  • Cardinals' Harrison Bader: Records eighth steal

    Bader went 1-for-5 with a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's 15-6 win over the Giants.

    Bader wasn't overly impressive in the blowout win, but it's encouraging to see him notch his eighth steal of the season after dealing with heel soreness. The outfielder has yet to be caught stealing this season. He's added a .231/.300/.352 slash line with three home runs, 10 RBI and 18 runs scored in 120 plate appearances.

  • Cardinals' Harrison Bader: Rejoins lineup Sunday

    Bader (heel) is starting in center field and batting eighth Sunday against the Giants, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Bader was held out of the lineup Saturday due to heel soreness, but his absence will be limited to one game. In five games since recording his first three-hit game of the season May 7, the 27-year-old is 2-for-14 with a home run, a walk, three RBI and two runs.

  • Cardinals' Harrison Bader: Managing heel soreness

    Bader isn't starting Saturday's game against the Giants due to heel soreness, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Although manager Oliver Marmol said Saturday that Bader is "totally fine," the team will elect to hold him out for Saturday's day game after the team played a night game Friday. It's possible the 27-year-old will be available off the bench, and the Cardinals don't sound too concerned about his injury.

    Bader isn't starting Saturday against the Giants.

  • Cardinals' Harrison Bader: Resting Thursday

    Bader is not in the lineup Thursday against the Orioles, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

  • Cardinals' Harrison Bader: Hits inside-the-park homer

    Bader went 1-for-3 with a two-run, inside-the-park home run in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Orioles.

    Bader hit the ball to deep left-center field, and he showed off his speed to get all the way around the bases. This was the outfielder's third homer of the season, though he's no stranger to using his speed with seven stolen bases on his stat line. He's added 10 RBI, 16 runs scored and a .242/.318/.379 slash line across 107 plate appearances. With hits in six of nine games in May, he has yet to go on a tear strong enough to justify moving him up from the bottom half of the order.

  • Cardinals' Harrison Bader: Racks up three hits, stolen base

    Bader went 3-for-4 with a walk, two runs and a stolen base Saturday in a loss against the Giants.

    Bader came into the contest hitting just .172 (5-for29) over his previous eight games, but he broke out of the slump with his first three-hit game of the campaign against San Francisco. The speedy outfielder also swiped a bag to give him seven thefts on the campaign. Bader hasn't been caught stealing this season and appears on his way to eclipsing the career-best 15 thefts he collected in 2018.

  • Cardinals' Harrison Bader: Launches second home run

    Bader went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a 3-2 win against the Giants on Friday.

    Bader got St. Louis on the board with a two-run shot to left in the fifth for his second home run of May after failing to go deep in April. Despite the power surge, the speedy outfielder is 4-for-24 through six May games and has seen his average fall 22 points to .224 over the stretch. Bader will need to pick up the pace if he intends to approach last season's career high of 16 long balls.

  • Cardinals' Harrison Bader: Gets Wednesday off

    Bader is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mets, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    He'll take a seat for the second time this season with the Cardinals wrapping up their series with the Mets with a day game after a night game. Dylan Carlson will slide over from right field to assume Bader's usual duties in center field, while Corey Dickerson picks up first start of the season in the outfield.

    Bader went 0-for-2 with two walks, two runs scored and three stolen bases in Saturday's win over the Reds.

  • Cardinals' Harrison Bader: Agrees to two-year deal

    Bader signed a two-year, $10.4 million contract with the Cardinals on Saturday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    Bader and the Cardinals were unable to settle on an agreement prior to the arbitration deadline this spring, but he'll now land a deal that covers his final two years of arbitration. The 27-year-old has slashed .348/.375/.435 with two doubles, six RBI, a run, a stolen base, a walk and five strikeouts across eight Grapefruit League appearances this spring. Although the Cardinals added Corey Dickerson during the offseason, Bader is expected to see plenty of playing time to begin the 2022 campaign.

  • Cardinals' Harrison Bader: Solidifying everyday role

    Bader is 8-for-23 with two doubles, six RBI and a run scored through eight Grapefruit League games.

    Bader enters 2022 as the presumptive starting center fielder, though the Cardinals' outfield is a bit crowded with the addition of Corey Dickerson this spring. There's little reason for Bader to be concerned about a reduced role -- he slashed .267/.324/.460 with 16 home runs, 50 RBI, 45 runs scored and nine stolen bases in 103 games last season. Competition should keep him sharp, but the 27-year-old will likely be in the lineup more often than not. Bader is still expected to hit more toward the bottom of the order, which means he'll likely be batting ninth now that the designated hitter is universal, though the Cardinals boast a formidable starting nine.
