Top Cardinals News

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Saturday's start postponed

    Wainwright won't start Saturday against Atlanta since the game was postponed due to inclement weather, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Saturday's matchup will be made up as part of a doubleheader Sunday. Wainwright will take the mound in Game 1, while Kwang Hyun Kim will start the nightcap, Zachary Silver of reports.

  • Cardinals' Wade LeBlanc: Off to good start in St. Louis

    LeBlanc fired three scoreless innings during which he allowed a hit and a walk while recording two strikeouts in a loss to Atlanta on Friday.

    The veteran left-hander has been put right to work by manager Mike Shildt, with LeBlanc already having logged an appearance in each of the first two games since his arrival Thursday. LeBlanc likely figures in for plenty of middle/long-relief assignments similar to the one he carried out Friday, which might net him an occasional decision or hold but which will likely result in limited fantasy utility.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Singles in return

    Sosa (hand) went 1-for-3 and was caught stealing on his one attempt in a loss to Atlanta on Friday.

    The utility asset was back in the lineup after a one-game absence and managed one of only three hits for the Cardinals on the night. Sosa has now hit safely in three of the last four games and continues to be pleasant surprise at the plate, as evidenced by his .267 average and .358 on-base percentage across 120 plate appearances.

  • Cardinals' Carlos Martinez: Ambushed by Atlanta

    Martinez (3-8) took the loss Friday, surrendering eight runs on eight hits and four walks over three-plus innings as the Cardinals were dropped 9-1 by Atlanta. He struck out three.

    The right-hander threw only 39 of 68 pitches for strikes before getting the hook with two on and nobody out in the fourth inning, and both runners eventually came around to score. Martinez has been tagged for at least five runs in three of his last four outings, sending his ERA soaring to 6.62, and he's walked 10 batters in 14.2 innings over that stretch.

  • Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Struggling since two-game absence

    Edman is 1-for-8 with a double, a run and two strikeouts over his first pair of contests following a two-game absence due to torso tightness.

    The talented player may still be somewhat limited in his swing, although the two-bagger he laced off Atlanta's Max Fried on Friday, one of only three hits for the Cardinals, was encouraging. It bears mentioning Edman's struggles predate the injury as well, as he was only hitting .214 (12-for-56) with 12 strikeouts in the 12 contests before being sidelined.

  • Cardinals' Justin Williams: Activated and optioned

    Williams (neck) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Friday.

    Williams will wind up missing just shy of two weeks due to neck stiffness, but there's no roster spot available for him now that he's healthy. He didn't exactly do much to earn a roster spot prior to the injury, hitting just .160/.270/.261 in 51 games.

  • Cardinals' Edmundo Sosa: Back in lineup Friday

    Sosa (hand) is starting at second base and batting seventh Friday against Atlanta, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Sosa was diagnosed with a hand contusion after being hit by a pitch during Wednesday's game against the Marlins. He did not play in Thursday's loss to Atlanta but will return to the lineup Friday after missing just the one game.

  • Cardinals' John Gant: Mediocre in loss Thursday

    Gant (4-5) allowed three earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four across 5.1 innings, taking the loss to Atlanta on Thursday.

    Gant shut out Atlanta through two outs in the fifth inning until Guillermo Heredia hit a solo home run. He then failed to get through the sixth frame while giving up another pair of runs. It still wasn't Gant's greatest start, but it was much better than his previous performance against the Cubs when he looked completely lost. The 28-year-old's ERA is up to 3.50 and he has a rough 1.61 WHIP. In addition, he has a poor 1.0 K/BB through 61.2 innings.

  • Cardinals' Brandon Dickson: Lands MiLB deal

    Dickson signed a minor-league contract with the Cardinals on Thursday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Dickson spent time with the Cardinals in 2011 and 2012, but he's played the last eight seasons with the Orix Buffaloes of Nippon Professional Baseball. The 36-year-old will report to Triple-A Memphis going forward.

  • Cardinals' Max Moroff: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Moroff (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday.

    Moroff's move to the 60-day IL is simply procedural since he's slated to miss the rest of the season after he underwent surgery on his dislocated shoulder in early June. The 28-year-old is expected to have a seven-month recovery timetable, so he could be back at full strength by the start of spring training in 2022.

  • Cardinals' Seth Elledge: Sent to Triple-A

    Elledge was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Thursday.

    Elledge had given up two runs in three innings across his last three relief appearances, and he'll now head back to the minors after the Cardinals signed left-hander Wade LeBlanc as part of a corresponding move. The 25-year-old has posted a 5.40 ERA and 1.80 WHIP in 10 innings with the major-league club this year and could rejoin the bullpen as a middle reliever at some point.

  • Cardinals' Wade LeBlanc: Lands with Cardinals

    LeBlanc signed a contract with the Cardinals on Thursday.

    LeBlanc joined the Rangers on a minor-league deal at the beginning of June but was released after he spent just over two weeks with Triple-A Round Rock. The southpaw recorded a 9.45 ERA in 6.2 innings across six appearances (one start) for the Orioles earlier in the season. He could serve as a swingman as needed but will join the bullpen to begin his time with his new club, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports. Right-hander Seth Elledge was optioned to Triple-A Memphis as part of a corresponding move.

  • Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Back in lineup Thursday

    Edman (torso) will be back in the lineup for Thursday's game against Atlanta, Jim Hayes of Bally Sports Midwest reports.

    Edman sat out each of the last two games due to torso tightness, but he'll return to action in Thursday's series opener. The 26-year-old has gone 5-for-22 with three doubles and three runs across his last five games.
