Kelly
Salas
Rzepcynski
Boggs
Motte
Browning, maybe?

We really have an abundance of pitchers. Miller will probably have to stay in the minors if Carpenter comes back, especially with Westbrook's extension. Kelly, with his performance this year, has a strong argument to stay with the Cards. Maybe he's dangled as trade bait.

The line up probably won't look much different, unless we improve at 2B, which could be Wong, if he plays well. If not, I'd love to trade someone like Kelly for Jason Kipnis
I dont believe you can say clearly they think he is ready he was called up at a time when our bullpen was under performing and hurt.... he had never played in AAA before that time. He still needs time in the minors.
