Description: With Chris Carpenter out for the season, the Cardinals may be looking for starting pitching help. However, the only starter at Triple-A Memphis with an ERA below 4.88 is Brandon Dickson.
Insight: Dickson (4-8, 3.58 ERA) has allowed 96 hits in 88 innings, but he's kept the ball in the ballpark (just two homers allowed) and hasn't walked many batters (20 BB). He has just 48 strikeouts, but Joe Kelly had a similar strikeout rate and he's had success thus far in five starts at the major league level (1-1, 3.29 ERA).
