RP - STL - IL60
Cardinals RHP Jordan Hicks (elbow) has begun some light throwing.
Hicks began feeling some discomfort on his surgically repaired elbow back in May, but the young righty is beginning to make slight progress. It remains up in the air as to whether or not he'll pitch again this season.
Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak says that a "best case" scenario would have Jordan Hicks (elbow) returning in August.
Hicks received an injection in his throwing elbow back in mid-May. Alex Reyes will continue to serve as the team's closer moving forward.
Jordan Hicks got an injection in his elbow last week and has now begun his rehab program as of Monday. He'll have a month to recover before the Cardinals ramp him back up to major league ready condition.
After not playing at all in 2020 due to COVID-19, Hicks struggled to start the 2021 season, giving up six runs and 10 walks over just 10 innings. Hicks will hope to return to his 2019 form once he returns from injury.
The Cardinals transferred RHP Jordan Hicks (elbow) to the 60-day injured list.
Hicks was originally expected to miss at least four weeks, but it's going to be even longer than that. He went on the 10-day IL back on May 4th. Alex Reyes looks poised to continue operating as the Cardinals' closer for the immediate future.
Cardinals reliever Jordan Hicks will miss a minimum of four weeks according to the Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak.
Unfortunate news for Hicks after missing the entire 2020 season. In ten innings, Hick had a 5.40 ERA, 22.7% strikeout rate, and 22.7% walk rate. He's borderline cuttable in 15-team leagues if you don't have an injured list spot and injuries keep piling up.
