Miles Mikolas (elbow) healthy ahead of Cardinals camp

St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Miles Mikolas (elbow) is healthy ahead of the planned restart, per Ben Frederickson of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

What It Means:

Mikolas was initially slated to open the season on the injured list with a flexor tendon strain. Cardinals manager Mike Shildt indicated they will stick with a five-man rotation this year, creating a summer camp competition between Kwang-Hyun Kim and Carlos Martinez. Mikolas' ERA rose from a career-best 2.83 in 2018 to 4.16 last year.

numberFire's models project Mikolas for a 4.10 ERA and 1.22 WHIP with 50 strikeouts and 13 walks over 65 2/3 innings this season.
