Gant (groin) fired four scoreless innings in Triple-A Memphis' win over Fresno on Monday. He gave up three hits and two walks while also notching two strikeouts.
The 24-year-old right-hander has posted a 1.23 ERA and 1.23 WHIP in the 7.1 innings across his two starts, along with a 6:3 K:BB. Gant tore his groin during the last week of spring training after compiling a 1.50 ERA and 0.92 WHIP across 12.0 innings during the exhibition slate. The Cardinals boast a crowded and healthy bullpen at the moment, so Gant could remain with the Redbirds for the foreseeable future.
Gant (groin) was activated from the 10-day disabled list and was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.
Gant is finally ready to return to action after tearing his groin during the last week of spring training. He is expected to start his first game this season for the Redbirds on Wednesday. He should serve as organizational pitching depth now that he is healthy.
Gant (groin) could soon be ready to begin a rehab assignment, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Gant's recovery process has been a prolonged one, as he originally suffered his groin tear in the final week of spring training and has only recently begun to ramp up his activity. However, he's made sufficient progress to where general manager John Mozeliak feels he'll be ready to take the mound with Triple-A Memphis for some rehab outings in the coming weeks.
Gant (groin) has progressed to the point in his rehab where the team believes he can "start pushing" on his activity level, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
The 24-year-old has been on the disabled list since just before Opening Day after an impressive spring that included a 1.50 ERA and 0.92 WHIP in 12.0 innings of work. The Cardinals bullpen has been solid thus far, meaning that Gant is still likely destined to start the campaign in Triple-A Memphis once he's healthy enough to pitch. He last saw game action in a March 25 spring tilt versus the Marlins, when he exited with the groin tightness that's led to his prolonged absence.
Gant (groin) will begin the year on the 10-day disabled list, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.
Gant was pitching well this spring before injuring his groin, accumulating a 1.50 ERA and 0.92 WHIP across 12.0 innings. The 24-year-old will start the year on the DL, but he'll likely head to Triple-A Memphis once he is healthy enough to return.
