This week's focus is on former Chicago Cubs left-handed pitcher Rich Hill, who in two steps was moved from competing for St. Louis' rotation this spring to the bullpen of the Triple-A Memphis Redbirds.
Also included in the column are the regular summaries of all the Cardinals minor league affiliates this past week as well as St. Louis-area minor league players in the news.
Last week's column focused on two-time Cardinals Minor League Pitcher of the Month Scott Schneider.
