Mikolas (forearm) is expected to begin spring training on a normal schedule, Brendan Schaeffer of KMOV News reports. The 32-year-old underwent surgery on his right flexor tendon in late July and missed the entirety of the 2020 campaign, but it shouldn't impact his status entering next season. Mikolas had a 4.16 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 144:32 K:BB over 184 innings during 2019, and he's expected to begin 2021 as a member of the starting rotation.
Mikolas (forearm) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Tuesday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. The move won't have any effect on Mikolas' return timeline, as he's already been ruled out for the year due to surgery on his right flexor tendon. The move creates a spot on the 40-man roster for the Cardinals to add a player once their season eventually resumes following their COVID-19 outbreak.
Mikolas will undergo surgery on his right flexor tendon and will miss the remainder of the season, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Mikolas' forearm issues date back to the end of last season, though he was able to throw throughout summer camp. Notably, the procedure he'll undergo is not Tommy John surgery, so he won't be forced to miss the entirety of the 2021 campaign as well. He's expected to be ready for the start of next season. Daniel Ponce de Leon will take his place in the rotation and will start Wednesday against the Twins.
Mikolas was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a right forearm strain. Mikolas was dealing with a strained right flexor tendon in his forearm heading into summer camp, and the issue appears to have resurfaced. It's unclear how much time he'll miss as a result of the setback. The right-hander was scheduled to make his 2020 debut Wednesday and a replacement starter hasn't yet been named.
Mikolas will start Wednesday's game against the Twins, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports. Mikolas threw 60 pitches in his final tuneup of summer camp, and he'll receive the nod for Wednesday's contest in Minnesota. After a career season in 2018, the right-hander posted a 4.16 ERA and 1.22 WHIP over 184 innings across 32 starts last season.
