Kyle Lohse left tonight’s game with further “discomfort” in his pitching elbow, likely (hopefully) stemming from the pitch that hit him in that right elbow a week-and-a-half or so back.
Assuming Lohse is destined for a stint on the Disabled List, who is the likely call-up candidate?
I don’t think the Cards are interested in bringing back Mitchell Boggs or PJ Walters (pure conjecture on my part), and in carrying thirteen pitchers in recent weeks, they have the flexibility to disable Lohse and bring up a hitter (which many would argue they desperately need).
Cards could certainly use some power in the lineup, from either side of the plate, and Mather can play third base – a position many Cardinal fans are clamoring to fill with anyone but Joe Thurston or Brian Barden.
Got better ideas for a call-up? Hit up the comments section (psst, keep scrolling down).
