Player Outlook
Nolan Gorman hit 14 homers with a .720 OPS in 89 games as a rookie in 2022, and he took a step forward last season with 27 home runs, 76 RBI and a .236/.328/.478 line in 119 contests. He missed some time due to back issues and finished the season on the IL due to a hamstring strain, but he should be healthy by spring training. Gorman improved his walk rate to 11.5 percent and also cut his strikeout rate a tick, but his 31.9 percent figure is still unsightly. He made 75 starts at second base and 12 at third but is a subpar defender, which could line him up for more time at designated hitter (where he made 27 starts). Gorman appears to have settled in against big-league pitching despite the heavy swing-and-miss in his stroke, and he's done so with a sustainable .298 BABIP. He should open 2024 with a regular spot in the Cardinals' lineup and certainly has upside if he's able to make a bit more contact, though that shouldn't be the expectation since his issues with strikeouts have persisted through the minors..

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Sitting against left-hander

    Gorman is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports. Gorman clubbed a tie-breaking, two-run home run earlier Wednesday in the completion of Tuesday's suspended game, but he will take a seat versus left-hander John Means for the regularly scheduled contest. Brendan Donovan will replace Gorman at second base.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Sitting out Wednesday

    Gorman is not in the lineup for Wednesday's series finale versus the Orioles, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports. The lefty-hitting Gorman will take a seat for Wednesday's contest, as the Orioles are starting southpaw John Means. Gorman was excellent for the Cardinals in Tuesday's contest, which spilled into Wednesday after being suspended due to inclement weather. He went 2-for-2 with a two-run home run, an RBI double and a walk in the contest. The second baseman is now slashing .207/.303/.421 with eight homers, 21 RBI, 18 runs scored, seven doubles and a stolen base over 165 plate appearances this season.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Heads to bench Sunday

    Gorman is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports. Gorman has homered in back-to-back games, but the strikeouts are piling up. He's struck out 10 times in his last 16 at-bats, bringing his K-rate to 35 percent through 157 plate appearances this season. Brendan Donovan will start at second base Sunday as Alec Burleson takes over in left field and Matt Carpenter starts at DH.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Homers in back-to-back games

    Gorman went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, an RBI single and two total runs scored in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Red Sox. Gorman has homered in each of the last two games, and he's gone deep three times with three multi-hit efforts over his last seven contests. The second baseman is up to a .201/.293/.396 slash line through 157 plate appearances after hitting as low as .172 and slugging as little as .319 on May 9. He's added seven homers, 18 RBI, 16 runs scored, six doubles and no stolen bases over 40 games while seeing a majority of the playing time at the keystone this year.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Swats homer in win

    Gorman went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 10-6 win over the Red Sox. Gorman's bat is coming around -- he's 6-for-19 (.316) with two homers and four RBI over his last six games. The second baseman took Boston starter Brayan Bello deep in the second inning of this contest. Gorman is up to a .193/.288/.370 slash line with six homers, 16 RBI, 14 runs scored, no stolen bases and six doubles through 153 plate appearances, and he's not helping his cause to remain in an everyday role with a 34.6 percent strikeout rate. While the threat isn't immediate, Gorman could be one of the players to see a reduced role once Tommy Edman (wrist) is able to return to action.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Day off Wednesday

    Gorman isn't in the Cardinals' lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports. Gorman will get a day to clear his head after striking out four times during Tuesday's win over the Halos. Brendan Donovan will fill in at the keystone Wednesday while Alec Burleson, Mike Siani and Lars Nootbaar start across the outfield.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Homers off bench Friday

    Gorman hit a solo home run in his lone at-bat during Friday's 11-2 loss to the Brewers. Gorman entered the game as a defensive replacement after the Brewers turned it into a rout, and his ninth-inning blast ended the 24-year-old's 0-for-14 skid to begin the month of May. The second baseman is slashing a meager .179/.262/.350 with five homers, 13 RBI, nine runs scored, five doubles and no stolen bases over 130 plate appearances. Gorman began the year in a near-everyday role at the keystone, but he's now sat out against the last three southpaws the Cardinals have faced, with Jose Fermin picking up the playing time. Gorman had reverse splits last season and that has carried over into 2024, but he's simply not hitting well enough overall to justify a full-time role.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Sitting versus left-hander

    Gorman is not in the starting lineup for Friday's contest with the Brewers, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports. Gorman will take a seat as left-hander Robert Gasser makes his major-league debut on the mound for Milwaukee. Jose Fermin will draw the start at second base in his place and bat leadoff against the Brewers.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Hits bench against lefty

    Gorman is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mets. The lefty-hitting Gorman will hit the bench for the third time in the four games while the Cardinals have faced a steady diet of left-handed pitching of late. The right-handed-hitting Jose Fermin will man the keystone while Gorman sits against Mets southpaw Jose Quintana.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Out against lefty

    Gorman is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Mets. The Cardinals are facing a left-handed starting pitcher (Sean Manaea) for the second day in a row, so the lefty-hitting Gorman will once again head to the bench. Jose Fermin will fill in for Gorman at second base.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Gorman is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports. Gorman is 1-for-17 with four walks and five strikeouts over his past six games, and he'll receive a day to reset Sunday. Jose Fermin is starting at the keystone and batting eighth in the series finale versus Chicago.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Breaks slump with walk-off blast

    Gorman hit a two-run, walk-off home run in his lone at-bat in Monday's 5-3 win over the Diamondbacks. Gorman was given Monday off, but he ultimately entered the game as a defensive replacement. His lone at-bat ended the game, as he took Kyle Nelson deep in the ninth inning to complete the Cardinals' comeback win. Gorman has four homers, 10 RBI, six runs scored and three doubles over 84 plate appearances this season, but he's slashing just .179/.238/.372 and striking out at a 38.1 percent clip, so he's not out of the woods yet. Gorman should continue to play against most right-handers, but he'll rarely be in the lineup versus southpaws.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Not in Monday's lineup

    Gorman is absent from the lineup for Monday's game against the Diamondbacks. Gorman was demoted to the eighth spot in the Cardinals lineup for Sunday's 2-0 loss to the Brewers and now finds himself out of the starting nine altogether. Over his last four contests, Gorman has gone 0-for-17 with 10 strikeouts. Gorman could receive more frequent days off if his slump persists much longer.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Not starting Tuesday

    Gorman is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Athletics, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports. Gorman started the previous 11 games but will take a seat after he posted a .746 OPS during that stretch. Ivan Herrera will receive a turn as St. Louis' designated hitter Tuesday.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Adds another homer

    Gorman went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Phillies. Gorman broke a scoreless tie with a 419-foot blast to center field off Zack Wheeler in the fourth. Gorman now leads the Cardinals early on with three homers and showed his power upside a year ago by hitting 27 home runs.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Goes deep twice

    Gorman went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in Sunday's loss to the Marlins. Gorman was the only source of run support for the Cardinals in a game that got ugly for them very quick. The 24-year-old showed off his raw power, sending both home runs 400-plus feet to center field, awarding fantasy managers who patiently waited for his bat to get going after just two extra-base hits in his first 33 at-bats of the year. The 24-year-old slugger is hitting .222/.300/.444 with a concerning 42.5 strikeout rate early on.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Gets breather Tuesday

    Gorman isn't in the Cardinals' lineup for Tuesday's game against San Diego. Gorman has recorded a base hit in each of his last four games, but he'll get a day off Tuesday. His absence will move Brendan Donovan into second base, allowing Mike Siani to start in left field and bat eighth.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Too many whiffs

    Gorman has gone 2-for-13 with a double, six strikeouts and a walk over five Grapefruit League games. Gorman struck out at a 31.9 percent clip in 2023, so it's not unusual to see him whiffing a lot. He's still expected to have a starting role in the Cardinals' lineup, likely at designated hitter, but he could also split time with utility man Brendan Donovan at second base with Tommy Edman (wrist) likely to be in center field once he's ready to play. Gorman has slugged 41 homers over 208 career games, offering solid power while being an anchor on batting average.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Lands on IL with hamstring strain

    St. Louis placed Gorman on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a Grade 2 right hamstring strain. Gorman suffered the injury while legging out an infield single in Tuesday's win at Baltimore and could be in danger of missing the remainder of the 2023 campaign. The 23-year-old slugger holds an .805 OPS with 27 homers and 76 RBI through 119 games this season with the Cardinals, who have called up Juniel Querecuto from Triple-A Memphis in a corresponding roster move.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Exits with hamstring tightness

    Gorman was removed from Tuesday's game against the Orioles due to right hamstring tightness, Lynn Worthy of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Gorman had to leave Tuesday's game after injuring himself while legging out an infield single in the second inning. There's still no word on how severe Gorman's injury is, but the Cardinals will likely offer more details before Wednesday's contest. Fantasy managers should consider him day-to-day for the time being.
