Cardinals' Randal Grichuk may not be ready by early May


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Cardinals outfielder Randal Grichuk is on the 15-day disabled list with a back strain. He's eligible to come off on May 2, but he'll likely need longer than that. 

Manager Matt Matheny said that progress in Grichuk's rehab has been "slow", per MLB.com


Cardinals' Randal Grichuk (back) moving around well


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Cardinals outfielder Randal Grichuk is making progress in his recovery from a lower back strain, with manager Mike Matheny saying Wednesday that he's moving around well, the Associated Press reports.

Despite the positive news, Matheny said that the team has yet to discuss a potential rehab assignment for the recovering outfielder. On the disabled list since Friday, Grichuk is 2 for 10 with a home run and two RBI in six games.


Cards to reevaluate OF Randal Grichuck's workout routine after injury


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/19/2015) Following Randal Grichuck's lower back injury that landed him on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, the Cardinals will be reevaluating the outfielder's workout routine in order to minimize his chance of re-injury, per MLB.com. 

Grichuk hurt his back on Friday while performing squat exercises. 

"This one snuck up on him a couple times now," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. "He's going to have to do things, probably, radically different."


Cardinals place Randal Grichuck on DL with lower back strain


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) The Cardinals have placed outfielder Randal Grichuck on the 15-day DL with a lower back strain, reports MLB.com. The team will also call up Dean Anna to fill in the roster spot. Grichuck picked up the injury during a work out Friday doing squats and has been unavailable since.

"We're going to have to change the workout from here on out," Grichuk acknowledged. "It wasn't a lot of weight. That's what was the surprising part of it. I was doing two warmup sets, and on the second set, about the fourth rep, I went down, got all the way down and came up about 2-3 inches and I kind of felt it lock out, tighten up, whatever you want to call it. I knew something had happened then."

Grichuck is hitting .200 with one home run and two RBI in 10 at-bats this season.


Randal Grichuk homers in Cardinals' loss


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) Randal Grichuk hit a two-run home run in the second inning as the Cardinals led early but faltered, losing to the Reds, 5-4. 

Grichuk hit a 1-1 pitch to left center, giving the Cards a short-lived lead. 

'I gave up the home run to the No 8 batter there, and I felt like I wasn't doing my job,'' Reds starter Jason Marquis said.


Cardinals GM going to be patient with Grichuk in reserve role


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2015) The Cardinals opted to keep outfield prospect Randal Grichuk on the Opening Day roster instead of send him to the minors, despite the fact he doesn't have a starting role. 

"I'm going to be patient with that," general manager John Mozeliak said, per MLB.com. "There's going to be a time when we look at that and make sure that we're not dwarfing his development because of lack of playing time. But I think the first thing we have to do is just let the season get going and see ultimately how he's being used."

A part of the reason the Cardinals kept Grichuk on the roster is he can play all three outfield positions. Grichuk was used in a similar bench role last season, but he admits he is better prepared to handle the job this time around.

"I learned that it's very tough," Grichuk said. "That's the first time I've ever been in that role, so I wasn't used to it and didn't know what to expect. I realized that you have to get your work in and prepare like you're starting every day. You have to be mentally focused on the game, watching the game, watching at-bats so when you're called in the fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth, you're ready."


Cardinals award Randal Grichuk, Pete Kozma final two bench spots


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) The Cardinals informed outfielder Randal Grichuk and Pete Kozma that they have earned the final two spots on St. Louis' bench, per MLB.com.

Grichuk is hitting .256/.373/.558 with four homers and 10 RBI over 43 at-bats this spring. Kozma .429/.432/.429 with five RBI over 42 at-bats in Grapefruit League play.

"We'll find out [Grichuk's potential]," manager Mike Matheny said, per the St. Louis Post Dispatch. "I think that's how we'll go about it. I see him just as a very valuable weapon offensively, defensively, and on the bases. Just another right-handed bat to give us those options. We're going to try to give him as much work as we possibly can. Just watching what he's done this spring couldn't imagine leaving Florida without him on our club."


Cardinals' Randal Grichuk blasts fourth homer of spring


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(3/22/2015) Trying to earn a spot on the Cardinals' Opening Day roster, Randal Grichuk continues to make his case through power hitting. After blasting a long home run in Sunday's loss to the Orioles, Grichuk now leads the team with four homers. 

The outfielder hit .245 with three homers in 47 games with the Cardinals last season, but blasted 25 dingers with Triple-A Memphis. His spring performance certainly has opened some eyes among the Cardinals' staff, according to MLB.com. 

"We're not denying that he looks better than he had in the past," manager Mike Matheny said. "That's always a good place for him to be."


Cardinals' Grichuk back in lineup after getting MRI on knee


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2015) Cardinals outfielder Randal Grichuk was back in the spring lineup Friday, a day after undergoing an MRI on his right knee, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. He started in left field and hit third.

Grichuk had some swelling in his right knee, but he said the MRI revealed the swelling wasn't in the joint and it would have calmed down had he stopped playing or running.

Grichuk is batting .273 (6 for 22) with one double, three home runs and six RBI in 10 spring games.


Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk looks to improve against righties


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2015) Cardinals outfielder Randal Grichuk is working to improve his hitting against right-handed pitchers.

During the offseason, Grichuk would actually set up pitching machines to throw him right-handed sliders and curveballs.

"I wanted to train my eye to see it," he explained. "You just have to get used to seeing the curveball and slider running away from you a little bit."

Grichuk started last season almost exclusively against lefties due to his struggles against right-handers.

"I think it kind of got in my head last year," Grichuk said. "I didn't put together good at-bats [against righties] early and did against lefties. This year I'm going to be comfortable off both sides and really focus on having good quality at-bats and making sure it's in the zone and not chasing."


Cardinals' Grichuk (back) set to get into spring game Saturday

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Grichuk is battling for a reserve outfield position behind Matt Holliday, Jon Jay, and Jason Heyward this spring. He hit .245/.278/.400 in 47 games last season.

Cardinals could look to add right fielder in offseason


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said Sunday at the general managers' meetings in Arizona the team could look to right-field options outside the organization in the wake of the tragedy involving Oscar Taveras, according to MLB.com.

Mozeliak talked about Randal Grichuk and Stephen Piscotty being internal options as well.

"I think it certainly leaves that position in question," Mozeliak said. "Clearly internally, we have Grichuk and potentially Piscotty to fill that spot. I would also say that it does now force us to explore other options, whether it's the free-agent market or the trade market. Really, this past week and [this] week will be groundwork to see if something like that is possible.

"I'm not saying it's a must, but I also think we need to be prudent and make sure that we understand what that landscape looks like. When you look at sort of what Grichuk did and you look at Piscotty's inexperience at the big leagues, if our goal is to try and find ways to get an uptick in offense, we do have to explore it."
