Player Notes
Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Cardinals will "look to move" Randy Choate this offseason.

Advice: General manager John Mozeliak noted Monday that Choate is "fairly one-dimensional," which "makes it difficult for us to use him, particularly during a long season." Choate was again effective versus left-handed batters this season, holding them to a .093/.205/.147 line. He's slated to make $3 million again in 2015, though, so it's doubtful he'll have much trade value.

Randy Choate failed to retire any of the three batters he faced and made a throwing error to allow the winning run to score in Tuesday's NLCS Game 3 loss to the Giants.

Advice: Choate walked Brandon Crawford to lead off the 10th, and Cardinals manager Mike Matheny surprisingly stuck with him against right-handed batter Juan Perez (Trevor Rosenthal, Carlos Martinez and Michael Wacha were still available in the bullpen). After failing twice to sac bunt, Perez then lined a single to put runners on first and second. The Giants again tried to give Choate an out on a Gregor Blanco bunt, but the lefty threw wild to first and Crawford scored the winning run. Choate has faced seven batters this postseason and retired only two of them.
