(The Chirp) -- The Cardinals may not be completely set on Kolten Wong starting the season at second base, or perhaps they just want to add a competent back up. Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the team has met with the agent of infielder Mark Ellis.

Ellis, a free agent, played for he Dodgers in 2013. He would provide an strong insurance policy that would provide more flexibility for the Cardinals show Wong require more minor league seasoning.
