Winners of just three of their last 14 games, the Cardinals are in Texas to face the 19-22 Rangers for a three-game series this weekend. St. Louis enters the day with a record of 23-21 and sit 3 1⁄2 games back of the first-place, 25-16 Cubs. The Brewers are just a half-game out, at 27-19, following their recent 7-3 stretch.
The Cardinals are expected to activate Carlos Martinez off the injured list this weekend. This would result in a reliever being demoted, and it seems like Tyler Webb, Luke Gregerson, and Dominic Leone have the highest likelihoods of heading to Memphis.
