Updating a previous report, Gyorko (calf) will not play in any more Grapefruit League games and is not certain to be ready for Opening Day, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports. It was initially believed Gyorko had a chance to return to spring games by midweek, but that's officially gone by the wayside. Manager Mike Shildt confirmed Gyorko has seen the last of his Grapefruit League action for this year, and the goal will instead be to get him into some minor-league games as early as this weekend. For his part, Gyorko says he's "cautiously optimistic" about being ready for Opening Day, but he'll need to be able to run the bases without tightness and get enough at-bats in live action before he deems himself ready to kick off the campaign. Given the uncertainty regarding Gyorko's status, Langosch reports the Cardinals are likely to take utility infielders Yairo Munoz and Drew Robinson with them to Milwaukee for the season-opening series that begins March 28.
Gyorko (calf) isn't expected to return to Grapefruit League action until Wednesday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Gyorko has been sidelined for most of the month with a calf issue. While he was originally hoping to rejoin the lineup Monday, continued discomfort has delayed his return by at least a couple of days. It's unclear if Gyorko will be ready for the start of the season.
Gyorko (calf) is not present in either of the Cardinals' split-squad lineups Friday. Gyorko took part in batting practice early this week and has a chance to return to game action over the weekend, but won't do so Friday. The 30-year-old has been dealing with a calf issue since last week but his status for Opening Day shouldn't be in doubt, assuming he is able to play over the next few days.
Gyorko (calf) isn't expected to return to the Cardinals' Grapefruit League lineup until the weekend, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports. Gyorko hasn't played since March 3 due to a calf strain and has logged just seven plate appearances in spring training to date, but the Cardinals are still optimistic the utility infielder will be ready to go for Opening Day. He took batting practice Monday and should steadily increase his activities over the next few days before rejoining the lineup as soon as Friday.
