St. Louis Cardinals: 4 Pitchers with a Shot at the 5th Rotation Spot

With the memories of 1996 unearthed during this postseason for Cardinal fans, it can be certain Cardinal fans would like a do-over next season. Nothing like blowing a 3-1 series lead to turn your focus to February when pitchers and catchers report.

The Cardinals will be a in a great position when it comes to pitching next season. A healthy Chris Carpenter, a rejuvenated Adam Wainwright, a healed Jaime Garcia and a so-so Jake Westbrook make up a decent first four.  

With the Cardinals all but saying they will be letting Kyle Lohse walk during free agency, the fifth spot in the rotation is wide open. 

The Cardinals have four legit options at the fifth spot: Lance Lynn, Shelby Miller, Joe Kelly and Trevor Rosenthal.

Having four options who all possess fastballs at 95 mph and better is a good problem to have. Manager Mike Matheny is a lucky guy to have such a problem.
