      Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Impresses in intrasquad game

      Miles Mikolas threw 53 pitches over 2.2 innings in an intrasquad game Sunday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.The veteran right-hander was besieged by multiple errors behind him in the third and final frame, but no ball hit off Mikolas left the infield Sunday. Mikolas was actually perfect through two innings and recorded strikeouts of Kolten Wong and Matt Carpenter, making it a successful afternoon overall. The 31-year-old was able to use both his inside fastball and offspeed pitches effectively as he tried to emulate a regular-season mindset. "It's an intrasquad and we're teammates, but for that short amount of time, I'm not trying to be your friend," Mikolas said. "I'm trying to get ready for the season, and I think as these games get even closer and these intrasquad games get stretched out even longer, I think you're going to see even more of an edge and maybe some trash-talking and maybe guys getting more gritty."

      Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: 'Full go' in bullpens Friday

      Miles Mikolas, who has been deemed fully recovered from a flexor tendon strain in his right forearm, was able to work up to approximately 40 pitches in a Friday bullpen session at Busch Stadium, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports. "It was pretty sore [in March] and I was just getting started on the rehab program," Mikolas said. "Now, full-go bullpens. Looking forward to my first live BP coming up, and ready to go."Much like teammate Paul Goldschmidt, the veteran right-hander was able to utilize the nearly four months off from official baseball activities and games to overcome an injury that was projected to have him miss the originally scheduled Opening Day. Mikolas' activity level Friday seems to corroborate that his arm is back to full health, and he'll take another step toward his regular-season readiness when he faces teammates in live batting practice over the coming days.

      Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Gets clean bill of health

      St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Shildt suggested Wednesday that Miles Mikolas (forearm) will be fully healthy when the team resumes workouts at summer camp this week, Ben Frederickson of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.Mikolas' clean bill of health comes as little surprise, as he had previously had an outside chance of making a full recovery from his strained flexor tendon by late March, when Opening Day was originally scheduled to occur. With the start of the season now having been pushed back approximately four months, Mikolas should be in store for a similar buildup program to the Cardinals' other starting pitchers during camp. Shildt added that he expects to use a five-man rotation when the 60-game slate opens in late July, which will likely result in offseason import Kwang-Hyun Kim settling for a long-relief role.
