Cardinals overhaul coaching staff after missing postseason

ST. LOUIS (AP) St. Louis Cardinals pitching coach Derek Lilliquist and bullpen coach Blaise Ilsley will not return to the team's coaching staff next season.

John Mozeliak, the Cardinals president of baseball operations, says both coaches will not have their contracts renewed following a second straight year of missing the playoffs - the first time St. Louis has missed the postseason in back-to-back seasons since 2007-08.

Lilliquist had worked as the pitching coach since August of 2012, helping the Cardinals to four straight playoff berths and a National League-best team ERA of 2.94 in 2015. That rose to 4.08 in 2016 and was 4.01 this season as St. Louis' pitching staff battled numerous injuries, including a season-ending elbow injury to top prospect Alex Reyes during spring training.
