Yepez is starting Monday against the Pirates, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.
Yepez was slated to be out of the lineup for a third consecutive game Monday, but he'll start at the hot corner and bat sixth after Nolan Arenado (undisclosed) was scratched. Yepez went 2-for-3 with two doubles during Sunday's matchup against Pittsburgh.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Juan Yepez: Losing work to Dickerson, Pujols
Yepez is out of the lineup for Monday's game in Pittsburgh, John Denton of MLB.com reports.
Now on the bench for the third game in a row, Yepez appears to be behind both Corey Dickerson and Albert Pujols in the pecking order in left field and at designated hitter, respectively. Since his call-up from Triple-A Memphis on Sept. 19, Yepez has gone 9-for-31 with a home run and three doubles in 10 games.... See More ... See Less

Cardinals' Juan Yepez: Moving into regular role
Yepez will start at third base and bat cleanup in Wednesday's game against the Brewers, John Denton of MLB.com reports.
Though he'll be filling in for a resting Nolan Arenado on Wednesday, Yepez looks to have established himself as a near-everyday player in left field or at designated hitter as the regular season winds down. Playing time could be tougher to come by whenever Tyler O'Neill (hamstring) is activated from the injured list, but Yepez's recent form gives him a good chance at sticking around as a lineup regular over Corey Dickerson. Since his Sept. 19 call-up, Yepez has gone 7-for-18 with a pair of extra-base hits and a walk in six games. Meanwhile, Dickerson enters Wednesday's game in the midst of an 0-for-21 run over his past eight contests.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Juan Yepez: Crushes 12th homer
Yepez went 2-for-5 with a solo home run, a double and an additional run during Friday's 11-0 win against the Dodgers.
Yepez doubled in the third inning, scored after reaching on an error in the fifth and took Los Angeles reliever Caleb Ferguson deep in the seventh. The 24-year-old rookie has made three straight starts since being recalled from Triple-A earlier this week and he's slashing .255/.297/.468 with 12 home runs, 26 runs and 28 RBI in 66 games....

Cardinals' Juan Yepez: Back in big leagues
Yepez was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Monday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

Cardinals' Juan Yepez: Sent back down
Yepez was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Saturday.

Cardinals' Juan Yepez: Back in majors
Yepez was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Friday.
The 24-year-old was reinstated from the injured list and sent to Triple-A last week, but he'll rejoin the big-league club with Nolan Arenado on the paternity list. Yepez has a .254/.298/.459 slash line with 11 home runs and 27 RBI in 62 games this year.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Juan Yepez: Activated, sent to Triple-A
Yepez (forearm) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Friday.
It was mistakenly reported that Yepez was activated from the IL and optioned to Triple-A on Thursday, but he instead appeared in one final rehab game with Memphis. The 24-year-old will remain with the Redbirds now that he's fully healthy, and it likely won't be too long before he's recalled to the big-league club. Yepez has appeared in 62 games during his first year in the majors and has a .254/.298/.459 slash line with 11 home runs and 27 RBI.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Juan Yepez: Not activated, still rehabbing
Yepez (forearm) remains on the 10-day injured list and will continue his rehab assignment at Triple-A Memphis on Thursday, John Denton of MLB.com reports.
Earlier Wednesday, Denton reported that Yepez had been activated from the IL and optioned to Memphis, but the Cardinals haven't yet made any transaction related to the rookie. Instead, Yepez, who has been on the shelf since mid-July with a Grade 2 forearm strain, will get more work in Memphis after his rehab program had been slowed over the past few days by an illness. According to Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat, Yepez is scheduled to play nine innings in the outfield for Memphis on Thursday and Friday, so any potential roster move likely wouldn't come until Saturday at the soonest....

Cardinals' Juan Yepez: Activated, sent back to Triple-A
The Cardinals reinstated Yepez (forearm) from the 15-day injured list Wednesday and optioned him to Triple-A Memphis, John Denton of MLB.com reports.
Yepez was expected to come off the IL on Tuesday, but the Cardinals pushed his activation back a day after he contended with an illness over the weekend. Though the rookie is now seemingly over both the ailment and the right forearm strain that first sent him to the IL on July 15, the Cardinals don't have a spot in the everyday lineup available for him and will instead have him report to Triple-A so he can play regularly. Lars Nootbaar's emergence as the team's everyday right fielder along with Nolan Gorman and Albert Pujols forming a productive platoon at designated hitter have closed off Yepez's primary paths to at-bats....

Cardinals' Juan Yepez: Illness delays activation
Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol said that Yepez (forearm) won't be activated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday while the 24-year-old looks to overcome an illness, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.
The ailment first cropped up Sunday, when Yepez was scheduled to make what was expected to be his fifth and final rehab appearance at Triple-A Memphis. He was scratched from Memphis' lineup Sunday but already seems to be showing improvement, as he worked out in St. Louis on Monday and Tuesday. Marmol suggested that Yepez could still benefit from a full game in the outfield before being activated from the IL, so it's possible that Yepez heads back to Memphis for one final contest. He should make his return from the IL no later than this weekend.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Juan Yepez: Could return Tuesday
Yepez (forearm) could be reinstated from the injured list as early as Tuesday, John Denton of MLB.com reports.
Yepez began a rehab assignment at Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday and has gone 3-for-11 with a run and a strikeout over three games. He'll play at least six innings in right field Saturday and is expected to play between six and nine innings in right field Sunday.... See More ... See Less
