill DeWitt Jr, a visionary leader who has invested heavily in creating an organization that values innovation and demands excellence in every aspect of its operations."

Mozeliak, 48, is a 22-year veteran of the Cardinals front office who has served as the team’s General Manager for ten seasons (2008-2017). During his tenure as General Manager, the Cardinals have advanced to the postseason six times, winning a World Championship in 2011, and the National League Championship in 2013. The Cardinals have twice been recognized by Baseball America as the Organization of the Year (2011 & 2013). The prestigious honor recognized the Cardinals for their success in scouting and player development. Mozeliak was named Executive of the Year in 2011 by MLB.com.

"I look forward to working with Mo, Bill and our entire team to bring another World Championship to St. Louis," said Girsch, General Manager "I have enjoyed the opportunity to work directly with Mo and Bill, and I am looking forward to this new challenge. "

Girsch, 41, is an 11-year veteran of the Cardinals front office who has served as the team’s Assistant General Manager for seven seasons (2011 – 2017). As the team’s Assistant General Manager, Girsch assisted Mozeliak with Major League player transactions and player evaluations, and helps oversee all aspects of Baseball Operations, including amateur and pro scouting, player development, international operations and baseball development. Girsch joined the Cardinals in 2006, starting his career with a two year stint as the Coordinator of Amateur Scouting. In 2008, he was named Director of Baseball Development, and focused on assisting Baseball Operations via internet applications, analytical models and decision support tools. He led the department for three years before his promotion to Assistant General Manager in January 2011.

Prior to joining the Cardinals, Girsch earned a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics from the University of Notre Dame and an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. Girsch and his wife Kelly, reside in Webster Groves with their four children.

Cards ink Stephen Piscotty to multi-year pact

ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Cardinals announced Monday that they have agreed to terms with outfielder Stephen Piscotty on a six-year contract (2017-2022) that includes a club option for the 2023 season. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.

"Having Stephen Piscotty join a number of our current players who are also under contract into the foreseeable future allows us to continue to maintain the level of consistency that has been so important to our organization’s success," stated Cardinals’ Chairman Bill Dewitt, Jr.

With today’s signing, Piscotty joins eight of his current teammates who are also under contract thru at least the 2020 season - Matt Carpenter, Brett Cecil, Dexter Fowler, Jedd Gyorko, Mike Leake, Carlos Martinez, Yadier Molina and Kolten Wong.

"Stephen is a steady player, who we feel embodies the consistent, hard-working style that will be a constant in our lineup for many years to come," said Cardinals’ Senior Vice President/General Manager John Mozeliak. "He is always looking to grow and develop his game and has already exhibited the strong traits of a leader."

Piscotty, 26, was drafted by the Cardinals in the supplemental first round (36th player overall) of the 2012 First Year Player Draft out of Stanford University. Since making his Major League debut in July of 2015, Piscotty has compiled a .282 batting mark with 29 home runs and 124 RBI in 217 games.

Piscotty led the team in games played (153), runs scored (86), RBI (85) and game-winning RBI (10) last season while swatting 22 HR’s to go along with his .273 batting mark. For his efforts, Piscotty was selected as the Cardinals nominee for the prestigious Hank Aaron Award that is given annually to the top hitter in each league. Piscotty was also chosen as the Cardinals representative for the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association’s (MLBPAA) "Heart and Hustle" Award in 2016.

Piscotty has been especially tough in the clutch, batting .357 with two outs and runners in scoring position during his career, ranking 3rd in the majors over the past two (2015-16) seasons. Piscotty ranked 2nd in the N.L. last season with a .363 batting mark with runners in scoring position and he led the team with 37 two-out RBI (6th in the N.L.).

Of his 29 career home runs, 10 have either tied the game or given the Cardinals the lead.

Piscotty hit three home runs during the 2015 Division Series, the most ever by a Cardinals rookie in a Division Series, as were his six RBI in a Division Series.

Cardinals and Molina reach agreement

ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Cardinals reached agreement today with Yadier Molina, considered to be among the greatest players in franchise history, on a three-year (2018-2020) contract extension. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.

"Yadier Molina has demonstrated for many years his importance to the Cardinals organization and his ability to perform at a consistently high level on some of the games’ biggest stages," stated Cardinals’ Chairman Bill Dewitt, Jr. "We are pleased to announce on this special Opening Day, that Yadier will remain a St. Louis Cardinal for several more years, as he continues to add to his many career accomplishments and his franchise legacy."

Molina, 34, has spent his entire 13-year career (2004-16) with St. Louis after being drafted in the 4th round of the 2000 free-agent draft out of Vega Alta, Puerto Rico. Since debuting with the Cardinals in 2004, Molina has compiled a .285 career batting average with 108 home runs and 703 RBI in 1,611 games played.

Molina has been selected to seven National League All-Star teams (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015) and has garnered eight Rawlings Gold Glove awards (2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015) and four Rawlings Platinum Glove awards (2011, 2012, 2014, 2015) for defensive excellence.

"It is with great satisfaction that we are able to announce today that Yadier Molina will remain in his proper place as the centerpiece of our team for the next several seasons," said Cardinals’ Senior Vice President/General Manager John Mozeliak. "His experience, leadership, work ethic and special ability to help bring out the best in those around him are qualities we value greatly, and they will remain important as we seek to win not only now, but also in the coming years, when many of our organization’s top young pitchers begin to emerge at the Major League level."

The two-time World Series Champion (2006, 2011) has appeared in a franchise-record 89 postseason games and owns a team-record 90 career hits in the postseason, including a dramatic two-run homer in the 9th inning of the Cardinals 3-1 National League Championship Series Game 7 win over the New York Mets in 2006 that helped propel the Cardinals to the World Series.

Molina has received votes for the N.L. Most Valuable Player award in five seasons (2009, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2016), including top-5 finishes in 2012 (4th) and 2013 (3rd). Molina was the recipient of the National League Silver Slugger award in 2013 when he batted a career-best .319 with 12 HR’s and 80 RBI.

Yadier appeared in a career-high 147 games last season, batting a team-best .307 (8th in N.L.), as he became just one of nine catchers in Major League history to have compiled five or more seasons with a .300 or better batting mark - joining Ivan Rodriguez, Mike Piazza, Ted Simmons, Mickey Cochrane, Joe Mauer, Victor Martinez, Thurman Munson and Bill Dickey.

Molina led all MLB catchers in innings caught (1,218.1) last season, his 9th-straight season with over 1,000 innings. He also set single-season bests for games (146), starts (142), total chances (1,175), putouts (1,113) and fielding pct. (.998).

Yadier enters the 2017 season ranked among the majors all-time catching leaders in games caught (1,582), innings caught (13,254.0), putouts (10,470) and total chances (11,377). Molina also ranks among the Cardinals all-time leaders in games played (1,611-10th), hits (1,593-13th), doubles (308-12th), home runs (108-19th) and RBI (703-13th). He is one of just 34 catchers in Major League history to have amassed 1,500 career hits with his 1,593 hits ranking 25th all-time among Major League catchers.

Molina is poised to make his 13th-consecutive Opening Day start later this evening, trailing only Cardinals’ Hall of Famers Stan Musial (18, 1946-63) and Lou Brock (15, 1965-79).

Molina is the younger brother of former Major League catchers Bengie and Jose Molina – the only trio of brothers to have each won a World Series Championship.

Yadier participated in his fourth World Baseball Classic last month, leading the Puerto Rican Team to the tournament’s Championship Game, and he was named to the All-World Baseball Classic Team for the second time in his career (was also selected in 2013).

Entering the 2017 season, Yadier ranks 10th all-time among native Puerto Rican’s in career batting average (.285) and he is one of just 20 players from his homeland to have reached the 1,500 career hit plateau. Yadi currently stands 20th in RBI (703) among his countrymen, just eight RBI back of his brother Bengie (711).

At the completion of this contract in 2020, Yadier would join Hall of Famers Stan Musial (22 years; 1941-63) and Bob Gibson (17 years; 1959-1975) as the lone players to have spent 17 or more seasons solely as a member of the St. Louis Cardinals.

Cardinals ink Carlos Martinez to new deal

ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Cardinals announced Thursday that they have signed All-Star pitcher Carlos Martinez to a five-year contract (2017-21) that also includes club options for 2022 and 2023. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. With Thursday’s signing, the team and Martinez avoid salary arbitration.

"Carlos has demonstrated that he is ready to take his position among the game’s top pitchers for many years to come, and we are pleased to announce that he will be anchoring our starting rotation into the foreseeable future," stated Cardinals Senior Vice President/General Manager John Mozeliak.

Martinez, 25, paced the Cardinals pitching staff in wins (16) and strikeouts (174) last season while making a career-high 31 starts with 195.1 innings pitched. The hard-throwing right-hander, a National League All-Star in 2015, has delivered 30 wins over the past two seasons (2015-16), ranking 5th among Senior Circuit pitchers.

Martinez’ .618 (34-21) career winning pct. ranks 3rd all-time (min. 50 decisions) among Cardinals pitchers age 25 years or younger, trailing only Howie Pollet (.661) and Dizzy Dean (.651).

The Dominican native, who was signed by the Cardinals as a non-drafted free-agent in April of 2010, ranked among N.L. leaders in wins (5th), ERA (3.04, 9th), innings pitched (10th), quality starts (20, 6th) and opponent’s batting average (.233, 12th) in 2016.

Against right-handed batters, Martinez limited the opposition to a league-low .269 slugging mark and a .207 batting average, historical marks in Cardinals single-season history. He allowed a total of just 15 home runs last season (only four against righties) and ranked 4th among N.L. pitchers in HR/9 IP ratio (0.69).

Martinez induced 33 double plays in 2016, ranking 2nd in the majors, while finishing one shy of John Denny’s club single-season record (34 in 1978). In the field, he led Major League pitchers with 25 putouts and at the plate he had a career-high 14 hits (5th among MLB pitchers) and ranked fourth in pitcher’s batting (.237).

The flamboyant Martinez, popular among Cardinals fans both in the States and in his native Dominican Republic, has developed a strong bond with Cardinals Nation through his Tsunami Waves charitable foundation by giving back to those in need both in St. Louis and his home of Puerto Plata.

ST. CHARLES -- Soccer fans can close out the year with the St. Louis Ambush on New Year’s Eve, this Saturday, December 31 at 1:05 p.m. at the Family Arena, when the cross-state and Central Division rival Kansas City Comets come to town for the first time this season.

The Ambush and Comets have met once thus far this season, with the Comets prevailing 8-3 in the November 13 season opener at the Silverstein Eye Centers Arena in Independence. The Comets produced a varied offensive attack in that contest, with eight different players, including goalkeeper Stephen Paterson, finding the back of the net.

Before they visit the Family Arena for Saturday’s matinee match, the Comets journey to Florida on Friday night to square off with the Florida Tropics. The Comets currently have a 5-3 record, so they will be either 5-4 or 6-3 when Saturday’s match kicks off. The Ambush are looking to improve on their 1-7 record.

Kansas City is led by dangerous forward Leo Gibson. Gibson is tied for fifth in the MASL in points (22), second in assists (13), sixth in average points per game (2.75) and second in game-winning goals (3). Comets goalkeeper Stephen Paterson ranks third in the league in goals against average (3.91), third in save percentage (.754), and is tied for third in wins with five. Paterson has also posted one of the only two shutouts in the league thus far this season.

The Ambush scoring leaders are Corey Adamson, Stefan St. Louis and Richard Schmermund (five goals each). The point leaders are Schmermund and St. Louis (seven each) and the leader in assists is Kentaro Takada with five.

Saturday’s contest also marks the return to St. Louis of Odaine Sinclair, who played the last three seasons with the Ambush and won the 2013-14 MISL Rookie of the Year honor. Sinclair tallied 36 goals and 38 assists in three seasons with the Ambush. He has two goals and one assist in eight games played thus far this season with the Comets. Sinclair signed with the Comets prior to the start of the current season.

Following Saturday’s game, the Ambush play three consecutive road games. They travel to Milwaukee on Saturday, January 7 when they battle the Wave at the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena at 1:05 p.m. The next weekend, the Ambush head south to Florida for two games against the Tropics, on Friday, January 13 at 6:35 p.m. and on Sunday, January 15 at 4:35 p.m. Fans can catch all Ambush games this season live on the MASLtv YouTube channel.
