Player Outlook
Tommy Edman sat out most of July due to a wrist injury but was otherwise a lineup regular for the Cardinals again in 2023. The team as a whole took a major step back, but the veteran utility man largely looked like himself with a .248/.307/.399 slash line in 137 games, which is only slightly worse than his figures from 2022. Edman's run total dropped to 69 last season after two straight years over 90, but his 13 homers, 27 stolen bases and 47 RBI were comparable to the prior campaign, especially since he played in 16 fewer contests. He split his playing time evenly between shortstop, second base and the outfield, as his versatility remains a boon for both the Cardinals and fantasy managers. Edman batted .259 and has averaged 12 homers, 30 stolen bases, 53 RBI and 85 runs across the past three seasons, and a similar campaign likely awaits in 2024 given his consistency during that span.

  • Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Cleared to begin baseball activity

    Edman (wrist) was cleared by a doctor Monday to begin baseball activities, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports. It's certainly good news, although Edman will basically be re-starting the equivalent of a spring training ramp-up from square one, so it will be a while before he returns. That's assuming things go well with the ramp-up, of course, which was not the case previously. Victor Scott has been filling in for Edman in center field but is off to just a 3-for-36 start at the plate.

  • Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Still shut down from most activity

    Edman (wrist) said Thursday that while he got "generally good news" from his MRI on Wednesday, he remains shut down from most baseball activities, John Denton of MLB.com reports. Edman will have another exam on his right wrist Monday, and he could be cleared to begin ramping back up next week if he receives a positive report. The 28-year-old is now six months removed from what was supposed to be a relatively minor surgery, but he has been unable to get over the hump in his recovery.

  • Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Moves to injured list

    The Cardinals placed Edman (wrist) on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports. It's been known for nearly two weeks that Edman would be starting the season on the injured list, and the move is now official just ahead of Opening Day. The 28-year-old has been taking part in baseball activities, but it's unclear how long he's expected to be sidelined. Prospect Victor Scott will begin the campaign as St. Louis' primary center fielder with Lars Nootbaar (ribs) and Dylan Carlson (shoulder) also on the shelf.

  • Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Opening season on IL

    Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol said Thursday that Edman will open the season on the 10-day injured list after being shut down again due to lingering pain in his surgically repaired right wrist, John Denton of MLB.com reports. Edman will still be able to do some defensive drills and throwing, but he'll be shut down from swinging a bat for a least one week while the Cardinals wait for him to knock out all of the discomfort in the wrist. Though Marmol confirmed the 28-year-old will be headed to the IL, a clear timeline for Edman to make his season debut hasn't been made available. Dylan Carlson still seems to be the favorite to open the season as the primary center fielder for St. Louis, but prospect Victor Scott is breathing down his neck.

  • Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Encouraged after multiple opinions

    Edman said Saturday that the nagging pain in his surgically repaired right wrist is "more inflammation than structural" following second and third opinions from doctors, John Denton of MLB.com reports. The switch-hitter has had to be shut down twice this spring due to lingering pain when he bats right-handed and is expected to begin the season on the injured list. However, while it's not yet clear what the steps will be in Edman's rehab, he's confident he will not be sidelined long. The Cardinals are expected to use Dylan Carlson in center field while Edman is on the shelf.

  • Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Doubtful for Opening Day

    Cardinals GM John Mozeliak said Friday it's doubtful Edman (wrist) will be ready to play by Opening Day, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Edman recently resumed playing catch and hitting off a tee but apparently isn't close to game ready as he returns from offseason wrist surgery. A stint on the injured list to begin the season seems likely, and it's now a question of how much time he'll miss.

  • Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Resumes hitting and throwing

    Edman (wrist) resumed playing catch and hitting off a tee Tuesday, John Denton of MLB.com reports. The rehab progress of Edman's right wrist has been slow and inconsistent, so the Cardinals had shut him down for a while after he reported more pain. The plan is for Edman to get back to hitting soft-toss pitching relatively soon, though a clearer timeline for his return to the lineup likely won't come until he faces live pitching again. If Edman isn't ready to go by Opening Day, Dylan Carlson would be in line to begin the season as St. Louis' center fielder.

  • Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Growing concern over availability

    The Cardinals have growing internal concern that Edman (wrist) will not be ready for Opening Day, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports. Working his way back from October right wrist surgery, Edman has been going through drills on the back fields but has yet to be cleared to face live pitching. The switch hitter has taken swings from both sides of the plate, but his swing from the left side is considered ahead of his swing from the right side at this juncture. With about three weeks of exhibition games remaining, Edman is running out of time. If Edman requires a stint on the injured list, Dylan Carlson would be the Cardinals' Opening Day center fielder.

  • Cardinals' Tommy Edman: No timeline for spring debut

    Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol said Monday that Edman (wrist) is further along on his hitting program from the right side of the plate than the left side, but the 28-year-old remains without a timeline to make his Grapefruit League debut, John Denton of MLB.com reports. While Edman hasn't experienced any reported setbacks with his surgically repaired right wrist upon reporting to spring training and has been able to hit off a tee as well as soft-toss pitching, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat posits that Edman is still at least a couple weeks away from facing live pitching. With Opening Day just four weeks away, the Cardinals may be preparing for the possibility of Edman beginning the season on the injured list. If Edman fails to break camp as a member of the active roster, Dylan Carlson would likely step in as the Cardinals' primary center fielder, but Edman's absence may loom more largely in the infield. Youngster Masyn Winn is in line to serve as St. Louis' everyday shortstop this season, but Edman had profiled as the top backup option at the position, as the Cardinals have concerns about the defensive abilities of Brendan Donovan and Jose Fermin.

  • Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Several weeks from full activities

    Edman (wrist) could be several weeks away from being cleared for full baseball activities, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Edman missed one workout with a stomach bug, but it's his surgically repaired right wrist that has the Cardinals slow-playing him thus far during the spring. While Edman is able to go through normal fielding drills, he's currently limited to one-handed swings designed to build strength and range of motion in his wrist. He will eventually progress to soft toss and then batting practice before being cleared for game action. The Cardinals still believe Edman has enough time to be ready for Opening Day, but he seems to be working with a tight window.

  • Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Dealing with stomach bug

    Edman (wrist) will miss the first team workout in Cardinals camp because of a stomach bug, John Denton of MLB.com reports. Edman is also being eased into spring training following offseason wrist surgery, which is the more important thing to keep tabs on with regard to his status. The 28-year-old will be behind schedule from a hitting perspective, and it's not clear when he might be ready for his first Grapefruit League game, but Edman anticipates being ready to go come Opening Day.

  • Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Inks two-year deal with Cardinals

    Edman (wrist) signed a two-year, $16.5 million contract with the Cardinals on Monday to avoid arbitration, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports. The two sides had been slated to go to an arbitration hearing after being unable to come to terms earlier this month, but a hearing will now be unnecessary. The two-year pact will buy out Edman's final two years of arbitration eligibility. Edman -- who is expected to be slowed a bit at the start of spring training as he recovers from wrist surgery -- is penciled in as St. Louis' everyday center fielder for 2024.

  • Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Could be slowed early in camp

    Edman (wrist) said Monday that he could be slightly behind schedule from a hitting perspective at the start of spring training, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports. Edman underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right wrist in October and is still in the midst of a hitting progression. He has yet to be cleared for bat-to-ball contact and it's not clear when that will happen. Edman fully expects to be ready to roll come Opening Day, though, so fantasy managers shouldn't be overly concerned at this point that he's a tad behind.

  • Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Recovering from wrist surgery

    Edman underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right wrist in October, John Denton of MLB.com reports. Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak made the revelation Thursday, adding that he expects Edman to be ready to go at the start of spring training. The super utility player missed three weeks in July with tendon inflammation in the wrist and opted for surgery after the season when the pain and stiffness lingered. Edman is currently projected to be St. Louis' everyday center fielder in 2024.

  • Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Adds another steal

    Edman went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Reds. Edman had multiple hits in six of his last nine games this season, picking up three steals while batting .371 (13-for-35) in that span. The utility man's production fell short of previous years in many areas, but his ability to seamlessly move between the middle infield and center field helped smooth things over in a difficult year for the Cardinals. He ends the campaign with a .248/.307/.399 slash line, 13 home runs, 27 steals in 31 attempts, 47 RBI and 69 runs scored across 137 contests.

  • Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Registers steal in win

    Edman went 2-for-5 with a walk, one stolen base and three runs scored in Saturday's 15-6 win over the Reds. Edman has hit well to close out the campaign, posting five multi-hit efforts over his last eight games. The utility man has maintained a .246/.305/.398 slash line through 136 contests. He's added 13 home runs, 26 steals, 47 RBI, 68 runs scored, 25 doubles and four triples. Edman's bat has been a bit subpar, but his defensive versatility has helped him maintain steady playing time for the Cardinals.

  • Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Notches 13th homer

    Edman went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Brewers. Just a few days after reaching the 25-steal milestone, Edman tied his career high in home runs Tuesday with his 13th blast. The long ball was his first of September. Edman is 9-for-31 (.290) with one RBI and three runs scored overall in his last eight games.

  • Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Reaches 25-steal mark

    Edman went 2-for-5 with a stolen base in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Padres. Edman entered Friday just 4-for-38 with one RBI over his previous nine games. The theft was his 25th of the year in 28 attempts, though it was also his first since Sept. 8. The utility man is up to a .241/.299/.390 slash line with 12 home runs, 46 RBI, 62 runs scored, 23 doubles and four triples through 129 contests. He should close out the year as the Cardinals' main second baseman with Nolan Gorman (hamstring) uncertain to return from the injured list.
