  • It wouldn't be a surprise to see the Cardinals give Ryan Jackson an opportunity over Daniel Descalso and Pete Kozma at shortstop; he's probably the best of the group defensively and it's not like he can be much of a downgrade on offense. That said, there's little to get excited about, either; he finished up at .278/.352/.346 with three homers and nine steals in 442 at-bats for Triple-A Memphis. Jackson doesn't yet have shortstop eligibility, so he's the No. 38 second baseman at the moment.
