  • Cardinals' Steven Matz: Nearing mound work

    Matz (knee) could throw off a mound this weekend, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports. Per Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat, Matz played catch off a mound Wednesday and did some running on the field, so throwing pitches off the mound would mark another step forward in his recovery from a torn MCL in his left knee. Matz is still likely a week or more away from beginning a minor-league rehab assignment, so he's not expected to be a rotation option for the Cardinals until September at the soonest.

  • Cardinals' Steven Matz: Throws on field pregame

    Matz (knee) has begun a throwing program, which included flat-ground throwing prior to Saturday's game, John Denton of MLB.com reports. Denton adds Matz remains optimistic that he'll return before the end of the season. He's still early in the rehab process, so Matz isn't expected back before September at the earliest due to a torn MCL in his left knee. A clearer picture of his recovery timeline should emerge once he begins to face hitters.

  • Cardinals' Steven Matz: Surgery not yet certain

    The Cardinals, according to Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat, will wait a week before deciding whether or not Matz will need surgery on his injured left knee. It was reported Sunday that Matz has a torn MCL in his left knee, and if he goes under the knife he will miss the rest of the season. There remains a chance he could recover without undergoing a procedure, though, and the Cardinals will wait and see how things play out. While he could still pitch again in 2022, Matz is looking at a minimum 4-to-6 week absence regardless of the final decision that is made.

  • Cardinals' Steven Matz: Dealing with torn MCL

    Matz has been diagnosed with a torn left MCL, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports. Matz landed on the 15-day injured list with a knee issue Sunday and will visit with the team surgeon Monday to determine whether he'll require a procedure to address the issue. Manager Oliver Marmol didn't rule out the possibility of Matz returning to the field this season, but it seems likely that he'll be forced to spend more than the minimum of 15 days on the injured list. Marmol said that the team will be able to use a four-man rotation until early August since Dakota Hudson (neck) seems to be closing in on a return.

  • Cardinals' Steven Matz: Moves to injured list

    Matz was placed on the 15-day injured list Sunday with a left knee sprain. Matz exited Saturday's start with the injury and will be sidelined for at least a few turns through the rotation. It's unclear if the left-hander is expected to be available when first eligible to be reinstated Aug. 9. Matthew Liberatore is likely to rejoin the Cardinals as a starting option with the team now down Matz and Dakota Hudson (neck).

  • Cardinals' Steven Matz: Suffers left knee strain

    Matz suffered a left knee strain in Saturday's start against the Reds, John Denton of MLB.com reports. Matz left Saturday's outing with what was originally reported to be a right ankle injury, but it has now been determined that he strained his left knee while trying to field a ball at first base in the sixth inning. Unfortunately, the left-hander will likely be placed on the 15-day injured list after making just one start since his last trip to the IL.

  • Cardinals' Steven Matz: Rolls ankle, leaves start early

    Matz left Saturday's start against the Reds in the sixth inning after he rolled his right ankle, John Denton of MLB.com reports. Matz rolled his right ankle trying to field a ball at first base with one out in the sixth inning Saturday against the Reds, forcing him to exit the contest early. Making his first start after being activated from the 15-day injured list July 17, the left-hander pitched 5.1 innings, allowing two runs on three hits and a walk while striking out seven before exiting. Junior Fernandez replaced him on the mound and Matz can be considered day-to-day for the time being.

  • Cardinals' Steven Matz: Sleeper pitchers for short Week 16 (July 21-24)

    Matz was set to return from a shoulder impingement just before the break but had his final start rained out. You never know what to expect from a pitcher returning from injury, particularly one who was struggling before it, but the track record and matchup (Reds) are both decent.

  • Cardinals' Steven Matz: Cardinals-Reds postponed Sunday

    Matz (shoulder) and the Cardinals won't face the Reds on Sunday after the game was postponed due to inclement weather in St. Louis, John Denton of MLB.com reports. Matz, who was reinstated from the 15-day injured list Sunday, will thus have to wait until after the All-Star break to make his first start with the big club since May 22. The Cardinals and Reds will make up the postponed game Sept. 17 as part of a split doubleheader.

  • Cardinals' Steven Matz: Comes off IL

    The Cardinals reinstated Matz (shoulder) from the 15-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the Reds in St. Louis, John Denton of MLB.com reports. Matz will make his return to the St. Louis rotation for what will be his first start since May 22 after he needed extended time off to recover from a left shoulder impingement. During his most recent rehab start at Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday, Matz built up to 4.1 innings and 81 pitches, so he should face only a light workload restriction Sunday.

  • Cardinals' Steven Matz: Starting Sunday

    Matz (shoulder) will be reinstated from the 15-day injured list to start Sunday's game against the Reds, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports. Matz hasn't pitched for the Cardinals since May 22 due to left shoulder inflammation, but he recently made four rehab appearances at Triple-A Memphis and posted a 2.13 ERA, 17:3 K:BB and 0.95 WHIP in 12.2 innings. The southpaw made four starts in May prior to landing on the injured list, and he logged a 5.95 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in 19.2 innings over that span.

  • Cardinals' Steven Matz: Targeting Sunday return

    Matz (shoulder) is targeting a return from the 15-day injured list for Sunday's game versus the Reds, John Denton of MLB.com reports. Matz pitched well in his fourth rehab appearance Tuesday, striking out seven while allowing two hits and two walks in 4.1 innings for Triple-A Memphis. He threw 81 pitches in that contest for Memphis, which suggests he'd have only a minimal workload restriction, if any, should he return Sunday. Matz has been out with the shoulder injury since May 22.

  • Cardinals' Steven Matz: Requires one more rehab start

    Cardinals president of baseball operations said Friday that Matz (shoulder) will make one more minor-league rehab start before returning from the 15-day injured list, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports. Matz completed his third rehab start Thursday with Triple-A Memphis, working 3.1 innings while striking out four and allowing two earned runs on two hits and one walk. Since Matz exited after throwing 59 pitches, the Cardinals will likely want to see the lefty get stretched out to the 70-to-80-pitch range in his upcoming rehab start before bringing him back from the IL. Matz is likely to make his next minor-league appearance Tuesday before potentially slotting back into the St. Louis rotation for the Cardinals' final game of the first half July 17 against the Reds.

  • Cardinals' Steven Matz: Making third rehab start Thursday

    Matz (shoulder) is scheduled to make the third start of his rehab assignment Thursday with Triple-A Memphis, John Denton of MLB.com reports. According to Denton, the Cardinals had considered bringing Matz back from the 15-day injured list to start Thursday's series finale in Atlanta, but the organization's brain trust ultimately decided he was better off getting stretched out in the minors for one more outing. After he worked three innings and tossed 45 pitches his last time out for Memphis on Saturday, he'll be aiming for around four innings and 60 pitches Thursday. He'll report back to St. Louis following the start to be re-evaluated, and if the Cardinals are satisfied with the condition of his shoulder, he should be activated and re-enter the rotation during the final week before the All-Star break.

  • Cardinals' Steven Matz: Tosses three innings in rehab start

    Matz (shoulder) made the second start of his rehab assignment Saturday with Triple-A Memphis, striking out three over three innings while allowing one earned run on four hits and no walks. Pitching on three days' rest after making a two-inning rehab start for Memphis on Wednesday, Matz was capped at 45 pitches Saturday. He'll likely require at least one or two more outings in the minors to ramp up his pitch count before the Cardinals activate him from the 15-day injured list and reinstall him in the rotation.

  • Cardinals' Steven Matz: Two rehab starts this week

    Matz (shoulder) is slated to build up to 30 pitches in his rehab start Tuesday for Triple-A Memphis and will attempt to throw 45 pitches in a second rehab start this weekend, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports. Given this slow progression, Matz figures to need at least a third rehab start before he's ready to join the big-league rotation, unless the Cardinals opt to bring him back for what would amount to a bullpen game next week. He could return right before the All-Star break if all goes well.

  • Cardinals' Steven Matz: Throws bullpen session

    Matz (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Saturday, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports. Matz progressed to throwing from flat ground last week, and he's now advanced to pitching off a mound. He's still likely a few weeks away from a return -- he'll need additional bullpen sessions without setbacks before throwing live batting practice, and it's expected the southpaw will ultimately need multiple rehab starts. Matz's absence is now expected to stretch at least into mid-July.

  • Cardinals' Steven Matz: Throwing again

    Matz (shoulder) threw off flat ground Sunday, Joe Harris of MLB.com reports. Matz, who recently hit a snag in his recovery from left shoulder inflammation, said Sunday marked his "best day" since being placed on the 15-day injured list May 23. The southpaw will need to graduate to mound work and resume facing hitters before the Cardinals send him out on a minor-league rehab assignment likely consisting of one or two starts.

  • Cardinals' Steven Matz: Hits setback

    Matz (shoulder) has yet to throw off of a mound, John Denton of MLB.com reports. Matz was expected to throw side sessions Thursday and Sunday, but it appears those plans are now on hold after his setback. It was already determined the left-hander would need a rehab appearance, but he'll need to build back up a bit and begin a throwing program before that can happen. As such, Matz shouldn't be expected back until late June at the earliest.

  • Cardinals' Steven Matz: Requires rehab appearance

    Matz (shoulder) will require at least one rehab appearance prior to rejoining the Cardinals' rotation, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports. Matz is scheduled to throw side sessions Thursday and Sunday, but he'll be forced to miss at least one more turn through the rotation since he'll make an appearance with a minor-league affiliate. The Cardinals haven't yet revealed who will step in as a starter next week, but manager Oliver Marmol listed Andre Pallante, Zack Thompson, Johan Oviedo, Packy Naughton and Jake Woodford as candidates for a spot start.
