Cardinals GM John Mozeliak told FoxSports Midwest that everyone in the minors is available:
“This type of year, the cost of doing business is high, and we understand that. So in terms of what were willing to do and give up, I think we’re going to treat our minor league players as nobody is untouchable, but we want to make sure that we don’t put ourselves in a position where we’re sitting a year from now and we’re completely depleted. We have to be smart about it but I do think this team is worth investing in, so we’re going to try to do something.”
That quote came directly after FSMW pointing out that Roy was the best pitcher available, and St. Louis is on Roy's list of teams he would approve.
