Cardinals' Miles Mikolas (forearm) shut down 3-4 weeks
St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Miles Mikolas (forearm) has received a platelet-rich plasma injection.
Mikolas will be shut down for three-to-four weeks while tending to some soreness in his flexor tendon. The 31-year-old right-hander is highly unlikely to be ready for the start of the season. That could open up a spot for Kwang-Hyun Kim in the Cardinals' rotation. Daniel Ponce de Leon, John Gant, Ryan Helsley, and Alex Reyes are also in the mix for a starting spot.
Mikolas went 9-14 with a 4.16 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in 32 starts for the Cardinals last season. He recorded 144 strikeouts and 32 walks over 184 innings.
