Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Shifts to 45-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikolas (forearm) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Tuesday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The move won't have any effect on Mikolas' return timeline, as he's already been ruled out for the year due to surgery on his right flexor tendon. The move creates a spot on the 40-man roster for the Cardinals to add a player once their season eventually resumes following their COVID-19 outbreak.

Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Set for season-ending surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikolas will undergo surgery on his right flexor tendon and will miss the remainder of the season, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Mikolas' forearm issues date back to the end of last season, though he was able to throw throughout summer camp. Notably, the procedure he'll undergo is not Tommy John surgery, so he won't be forced to miss the entirety of the 2021 campaign as well. He's expected to be ready for the start of next season. Daniel Ponce de Leon will take his place in the rotation and will start Wednesday against the Twins.

Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Lands on 10-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikolas was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a right forearm strain.

Mikolas was dealing with a strained right flexor tendon in his forearm heading into summer camp, and the issue appears to have resurfaced. It's unclear how much time he'll miss as a result of the setback. The right-hander was scheduled to make his 2020 debut Wednesday and a replacement starter hasn't yet been named.

Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Scheduled to start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikolas will start Wednesday's game against the Twins, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

Mikolas threw 60 pitches in his final tuneup of summer camp, and he'll receive the nod for Wednesday's contest in Minnesota. After a career season in 2018, the right-hander posted a 4.16 ERA and 1.22 WHIP over 184 innings across 32 starts last season.

Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Ups workload Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikolas worked up to 60 pitches in Friday's intrasquad game start, allowing two runs on three hits across five innings, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

The right-hander threw 33 of his pitches for strikes and surrendered a two-run homer to Matt Carpenter, but he was largely effective overall while also increasing his pitch count by seven over his prior outing Sunday. Mikolas appears to be on track to open the season in his expected role of No. 2 starter.

Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Impresses in intrasquad game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikolas threw 53 pitches over 2.2 innings in an intrasquad game Sunday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

The veteran right-hander was besieged by multiple errors behind him in the third and final frame, but no ball hit off Mikolas left the infield Sunday. Mikolas was actually perfect through two innings and recorded strikeouts of Kolten Wong and Matt Carpenter, making it a successful afternoon overall. The 31-year-old was able to use both his inside fastball and offspeed pitches effectively as he tried to emulate a regular-season mindset. "It's an intrasquad and we're teammates, but for that short amount of time, I'm not trying to be your friend," Mikolas said. "I'm trying to get ready for the season, and I think as these games get even closer and these intrasquad games get stretched out even longer, I think you're going to see even more of an edge and maybe some trash-talking and maybe guys getting more gritty."

Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Throws first live BP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikolas threw his first live batting practice session of summer camp Tuesday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

The right-hander further corroborated he's over the forearm flexor strain that had sidelined him in the spring, throwing two innings to the majority of the Cardinals lineup and getting it done under the 40-pitch threshold. Mikolas' next action is set to come during an intrasquad game later in the week, a stint that's scheduled to consist of three innings and 50 pitches in duration.

Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: 'Full go' in bullpens Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikolas, who has been deemed fully recovered from a flexor tendon strain in his right forearm, was able to work up to approximately 40 pitches in a Friday bullpen session at Busch Stadium, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports. "It was pretty sore [in March] and I was just getting started on the rehab program," Mikolas said. "Now, full-go bullpens. Looking forward to my first live BP coming up, and ready to go."

Much like teammate Paul Goldschmidt, the veteran right-hander was able to utilize the nearly four months off from official baseball activities and games to overcome an injury that was projected to have him miss the originally scheduled Opening Day. Mikolas' activity level Friday seems to corroborate that his arm is back to full health, and he'll take another step toward his regular-season readiness when he faces teammates in live batting practice over the coming days.

Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Gets clean bill of health
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cardinals manager Mike Shildt suggested Wednesday that Mikolas (forearm) will be fully healthy when the team resumes workouts at summer camp this week, Ben Frederickson of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Mikolas' clean bill of health comes as little surprise, as he had previously had an outside chance of making a full recovery from his strained flexor tendon by late March, when Opening Day was originally scheduled to occur. With the start of the season now having been pushed back approximately four months, Mikolas should be in store for a similar buildup program to the Cardinals' other starting pitchers during camp. Shildt added that he expects to use a five-man rotation when the 60-game slate opens in late July, which will likely result in offseason import Kwang-Hyun Kim settling for a long-relief role.

Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Attending Busch workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikolas (forearm) has been among the players attending small informal workouts at Busch Stadium in recent weeks, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

That the veteran right-hander has been present and working out in some form bodes well for his chances of being available right from the start of any shortened 2020 season. Despite the regimented nature of the workouts -- assigned time slots, daily temperature checks, strict social distancing and no shower availability at the facility -- Mikolas understands the need for the protocols given the current health situation.

Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Should be fine when season resumes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikolas (forearm) completed a bullpen session Friday at the Cardinals' spring training facility and said he anticipates being ready for the start of the regular season, Mark Saxon of The Athletic reports. "Everything's going well. If you look at June 10-ish for spring training and early- to mid-July as the point of no return, from what I understand, for a season, I think I should be ready to go," Mikolas said.

Because Mikolas was recovering from a strained flexor tendon in his right forearm when MLB suspended its season in mid-March, he has been allowed to conduct his rehab program at the Cardinals' facility while his healthy teammates have worked out on their own. Mikolas, who has been throwing off a mound for a few weeks now, estimated that he'll complete about 8-to-10 more bullpen sessions before throwing two or three innings in simulated or exhibition games, assuming teams are cleared to reconvene in early or mid-June. That should put him on pace to handle a normal starter's workload by the time the truncated season begins.

Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Throws pair of bullpens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikolas (forearm) has recently thrown two bullpen sessions of "light" intensity, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

This is the latest positive report on Mikolas' progress from a right forearm strain, as he continues to benefit from the unexpected downtime afforded by the suspension of spring training. President of baseball operations John Mozeliak confirms Mikolas should be ready for a regular season that begins anytime after June 1, a timeline that appears highly likely if there is to be a 2020 campaign.

Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Presumed ready for game action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikolas (forearm) would be pitching in either a rehab assignment or actual regular-season games by this point if the opportunity existed, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The veteran right-hander was already back to throwing from 120 feet by early April, and at this point, Goold reports Mikolas is essentially game-ready and is just "sustaining his health" until he can start facing hitters. Mikolas' forearm strain was going to create an extra vacancy in the starting rotation had the season started March 26 as originally planned, but it's now possible he could test and stretch out his arm sufficiently during any ramp-up period ahead of a rescheduled Opening Day.

Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Throwing up to 120 feet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikolas (forearm) is up to playing catch from 120 feet and is expected to throw a light bullpen session soon, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

The update on the right-hander was provided by president of baseball operations John Mozeliak, and it confirms Mikolas is seemingly one of the few players on the Cardinals' roster benefiting from the current suspension of play. With Opening Day still multiple weeks away at minimum, it seems likely Mikolas would be ready by the time the regular season begins.

Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Expects to make Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikolas (forearm) expects to be ready to go by Opening Day, which now appears to unfold in mid-May at the earliest, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Mikolas is one of a group of currently injured players whose stock benefits from the uncertainty surrounding the start date of the upcoming season. He's been dealing with a sore flexor tendon since mid-February and has received a pair of platelet-rich plasma injections. He was previously on target to return sometime in April, which, if accurate, should still leave him plenty of time to stretch out.

Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Slated to throw Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikolas (forearm) was slated to play catch Wednesday for the first time since his second platelet-rich plasma injection, the Associated Press reports.

The right-hander had Wednesday set as his projected date to resume throwing, and it appears he'll hit the mark precisely. Mikolas remains on track to miss the start of the regular season, but if Wednesday's session and subsequent steps go off without setbacks, he could be ready for a debut sometime in April.

Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Target date for throwing set
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikolas (forearm) is slated to begin playing catch around March 11, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Manager Mike Shildt made the announcement on the recovering right-hander, with the target date marking three weeks from when Mikolas received his second platelet-rich plasma injection. Assuming Mikolas is able to continue progressing through his rehab without setbacks, it appears he has a good chance of making his regular-season debut sometime in April.

Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Could resume throwing soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikolas (forearm) could begin throwing again within the next few days, Dawn Klemish of MLB.com reports.

Mikolas received a platelet-rich plasma injection Feb. 18, and he appears to be coming along well in the aftermath. While the veteran right-hander is still expected to miss the beginning of the regular season, the fact Mikolas could begin throwing by early next week certainly keeps him on track for missing minimal time.

February 21, 2020 02:08 PM
Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Encouraged after PRP injection
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikolas (forearm) is encouraged after receiving a platelet-rich plasma injection earlier in the week and feels he will miss minimal time this season, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

Mikolas got the PRP injection Tuesday and feels it honed in on where most of the inflammation in his forearm is. The right-hander also underwent an MRI and ultrasound that showed his ligament is in great shape, which was further reason for optimism. While Mikolas arm is still tight due to fluid, he's due to return to running Friday and Saturday, followed by gym days Sunday and Monday. The earliest Mikolas can resume throwing is Wednesday, but that date is subject to change.

Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Requires injection for forearm
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mikolas received a platelet-rich plasma injection for his sore flexor tendon Tuesday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. He's expected to rest for around a month before ramping up his throwing program.

Mikolas will likely continue to take part in fielding and cardio work while he waits for the shot to take effect, but the delayed start to his throwing program looks like it will prevent him from being ready for the March 26 season opener at Cincinnati. Even if he gets the green light to resume pitching by mid-March, Mikolas would likely need at least a couple weeks to build up to a starter's workload before the Cardinals would break him into the rotation. Assuming Mikolas is moved to the injured list to begin the campaign, spots in the rotation could open up for both Carlos Martinez and Kwang-Hyun Kim.
