The St. Louis Cardinals may soon see some much-needed reinforcements.

Throughout this season, the team has been missing key players due to injuries. Among them is outfielder Dylan Carlson, who was anticipated to take on a significant role, particularly with Tommy Edman out. Unfortunately, Carlson also suffered an injury, keeping him out of action thus far. However, there’s hope on the horizon as MLB.com’s John Denton suggests that Carlson might return to action soon and could potentially begin playing in minor league games as early as next week.

“Cardinals manager Oli Marmol indicated that Dylan Carlson, who has been dealing with a left shoulder sprain, participated in batting practice using a pitching machine at Busch Stadium today, with plans to do the same on Saturday,” Denton reported. “Marmol expressed hope that Carlson will be ready to join some Minor League games by next week.”

Once Carlson returns to action, it’s expected to provide a much-needed lift to the Cardinals’ offense. St. Louis hasn’t performed up to expectations offensively this season, despite anticipation that their offense would be a key strength. With Carlson back in the lineup, the team can benefit from his solid outfield defense and offensive contributions. Given the depth of talent on the roster, the Cardinals should remain competitive for a postseason berth, and Carlson’s return will undoubtedly bolster their chances.
