Cardinals GM John Mozeliak told Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that Matt Carpenter will open 2017 as the team's starting first baseman.
It seems like the right call after the Cards juggled Carpenter between third base (52 starts), second base (37 starts), and first base (35 starts) in 2016. Carpenter is the best hitter in St. Louis and his defensive profile fits best at first base entering what will be his age-31 campaign. Jhonny Peralta and Jedd Gyorko figure to share time at third base, with Kolten Wong opening as the starter at second. Mozeliak and Co. could also be thinking of making some infield upgrades this winter. Nov 8 - 5:09 PM
