MINNEAPOLIS — If anything, the conversations and exchange of details that manager Mike Shildt usually has with an affiliate about rising prospects or returning players has increased this season with the Cardinals’ alternate site camp in Springfield, Mo.
That is, after all, the extent of the farm this year.
“There’s probably more interaction with that camp, just based on the moving parts,” Shildt said Wednesday. “That is our minor-league system that we draw from.”
Pitchers Alex Reyes and Genesis Cabrera faced hitters in a live batting practice workout Wednesday morning at Hammons Field, home of the Cardinals’ Class AA club.
