  • Cardinals' Packy Naughton: Starting rehab assignment

    Naughton (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with the Cardinals' Florida Complex League affiliate on Tuesday.

    Naughton underwent flexor tendon surgery last June and is finally ready to report to a minor-league affiliate. The left-hander is no longer on the Cardinals' 40-man roster but could work his way back into the bullpen mix if he regains his pre-surgery form.

  • Cardinals' Packy Naughton: Easing in during spring training

    Naughton (elbow) is behind schedule this spring as he completes his rehab from left flexor tendon surgery, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    The southpaw had the operation last June. Naughton was removed from the Cardinals' 40-man roster over the offseason but is in camp as a non-roster invitee. He'll likely begin the season at Triple-A Memphis but could eventually be a factor as a lefty option out of the St. Louis bullpen.

  • Cardinals' Packy Naughton: Outrighted to Triple-A

    The Cardinals outrighted Naughton (elbow) to Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday.

    Naughton made only four major-league appearances in 2023 before requiring June surgery to repair the flexor tendon in his left elbow. The 27-year-old southpaw is now off the 40-man roster in St. Louis.

  • Cardinals' Packy Naughton: Undergoes surgery

    Naughton underwent surgery to repair the flexor tendon in his left elbow Monday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    The good news is that Naughton didn't require UCL repair surgery, but the 27-year-old southpaw is facing an extended absence nonetheless. Naughton most likely won't return until 2024, putting an end to his season after throwing just five scoreless innings in April.

  • Cardinals' Packy Naughton: Slated for surgery

    Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol confirmed Monday that Naughton (forearm) will undergo surgery June 26, Lynn Worthy of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Marmol didn't specify whether Naughton would require Tommy John surgery or another kind of arm procedure, but the southpaw looks set to miss extended time in any case. Naughton has been on the shelf since April 8 with a strained left forearm and experienced a setback just three pitches into his first rehab appearance at Triple-A Memphis earlier this month.

  • Cardinals' Packy Naughton: Could need surgery

    Naughton visited a doctor in Texas earlier this week to receive a second opinion on his left forearm injury, John Denton of MLB.com reports.

    Naughton had a setback during his rehab appearance with Triple-A Memphis on Sunday, and at this stage, all treatment options appear to be on the table for the southpaw. That includes a procedure of some sort, though Denton notes that Naughton "might be able to avoid Tommy John surgery." Whatever the case, Naughton doesn't look as though he'll be returning from the Cardinals' 60-day injured list anytime soon.

  • Cardinals' Packy Naughton: Suffers setback

    Naughton will be evaluated after he "felt a tug" in his left forearm during his first rehab appearance with Triple-A Memphis on Sunday, Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol told Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat on Monday.

    Naughton lasted just three pitches before suffering the setback. He's missed nearly all of the season with the arm issue and clearly isn't going to be rejoining the St. Louis bullpen anytime soon.

  • Cardinals' Packy Naughton: Exits rehab outing early

    Naughton (forearm) was removed from his rehab appearance Sunday with Triple-A Memphis after throwing just three pitches, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    The Cardinals haven't revealed whether Naughton suffered a setback with his strained left forearm in the first outing of his rehab assignment or if he's dealing with a new physical issue, but whatever the case, he didn't end up pitching a full inning for Memphis like the organization had planned. Naughton has been shelved since April 8 with the forearm injury and is eligible to return from the 60-day injured list whenever St. Louis deems him ready to go.

  • Cardinals' Packy Naughton: Begins rehab assignment

    Naughton (forearm) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Memphis on Sunday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Naughton has been out since early April with a strained left forearm. The length of his absence may mean that he needs more than just one or two rehab outings before he's ready to return from the injured list.

  • Cardinals' Packy Naughton: Moved to 60-day IL

    St. Louis transferred Naughton (forearm) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Wednesday.

    Naughton resumed throwing earlier this month, but he still has a lot of hurdles to clear in his recovery from a left forearm strain. He originally landed on the IL on April 8 and now won't be eligible to rejoin the St. Louis bullpen until June 8.

  • Cardinals' Packy Naughton: Plays catch Thursday

    Naughton (forearm) played catch Thursday from around 90 feet, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Naughton's throwing program is underway about four weeks after he landed on the injured list because of a left forearm strain. He could return to the Cardinals' bullpen in late May if all goes well from this point forward.

  • Cardinals' Packy Naughton: MRI reveals no structural damage

    Cardinals manager Oli Marmol said Sunday that Naughton underwent an MRI that revealed no structural damage to his strained left forearm, John Denton of MLB.com reports.

    Naughton was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday, but he appears to have avoided a potentially long-term injury. Marmol mentioned that the left-hander's recovery process will be mapped out over the next couple of days. It's possible Naughton is able to return to a relief role with St. Louis before the end of April.

  • Cardinals' Packy Naughton: Lands on injured list

    Naughton was placed on the 15-day injured list Saturday with a left forearm strain, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Naughton exited Friday's loss to the Brewers due to the injury and will be sidelined for at least the next two weeks. Genesis Cabrera was recalled from Triple-A Memphis in a corresponding move.

  • Cardinals' Packy Naughton: Evaluated for forearm tightness

    Naughton is being evaluated by doctors after leaving Friday's outing with left forearm tightness, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Naughton looked to be in pain before leaving Friday's relief appearance against the Brewers. He should be considered day-to-day, but a trip to the injured list for a fresh arm cannot be ruled out.

  • Cardinals' Packy Naughton: Leaves outing with trainer

    Naughton left Friday's relief appearance against the Brewers with an apparent injury, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat notes.

    Naughton was visited by Cardinals manager Oli Marmol and a trainer after he was seen flexing his left arm, and he exited the contest. Chris Stratton has replaced the southpaw after he went 0.2 innings without allowing a run.

  • Cardinals' Packy Naughton: Makes Opening Day bullpen

    Naughton has been informed he will be a part of the Opening Day roster for the Cardinals, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    Naughton was in a battle with several arms for one of the final spots in the bullpen, and he's come out on top. The left-hander had mixed results in the Grapefruit League with a 4.82 ERA and 7:3 K:BB over 9.1 innings, but his ability to go multiple innings as a former starter likely was the determining factor. Naughton is unlikely to pitch in a role that provides much fantasy relevance in 2023.

  • Cardinals' Packy Naughton: Mixed results in spring

    Naughton has allowed three earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out four over 4.2 innings through five Grapefruit League appearances.

    Naughton was on and off the Cardinals' major-league roster for much of 2022, posting a 4.78 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 31:7 K:BB across 32 innings. He started three of his six appearances, but his path to staying in the majors this season is in the bullpen since the Cardinals have a surplus of potential starters. Naughton remains unlikely to challenge for a high-leverage role, so he won't be a factor in most fantasy formats.

  • Cardinals' Packy Naughton: Makes wild-card roster

    Naughton will be on the Cardinals' wild-card roster, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    Naughton was sent to the minors Sept. 21, but he'll rejoin the Cardinals ahead of the NL Wild Card Series against the Phillies, which begins Friday. The southpaw held left-handed hitters to a .163 batting average in the majors this year, which factored into the decision to include Naughton on the roster over Genesis Cabrera.

  • Cardinals' Packy Naughton: Returns to minors

    Naughton was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Wednesday.

    The 26-year-old was called up by St. Louis on Sept. 10 and allowed one run over four frames during his brief time on the active roster. Naughton was optioned to Memphis but will remain with the big-league club as a member of the taxi squad.

  • Cardinals' Packy Naughton: Called up by Cardinals

    Naughton was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Saturday.

    Naughton spent just over two weeks in the minors and allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits and no walks while striking out four in four innings over three relief appearances following his demotion. However, he'll rejoin the Cardinals' bullpen after James Naile was sent down Saturday.
