    Any word on his progress? Has he fully recovered and ready for Spring Training at 100%? Assuming there is a Spring Training, of course.

    I think he was ready by the time the season started last year. He just opted out because of the virus and his being high risk because of diabetes.

    He had a set back in spring and is far from a sure thing.

    There was no ongoing concern about Hicks. He could have pitched in 2020 if not for COVID concern.

    Last month, Mo told us that Hicks will enter camp on a regular schedule to have a normal spring training.

    That is great news. My concern would be Hicks might push too hard if competing with Rosie. Plus, a Rosenthal signing would minimize the value of Gallegos.
    I would like to see Reyes in the rotation. I know we love Adam, Gomber, and CMart, but I think Reyes falls in behind KK and ahead of Miles. Adam at five with Gomber and CMart to the pen.
    Hicks and CMart are a different dynamic than Jordan and Trevor.

    I’d be surprised if the Cardinals bring in more relievers. A starter if not Waino, maybe.

    The pitching depth is amazing with or without Waino. I add in Adam whenever I consider the rotation.

    I should have said, “with the current roster”. On the other hand, if they trade away some pitching depth to get offense, that could change their potential posture on free agent pitchers (my speculation).

    Well Al was basically saying he’s out 4 weeks, not good.

    Whitley has been surprisingly effective for the most part.

    I know recovery from TJ can be bumpy and uncertain, but how big of a worry is this?

    Mo’s quote was hopefully Hicks will be back “some time this summer”. That doesn’t sound soon to me.

    He said four weeks, fingers crossed.

    Yikes. That’s not good news at all. Perhaps we will be shopping for relief help at the deadline.

    Perhaps Oviedo bumps Gant to the pen, in an effort to backfill Hicks absence.

    We are less loaded with pitching than we thought.

    Man, this is too bad. I have never liked the way the Cardinals have managed Hicks, rushing him to the majors and then putting him in the high leverage role.

    He seems to be going the same route as Reyes, who fortunately is handling things really well these days. Hopefully Jordan gets to that point as well.

    Maybe both guys are groomed as starters next year.

    I think Reyes will get a shot to start in 2022. The ship has sailed for Hicks, much like it did for Rosenthal. He’s a high leverage reliever and a pretty good one if he can stay healthy.

    He may not return until the all star break.
