Meneses optioned
what is the next shoe to drop?

I guess they like Ramirez's bat more than Meneses, and Ramirez can play 1st. This allows Winker to full time DH. Curious who the backfill is. Can't be Millas. More likely is Call, I think. 4th outfielder if Winker is DH'ng full time.

Figure Wood / Young /Thomas with Call as backup.
Senzel, Abrams, Garcia, Ramirez, Vargas, Nunez.
Then Ruiz and Adams, with Winker DH.

Thinking a bit more, Senzel and Garcia could be close to a platoon, with Every Day Every Play playing Every Day Every Play between 3d and 2d. I don't like that because I prefer Vargas spotted in off the bench when we need contact.

IT would take dropping somebody like Willingham from the 40 man roster, but Juan Yepez really deserves a shot at 1st and would be a righty for righty swap with Meneses. Had a very nice June: https://www.wnff.net/index.php?topic=41286.0;msg=2325294 .  Since 5/17, he's had more BBs than Ks and has an OPS of .865

Ramirez or they buy Yepez's contract, add him the 40 man and 26 man roster, and drop somebody off the 40 man.

TBH, I'd like Ramirez released, Yepez to replace him, and Call up as the 4th OF. I suppose with Wood's ability to play CF, the 4th OF can be somebody who plays in a corner, but if Winker is a full time DH, I'd rather see a 4th OF than have Vargas play out there.

FWIW, Ghost Mears at Talk Nats says:

A source tells us that the Nats will activate Juan Yepez and DFA Stone Garrett but the team is sitting on it. One rumor was that the team had a possible trade in the works.

Oh, Rosario cleared release waivers and has been released.

Why Yepez now? Perhaps because he's a former Card?

Probably because this team has less than 300 innings of first base play on it right now.

Yepez is probably going to be better than Meneses, but not by much.

I think it was more why the potential Yepez/meneses swap out.

Yepez not playing today for Rochester.   Has a 40/45 BB/K this year there with a .175 ISO.

Maybe we'll get lucky with another poorly developed Cardinals prospect
