The St. Louis Cardinals announced today that they have purchased the contract of right-handed pitcher Seth Maness  from Memphis (AAA) and optioned left-handed pitcher Marc Rzepczynski to the triple-A club.   Maness, 24, was the Cardinals Minor League Pitcher of the Year in 2012 and will be making his Major League debut with his first appearance.

Maness was 2-2 with a 4.32 ERA in four starts at Memphis this season, striking out 18 and walking just three in 25.0 innings pitched.  Maness was an 11th round selection for the Cardinals out of East Carolina University in 2011.

The 6-0, 190-pound North Carolina native has displayed impeccable control throughout his pro career, allowing just 18 total walks in 247.2 innings pitched.   Maness worked six or more innings in each of his four starts at Memphis and has done so in 27 of his 38 career minor league starts.

Rzepczynski made nine appearances to begin the 2013 season with St. Louis, allowing seven runs in 8.0 innings of work with no decisions.

Maness will join the Cardinals for tonight’s series opener against the Reds and will wear uniform # 61.

       St Louis based Peabody Energy is holding its annual shareholders meeting in Wyoming to highlight the importance of the coal-rich Powder River Basin.

     A delegation of more than a dozen retired and active mine workers from West Virginia, Illinois, Kentucky and Florida are protesting.

    One group critical of the company, Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment, claims the company is trying to avoid hearing concerns in its hometown. 

    Meantime, thousands of protesting mine workers returned to St. Louis today as  hearings begin in U.S. Bankruptcy Court on demands by Peabody's Patriot Coal Company. Miners accuse Peabody of eliminating  health care for retired miners and for making cuts in pay, benefits and working conditions for current miners. 

     In a statement, Peabody Energy says "The union continues to grandstand when it knows that this matter will be decided in the courts. Patriot was highly successful following its launch more than five years ago with significant assets, low debt and a market value that more than quadrupled in less than a year.   Peabody has lived up to its obligations and continues to do so. This is a matter between the union and Patriot Coal, and will be decided in the bankruptcy court."

A 12-year-old chess prodigy from California will make his next competitive move in St. Louis next month.

Tournament organizers say Samuel Sevian, of Santa Clara, is the youngest person ever to compete in the U.S. Championship to be held at  the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis.

For a fifth year the Club is playing host to the U.S. Championship and the U.S. Women's Championship from May 3rd to 13th.

Tournament organizers say Samuel Sevian was just nine-years-old when he was named a "National Master." At the time, it made him the youngest person to achieve that title in U.S. chess history.

   More testimony is expected today in the trial of a St. Louis man charged with killing three people at a Minnesota home last year.  

   Thirty-five year old Eddie Mosley is charged in the deaths of DeLois Brown and her parents, Clover and James Bolden, Senior.  The Bolden's had just moved from East St. Louis to be closer to their daughter.  

   Mosley's half-sister testified Friday that he'd seemed "desperate" to silence a teenager who had accused him of molesting her.  She testified that he'd called the girl's mother several times in the days just before the murders.

   Prosecutors say Mosley had driven from St. Louis to Brown's Brooklyn Park, Minnesota home to silence the girl, but she wasn't there.  

   Mosley's attorney says he had no motive for the killings.

   Ladue High School administrators are hoping to start a new graduation tradition this year, one that doesn't include the notorious "Senior list."  The list is an annual prank in which a list is published that makes sexually derogatory comments about several junior or senior girls.  

   The school made national headlines in 2012 when a parent filed a civil rights complaint over the list.  That prompted a federal investigation.  

   Since then school officials have waged an aggressive anti-bullying, anti-sexual harassment campaign.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that they've also warned students of severe consequences for anyone who puts out such a list.  Anyone involved in making a list face suspensions, and seniors won't be allowed to participate in graduation.
