      Cardinals' Ryan Helsley: Strong outing in long relief

      Ryan Helsley fired three scoreless innings in a loss to the Dodgers on Monday, allowing a hit and four walks while recording two strikeouts.Helsley was just recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Sunday for yet another big-league stint, and manager Mike Shildt put him right to work in order to preserve some of his other bullpen arms. Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Helsley hasn't been ruled out by Shildt as a possible opener candidate if the St. Louis Cardinals occasionally deploy a "bullpen day" strategy down the stretch. The right-hander had been serving as a starter with the Redbirds to prep for a multi-inning role in the majors akin to the one he filled Monday.

      Cardinals' Ryan Helsley: Likely returning to majors soon

      Ryan Helsley, who remains on the 40-man roster while at Triple-A Memphis, is expected to return to the St. Louis Cardinals before the end of the season, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.Helsley was most recently sent down to the Redbirds after throwing two scoreless innings in relief against the Reds on July 20. He's subsequently started in both of his appearances since returning to Memphis, throwing 48 pitches over 2.1 innings on July 25 before logging another three frames and 35 pitches Wednesday. Rogers reports Helsley could be an option as a spot starter if Michael Wacha struggles in his return to the rotation, or he could once again serve in the relief capacity he's generated a 2.92 ERA and 0.97 WHIP in across eight big-league appearances this season.

      Cardinals' Ryan Helsley: Bounces back in second rehab outing

      Ryan Helsley (shoulder) fired a scoreless seventh inning in Triple-A Memphis' loss to New Orleans on Saturday, allowing a hit and a walk, uncorking a wild pitch and recording a strikeout.Helsley had a little bit of everything in his second rehab appearance, and some location issues led to him throwing 20 pitches overall during his one frame. However, it was still a markedly better performance for the right-hander than his first turn with the Redbirds, when he failed to record an out while yielding four earned runs. It remains to be seen if Helsley will require at least one more minor-league outing before activation.
