Player Outlook
Jose Fermin was acquired from Cleveland last winter, but his bid to win an Opening Day bench spot with the Cardinals ended before it began when he suffered a severe quad strain early in spring training which wound up sidelining him for nearly four months. He saw some spot duty with the Cards down the stretch and showed a solid glove, but his bat lagged well behind. That's been the case with Fermin throughout his days in pro ball, as he's never even had an .800 OPS in a season and sports a .709 OPS during his time at Triple-A. The power is basically non-existent and he hasn't displayed any stolen base chops since A-ball. Fermin will be in the mix for a reserve role in St. Louis, but they figure to be in trouble if he has to play very much.

  • Cardinals' Jose Fermin: Three-hit effort Friday

    Fermin went 3-for-3 in Friday's Grapefruit League win over the Mets. Fermin's big game has him hitting .385 (5-for-13) over six spring games. The 24-year-old projects as a utility infielder if he makes the Cardinals' big-league roster out of camp. Fermin had limited success last year, batting .235 with a .594 OPS across 61 plate appearances. With established options at most, if not all, of the infield positions, Fermin's playing time is unlikely to be significant barring injuries to other players.
