MILWAUKEE -- The St. Louis Cardinals placed Jedd Gyorko on the 10-day disabled list and recalled prospect Harrison Bader from Triple-A before a game against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night.

Gyorko left Monday's game in the seventh inning with a strained right hamstring. Greg Garcia will fill in at third base.

http://www.bleachernation.com/2018/04/03/wow-cardinals-of-tommy-pham-has-some-extremely-candid-words-for-how-the-team-treated-him/


If you look at his minor league stats, they were not exactly calling out too loudly for him to ever be in the majors.

At 25, as a AAA OFer he hit .264 with a .678 OPS in 106 AB, and in 188 that year at AA he hit .301 with a .910 OPS in 163 AB.

At 26, as an AAA OFer he hit .324 with an OPS of .886 in 346 AB, and got a callup to the Cardinals, hitting .268 with an .824 OPS in 153 AB -- in other words, when he did well in the minors, he got called up, got some playing time, and did reasonably okay, but did not set the world afire.

The guy really has nothing to complain about regarding how the Cards used him or called him up.

Let them crow, it will be all the sweeter when the Cubs destroy them later, preferably clinching in St Louis again with Darvish dominating.

Mikolas 6 ERA in 2 games against the Brewers, 1.28 in 2 games against the Reds.

His contact percentage of 82.4% is 12 worst in the majors and that is with people swinging at 39% of pitches outside the zone.  My guess is that as the league catches up to him they are going to make him come into the zone more and his zone contact percentage of 92.5% will catch up to him.  Only Felix, Godley, Blach and Chacin have higher zone contact percentages. 

Of those 4 pitches on Godley is really doing well.  He is also the only one of the group.  Godley's outside zone contact percentage is 37.9%.  The rest of them have an outside zone contact percentage of 59.7%-73.7%.  Mikolas has a 68%.

From Bleacher Nation.... Hereís Mozeliakís entire comment on Fowler. Just wow:

ďItís been a frustrating year for everybody involved. Hereís a guy who wants to go out and play well. I think he would tell you itís hard to do that when youíre not playing on a consistent basis. But Iíve also had a lot of people come up to me and question his effort and his energy level. You know, those are things that I canít defend. What I can defend is trying to create opportunities for him, but not if itís at the expense of someone whoís out there hustling and playing hard. And really I think everyone just needs to take a hard look in the mirror, and decide what they want that next chapter to look like. And in Dexterís case, maybe taking a brief time out, trying to reassess himself, and then give him a chance for a strong second half is probably whatís best for everybody. Iím hopeful to touch base with him in the near future and decide what makes the most sense, but clearly heís not playing at the level we had hoped.Ē

This belongs in Politics, but I heard that stuff about Jason Heyward his first two years from the Cubs too from a few random Cubs fans I'd bump into.  Seems like a struggling black player gets that tag a lot easier than a struggling white one does. 

I'm not sure what's going on with Fowler this year, but there was definitely no reason to question his energy, effort, and hustle during his time with the Cubs, much less his first season in St. Louis.  I have a hard time believing he just all of a sudden decided this was the year he was going to quit playing all out.
