  • Cardinals' Masyn Winn: Notches steal Monday

    Winn went 1-for-2 with a walk, a stolen base and a run scored in Monday's 5-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Winn has gone 3-for-13 with two walks, a double, a steal and two runs scored over his last four contests. The shortstop is in a starting role and leads the Cardinals with a .323 batting average. He's added an .824 OPS, four steals, six RBI, eight runs scored, three doubles and two triples, but he has yet to hit a home run this season. Winn should see a majority of the playing time at shortstop, with Brandon Crawford around to spell him occasionally.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Breaks slump with walk-off blast

    Gorman hit a two-run, walk-off home run in his lone at-bat in Monday's 5-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Gorman was given Monday off, but ultimately entered the game as a defensive replacement. His lone at-bat ended the game, as he took Kyle Nelson deep in the ninth inning to complete the Cardinals' comeback win. Gorman has four homers, 10 RBI, six runs scored and three doubles over 84 plate appearances this season, but he's slashing just .179/.238/.372 and striking out at a 38.1 percent clip, so he's not out of the woods yet. Gorman should continue to play against most right-handers, but he'll rarely be in the lineup versus southpaws.

  • Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Lifts second homer

    Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Monday's 5-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Goldschmidt's slow start has been the cause of much consternation for St. Louis, and it's led to him batting fifth in the last two games. He's gone 3-for-7 since the drop in the order, so it looks like the change is at least having a short-term effect. The first baseman is batting a meager .195 with a .566 OPS, two homers, nine RBI and eight runs scored over 94 plate appearances. Goldschmidt's track record will give him a lot of leeway to work out of his struggles, but it's possible that the 36-year-old may be starting to feel his age as well.

  • Cardinals' Ryan Helsley: Snags second win

    Helsley (2-2) earned the win Monday versus the Diamondbacks, allowing one hit and striking out one without walking a batter in a scoreless inning.

    Helsley has allowed just one unearned run over his last six appearances, though that led to a loss. He was able to back into the win Monday, keeping the game tied in the top of the ninth inning before Nolan Gorman hit a walk-off home run in the bottom of the frame. Through 12 appearances, Helsley has a 2.25 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 13:1 K:BB while converting seven of his eight save chances.

  • Cardinals' Keynan Middleton: Extends throwing distance

    Middleton (forearm) played catch from 110 feet Saturday and Sunday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    The Cardinals haven't followed up about how Middleton responded to his latest long-toss session, but assuming he didn't experience any complications with his strained right forearm, he could soon be cleared to start throwing off a mound again. Middleton hasn't pitched since suffering the injury in a March 7 Grapefruit League game, but once healthy, he's expected to be a key part of the late-inning bridge to closer Ryan Helsley.

  • Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Could begin rehab assignment soon

    Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol said Carlson (shoulder) took batting practice from both sides of the plate Monday and could start a minor-league rehab assignment within days, Lynn Worthy of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    The Cardinals are expected to re-evaluate Carlson on Tuesday to see how he responded to his latest live BP session, but if his left shoulder isn't causing any issues, the 25-year-old could be cleared for game action. Carlson appears further along in his recovery from the shoulder injury than Tommy Edman does in his recovery from wrist surgery, so Carlson could end up settling in as St. Louis' primary center fielder if he beats Edman back from the 10-day injured list.

  • Cardinals' Matt Carpenter: Gets injection for oblique

    Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol said Monday that Carpenter received a platelet-rich plasma injection for his strained right oblique, Lynn Worthy of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    The Cardinals will have Carpenter rest for the next three days to allow the injection to take effect. If all goes well, Carpenter will resume hitting on the field later this week, and then face a high-velocity pitching machine before he starts getting at-bats in a game setting. Heading into the season, Carpenter didn't look as though he would be in store for much of a role before being placed on the 10-day injured list April 4, but he could have an opportunity to see reps at designated hitter if Nolan Gorman (.610 OPS, 38.1 percent strikeout rate in 84 plate appearances) and Alec Burleson (.549 OPS in 52 plate appearances) fail to show improvement in the weeks to come.

  • Cardinals' Drew Rom: Timeline for return uncertain

    Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol said Friday that Rom (biceps) recently took part in plyometric exercises but didn't respond well to the activity, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    The update doesn't shed much light on where exactly Rom stands in his recovery from left biceps tendinitis, an injury he sustained during spring training. The fact that Rom has yet to resume throwing just under a month after landing on the 15-day injured list suggests a rehab assignment isn't imminent for the 24-year-old southpaw. Rom could be a candidate to move to the 60-day IL if he's unable to begin a throwing progression by the start of May.

  • Cardinals' Lance Lynn: Fans seven in no-decision

    Lynn allowed three runs on seven hits and three walks over five innings in a no-decision Monday. He struck out seven in the win over Arizona.

    Lynn coughed up a pair of runs in the second inning and one more in the fifth. Despite producing only one quality start through five outings, he's sporting a strong 2.81 ERA through 25.2 frames. Lynn produced 12 whiffs Monday, including eight with his fastball. The veteran righty will carry a 26:10 K:BB into his next start, which is lined up to be on the road against the Mets this weekend.

  • Cardinals' Jordan Walker: Sitting out Monday

    Walker is out of the lineup for Monday's game versus the Diamondbacks.

    Walker has now started just four of the Cardinals' last eight contests while he's produced a .164/.238/.273 slash line to begin the season. Lars Nootbaar will slide over to right field Monday while Alec Burleson receives a start in left as Walker retreats to the bench.

  • Cardinals' Nolan Gorman: Not in Monday's lineup

    Gorman is absent from the lineup for Monday's game against the Diamondbacks.

    Gorman was demoted to the eighth spot in the Cardinals lineup for Sunday's 2-0 loss to the Brewers and now finds himself out of the starting nine altogether. Over his last four contests, Gorman has gone 0-for-17 with 10 strikeouts. Gorman could receive more frequent days off if his slump persists much longer.

  • Cardinals' Mike Siani: Logs first steal

    Siani went 1-for-2 with a walk and a stolen base in Sunday's 2-0 loss to the Brewers.

    Siani is gaining regular playing time in center field, and that should continue with Victor Scott being optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Sunday. Siani has three hits and two walks over his last two contests, but he hadn't shown much with the bat before that. The outfielder is batting .200 with a triple, no RBI, seven runs scored and a 3:6 BB:K over 27 plate appearances this season. Siani is likely a placeholder in center field until one of Dylan Carlson (shoulder) or Tommy Edman (wrist) is cleared to play.

  • Cardinals' Sonny Gray: Fans 12 in loss

    Gray (2-1) struck out 12 and took the loss Sunday against Milwaukee after he allowed two runs on five hits and one walk over 6.1 innings.

    The veteran right-hander limited the Brewers to just two singles and a walk through six innings, but they rallied for two runs on three singles and a stolen base in the seventh. Gray appeared to be in midseason form and generated 19 swinging strikes, but he never had a chance at the victory since the Cardinals offense was blanked. He's been electric through three starts for St. Louis with a 1.04 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 23:1 K:BB across 17.1 innings. Run support has been an issue early on, as the Cardinals have scored just six total runs in his three outings.

  • Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Batting fifth Sunday

    Goldschmidt is starting at first base and batting fifth Sunday against the Brewers.

    The 36-year-old has a .173/.279/.213 slash line through 20 games this season and will drop below the cleanup spot for the first time since 2013, per Rob Rains of StLSportsPage.com. Goldschmidt's track record provides plenty of reason to believe it's only matter of before he turns things around, but the move down the order is notable given his usual stability in the lineup.

  • Cardinals' Matt Carpenter: Rehab assignment not imminent

    Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol said Sunday that Carpenter (oblique) is still at least a few days away from starting his rehab assignment, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Carpenter took swings during batting practice both Friday and Saturday. Marmol noted that those sessions went well for Carpenter, but the veteran first baseman could need upwards of a week before beginning his rehab assignment. Carpenter has been on the Cardinals' 10-day IL since April 2 after straining his right oblique.
