Woodford was reassigned to minor-league camp Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Woodford has yet to pitch above the High-A level, so there wasn't an expectation that he'd open the season with the big club. Over 23 games (119 innings) at High-A Palm Beach in 2017, Woodford threw for a 3.10 ERA and 1.40 WHIP.

2016 Fantasy Outlook
The 39th overall pick in last year’s draft impressed in 26.1 innings with the Gulf Coast League Cardinals. Woodford, a 6-foot-4 righty, compiled a 2.39 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, and 21 strikeouts in eight appearances (five starts). He was only asked to face hitters a second time in his last four outings of the season, but in those 18 innings he allowed just one run with 17 strikeouts, so it seems he was up for the challenge of going deeper into games. The scouting report suggested he could touch 94 on his fastball coming out of high school, but that his secondary pitches needed some work. His initial success suggests his slider and/or changeup may have been a bit undersold, and that his command is already at least average. However, a full-season look, perhaps in the second half of 2016, will offer a better indication of Woodford’s long-term upside.
