Uni Watch: St. Louis Cardinals

The Cards are switching over to a 3-D batting helmet logo, following the Dodgers' lead from last year.

Mark Saxon ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cardinals were not pleased by comments from second baseman Kolten Wong earlier this week. He told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch he would rather be traded than be used as a platoon player, a possibility that has arisen in part because he is batting .184 with a .558 OPS this spring. Jedd Gyorko, who led the team in home runs last year, would be the right-handed part of any platoon. "I think his comments were a little tough given the fact we have other players playing well," general manager John Mozeliak told ESPN Wednesday. "Starting Sunday, we're playing to win. Whenever a player is trying to accomplish something in spring training, that can't be an excuse for why things aren't going well. Overall, we've had a very positive camp and I certainly don't want someone's comments to bring us down."

Adams puts Cardinals on the board with 3-run blast (0:24)

Solid showing of opposite-field power there by Matt Adams, who homered to left-center off Robert Gsellman. It was Adams' fifth spring homer and he entered today batting .302 (albeit with 18 K's). I do hope the Cardinals find a way to sneak him into 300-plus PAs, because he's still got awfully underrated power potential despite the tough home ballpark for it.
