The cardinals began reconstructing their bullpen on Friday by designating Greg Holland, right-wing right-wing right-hander, who should be close to them, and the esteemed right-handed Dakota Hudson of Memphis.
The team announced the move on Friday afternoon in the midst of a flood of transactions that redesigned the Bullpen one afternoon.
In addition to Holland's appointment for the task, the Cardinals did the same as left-handed Tyler Lyons. The Cardinals also traded right-handed Sam Tuivailala to Seattle for a minor league reliever. And the cardinals placed the left board Cecil with an inflammation in his right foot on the disabled list.
The Cardinals applied to the left of Tyler Webb of Memphis and right-handed Daniel Poncedeleon, along with Hudson.
Luke Weaver was promoted as planned on Friday night against the Chicago Cubs at Busch Stadium.
John Mozeliak, president of baseball operations, said: "It was clear that things were not working in the bullpen, we are making radical changes or as many changes as we have had internal resources to give us a chance
Mozeliak said that Hudson and Poncedeleon would be in the Bullpen for the time being, as well as Austin Gomber, who threw 6 1
The Slider Specialist never really took command of this pitch or his fastball for that matter. He was averaging 0-2 with no parries and a 7.92 earned run and ran as many batsmen (22) as he stroked in 25 innings.
Mozeliak said he was "shocked" that Holland did not work out.  "You invest $ 14 million and your expectations are of course very high," said Mozeliak.
"We can all look back and have our own opinion on why it did not work … the story of no spring training … Should we let him throw more innings in the minor league before he activates him?" All these things are fair questions, but the reality is that when he had this chance, he had no command, which was debilitating for him. "
Hudson, 13-3 with a 2.50 ERA in Memphis, became He was drafted in Salt Lake City on Wednesday in the second inning of his start, meaning that a move involving him in the big leagues was imminent. Hudson, a former # 1 pick who is one of the top baseball players among the top league pros, has only given one home race this season.
In exchange for Tuivailala, The Cardinals acquired right-hander Seth Elledge of the Mariners and handed him over to AA Springfield. Elledge, 22, was a top 10 prospect for the Mariners, after baseball America, and he had nine saves and a 1.17 ERA in 31 games for Class A Modesto.
