Cardinals' Rangel Ravelo: Still projected for some DH duty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Now that the universal implementation of the designated hitter in 2020 is official, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports Ravelo could be one of several players the Cardinals deploy in that spot.

Ravelo originally projected to serve as the team's primary pinch hitter, a role the departed Jose Martinez held last season. However, with the DH rule now offering manager Mike Shildt an opportunity to get an extra bat into the lineup each day, president of baseball operations John Mozeliak specifically mentioned Ravelo as an option to rotate into the spot on occasion. The long-time minor-leaguer finally got his first majors break last season, slashing .205/.256/.410 across 43 plate appearances.

Cardinals' Rangel Ravelo: Likely strong DH candidate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ravelo would be a natural candidate to frequently slot in at designated hitter if the position is instituted universally during an abbreviated 2020 season, Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Ravelo was already on track to stick as a reserve first baseman and pinch hitter when spring training was suspended, but the likelihood the DH slot becomes one manager Mike Shildt regularly has to fill potentially gives the 28-year-old a chance to play on a near everyday basis. Ravelo finally saw his first big-league regular-season action in 2019 after toiling for 10 seasons in the minors, and he hit .237 (9-for-38) across 14 Grapefruit League games before play was paused.

Cardinals' Rangel Ravelo: Sees plenty of spring at-bats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ravelo hit .237 (9-for-38) with three doubles, two RBI, six walks, one stolen base and five runs across 14 Grapefruit League games before spring training was suspended.

The 27-year-old saw plenty of action in anticipation of filling multiple roles in the coming season. Ravelo is expected to fill in occasionally at first base and the outfield while also serving as a designated pinch hitter of sorts. The long-time minor-leaguer finally broke into the majors in 2019, slashing .205/.256/.410 across 43 plate appearances over 29 games.

Cardinals' Rangel Ravelo: Tagged for utility/pinch-hit role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ravelo, who's slated to fill in at both first base and the corner outfield spots this season, is also a primary candidate for the pinch-hit role Jose Martinez frequently occupied last season, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Ravelo finally made it to the big leagues in 2019 following nine-plus seasons in the minors, although he logged just 43 plate appearances over 29 games. There are hopes the 27-year-old will play a more extensive role this coming season, and while Tommy Edman and Brad Miller also offer plenty of defensive versatility, Ravelo's spot appears secure with rosters expanding to 26.

Cardinals' Rangel Ravelo: Left off roster for NLDS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ravelo is not on the roster for the National League Division Series against the Braves.

The 27-year-old saw limited opportunities throughout the 2019 campaign and only hit .205/.256/.410 with two home runs and seven RBI in 39 at-bats. Randy Arozarena will fill the final bench spot for the Cardinals.

Cardinals' Rangel Ravelo: Hits tape-measure blast
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ravelo slugged a 487-foot solo home run for his only hit over four at-bats in a win over the Rockies on Thursday.

Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Ravelo's homer was the longest hit by a Cardinal in the Statcast era, which began in 2015. The career minor-leaguer now has a pair of round trippers during his first taste of big-league action.

Cardinals' Rangel Ravelo: Slugs pinch-hit homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ravelo entered Thursday's win over the Giants as a pinch hitter in the eighth inning and hit a two-run home run in his only at-bat.

It was the career minor leaguer's first career round tripper, and the 422-foot shot to left center with Tyler O'Neill aboard closed out the Cardinals' 10-run outburst. Ravelo has hit safely in all three of the games he's logged at least one at-bat in since most recently being called up Sept. 1.

Cardinals' Rangel Ravelo: Recalled by St. Louis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ravelo was recalled by the Cardinals on Sunday.

Ravelo has made a number of appearances with the big-league club this season but has spent the majority of his time with Triple-A Memphis. In the minors, he's managed a strong .299/.383/.473 line in 95 games. Though he'll get to close the season in the majors, he isn't likely to see much playing time thanks to Paul Goldschmidt and a crowded Cardinals outfield.

Cardinals' Rangel Ravelo: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ravelo was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Sunday.

Ravelo was called up from Triple-A on July 21 and went 2-for-11 during his two weeks in the majors, primarily serving as a pinch hitter. The 27-year-old has a .313/.389/.489 slash line in 77 games with Memphis this season.

Cardinals' Rangel Ravelo: Recalled to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ravelo was called up from Triple-A Memphis on Sunday.

This will be Ravelo's second stint with the big-league club this season. He has hit .313/.389/.489 across 303 plate appearances with Triple-A and will likely serve only as depth along the Cardinals infield. However, he is in the lineup Sunday against the Reds, batting third and playing first base.

Cardinals' Rangel Ravelo: Sent down to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ravelo was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Thursday.

Ravelo spent the weekend prior to the break with the Cardinals, striking out in both of his at-bats. He's gone 1-for-8 with the big-league club this season but owns a .323/.402/.512 slash line for Memphis.

Cardinals' Rangel Ravelo: Back in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ravelo was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Friday.

Ravelo reached the majors for the first time earlier this season, getting into just four games. The 27-year-old owns a strong .323/.402/.512 line in 71 contests for Triple-A Memphis. He'll likely fill a bench role during his time with the Cardinals. Lane Thomas was optioned in a corresponding move.

Cardinals' Rangel Ravelo: Optioned to Memphis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ravelo was optioned back to Triple-A Memphis on Friday, Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Yairo Munoz's reinstatement from the restricted list prompted the return of the long-tenured minor leaguer to the Redbirds. Ravelo went 1-for-6 over four games with the Cardinals during what was his first major-league stint in a professional career that dates back to 2010.

Cardinals' Rangel Ravelo: Notches first MLB hit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ravelo went 1-for-4 in an extra-innings win over the Marlins on Wednesday, with the single serving as his first big-league hit.

Everything associated with Ravelo's current stint with the Cardinals could be labeled as a long time coming, considering it's his first taste of big-league action after a nine-year minor-league career. Ravelo's first major-league hit came in his first start, as he'd appeared in a pinch-hitting capacity in his first two games Monday and Tuesday. The 27-year-old's starting opportunities should be few and far between while he remains up, considering he's essentially limited to playing first base behind Paul Goldschmidt.

Cardinals' Rangel Ravelo: Promotion official
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals selected Ravelo's contract from Triple-A Memphis on Monday.

After nine years slogging it out in the minors, Ravelo will be rewarded with his first trip to the big leagues. The 27-year-old slashed an impressive .333/.414/.543 with nine home runs and 42 RBI in 63 games at Memphis, but his lack of defensive flexibility may largely limit him to a pinch-hitting role while he's up with the big club. Ravelo has split time between first base and left field this season.

Cardinals' Rangel Ravelo: Set to join Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals are expected to select Ravelo's contract from Triple-A Memphis ahead of Monday's game against the Marlins, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.

Ravelo had an ugly start to the season with Memphis after a spring training injury but is now slashing .333/.414/.543 with nine homers through 63 games for the Redbirds. The 27-year-old is unlikely to see any extended playing time considering the Cardinals have all their starters healthy, but he's nonetheless set to receive his first taste of the majors.

Cardinals' Rangel Ravelo: Another solid season at Memphis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ravelo is slashing .290/.371/.477 with 17 extra-base hits (11 doubles, six home runs) and 26 RBI across 44 games with Triple-A Memphis this season.

The 27-year-old recently fell just one game short of tying Adam Kennedy's franchise-best 20-game hitting streak, and he's putting together a third straight impressive season with the Redbirds overall. However, Ravelo has now been stuck at the Triple-A level for parts of five consecutive seasons with both the Athletics and Cardinals, and St. Louis' recent sizable, multi-year financial commitment to Paul Goldschmidt essentially serves to continue blocking the career minor-leaguer's path to the majors.

Cardinals' Rangel Ravelo: Avoids significant injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The MRI Ravelo required Sunday revealed no structural damage to his ribcage, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

The Cardinals are labeling Ravelo as day-to-day while he manages soreness around his ribcage, which he first experienced while diving after a ball Friday. Attending camp as a non-roster invitee, Ravelo is expected to be reassigned to the minors within the next few days. He'll open the upcoming campaign at Triple-A Memphis.

Cardinals' Rangel Ravelo: Goes for MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ravelo underwent an MRI on his ribs Sunday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Ravelo was scratched from Saturday's game for a previously unknown reason, but he appears to be experiencing pain in his ribs. The results of the MRI are not yet known, but the 26-year-old may be out of action for at least a couple more days.

Cardinals' Rangel Ravelo: Scratched from lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals scratched Ravelo from their lineup for Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

It's unclear if a physical issue resulted in Ravelo's removal from the lineup or if manager Mike Shildt merely had second thoughts about his starting nine for the afternoon. Either way, Ravelo isn't in line to crack the Cardinals' Opening Day roster and is slated to begin the campaign at Triple-A Memphis, where he slashed .308/.392/.487 with 13 home runs across 398 plate appearances in 2018.
