GM Mozeliak surveying options for Trade Deadline

ST. LOUIS -- General manager John Mozeliak and his baseball operations staff are continually evaluating potential upgrades to the organization. With the non-waiver Trade Deadline sitting just six weeks away, though, expect those discussions only to augment.

Asked about possible areas of improvement for the Cardinals (who entered Thursday sitting at a Major League-best 20 games over .500), Mozeliak said that he expects more clarity over the next few weeks. He chose not to single out any area just yet.

"I don't know what our greatest need is going to be as we get to July 31," Mozeliak said. "I think the good news is, we're playing pretty good baseball, and we have six weeks to sort through that."

The market of available players hasn't settled yet, either, as it will take a few more weeks for many teams to determine whether they intend to buy or sell at the deadline. Once there is lucidity in that realm, teams looking to add will have a better understanding of which players are even available.
