NEW YORK -- Like the Tigers, the Reds, the Indians and probably more teams as well, the Cardinals are out looking for a starting pitcher this month.

"They're in on all the same guys everyone else is," a rival club official said Wednesday.

The hope, according to people in baseball who have talked to the Cardinals, is that they can add a starter and then move Kyle McClellan back to the bullpen. McClellan hasn't been bad as a starter, but as far back as spring training manager Tony La Russa was talking about how much McClellan meant to his bullpen last year.

"Could he be moved [to the bullpen]? He could, but I hope he doesn’t, because we need starting pitching," La Russa said before McClellan started against the Mets Wednesday night.

That changes, of course, if the Cardinals trade for a starter.

La Russa said he's not sure that's possible.

"It's what's out there, and what you can realistically get," he said. "All you need is the best effort [from the front office]. As long as they try, if they don't do anything, things could work out and we could win with this club."

Kevin Slowey of the Twins would be a good fit for the Cards.  Slowey is coming off of rehab very soon and doesn't fit into the Twins' plans for the future, as he is in manager Ron Gardenhire's doghouse for refusing to do relief duty.
