Angels' Mike Mayers: Frontrunner for bullpen spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayers has a strong chance of making the Opening Day roster in a relief role, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The Angels claimed Mayers off waivers in November despite his career 7.03 ERA over 80.2 innings. Per Torres, the right-hander has added a cutter to his arsenal and is focusing on being more aggressive in throwing strikes. The results have been mixed thus far in spring training as Mayers has allowed three earned runs in 5.2 innings but has posted an 11:3 K:BB.

Angels' Mike Mayers: Claimed by Los Angeles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayers was claimed off waivers by the Angels on Friday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Mayers was called up by the Cardinals in September, and he failed to find much success with the big-league club. He posted a 6.63 ERA and 1.68 WHIP with a 16:11 K:BB over 19 frames.

Cardinals' Mike Mayers: Recalled by Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayers was recalled by the Cardinals on Sunday.

Mayers was designated for assignment by the Cardinals earlier in August but was added to the 40-man roster and will have a chance to close the season in St. Louis. The 27-year-old has managed just a 7.24 ERA and 1.90 WHIP across 13.2 big-league innings this year, meaning he isn't likely to see high-leverage work.

Cardinals' Mike Mayers: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayers was sent outright to Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday after clearing waivers.

Mayers was designated for assignment by the Cardinals on Sunday, but after failing to draw interest while on waivers, he'll join the Redbirds. He's posted a 4.50 ERA with nine strikeouts across 10 innings this season at Triple-A.

Cardinals' Mike Mayers: DFA'd by St. Louis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayers was designated for assignment by the Cardinals on Sunday.

Mayers was activated off the 60-day injured list July 23 but struggled in four appearances, allowing six runs over 5.1 innings with a 2:5 K:BB. The 27-year-old could remain in the organization if he goes unclaimed on waivers.

July 23, 2019 02:08 PM
Cardinals' Mike Mayers: Back from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayers (lat) was activated from the 60-day injured list Tuesday.

Mayers has been on the shelf since mid-April due to a right lat strain, but after completing his rehab stint at Triple-A Memphis, he's ready to return to the big-league bullpen. He's appeared in eight games this season for St. Louis, posting a 5.40 ERA with eight punchouts over 8.1 innings of work. Chasen Shreve was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

July 20, 2019 02:24 AM
Cardinals' Mike Mayers: Decision getting closer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayers (lat) is slated to work multi-inning, back-to-back outings at Triple-A Memphis next week in anticipation of activation from the injured list, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Mayers has been sidelined with his lat strain since April 16, and the 30-day window on his rehab assignment is coming to an end next Friday. At that point, the Cardinals would either have to activate Mayers or send him to the minors, but the latter move would subject him to waivers. With St. Louis currently sporting a full 40-man roster, the team would have to move another player to the 60-day injured list or remove a player from the 40-man roster via a trade or a designation for assignment in order to make room for Mayers.

Cardinals' Mike Mayers: Activation could be imminent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayers (lat), who has a 2.45 ERA over 7.1 innings during his rehab assignment, could be activated in the coming days, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports. "There's always a constant evaluation," manager Mike Shildt said. "It's about how he feels, how he recovers, and we'll get him up here. I texted with him today, he's feeling good, and he's excited about his pitches and where he is and how he's recovering, so everything is moving forward positively."

The veteran right-hander would be a welcome addition to the bullpen for the stretch run, and his chance to begin contributing again after his extended layoff could come soon. Mayers has a maximum of 11 days on his rehab assignment, so the latest he could be activated would be July 26.

July 6, 2019 01:24 PM
Cardinals' Mike Mayers: Rehab assignment continues smoothly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayers (lat) fired a scoreless two-thirds of an inning Friday during which he allowed no hits and two walks in Triple-A Memphis' loss to Iowa. He now owns a 2.45 ERA through 3.2 innings across four rehab appearances.

The right-hander is out of minor-league options, so the Cardinals will keep him busy during his rehab assignment in order to prepare him for an eventual return to the big-league bullpen. Mayers was enjoying an impressive season prior to suffering his lat injury in mid-April, and he'll look to regain his form during his remaining time with the Redbirds.

July 1, 2019 10:48 PM
Cardinals' Mike Mayers: Works another rehab inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayers (lat) gave up a solo home run in one inning in Triple-A Memphis' loss to New Orleans on Saturday.

Mayers fired 22 pitches during his inning, a notable departure from the scant six he'd thrown in his first rehab outing last Wednesday. The homer he allowed to Isan Diaz was his one blemish, but the fact he got more work in was a plus. Mayers likely still has multiple rehab appearances remaining before he's considered for activation.

Cardinals' Mike Mayers: Solid in first rehab appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayers (lat) fired a scoreless seventh inning in Triple-A Memphis' loss to Nashville on Wednesday.

The good news is that Mayers got through his one frame without a hitch. However, he may have been just a tad too efficient, considering he needed just six pitches to notch three outs. Overall, it was an encouraging first appearance for Mayers after he last saw game action April 15, and he'll work on building his pitch count back up in subsequent rehab outings.

June 25, 2019 07:32 PM
Cardinals' Mike Mayers: Rehab assignment scheduled
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayers (lat) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Memphis on Wednesday, Rob Rains of StLSportsPage.com reports.

Mayers has been out with a lat strain since mid-April. Given the length of his absence, he'll likely need a fairly long rehab assignment.

June 21, 2019 03:20 AM
Cardinals' Mike Mayers: Throws bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayers (lat) threw a bullpen session Thursday and will throw either live batting practice or a simulated game Sunday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Mayers has been out since late April and will therefore presumably need a relatively extensive rehab assignment before activation. However, the right-hander will need to get through his live BP session or sim game Sunday before he can head out to a minor-league affiliate.

June 18, 2019 01:20 AM
Cardinals' Mike Mayers: Shifts to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals transferred Mayers (lat) to the 60-day injured list.

The transaction has no bearing on Mayers' timeline to return from a right lat strain, as he's already missed more than two months with the injury. Mayers has resumed mound work, throwing a pain-free bullpen session Monday. He could soon be ready to face hitters, which would put him on track to begin a minor-league rehab assignment before the end of the month.

June 7, 2019 02:00 AM
Cardinals' Mike Mayers: Ahead of schedule in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayers (lat) will throw a bullpen session either Friday or Saturday and could start a rehab assignment by the end of June, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Manager Mike Shildt labeled the rehabbing right-hander as "ahead of schedule" Thursday, certainly an encouraging sign considering Mayers has already missed close to two months of action. The reliever noted that he'd gotten his range of motion back recently after sticking to a set throwing routine over the last three weeks. "It's been a slow process, but I think I'm getting closer to the end," Mayers said. "The big thing they've stressed to me is one day at a time. A setback is way bigger than trying to cut a corner here and there. I know my schedule like a day or two ahead, but other than that, I don't know."

May 23, 2019 02:08 AM
Cardinals' Mike Mayers: Begins throwing program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayers (lat) has started playing catch, Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Mayers' road to picking up a baseball again was a long one, considering he's been on the injured list since April 16. Now that he's reached that benchmark, the right-handed reliever will remain on an every-other-day throwing schedule for the time being, with the goal of starting bullpen sessions within the next 2-to-3 weeks.

May 18, 2019 02:20 AM
Cardinals' Mike Mayers: Almost ready to resume throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayers (lat) is set to begin a throwing program early next week, Dave Sessions of MLB.com reports.

The right-handed reliever hit the injured list April 16 after exiting an appearance against the Brewers the night prior with discomfort. Mayers was originally projected to miss significant time and has already been sidelined just over a month, but the fact he'll begin throwing in a matter of days is an indication his recovery may be starting to ramp up.

April 19, 2019 05:32 PM
Cardinals' Mike Mayers: Avoids surgery but out for months
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayers will be sidelined for a few months with a lat injury, though he won't require surgery, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Mayers had a 5.40 ERA in 8.1 innings prior to suffering the lat strain. It's not clear exactly when the Cardinals expect him back, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him moved to the 60-day injured list at some point.

April 16, 2019 04:36 PM
Cardinals' Mike Mayers: Placed on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayers has been moved to the 10-day injured list due to a right lat strain.

Mayers suffered the injury during Monday night's matchup with Milwaukee, and as expected, he'll require a stint on the shelf. In corresponding moves, Yairo Munoz, Giovanny Gallegos and Ryan Helsley have all been recalled, while Drew Robinson has been optioned to Triple-A Memphis and Tyler O'Neill (elbow) has also been placed on the 10-day IL.

April 16, 2019 02:28 AM
Cardinals' Mike Mayers: Likely headed for injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Updating an earlier report, Mayers, who was removed from Monday's loss to the Brewers due to shoulder discomfort, will return to St. Louis for further examination but is expected to land on the injured list, Andrew Wagner of MLB.com reports.

The discouraging report came from manager Mike Shildt, although Tuesday's examination should provide the final verdict. The Cardinals' skipper mentioned Mayers felt cramping under his armpit, and the exact nature of the injury should be pinpointed after the team's medical staff has a first-hand look.
