Even though there are currently no games or even workouts in St. Louis, the organization’s alternate site camp in Springfield is carrying on as normal, featuring player movement on Tuesday.
The Cardinals have added catching prospect Pedro Pages to their satellite camp, according to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
In part of the related moves, on Sunday the team moved Miles Mikolas from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL, thus clearing a spot on the 40-man roster and 60-man player pool. Pages used the latter.
Pages is the Cardinals’ 2019 sixth-round draft pick out of Florida Atlantic University and turns 22 next month. He slashed .291/.393/.430 over 50 games at Low-A (short-season) State College last summer and is currently The Cardinal Nation’s 47th-ranked prospect. Pages was a non-roster invitee to St. Louis’ 2020 spring training camp, solid recognition for a first-year player.
With Jose Godoy having been added to the Cardinals major league taxi-squad last week, Pages joins top catching prospect Ivan Herrera (ranked no. 6) and Julio Rodirguez (23rd-ranked) as the three catchers at the Springfield satellite camp as of now.
It appears the Cardinals will wait as long as possible to announce the roster change that could potentially affect the 40-man in hope some of the first positive COVID-19 tests could be allowed back by the time they play in Chicago.
St. Louis’ next game is tentatively scheduled at the White Sox on Friday at 7:10 p.m. CT.
