PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Industry sources say the St. Louis Cardinals are making Pete Kozma available to clubs lacking a shortstop, but the Mets are unlikely to be a match.

Kozma's bat would not really be considered an upgrade over Ruben Tejada.

Kozma, 25, hit .217 with one homer and 35 RBIs in 410 at-bats for the Cards last season.
