O'Neill (wrist) was activated off the 10-day injured list Friday.
O'Neill landed on the shelf with a left wrist strain at the start of August and will rejoin the Cardinals after being sidelined for nearly a full month. The 24-year-old has a .279/.316/.434 slash line in 46 games and figures to mostly work as the fourth outfielder for the stretch run.
O'Neill (wrist) went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs overall while playing eight innings in right field during Double-A Springfield's loss to Frisco on Tuesday.
O'Neill continued his successful sojourn through the minors with Tuesday's multi-hit effort. The slugger has hit safely in all five rehab games, and given the power he displayed versus Frisco, appears to be on the verge of activation.
O'Neill (wrist) went 1-for-5 with a double while playing 10 innings in right field during Double-A Springfield's extra-inning loss to Frisco on Monday.
O'Neill has now played back-to-back full games on defense, with the first coming at Triple-A Memphis on Sunday. The 24-year-old has hit safely in all four of his rehab games thus far and appears to have his wrist near full strength given his recent level of participation.
O'Neill (wrist) is 2-for-6 with three walks and a run over his last two rehab games with Triple-A Memphis.
O'Neill worked up to playing a full game in left field Saturday, an important step in his quest for activation. The slugging outfielder is slated to remain with the Redbirds until his recovering wrist is back to normal, but early returns appear to indicate he's quickly drawing closer to that benchmark.
O'Neill (wrist) went 1-for-3 while playing six innings in left field during Triple-A Memphis' win over Round Rock on Wednesday.
O'Neill suited up for the first of what is expected to be several rehab games with the Redbirds. The recovering outfielder is projected to work up to playing a full game in the field before activation, but given that a wrist injury particularly affects a player's swing, he'll also need to log sufficient at-bats to feel comfortable before a return to the big-league club comes to pass.
O'Neill (wrist) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Memphis on Wednesday, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.
O'Neill was set to embark on a rehab assignment this week after ramping up his pregame activity level since Monday, and that development will come to pass in relatively prompt fashion. O'Neill's stay down on the farm could extend through the end of August, which would leave him positioned to serve as one of several expected additions to the major-league club when rosters expand at the beginning of September.
O'Neill (wrist) increased his pregame activity level Monday and is on track to begin a rehab assignment later in the week, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.
O'Neill's recovery has been a bit more extended than first projected. However, he now appears on the verge of heading out to Triple-A Memphis for a rehab assignment, which could begin as early as Tuesday. O'Neill was able to participate in a full batting practice prior to the Cardinals' series opener versus the Brewers on Monday.
O'Neill (wrist) has a chance to be activated from the injured list at some point during this coming weekend, the Associated Press reports. "I don't want to guarantee it," manager Mike Shildt said. "It's a combination of pain tolerance and grip, getting the pain tolerance and inflammation down."
O'Neill recently received an injection in his wrist, which was expected to take full effect by the earlier part of this week. The slugging outfielder conceivably has a chance to play in at least one minor-league rehab game and still be activated during this coming weekend, but as Shildt stated, it will come down to how well O'Neill continues to recover.
O'Neill recently received an injection in his left wrist and is expected to head out on a brief rehab assignment early in the week, the Associated Press reports.
O'Neill is eligible to return as early as Sunday, but he clearly won't be back in action at the big-league level until the end of the week at the earliest. Manager Mike Shildt explained Saturday that the injection should take full effect by Monday or Tuesday, at which point O'Neill would head to a to-be-determined minor-league affiliate for at least a couple of rehab games.
O'Neill is in St. Louis getting treatment for his left wrist strain and hopes to get some rehab games in before a return from the injured list, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
Manager Mike Shildt has been receiving positive feedback on O'Neill while the Cardinals are on their road trip. O'Neill was placed on the injured list retroactive to Aug. 1, so he'd be ready to return as soon as next Sunday against the Pirates. Shildt would like to see O'Neill get some rehab at-bats in prior to then, but he also emphasizes the team isn't going to prioritize that over his recovery process.
O'Neill landed on the 10-day injured list with a left wrist strain Saturday.
O'Neill sat Thursday against the Cubs with what was originally described as a minor hand injury, but the original diagnosis and severity were apparently both incorrect. The move clears a spot for Marcell Ozuna's return from a pair of broken fingers. Ozuna's presence will seemingly cut into O'Neill's playing time once he's healthy again, though the latter's .279/.316/.434 season slash line should still be decent enough to earn him some at-bats.
O'Neill was scratched from Thursday's lineup against the Cubs with a minor hand injury, Jim Hayes of FOX Sports Midwest reports.
The injury isn't thought to be anything overly serious, but the Cardinals will take advantage of Friday's off day to give O'Neill a pair of days to rest and recover. Yairo Munoz is starting in left field and hitting sixth in this one.
O'Neill is not in the lineup Thursday against the Cubs.
O'Neill will head to the bench after starting the past five games and going 5-for-16 (.313) with a 3:2 BB:K. Yairo Munoz is starting in left field and hitting sixth in his place Thursday.
O'Neill is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Pirates.
After going 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles and two steals in Wednesday's 14-8 win, Yairo Munoz will be rewarded with a fifth consecutive start. O'Neill will head to the bench for a second straight game to clear a spot for Munoz, who could unseat O'Neill for an everyday role in the outfield if he continues to thrive at the dish.
O'Neill is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Pirates.
O'Neill will cede left-field duties to Yairo Munoz, ending a streak of 11 consecutive starts for the 24-year-old. After slugging four home runs in the first five of those starts, O'Neill went 4-for-26 with no extra-base hits and eight strikeouts in the subsequent six games. Despite the slump, O'Neill still looks like he'll act as the Cardinals' primary left fielder until Marcell Ozuna (finger) returns from the 10-day injured list.
O'Neill went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a solo home run in a win over the Pirates on Wednesday.
When the promising slugger was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on June 29, the hope was he was ready to take the next step in his big-league development. O'Neill promptly went 1-for-8 over his first two games back, with six of those outs disappointingly coming on strikeouts. While that seemed to portend a continuation of the contact issues that have plagued him thus far in his professional career, O'Neill has done a dramatic about-face since that first pair of contests, going .400 with seven extra-base hits (three doubles, four home runs), 11 RBI, two walks and eight runs. His 28.6 percent strikeout rate during those 42 plate appearances is still elevated, but it's actually a fairly significant improvement over O'Neill's first big-league stint of 2019 (March 28 to May 2), when he whiffed at a 46.2 percent clip.
O'Neill went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run, two runs and four RBI to help the Cardinals to a 7-0 victory over the Pirates on Monday.
Th 24-year-old carried the offensive load on a day the Cardinals got a complete-game shutout from Miles Mikolas, driving in four of his team's seven runs and cranking his fourth home run of the season with a two-run shot in the fifth inning off Joe Musgrove. O'Neill is now slashing .295/.329/.513 over 78 at-bats and should continue to see regular at-bats in the short term with Marcell Ozuna (finger) on the injured list.
O'Neill went 2-for-4 with a double, a home run and four RBI in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Diamondbacks.
The 24-year-old tied his career high in RBI thanks to a two-run double in the first inning and a two-run blast in the third. O'Neill is now slashing .271/.311/.414 with two homers and nine RBI over 30 games, and if he catches fire, he could see regular playing time until Marcell Ozuna (finger) gets healthy.
O'Neill is not in the lineup for Friday's game against Arizona, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
O'Neill had started seven games in a row before sitting for the final contest of the first half. He'll remain on the bench for the first game of the second half, with Jose Martinez starting in left field.
O'Neill is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Giants, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
O'Neill had started each of the past seven games in left field, going 7-for-27 with a double, three walks and 11 strikeouts during that span. Making consistent contact has been a problem for O'Neill across his various stints in the big leagues, but he'll at least provide the Cardinals with some power upside on the occasions he starts. Though he'll sit out Sunday, he could continue to see regular action coming out of the All-Star break if Marcell Ozuna (finger) remains on the 10-day injured list.
