Thomas, Oviedo promoted as Cardinals begin roster moves to shuffle lineup, address outfield

As far as hints at the ballpark go, the Cardinals are more likely to reveal some of their decisions early by what they do on the field before a game than what they announce on Twitter.

When Paul Goldschmidt was hampered by a sore back and about to miss the home opener, an early indication was Matt Carpenter coming out earlier that day to take groundballs at first base and go through a progression of drills. On Sunday morning, with no BP on the field, a pair of outfielders came out to take fly balls and work on throws and cutoffs to second base.
