Wednesday late-night tidbits
Wanted to make sure I checked in with you all before getting a few days off. I won’t be accompanying the team to DC, instead hooking back up with them at home on Monday.
* Brendan Ryan’s hamstring injury was right in the middle of the muscle, rather than up high as it initially appeared when he grabbed it. The initial estimate appears to be 5-7 days, but because of the short bench, the injury to Khalil Greene and Ryan Ludwick’s illness, they’re almost certainly going to make a move. And that move would most likely be to place Ryan on the DL and call up an infielder, with Tyler Greene making the most sense.
* Ludwick is day to day, it’s not really a big deal, but TLR said he may be held out of Thursday’s game.
* Al Hrabosky asked me to pass the following along. The Al Hrabosky House for the Charli Anna Foundation will be holding a Cardinals Alumni vs. Blues Alumni charity softball game on May 9 at TR Hughes Ballpark in O’Fallon, Mo. Among the players announced as participating are Hrabosky, Jack Clark, Whitey Herzog, Mike Matheny and Todd Worrell on the Cardinals side, and Kelly Chase, Scott Mellanby, Terrry Yake and Jim Campbell on the Blues side. Tickets are $10 ($15 day of event) and can be purchased at the River City Rascals website.
Today’s playlist comes from Athens, Ga., after I made a trip out there to visit an old friend. Excellent day, and of course excellent music.
