Cardinals RHP Miles Mikolas (elbow) won’t pitch in Monday’s simulated game as scheduled.
Cardinals manager Mike Shildt said Mikolas “won’t pitch in a simulated game Monday.” “For now it’s caution. We’ll see what it is later.” He missed the entire 2020 campaign recovering from surgery on the flexor tendon in his right forearm. Mikolas will have his simulated game pushed back and it is unclear when he will face live hitters during Spring Training.
Cardinals RHP Miles Mikolas (elbow) will be on his normal schedule to start camp.
Mikolas missed the entire 2020 campaign after undergoing surgery on his right flexor tendon in July. He’s a full go and will be on a normal schedule to start camp. Mikolas owned a 4.16 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 144:32 K:BB across 184 innings. The 32-year-old RHP is currently 119th among all pitchers in the latest expert consensus draft rankings.
Cardinals RHP Miles Mikolas (elbow) has resumed throwing off a mound.
"My arm feels good — I actually had a nice bullpen (session) today, my second bullpen," Mikolas said on Wednesday. Mikolas missed the 2020 season due to a flexor strain that required surgery. However, the expectation is that he'll be ready for spring training. The 32-year-old produced a 4.16 ERA in 184 innings (32 starts) back in 2019.
Miles Mikolas, who underwent surgery to repair a flexor tendon in his elbow, is expected to enter camp on a regular schedule and have a normal spring training, per Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak.
Mikolas missed the entire 2020 season after undergoing surgery but the Cardinals are optimistic that the 32-year old right-hander will be ready to go come spring. Mikolas registered a 4.16 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in 2019 with Saint Louis and would be worth a late-round flyer if he doesn't have any setbacks with his elbow in between now and the start of next season.
Miles Mikolas was transferred to the 60-day IL to clear a spot on the Cardinals 40-man roster. Mikolas was placed on the injured list back late July with a flexor tendon issue in his elbow.
Mikolas had surgery to repair the flexor tendon in his elbow and was out the season so this move was simply to clear space for St. Louis.
