News
Gyorko produced mixed results in Monday's batting practice session, struggling against Carlos Martinez but hitting a monstrous homer off Trevor Rosenthal, Jose de Jesus Ortiz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The slugging infielder, who smacked 30 homers in his first Cardinals season in 2016, made waves in the morning session with a blast to right field off Rosenthal, who is trying to make the transition from closer to middle reliever or starter this spring. As encouraging as his round-tripper off Rosenthal was, Gyorko had also been humbled in an earlier round of at-bats against Martinez, who stymied him with his trademark changeup. "He's got good stuff. He's the guy that we leaned on last year, and we're going to lean on him again this year to be quality and go out and give us good innings."

News
Gant, acquired from the Braves on Dec. 1, will follow starter Luke Weaver in Saturday's Grapefuit League opener against the Marlins, Glenn Sattell of MLB.com reports.

The 24-year-old right-hander has been solid in workouts so far, and brings impressive size (6-foot-5), a three-pitch arsenal, and unique delivery. Gant is likely to receive at least two frames to showcase his skills Saturday and will likely be followed by non-roster invitee Austin Gomber.

Weaver has been named the starter for Saturday's Grapefruit League opener against the Marlins, Glenn Sattell of MLB.com reports.

Weaver, competing for the fifth starter job, will thus get first crack at making an impression against live competition this spring. The 23-year-old righty, who went 1-4 with a 5.70 ERA over his first 36.1 major league innings in 2016, will likely work just two frames Saturday and will be followed by John Gant and non-roster invitee Austin Gomber.

News
Siegrist (shoulder) threw his first bullpen session of spring Wednesday, Glenn Sattell of MLB.com reports. "It was good," said Siegrist, who threw about 25 pitches. "Everything was fine. [I threw] all fastballs and changeups. No pain, nothing like that. Now it's just all about building back up to get ready to throw in games. I feel good so far."

Saddled with some shoulder tightness last week that had prompted him to cancel his scheduled pitching sessions, Siegrist had moved up to playing catch on a couple of different occasions since Friday. Having experienced no setbacks, he finally threw his first bullpen of spring Wednesday, and reported that he was able to do so without restriction or discomfort. The Cardinals' projected setup man in 2017, Siegrist will evaluate how he feels Thursday before making firm plans to embark on a normal schedule of bullpen and batting practice sessions.

News
Grichuk, who is moving to left field in 2017 with the arrival of Dexter Fowler, is looking forward to his new position and the coming season in general, Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. "Last year, I tried to feel for the ball a little too much - trying to be a hitter that I'm not. This year, I'm going to let it fly and have some fun, like I did the last month or month-and-a-half of the year," said Grichuk, who had 12 of his 24 homers in August and September.

Grichuk tallied a career-high 24 homers and 68 RBI in 2016, despite struggling with a left knee that ended up requiring cartilage repair surgery in November. However, the 25-year-od did concede that the knee bothered him "a good amount" throughout the campaign, which likely played a part in his .240 average and .289 OBP. Now fully healthy, Grichuk and the Cardinals feel his speed, strong throwing arm and previous experience playing left field will help him make a seamless transition to his new position. At the plate, Grichuk also will aim to make much more consistent contact, considering he's posted 31.4-and-29.5-percent strikeout rates, respectively, over his last two major league seasons.

Lynn (elbow), making his return after missing all of 2016 due to Tommy John surgery, will start Monday's split squad game against the Nationals,Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Lynn will make his long-awaited return to the mound after missing all of last season. The 29-year-old right-hander is looking to earn a spot in the starting rotation and build on his streak of four straight double-digit victory seasons, with Monday's outing serving as his first chance to start building his case,
