SP - STL - IL60
Cardinals starting pitcher Miles Mikolas plans to throw live batting practice on Tuesday at Busch Stadium. Mikolas could eventually go on a rehab assignment.
Mikolas only made one appearance in 2021 on May 22. It's been a long road of recovery and injuries for Mikolas. The Cardinals desperately need some starting pitching depth. Monitor Mikolas in deeper leagues if healthy.
The Cardinals transferred pitcher Miles Mikolas (forearm) to the 60-day injured list Saturday.
Mikolas will be re-evaluated in 4-6 weeks after feeling forearm tightness in his previous start. He was transferred to the 60-day injured list on Saturday and will be out closet till August. Jose Rondon was called up in a corresponding move. Mikolas is only worth stashing in leagues with IL spots.
Cardinals starting pitcher Miles Mikolas expects to be re-evaluated in 4-6 weeks after a second opinion from Dr. Andrews. Mikolas has a "small calcification in his flexor tendon." However, it sounds like Mikolas doesn't have a UCL injury and expects to pitch this season.
After only four innings pitched in 2021, it's somewhat good news that Mikolas hopes to pitch again this season. However, he's not worth hanging onto in leagues with no IL spots. Mikolas is more of a name to monitor if we receive positive news closer to his return date.
Cardinals manager Mike Shildt says the team's medical staff is still working through the opinions after RHP Miles Mikolas (forearm) met with Dr. James Andrews.
They don't expect to arrive at a wildly different conclusion, but the plan is to finalize a treatment plan by Friday. This isn't great news and it sounds as if we won't see the right-hander pitch for the Cardinals for a while.
The Cardinals placed RHP Miles Mikolas on the 10-day IL due to forearm tightness.
Mikolas just returned from the injured list but his start was cut short due to the forearm injury. There is currently no timetable for him as of now.
