      Cardinals' Lane Thomas: Out after three straight starts

      Lane Thomas is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Cubs, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.Thomas had started three straight contests and five of the last six games, but he'll take a seat Monday with the St. Louis Cardinals rolling out an outfield of Tommy Edman, Harrison Bader and Tyler O'Neill. Bader and O'Neill are seemingly most at risk of losing out on playing time, but top prospect Dylan Carlson likely ranks ahead of Thomas in the pecking order for regular run in the St. Louis outfield. Thomas hasn't helped his case by going a modest 3-for-18 at the plate since being reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list in late August.

      Lane Thomas went 1-for-5 with a double, a walk and a run in a win over the Reds on Tuesday.Thomas was activated from the COVID-19 injured list Monday, and he walked during one plate appearance as a defensive replacement in that night's victory over Cincinnati. Tuesday therefore marked Thomas' first start since July 26, and although the young outfielder wasn't able to contribute much to the St. Louis Cardinals' 16-run outburst, his two-bagger marked his first extra-base hit of the campaign.

      Cardinals' Lane Thomas: Projected to start on bench

      Lane Thomas will seemingly begin the regular season as the fourth outfielder according to comments from manager Mike Shildt following Sunday's intrasquad game, Ben Frederickson of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.Shildt appeared to confirm his starting outfield to begin the season will consist of Tyler O'Neill, Harrison Bader and Dexter Fowler (back) left to right, which naturally leaves Thomas out of the equation for the time being. Thomas did not force Shildt's hand sufficiently in Grapefruit League play or summer camp. The 24-year-old is just 3-for-11 with five strikeouts in summer camp game action overall, although Frederickson makes a case for Thomas potentially muscling his way into at least a timeshare with O'Neill in left field if the former can put together a surge over the last few days before the regular season. Meanwhile, Benjamin Hochman of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch suggests Shildt could get creative with Thomas' opportunities by utilizing the speedy 24-year-old in pinch-running situations and subsequently keeping him in the game as a defensive replacement. The St. Louis Cardinals' skipper recently noted what he sees as Thomas' ability to churn out productive at-bats off the bench and even potentially serve as the designated hitter on occasion.
