2014 Major League Stats: 4.50 ERA, 61 G, 36.0 IP, 1.11 WHIP
2015 Role: Reliever in the Major Leagues
It was a tough season for Randy Choate. When he signed with the Cardinals before the 2013 season, many of us breathed a sigh of relief as the Cardinals finally had an elite LOOGY for the bullpen. It was something they had lacked as they tried to squeeze every ounce of it out of lesser pitchers under Tony La Russa. Entering 2014 though, Mike Matheny and the team wanted more out of Randy Choate than his ability to get left handed batters out at elite levels, they wanted him to pitch against right handers and whole innings.
