Jedd Gyorko is a late scratch Saturday in St. Louis
The St. Louis Cardinals have scratched third baseman Jedd Gyorko on Saturday, but the reason for his absence is unknown.
Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch got the scoop, but he mentioned the club didn't immediately release a reason for the late scratch. Kolten Wong and Randal Grichuk are moving up to sixth and seventh in the lineup respectfully, while Greg Garcia heads over to the hot corner. He's hitting eighth against right-hander Lucas Sims.
The Cardinals have a 5.29 implied total in our Heat Map, which ranks third-best in our models for Saturday.
