St. Louis Cardinals Injury News
Alex Reyes is back on the DL; happiness is an illusion
GM Girsch: “Alex Reyes has a significant lat strain” ... said Reyes will miss more than just a couple starts #stlcards— Benjamin Hochman (@hochman) May 31, 2018
After making his season debut yesterday, May 30, Alex Reyes will land back on the Disabled List with a right lat strain. You might recall that is his throwing lat. The Cardinals have recalled Austin Gomber. They have also recalled Luke Voit and optioned John Gant and Tyler O'Neill. The good news is that Carlos Martínez is scheduled to make a rehab start for AA Springfield tonight. His lat seemed fine while he was shooting baskets after the rec-league basketball game we were both watching had ended. With the off day on Monday, the Cardinals may not need another starter until next Saturday, which may allow Martínez to slot in that spot. In other injury news, Yadier Molina is back to baseball activities and may be cleared to play in the next few weeks.
Paul DeJong's hand is fractured
The Cardinals now have 10 players on the Major League disabled list. Seven have landed there in the past 10 days. That is just bananas.— Joe Trezza (@JoeTrezz) May 18, 2018
The Cardinals now have ten players on the disabled list, the two newest being Paul DeJong, who fractured his hand after being hit by a pitch on Thursday evening, and Matt Bowman, who was injured after pitching in every single game since his debut on April 6, 2016. They will join teammates Carson Kelly, Adam Wainwright, Luke Gregerson, Tyler Lyons, Carlos Martínez, Yadier Molina, Dominic Leone, and Alex Reyes (who is currently pitching in rehab assignments) on the Disabled List. Swell.
Carlos Martínez has been placed on the 10-day Disabled List
The #STLCards announced prior to tonight’s game that they have placed RHP Carlos Martínez (right lat strain) on the 10-day disabled list (retro to May 9), and recalled RHP Mike Mayers from Memphis (AAA). pic.twitter.com/Jr1c7vOnwZ— St. Louis Cardinals (@Cardinals) May 10, 2018
Cardinals righthander Carlos Martínez has been placed on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to his last start on May 8 with a right lat strain. For those that may have missed it, that is his throwing lat. If all goes well, Carlos will be available again after May 18. Let's hope it does as he has has been the team's most valuable pitcher. In 50 innings, Carlos has put up a 1.62 ERA (over-performing a 3.41 FIP) with a 22.4% strikeout rate to a 1.5% walk rate, amassing 1.0 fWAR in eight starts. Also, he dances.
Cardinals prospect Harrison Bader called up to St. Louis
Dexter Fowler returns to the disabled list
poor piscotty earned the heck outta that run
If people could stop hitting Piscotty with baseballs, that would be great.
Aledmys Diaz could start on Monday
Per Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post Dispatch, Aledmys Diaz may make his first start Monday since going on the disabled list on July 31 with a fractured thumb. Diaz was activated Sunday, but did not play. According to Hummel, Diaz appears eager to help the team, especially in the thick of a playoff race.
reinforcements are on the way
Matt Holliday and Aledmys Diaz are poised to return this season.
Seth Maness to DL, Sam Tuivailala to St. Louis
The perpetually in-flux Tuivailala is returning to MLB.
Matt Holliday is out and Carlos Gomez is available
With the Cardinals losing an outfielder, the team could go outside the organization for another.
Matt Holliday has a fractured thumb
Holliday has a fractured thumb. Headed back to STL #cardinals— Derrick Goold (@dgoold) August 12, 2016
It turns out the rumors were true all along. Here I thought Matt Holliday was bionic, held together by beautifully soldered silver. But I was wrong. He is a man of flesh and bone and now one of those bones is cracked after being hit by a pitch in Thursday's game. He has headed back the Lou for further evaluation. This blows. STOP HITTING THE BIRDOS IN THEIR HANDS.
Wacha to DL, Reyes to MLB, Weaver starts Saturday
Wacha pitched five innings last night, but will hit the disabled list. Alex Reyes' role not yet clear.
Matt Carpenter could be back today (Friday)!
After what feels like forever, but really was not actually that long considering, the Cardinals fearless leadoff man might return to the club Friday! Carpenter hit the fifteen day disabled list after straining an oblique muscle July 7. If you need me, I will be listening to the Turnpike Troubadour's Long Hot Summer Days on reapeat.
Randal Grichuk sent to minors, Jhonny Peralta, Brandon Moss return
Dean Kiekhefer also optioned with Jhonny Peralta, Brandon Moss, and Zach Duke added to the big league club.
Aledmys Diaz to disabled list with fracture
The injury news for the Cardinals shortstop was not good.
Trevor Rosenthal to disabled list
Dean Kiekhefer called up as is Sam Tuivailala for the doubleheader
Socolovich promoted, McKenry to AAA, Peralta to DL
In light of Jhonny Peralta's lingering thumb injury, the Cardinals make moves to bolster the team's offense and bullpen.
Cardinals activate Siegrist, option Tuivailala
To the surprise of nobody, the high-leverage lefty is back in St. Louis following a bout with mono.
Matt Carpenter leaves game with apparent injury
Matt Carpenter has been removed from tonight's game with a possible injury. Kolten Wong will hit for him. #STLCards— St. Louis Cardinals (@Cardinals) July 7, 2016
Matt Carpenter was pulled from Wednesday night's game after suffering what appears to be an injury to his right oblique/lower back. Matt Carpenter has easily been the Cadinals best hitter and one of the best hitters in the Nstional League this season. So yeah, that is not good at all.
Brayan Pena to disabled list again
Knee soreness sends him back to the disabled. Albert Rosario called up.
Brandon Moss to disabled list, Randal Grichuk returning
Moss is out with an ankle injury and Grichuk will have an opportunity to regain his status.
Kevin Siegrist to DL, Sam Tuivailala called up
Cardinals lose one of their best relievers, but Sam Tuivailala will get another shot with the big club.
LEAVE ALEDMYS ALONE!
.@SWarmann reports Diaz was hit in the side/back with that foul ball that went into #STLCards dugout earlier in game but appears to be OK.— FOX Sports Midwest (@FSMidwest) June 29, 2016
Whatever baseball god Aledmys Diaz angered is after his pound of flesh. Diaz, who was sidelined tonight after being hit by a foul ball near his right eye, left the dugout after being hit by another foul ball. Fortunately he escaped with just a bruise, but in order to avoid the apparent wrath of the angry diety, has decided to stay in the clubhouse for now.
Aledmys Diaz is going to be okay
Shortstop Aledmys Diaz exited the game Monday night against the Kansas City Royals during the top of the ninth inning after a foul ball bounced off the plate and hit him near his right eye. He was still undergoing routine tests, but he was able to report that although he was initially scared the damage had been worse, he considers himself lucky that it was not. Diaz will have a nice shiner, but appears to otherwise be okay as he was able to open his right eye and his vision was normal. The Cardinals expect him back in the lineup in a few days. THANK GOODNESS!
The Secret Weapon may be out for 2016
