  • Cardinals' Willson Contreras: Back in lineup at DH

    Contreras (hand) will serve as the Cardinals' designated hitter and No. 3 batter Tuesday versus the Phillies.

    Contreras still isn't able to squeeze his catcher's mitt due to lingering soreness in his left hand and admits that "it does bother me to swing a little bit," per John Denton of MLB.com. However, he's feeling well enough to DH in this one and is hoping to be ready to catch by this weekend. Ivan Herrera is getting another start behind the plate Tuesday.

  • Cardinals' Willson Contreras: Expected to play Tuesday

    Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol said Monday that he's confident Contreras (hand) will be ready to return to the lineup Tuesday, John Denton of MLB.com reports.

    Marmol also revealed that Contreras wasn't actually scratched from Monday's lineup, but rather he was never meant to be included in the lineup that was ultimately released. However, while he will sit out a fourth straight game with a sore left hand, it sounds like he should be ready to go Tuesday. Ivan Herrera is getting another start at catcher Monday.

    Contreras (hand) has been scratched from the Cardinals' lineup Monday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

  • Cardinals' Willson Contreras: Sitting again Sunday

    Contreras (hand) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    Contreras was initially in the lineup Saturday before being scratched as he continues to battle hand soreness after being hit by a pitch Wednesday, and he won't return to the starting nine for Sunday's series finale versus Miami. Ivan Herrera will receive another look behind the plate for St. Louis, but the Cardinals anticipate that Contreras will return to action at some point during the club's upcoming three-game series with the Phillies that begins Monday, per John Denton of MLB.com.

  • Cardinals' Willson Contreras: Scratched from lineup

    Contreras (hand) was scratched from the Cardinals' lineup ahead of Saturday's game against Miami, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Contreras was originally slated to serve as St. Louis' designated hitter Saturday, but he is evidently still bothered by his left hand after getting hit by a pitch Wednesday against the Padres. The decision to remove him from the lineup seems to be a precautionary measure, and the 31-year-old backstop should still be considered day-to-day. Alec Burleson will fill in as the replacement DH on Saturday.

  • Cardinals' Willson Contreras: Returns to lineup

    Contreras (hand) is in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Marlins, Lynn Worthy of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Contreras sat out Thursday's series opener versus Miami after getting hit in the hand by a pitch Wednesday. He managed to avoid a fracture and will now return as St. Louis' DH while Ivan Herrera starts behind the dish.

  • Cardinals' Willson Contreras: Not dealing with fracture

    Contreras did not suffer a fracture in his hand and is hoping to be available to play Saturday versus the Marlins, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Contreras was held out of the lineup Thursday after being hit in the hand with a pitch the day prior. It's unclear whether he'll be able to start behind the plate Saturday against Miami, but X-rays came back clean and it doesn't appear that he'll be in for a long-term absence.

  • Cardinals' Willson Contreras: Dealing with swollen hand

    Contreras is dealing with lingering swelling in his left hand but has yet to undergo imaging ahead of Thursday's game against the Marlins, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Contreras stayed in the game in Wednesday after being hit by a pitch in the sixth inning, drawing a walk in his final plate appearance in the eighth. His hand remains swollen, however, and there would seem to be a good chance he'll be held out of the lineup for Thursday's home opener. If Contreras unable to go, Ivan Herrera would do the catching for the Cardinals.

  • Cardinals' Willson Contreras: Won't play Thursday

    Contreras (hand) won't be in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Marlins, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak said the team isn't yet at the point of needing to add another catcher to the 26-man active roster, but he didn't rule it out in the future. Contreras was hit in the left hand by a pitch in Wednesday's loss to San Diego, and the Cardinals are still waiting for swelling in the hand to go down before he can undergo X-rays. If Contreras has to miss time, Ivan Herrera would be in line to serve as St. Louis' primary catcher, and Pedro Pages would likely be recalled from Triple-A Memphis.

  • Cardinals' Willson Contreras: Goes yard again

    Contreras went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer Tuesday against the Padres.

    For a second straight night, Contreras got to jog around the bases, this time after tagging Yu Darvish for a two-run home run to plate Brendan Donovan and give the Cardinals a 3-2 sixth-inning lead. Although Contreras has yet to log a multi-hit game, he's generated three runs scored and driven in four en route to a .176/.333/.529 slash line.

  • Cardinals' Willson Contreras: Pops homer Monday

    Contreras went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and a hit-by-pitch in Monday's 6-2 win over the Padres.

    Contreras' first-inning blast gave the Cardinals a 3-0 lead, which was enough support for Kyle Gibson. It's been a bit of a slow start to the year for Contreras -- he's 2-for-14 with two walks, five strikeouts and two runs scored over four contests. Facing the Dodgers' formidable pitching staff in the first series likely played a role in that, so he should be expected to hit just fine over a larger sample.
