Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Moves up from Triple-A
The Cardinals recalled Woodford from Triple-A Memphis on Wednesday.
St. Louis will bring Woodford aboard as a replacement in the bullpen for the struggling T.J. McFarland, who was designated for assignment in a corresponding transaction. Woodford has been a full-time starter at Memphis this season, so he'll be stretched out enough to serve as a multi-inning relief option while he's with the big club.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Optioned to Triple-A
Woodford was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Saturday.
Woodford spent nearly a week in the Cardinals' bullpen and tossed 1.2 scoreless innings over two appearances during his stint with the major-league club. However, he'll head back to the minors after Jordan Hicks (forearm) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Recalled by Cardinals
Woodford was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Saturday.
Woodford was sent to Memphis on June 6, and he posted a 4.38 ERA and 1.62 WHIP in 12.1 innings over three minor-league appearances since then. The right-hander should provide length out of the Cardinals' bullpen after Genesis Cabrera (undisclosed) was placed on the injured list Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Moves back to minors
The Cardinals optioned Woodford to Triple-A Memphis on Saturday.
Woodford moved back to the minors after he was up with the Cardinals as the 27th man for Friday's doubleheader with the Cubs. He worked in long relief of starter Johan Oviedo in the Cardinals' 6-1 loss in Game 1, covering three innings while allowing three earned runs on five hits and one walk.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Called up as 27th man
Woodford was recalled from Triple-A Memphis to serve as the 27th man in Saturday's doubleheader against the Cubs.
Woodford has made eight relief appearances for the Cardinals this year, and he's posted a 2.25 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 16 innings. He was in the mix to start one of the two games during Saturday's twin bill but will be available out of the bullpen since Johan Oviedo is starting the matinee while Andre Pallante takes the mound in the second game....

Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Optioned to Triple-A
Woodford was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Monday, John Denton of MLB.com reports.
In a move to open a roster spot for Monday's starter Packy Naughton, Woodford was returned to Triple-A on Monday. The right-hander was originally in the mix to start Monday's contest, but after he pitched three innings of one-run ball out of the bullpen Saturday versus the Brewers he was no longer in a position to toe the rubber against the Padres. He'll remain a favorite for a call up moving forward, potentially returning for Saturday's doubleheader against the Cubs.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Won't start Monday
Woodford won't start Monday against the Padres after he pitched out of the bullpen during Saturday's game against the Brewers, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Woodford was in the mix to serve as the starter during Monday's series opener against San Diego, but he threw 39 pitches (29 strikes) over three innings Saturday. While the right-hander was effective against Milwaukee and picked up his first hold of the season, he'll no longer draw the start Monday. The Cardinals haven't yet announced a starter for Monday's matchup, but Packy Naughton seems like a strong candidate to take the mound, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports....

Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Rejoins major-league club
Woodford was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Thursday.
Woodford has been in the minors the past 10 days but will return to St. Louis with Jordan Hicks (forearm) headed to the injured list. According to Katie Woo of The Athletic, he will initially be available out of the bullpen but should be in the mix to fill Hicks' spot in the rotation early next week. Woodford has appeared in seven big-league games this season and has a 2.08 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 9:6 K:BB across 13 innings.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Optioned to minors
Woodford was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Sunday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
The 25-year-old has a 2.08 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 9:6 K:BB over 13 innings this year but will head to the minors with Adam Wainwright (illness) returning from the COVID-19 injured list Sunday. Woodford also had a 3.99 ERA across 67.2 innings for the Cardinals in 2021, so it's only a matter of time before he rejoins the big-league club.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Effective in longest appearance
Woodford allowed an unearned run on two hits and a walk with two strikeouts in 3.1 innings in Saturday's 13-7 loss to the Giants.
Woodford was again called upon for a multi-inning assignment after Steven Matz yielded eight runs in two innings. Woodford proceeded to turn in a quality relief appearance. The right-hander continues to see mostly mop-up duty, but he's pitched to a 2.25 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 8:4 K:BB across 12 innings in his six appearances.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Picks up win
Woodford (1-0) earned the win Wednesday versus the Mets, allowing one run on three hits while striking out two in two innings.
Starter Steven Matz was tagged for four runs in four innings, so he wasn't eligible for the win despite leaving with a lead. Woodford covered the fifth and sixth innings before giving way to Genesis Cabrera after a leadoff single in the seventh. That runner came around to score, accounting for the first run charged to Woodford across six innings this season. He's also given up five hits with a 6:2 K:BB in his three outings as a multi-inning reliever.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Solid in season debut
Woodford allowed two hits and a walk while striking out three in three scoreless innings in Sunday's 9-4 loss to the Pirates.
Woodford was in contention for the fifth spot in the starting rotation right to the end of spring training, but Jordan Hicks ultimately won the job. Woodford's first turn as a long reliever this season was strong after Steven Matz (finger) was hit hard in three innings and developed a blister. The 25-year-old Woodford will continue to operate out of the bullpen, where he'll give the Cardinals a multi-inning option. That will limit his fantasy appeal, as his groundball style doesn't lead to enough strikeouts to make up for his lack of a starting role.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Headed to bullpen
Woodford is slated to open the season as a member of St. Louis' bullpen, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
Woodford and Drew VerHagen were both in contention for the fifth starter's role, but the two will instead head to the bullpen as multi-inning options after manager Oliver Marmol announced Wednesday that Jordan Hicks secured the final opening in the rotation. Hicks has been slowly building up his pitch count during spring and isn't likely to work deep into his first start Tuesday against the Royals, so Woodford could be called upon to piggyback him in that outing, if needed. Beyond that game, however, Hicks is expected to be deployed as a traditional starter, so forecasting when Woodford might be used out of the bullpen could be a difficult endeavor.... See More ...

Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Competing for rotation spot
Woodford will compete to be the Cardinals' fifth starter, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.
Woodford and Drew VerHagen appear to have the inside edge for the fifth spot in the rotation after news broke of Jack Flaherty (shoulder) being unavailable for Opening Day. In his second major-league season, Woodford started in eight of his 26 appearances. He posted a steady 3.99 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 50:25 K:BB across 67.2 innings. He lacks velocity with an average fastball of 91.7 mph last season, and it's likely the right-hander bounces between the rotation and the bullpen throughout 2022.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Takes loss in final start
Woodford (3-4) was tagged with the loss Sunday against the Cubs after allowing three runs on six hits and a walk while fanning four across five innings.
Woodford had given up two or fewer runs in each of his previous five outings, but he didn't have his best stuff for the season finale and was tagged for this fourth loss of the campaign. Starting as a reliever but ending as a starter, Woodford made eight starts across 26 appearances on the season. He ends his second year at the MLB level with a 3.99 ERA across 67.2 innings, a step in the right direction considering he posted a 5.57 ERA through 21 frames in 2020.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Allows two runs in no-decision
Woodford allowed two earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out one across 5.2 innings in the win over the Cubs on Sunday. He did not factor into the decision.
Woodford allowed both runs in the fourth inning on three hits, including a ground-rule double by Sergio Alcantara. He has given up just five runs over 23.2 innings in his last five starts. The 24-year-old has a 3.88 ERA and 1.34 WHIP with 46 punchouts in 62.2 innings this season. This was likely his last start of the regular season.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Optioned and recalled
Woodford was optioned Friday but immediately recalled Saturday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
The unusual set of transactions should have minimal impact on Woodford, who's still scheduled to start Sunday against the Cubs. He was the player sent down when Dakota Hudson returned from an elbow injury Friday but was allowed to return just one day later when Justin Miller hit the injured list with an elbow injury of his own....

Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Hurls five shutout innings
Woodford (3-3) allowed two hits and one walk while striking out five across five scoreless innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Brewers.
Woodford turned in his second scoreless start in his last four outings, thanks in large part to generating 10 flyball outs. Since being recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Sept. 3, Woodford has allowed only three earned runs across 18.1 innings in the span of four appearances. Though he's served as a starter in each of his last three appearances, Woodford may lose that role with Jack Flaherty (shoulder) lining up to return Friday.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Start pushed back
Woodford won't start Monday against Milwaukee as previously expected but is listed as Tuesday's starter instead, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
The move keeps Jon Lester on schedule and will result in Woodford getting an extra day of rest. Woodford still has a good chance at a two-start week, as he's now lined up to start against the Cubs on Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Pitches four in start
Woodford pitched four innings while allowing two runs on four hits and two walks without registering any strikeouts in the win over the Mets on Tuesday. He did not factor into the game's decision.
The 24-year-old surrendered both runs in the first inning on consecutive RBI singles by Michael Conforto and Javier Baez. It was the second consecutive four-inning outing for the right hander as the Cardinals have capped his innings. In his last three starts, he has posted a strong 2.03 ERA and 0.98 WHIP over 13.1 innings. He's projected to start next versus the Brewers on Monday.... See More ... See Less
