Monday lineups and early tidbits: Wellemeyer, Rasmus, Mateo, trades

Lots and lots of stuff going on at Busch Stadium today.

* TLR said that Todd Wellemeyer’s next start is not a sure thing. They’re going to make a decision in the coming days, but at this point, Friday is TBA.

* Colby Rasmus had an injection in his troublesome left heel and is improving. He’s available to come off the bench tonight and likely will be ready to start tomorrow.

* Wagner Mateo is here, wearing a Cardinal jersey with number 09 and taking some swings and working out.

* John Mozeliak sounded like it’s all but certain that the Cardinals will not trade any more prospects before the deadline. If they can move Glaus, they will look into doing that. But a move where they send a youngster out for help in the bullpen or rotation is pretty much off.

Today’s lineup vs LHP Randy Wolf:
1. Lugo 2B
2. DeRosa 3B
3. Pujols 1B
4. Holliday LF
5. Ludwick RF
6. Molina C
7. Ankiel CF
8. Ryan SS
9. Carpenter P

Dodgers lineup:
1. Furcal SS
2. Hudson 2B
3. Ramirez LF
4. Ethier RF
5. Blake 3B
6. Loney 1B
7. Martin C
8. Kemp CF
9. Wolf P

Ok, the truth is out. I am a Cardinal nut AND a golfer. I play so much golf that I have no clue who Wagner Mateo is. Bueller … anyone? Who is the due?

Matt,
Do you think that Rasmus/Ankiel will be a better fit in the 2 hole than DeRosa against Righties?
