CINCINNATI: 2016: 68-94, fifth place
Manager: Bryan Price (third season)
Who's new? RHP Scott Feldman, RHP Drew Storen, RHP Lisalverto Bonilla, OF Ryan Raburn, OF Desmond Jennings, IF/OF Arismendy Alcantara
Who's gone? 2B Brandon Phillips, C Ramon Cabrera, RHP Dan Straily, RHP Ross Ohlendorf, RHP Alfredo Simon, LHP John Lamb, RHP Josh Smith
Projected lineup: CF Billy Hamilton (.260, 3 HR, 17 RBI, 58 SB), SS Zack Cozart (.252, 16, 50), 1B Joey Votto (.326, 29, 97), LF Adam Duvall (.241, 33, 103), RF Scott Schebler (.265, 9, 40), 3B Eugenio Suarez (.248, 21, 70), C Devin Mesoraco (.140, 0, 1 in 16 games), 2B Jose Peraza (.324, 3, 25, 21 SB)
Rotation: RH Anthony DeSclafani (9-5, 3.28 ERA), RH Scott Feldman (7-4, 3.97 with Astros and Blue Jays), LH Brandon Finnegan (10-11, 3.98), RH Tim Adleman (4-4, 4.00), RH Robert Stephenson (2-3, 6.08) or Cody Reed (0-7, 7.36) or Amir Garrett (2-5, 3.46 for Triple-A Louisville)
Key relievers: RH Raisel Iglesias (3-2, 2.53, 6/8 SV), RH Drew Storen (3-0, 3.44 with Mariners), RH Michael Lorenzen (2-1, 2.88), LH Tony Cingrani (2-5, 4.14, 17/23 SV), RH Jumbo Diaz (1-1, 3.14), RH Blake Wood (6-5, 3.99) Hot spot: Rotation. The Reds' rebuilding effort is just beginning to bear fruit on the mound. DeSclafani, 26, made a big leap in his second full season in 2016. Finnegan, 23, will try to do the same this year. If the next wave of pitchers isn't ready for the major leagues, Stephenson, Reed, Garrett, Sal Romano and Rookie Davis would make a mean rotation at Triple-A. Meanwhile, 40-year-old Bronson Arroyo will try to hold down a job like it's 2004.
Outlook: After trading Phillips to the Braves, only Votto and pitcher Homer Bailey remain from the Reds' last season as a contending team. Cincinnati was basically a .500 team (36-37) after the All-Star break last season, so maybe a return to respectability isn't far off. Hamilton and infielder Jose Peraza, electric on the bases and in the field, have breakout potential. There might not be another star on the roster besides Votto, but that's OK for now. With no veterans blocking their best prospects, the Reds can use this season to figure out what their system holds.
ST LOUIS: 2016: 86-76, second place
Manager: Mike Matheny (sixth season)
Who's new? OF Dexter Fowler, C Eric Fryer, LH Brett Cecil
Who's gone? 1B Brandon Moss, OF Matt Holliday, OF Jeremy Hazelbaker, RHP Jaime Garcia, RHP Seth Maness, RHP Jerome Williams
Projected lineup: CF Dexter Fowler (.276, 13 HR, 48 RBI, 13 SB with Cubs), SS Aledmys Diaz (.300, 17, 65), 1B Matt Carpenter (.271, 21, 68), RF Stephen Piscotty (.273, 22, 85), C Yadier Molina (.307, 8, 58), 3B Jedd Gyorko (.243, 30, 59), 2B Kolten Wong (.240, 5, 23), LF Randal Grichuk (.240, 24, 68)
Rotation: RH Carlos Martinez (16-9, 3.04 ERA), RH Adam Wainwright (13-9, 4.62), RH Mike Leake (9-12, 4.69), RH Michael Wacha (7-7, 5.09), RH Lance Lynn (did not pitch - Tommy John surgery)
Key relievers: RH Seung-hwan Oh (6-3, 1.92 ERA 19/23 SV), LH Kevin Siegrist (6-3, 2.77), RH Trevor Rosenthal (2-4, 4.46, 14/18 SV), LH Brett Cecil (1-7, 3.93 with Blue Jays), RH Jonathan Broxton (4-2, 4.30), RH Matt Bowman (2-5, 3.46), RH Miguel Socolovich (1-0, 2.00)
Hot spots: Rotation. The back end looked like a big leap of faith when spring training began. Wainwright and Wacha are coming off their worst seasons. Another 2013 World Series mainstay, Lynn, didn't pitch last season as he recovered from Tommy John surgery. Then, on the first day of camp, 22-year-old right-hander Alex Reyes learned he needed Tommy John himself. That leaves a lot of question marks after ace Martinez ' more than any Cardinals staff has faced in years.
Outlook: This 40-man roster hints at a team in transition. Venerable 34-year-old catcher Molina is still St. Louis' biggest star. Reyes' injury hurts the youth movement, but the Cardinals are still stacked with talented 20-something sluggers ' Piscotty, Diaz, Gyorko and Grichuk ' who could emerge as household names. Adding Fowler's speed and patience should complement an already deep lineup. The pitching staff is a different matter. Barring a big resurgence from Wainwright, Lynn and Wacha (or a big trade) it's hard to see the Cardinals contending for more than a wild card spot in the Cubs' shadow.
Rookie pitchers clash as Cardinals face Reds

ST. LOUIS -- When the Reds and St. Louis Cardinals ran into each other on the season's first weekend in early April at Busch Stadium, Cincinnati left-hander Amir Garrett tossed six shutout innings for a win in his major league debut.

Luke Weaver was down at Triple-A Memphis, trying to prove to St. Louis that he could learn what he had to in order to come back to the majors and make more of an impact than he did late last year.

On Thursday, when the Reds and Cardinals close out their three-game series, the paths of Weaver and Garrett will intersect on the Busch Stadium pitching mound. Only now the script has been flipped.

Garrett is attempting to show Cincinnati that he can be part of its 2018 plans. Weaver is suddenly one of the hottest pitchers in baseball and partly responsible for St. Louis being in a playoff race.

Garrett (3-7, 7.39 ERA) mostly has been pounded since that magical beginning, winding up at Triple-A Louisville for a spell before returning to Cincinnati. He is back in the rotation for the season's remainder, one of four rookies sandwiching veteran Homer Bailey.

Garrett's last outing occurred Friday night, a 5-1 loss to the New York Mets at Citi Field. He allowed three homers during his five innings, as well as four runs and a pair of walks. Throw out his debut game in St. Louis and Garrett has permitted a whopping 22 homers in 57 1/3 innings.

For the Reds (63-83) to win this one, Garrett has to resemble the pitcher he was on that cool April night and not the one who's been turning his head often to watch the ball leave the yard.

"We're a little vulnerable if our starter doesn't go at least five innings," Cincinnati manager Bryan Price said. "We really don't have an established major league bullpen without (Drew) Storen, without (Wandy) Peralta."

As for Weaver (5-1, 2.16 ERA), he has won four consecutive starts, yielding only four runs in 25 1/3 innings and fanning 36 hitters. In his 4-1 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night, Weaver scattered seven singles over 5 2/3 scoreless innings, whiffing seven.

"I had a little more movement on my fastball than usual," he said. "A few of them were leaking out over the plate, so I had to make an adjustment and just trust the movement."

This is not the same tentative youngster who in his only career outing against the Reds last September was torched for five runs in a relief role while recording only two outs.

The Cardinals (76-69) need Weaver to keep being who he has been for the past month-plus. Their 6-0 loss Wednesday night to Cincinnati dropped them into third place in the National League Central, three games behind the first place Chicago Cubs and a half-game in back of the Milwaukee Brewers.

St. Louis has seven games left with Chicago, three coming this weekend under the sunshine at Wrigley Field. However, the Cardinals are 4-8 against the Cubs overall and 1-5 on Chicago's north side.

St. Louis sits 3 1/2 games back of the Colorado Rockies in the race for the second NL wild card.
