Opts for hip surgery
Should be fine when season resumes
Mikolas (forearm) completed a bullpen session Friday at the Cardinals' spring training facility and said he anticipates being ready for the start of the regular season, Mark Saxon of The Athletic reports. "Everything's going well. If you look at June 10-ish for spring training and early- to mid-July as the point of no return, from what I understand, for a season, I think I should be ready to go," Mikolas said.
Could be 'key member' of staff
Hicks (elbow), who could return from Tommy John surgery shortly after the start of the proposed abbreviated regular season, may play an integral relief role according to president of baseball operations John Mozeliak, Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. "Given the circumstances of the season, the likelihood of his being able to contribute are a lot different than had it been a normal year," Mozeliak said. "There is some optimism that if we do have a season, he'll have some way of being a key member of it."
