Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Slim chance of returning
Manager Oliver Marmol said Wednesday that Gorman (hamstring) has a "slim" chance of returning before the end of the season, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
Gorman was placed on the 10-day injured list last Wednesday because of a Grade 2 right hamstring strain and the out-of-contention Cardinals have no real reason to rush him back for the final week. Tommy Edman, Jose Fermin and Juniel Querecuto are currently rotating in at second base.... See More ... See Less

Gorman went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run, a walk, a stolen base and three total runs in an 11-6 win against Atlanta on Wednesday.
After snapping a 16-game homer drought with a pair of long balls Tuesday, Gorman went deep again Wednesday, smashing a 414-foot, three-run shot in the eighth inning to cap a big offensive night by the Cardinals. Prior to the two-game power surge, Gorman had been struggling mightily, batting .169 with a 40.6 percent strikeout rate since the start of August. The punchouts haven't gone away -- Gorman has six over his past three contests -- but it's hard to complain about those since he's knocked in eight runs over that stretch.... See More ... See Less

The Cardinals reinstated Gorman (back) from the injured list Friday, Lynn Worthy of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Gorman landed on the injured list last week with a lower-back strain and will now return after a minimum stay.

Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: On track for Friday return
Gorman (back) is expected to be activated from the 10-day injured list Friday as long as he gets through a full workout Wednesday with no setbacks, John Denton of MLB.com reports.
Gorman was forced to the IL last week with a balky back, an injury which he initially suffered back during the 2020-21 offseason during a weightlifting incident. He's feeling much better following a pain-killing injection and appears on track for activation when first eligible this weekend as the Cardinals travel to Philadelphia.... See More ... See Less

Gorman (back) is scheduled to receive a pain-killing injection Thursday, John Denton of MLB.com reports.
Gorman was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, retroactive to Aug. 14, with a lower-back strain. The second baseman has been dealing with ongoing back discomfort since late July. The injection was going to keep him sidelined for at least the next three days, so the Cardinals opted to put him on the IL and bring up Richie Palacios. It's possible Gorman could return when first eligible Aug. 25 in Philadelphia.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Thinks he could DH Thursday
Gorman (back) believes he could be available at least as a designated hitter Thursday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Gorman is dealing with a nagging back injury which he actually initially suffered back in 2020-21 offseason during a weightlifting incident. It's more of an issue for him in the field when he has to bend over to field grounders, so it's possible he could stay on the roster but be limited to DH duty for a while. The Cardinals could also opt to go ahead and put him on the injured list to give him some extended rest, especially since they have a few other players that are also banged up.... See More ...

Gorman (back) will start at second base and bat third Wednesday against the Twins.
Gorman was on the bench for the Cardinals' last two games due to back soreness, but he'll be healthy enough to play the field Wednesday.
