  • Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Wild in no-decision

    Hicks pitched four innings against the Mets on Wednesday, allowing two runs on three hits and three walks while striking out five. He did not factor in the decision.

    Hicks struggled mightily with his control throughout the outing, as only 39 of his 82 pitches crossed the plate. He issued a season-high three walks and hit two batters, but he escaped substantial damage as the Mets left five runners on base during his four innings. Hicks has completed five innings only once this season and has issued multiple free passes in each of his past six appearances. Those numbers don't bode well for his fantasy outlook despite the fact that he has struck out over a batter per inning. Hicks' next start is tentatively slated to come at home against Toronto next week.

  • Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Yields three runs

    Hicks (1-3) allowed three runs on three hits and two walks over five innings Friday, striking out three and taking a loss against San Francisco.

    Hicks gave up an RBI single to Luis Gonzalez in the second inning followed by Mike Yastrzemski's two-run double in the third. It was the longest outing of Hicks' MLB career and the first time this season that he allowed more than two runs. His ERA is up to 4.15 with a 21:12 K:BB through 21.2 innings. Hicks is expected to face the Mets on the road next week.

  • Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Slated to start Friday

    Hicks, who was scratched from Thursday's start against the Orioles, will start Friday against the Giants, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    While the Cardinals didn't initially provide an explanation for starting Steven Matz on Thursday, the team simply wanted to give Hicks an additional day of rest between starts. Over his last four appearances, Hicks has posted a 4.97 ERA and 1.34 WHIP in 12.2 innings, and he's failed to last longer than 4.1 innings in any of his starts this year.

  • Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Scratched from scheduled start

    Hicks is no longer scheduled to start Thursday's game against the Orioles in St. Louis, with Steven Matz getting the nod instead, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    The Cardinals didn't provide an immediate explanation for the switch from Hicks to Matz, but it's conceivable that the former is dealing with an injury or illness that might have made him unavailable to pitch. Additional details regarding Hicks' absence should come within the next few hours, but for now, the right-hander projects to make his next start over the weekend against the Giants.

  • Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Posts longest start yet

    Hicks registered a no-decision during Friday's 3-2 win over the Giants, allowing two runs on three hits and two walks with five strikeouts in 4.1 innings.

    Hicks held San Francisco's offense in check early but permitted the first two batters in the fifth to get on base, prompting his removal. Genesis Cabrera subsequently let both runners score, giving Hicks two earned runs allowed in three straight starts. After opening the season with two scoreless relief appearances, the 25-year-old has now allowed seven runs in 12.2 innings across four starts. He'll look to build on the career-high 4.1 innings and 68 pitches as he's scheduled to face Baltimore next week.

  • Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Yields two homers

    Hicks allowed two runs on two hits and two walks with four strikeouts in 3.1 innings in a no-decision versus the Diamondbacks on Sunday. He also hit a batter.

    Both of the hits Hicks allowed left the yard, as he surrendered solo home runs to Jordan Luplow and Christian Walker. The good news is Hicks showed no ill effects from a bruised wrist that took him out of his last start prematurely. The right-hander stretched out to 63 pitches (35 strikes) in this start, his longest of three this season. Through 12.1 innings, he's logged a 3.65 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, 13:8 K:BB and a 1-2 record. He's projected to make his next start on the road in San Francisco.

  • Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Expected to start Sunday

    Hicks (wrist) is listed as the starter for Sunday's game against Arizona, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Hicks exited his previous start Tuesday against the Mets after taking a comebacker off his right wrist. He hasn't been diagnosed with anything worse than a bruise and appears set to avoid missing a start. He's unlikely to pitch deep into Sunday's contest, as he's topped out at three innings this season.

  • Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: X-rays come back negative

    Hicks had X-rays on his right wrist come back negative after leaving Tuesday's game against the Mets, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports

    The 25-year-old was struck on the right wrist by a 97-mph comebacker during Tuesday's start, but it appears he escaped with just a bruise. He gave up two runs on two hits with two walks and a strikeout over two innings before exiting the contest and is in line for the loss. Hicks' next turn through the rotation lines up for Sunday versus Arizona, though it's unclear if he'll be available for that start.

  • Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Exits with bruised wrist

    Hicks was removed from Tuesday's start against the Mets with a right wrist contusion, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    Hicks was struck on the wrist by a 97-mph comebacker during the second inning and initially remained in the game, but he was in clear discomfort on the mound during the third and was lifted after badly spiking a pitch. The right-hander allowed two runs on two hits with two walks and a strikeout over two innings and exited in line for the loss. Hicks' availability for his next turn through the rotation is up in the air as he continues to be evaluated.

  • Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Suffers loss Thursday

    Hicks (1-1) took the loss against Miami on Thursday, pitching three innings and allowing one run on two hits and two walks while striking out three.

    Hicks is working on transitioning from the bullpen to a spot in the rotation, so he was capped at 46 pitches Thursday. The right-hander allowed only a second-inning run and kept the Marlins from registering any extra-base hits, but the Cardinals' offense was shut out, thus handing Hicks his first loss. He'll likely continue to gradually push his pitch count up over his subsequent few starts as he looks to build up to a standard starter's workload. Hicks' next outing is tentatively scheduled to come at home against the Mets early next week.

  • Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Set to start Thursday

    Hicks is scheduled to start Thursday's game against the Marlins, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Hicks was previously penciled in to start Tuesday's contest but was instead pushed back by two days. The 25-year-old threw 35 pitches over two innings during his last outing Sunday in Milwaukee and is expected to be limited to about 45 pitches in his first start of the season.

  • Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Won't start Tuesday

    Hicks won't start Tuesday's game against the Marlins, John Denton of MLB.com reports.

    Hicks was initially slated to make his first start of the season Tuesday in Miami, but he'll instead be available out of the bullpen against the Brewers on Saturday and Sunday. Adam Wainwright will now start Tuesday's series opener against Miami, while manager Oliver Marmol said that he expects Hicks to start late in the series against the Marlins or during the team's series against Cincinnati next weekend.

  • Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Won't start this week

    Manager Oliver Marmol said Hicks is tentatively lined up to make his first start of the season Tuesday against the Marlins in Miami, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Hicks initially appeared poised to pick up two turns through the rotation this week, but postponements of Monday's game against Pittsburgh and Wednesday's game against Kansas City will result in the 25-year-old having to wait a little longer for his first MLB start. Marmol noted that Hicks will be available in relief for the team's four-game series in Milwaukee that begins Thursday, so it's not a lock that the right-hander will be ready to take the hill in Miami if he's pressed into extended innings out of the bullpen against the Brewers. Whenever Hicks does make his first start, he's expected to be capped at around 45 pitches before steadily increasing his pitch count in his subsequent outings.

  • Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Earns win in relief

    Hicks (1-0) pitched two shutout innings, allowing a walk and striking out two to earn the win Tuesday versus the Royals.

    Hicks is expected to enter the rotation officially during this weekend's series versus the Brewers. He was called on in relief Tuesday to maintain his pitching schedule, and he delivered quality innings while throwing 18 of his 27 pitches for strikes. The hard-throwing right-hander has worked as a reliever in his three previous major-league seasons, and it may take him a few turns through the rotation to build up to a starter's workload.

  • Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: First start coming Saturday

    Hicks is scheduled to make his first start of the season Saturday against the Brewers in Milwaukee, John Denton of MLB.com reports.

    Hicks had been on track to start Tuesday's game against the Royals, but the postponement of Monday's contest against the Pirates due to inclement weather in St. Louis prompted the Cardinals to reshuffle their pitching schedule. While previous reports suggested that Hicks would start Sunday's series finale in Milwaukee, he'll instead take the hill Saturday so the Cardinals won't have to add a temporary sixth starter to the mix. Dakota Hudson will stay on turn to start Sunday, assuming his he escapes his first start Tuesday unscathed. Hicks will be available out of the bullpen for that game, but he likely won't be in store for an extended appearance while he preps for his start later in the week. Manager Oliver Marmol suggested that Hicks will be capped at around 45 pitches in that start, and the Cardinals aren't preparing for him to cover more than four innings in any outing until May.

  • Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: First start pushed back to Sunday

    Hicks won't make his first career MLB start until Sunday's game in Milwaukee as a result of the Cardinals' game Monday against the Pirates being postponed due to inclement weather in St. Louis, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    The Cardinals were initially scheduled to play seven games this week, but because of the rainout, the team will be able to reorder its pitching schedule for what will now be a six-game week. According to Goold, Hicks will be available out of the bullpen for Tuesday's game against the Royals if needed before beginning to prepare for Sunday's start. According to Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat, the Cardinals plan to cap Hicks at around 45 pitches in his first start, and the right-hander is expected to be built up slowly from there. Manager Oliver Marmol suggested Monday that the Cardinals will be content if Hicks is able to reach four innings in his starts by the beginning of May, so the 25-year-old could struggle to work deep enough in his initial starts to factor into a decision.

  • Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Targeting 45 pitches

    Hicks is expected to throw around 45 pitches in his start Tuesday against the Royals, and he may not even reach that mark, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    The Cardinals made the surprising decision to convert Hicks to a starting role this spring, sticking to that commitment despite suggestions from early in March that the shortened spring training may scrap those plans. Hicks does have 10 career relief outings of at least two innings, so he's no stranger to slightly extended appearances, but he's never gotten anywhere close to a true starter's workload at the big-league level. He won't get there Tuesday, either, which will make it all but impossible for him to secure a win.

  • Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Named fifth starter

    Manager Oliver Marmol said Wednesday that Hicks will be part of the Cardinals' Opening Day rotation, John Denton of MLB.com reports. Hicks will make his first start Tuesday against the Royals in St. Louis.

    The Cardinals said at the end of March that Hicks would serve as a reliever in 2022 with a potential for save chances, but the club will reverse course with Jack Flaherty (shoulder) on the injured list to begin the regular season. The right-hander hasn't yet started at the major-league level, and he posted a 5.40 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in 10 innings across 10 relief appearances last year. Despite his low innings counts over the past three years, the Cardinals are viewing him as a traditional starter rather than an opener, according to Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat. Hicks may have lighter workloads in his first couple of outings, but the Cardinals plan to have him steadily build up his pitch counts during his starts.
