Team intends to make additional transactions on Wednesday

 

ST. LOUIS, MO., August 4, 2020 – The St. Louis Cardinals announced today that the club activated infielder Brad Miller (right ankle bursitis) from the 10-Day Injured List, and placed catcher Yadier Molina, infielders Paul DeJong and Edmundo Sosa, and pitchers Carlos Martínez, Junior Fernández, and Kodi Whitley on the Injured List. Further changes to the major league roster will occur once cleared by Major League Baseball to resume play on Friday, August 7. There will be additional players added to the 60-man player pool as players complete their in-take testing.

Regarding staffing, minor league hitting coordinator Russ Steinhorn will transfer from the Alternate Training Site in Springfield to the Cardinals Major League coaching staff, while assistant minor league hitting coordinator Joey Hawkins will be added to the Alternate Training coaching staff once his in-take testing is completed. In the interim, Cardinals Manager of Player Development and Performance Emily Wiebe will assist the Alternate Training Site in Springfield. 

“I am saddened to have tested positive for COVID-19, even after adhering to safety guidelines that were put in place,” said Molina. “I will do everything within my power to return as soon as possible for Cardinals fans, the city of St. Louis and my teammates. As I recover, I request that you please respect my privacy and family in my absence from the team.”

“I am disappointed to share that I have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus, even though I followed team protocols,” stated DeJong. “I will approach my healing as I do all other things in my life – with education, commitment, and persistence. I look forward to re-joining the team soon and ask that you respect my privacy at this time.”

The tentative plan is for the Cardinals to resume their regular schedule on Friday against the Chicago Cubs at Busch Stadium.
