  • Cardinals' Drew Rom: Undergoes shoulder surgery

    Rom underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder last week, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    It sounds as though the operation wound up being less invasive than initially anticipated, with a return before the end of the season for Rom not totally ruled out. The left-hander had been plagued by shoulder issues since mid-March before finally opting for surgery.

  • Cardinals' Drew Rom: Slated for shoulder surgery

    Rom is expected to undergo left shoulder surgery, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    The exact nature of the operation isn't known yet, but surgery was recommended after Rom met with Dr. Keith Meister in Dallas on Tuesday. The surgery presumably would end Rom's 2024 season before it begins, but more information on a timeline should be known after the procedure.

  • Cardinals' Drew Rom: Moved to 60-day IL

    The Cardinals transferred Rom (biceps) to the 60-day injured list Tuesday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Rom has had trouble getting over the hump with his left biceps injury and is scheduled to be examined by Dr. Keith Meister in Dallas on Tuesday. He now cannot be activated until late May.

  • Cardinals' Drew Rom: Getting opinion from specialist

    Rom (biceps) will be examined by Dr. Keith Meister in Dallas on Tuesday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Rom hasn't done any throwing since late March after being diagnosed with left biceps tendinitis and has not responded well to plyometric exercises. The Cardinals are hoping to get a clearer picture on Rom's status following Tuesday's visit.

  • Cardinals' Drew Rom: Timeline for return uncertain

    Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol said Friday that Rom (biceps) recently took part in plyometric exercises but didn't respond well to the activity, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    The update doesn't shed much light on where exactly Rom stands in his recovery from left biceps tendinitis, an injury he sustained during spring training. The fact that Rom has yet to resume throwing just under a month after landing on the 15-day injured list suggests a rehab assignment isn't imminent for the 24-year-old southpaw. Rom could be a candidate to move to the 60-day IL if he's unable to begin a throwing progression by the start of May.

  • Cardinals' Drew Rom: Lands on injured list

    The Cardinals placed Rom (biceps) on the 15-day injured list Tuesday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    The left-hander recently took a step back from throwing due to a biceps injury and will be sidelined for at least the first couple weeks of the season. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, so Rom could be unavailable beyond the 15-day minimum.

  • Cardinals' Drew Rom: Nursing biceps issue

    Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol said Thursday that Rom has taken a step back from throwing recently due to a left biceps issue, Lynn Worthy of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    He hasn't been fully shut down, but the injury helps explain why Rom hasn't made a Grapefruit League appearance in nearly a week. Once healthy, the left-hander is slated to open the season in Triple-A Memphis' rotation.

  • Cardinals' Drew Rom: Longshot for rotation

    Rom allowed a walk and struck out one over two scoreless and hitless innings in his first Grapefruit League appearance.

    Rom was projected to pitch Sunday versus the Marlins, but that game was rained out. The 24-year-old lefty has long odds to make the Cardinals' rotation, even if the team begins the year with six starters. Rom should be expected to open the year at Triple-A Memphis, and he'll likely stay stretched out should the Cardinals need reinforcements in the summer.

  • Cardinals' Drew Rom: Fans seven in no-decision

    Rom came away with a no-decision in Saturday's 15-6 rout of the Reds, giving up four runs on seven hits and three walks over 4.1 innings. He struck out seven.

    The Cardinals' offense handed the southpaw a 10-0 lead after two innings, but Rom wasn't efficient enough to stick around and qualify for his second win, getting the hook after 90 pitches (55 strikes). The seven strikeouts did tie his career high, however, set Sept. 13 against the Orioles. Rom has had a shaky start to his big-league career, posting a 32:19 K:BB through his first 33.2 innings but also an 8.02 ERA thanks to seven homers allowed. The 23-year-old could have an uphill climb to secure a full-time rotation spot next spring.

  • Cardinals' Drew Rom: Hit hard by Padres

    Rom (1-4) allowed eight runs (six earned) on 11 hits and a walk over 3.1 innings Sunday, striking out four and taking a loss against San Diego.

    Rom served up a three-run shot to Juan Soto in the first frame and allowed at least one run in each inning he appeared in. After his first career scoreless start, Rom has been tagged with 11 earned runs in just 6.2 innings over his last two outings. His ERA has shot up to 7.98 through 29.1 MLB frames. Rom is currently lined up to finish his 2023 campaign with a home matchup against the Reds.

  • Cardinals' Drew Rom: Hit hard in Tuesday's loss

    Rom (1-3) took the loss Tuesday, coughing up five runs on six hits and two walks over 3.1 innings as the Cardinals fell 7-3 to the Brewers. He struck out three.

    Five of the six hits off the southpaw went for extra bases, including a third-inning solo shot by William Contreras. Rom was coming off his best big-league outing to date last Wednesday when he blanked the Orioles over 5.1 innings, but for the most part the 23-year-old hasn't looked ready for the majors, stumbling to a 6.92 ERA, 1.85 WHIP and 21:15 K:BB through his first 26 MLB innings. Assuming St. Louis doesn't shuffle its rotation in order to evaluate another young arm, Rom lines up to take the mound again this weekend in San Diego.

  • Cardinals' Drew Rom: Excellent in first win

    Rom (1-2) earned the win Wednesday, allowing two hits and three walks over 5.1 scoreless innings in a 1-0 victory over the Orioles. He struck out seven.

    Rom was impressive against a strong Baltimore lineup, delivering 5.1 scoreless innings while setting a season high with seven strikeouts in his first major-league win. After struggling through his first four starts, the rookie left-hander now sports a 5.96 ERA with a 1.76 WHIP and 18:13 K:BB through 22.2 innings. Rom will look to build on Wednesday's performance in his next outing, currently scheduled for next week against the Brewers.

  • Cardinals' Drew Rom: Scuffles again

    Rom did not factor into the decision Friday, allowing four runs on seven hits and two walks over 3.2 innings in the Cardinals' win over Cincinnati. He didn't register a strikeout.

    After throwing 11 stellar innings at Triple-A Memphis with a 0.82 ERA and 18:4 K:BB following the trade deadline, Rom's major-league debut has been nothing short of a disaster. The 23-year-old sports a 7.79 ERA and 2.02 WHIP with an 11:8 K:BB in 17.1 innings over four starts. Rom currently lines up to face his former organization, the Orioles, on the road in his next start.

  • Cardinals' Drew Rom: Labors against Pirates

    Rom allowed three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out one batter over 4.2 innings in a no-decision against Pittsburgh on Saturday.

    Rom began the contest well, holding the Pirates scoreless through three frames. However, he gave up a run on a walk and a triple in the fourth, then saw the wheels fall off in the fifth when four of the six batters he faced reached base. Rom was lifted before he could complete five innings after Andrew McCutchen knotted the score 3-3 with a two-out RBI single. Rom at least avoided taking his third straight loss since being called up to the majors, but he's had a rough time with a 7.24 ERA, 1.90 WHIP and 11:8 K:BB over 13.2 frames thus far.

  • Cardinals' Drew Rom: Better in second start

    Rom (0-2) took the loss Sunday, allowing two runs on five hits and a walk over 5.1 innings against the Phillies. He struck out six.

    It was certainly a better performance from Rom after he allowed eight runs (six earned) across 3.2 innings in his big-league debut. Still, the rookie left-hander took a second loss as the Cardinals offense couldn't crack Aaron Nola in a 3-0 defeat. Rom had shown some promise in the minors this season, working to a 2.70 ERA while striking out 45 over his last seven Triple-A starts (33.1 innings). Sunday's outing could earn him another shot in the Cardinals' rotation -- Rom would currently line up for a home matchup with the Pirates next week.

  • Cardinals' Drew Rom: Will get another start

    Rom is tentatively scheduled to start Sunday in Philadelphia, John Denton of MLB.com reports.

    Rom struggled in his major-league debut Monday versus the Pirates, yielding eight runs -- six earned -- on eight hits and four walks over just 3.2 innings. He probably would have been sent back to the minors Tuesday under normal circumstances, but the Cardinals need him to fill a rotation spot after placing Matthew Liberatore (back) on the 15-day injured list.

  • Cardinals' Drew Rom: Hit hard in MLB debut

    Rom (0-1) took the loss Monday, allowing eight runs (six earned) on eight hits and four walks over 3.2 innings against Pittsburgh. He struck out four.

    The 23-year-old southpaw struggled to keep the Pirates at bay in his major-league debut and was pulled with two outs in the fourth inning after surrendering a three-run homer to Josh Palacios. Rom dazzled in his two starts at Triple-A Memphis after coming over from the Orioles in the Jack Flaherty trade, allowing just one earned run on two hits while striking out 18 across 11 innings; however, he received a rude welcome to the big leagues Monday. Whether the rookie will get another opportunity in the rotation remains uncertain.

  • Cardinals' Drew Rom: Recalled for MLB debut

    Rom was recalled from Triple-A Memphis ahead of his start Monday against the Pirates at PNC Park, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Rom will be making his major-league debut Monday. Acquired from the Orioles in the Aug. 1 Jack Flaherty trade, Rom allowed just one earned run while striking out 18 across 11 innings in two starts after joining Memphis. His numbers at Triple-A Norfolk in the Orioles organization this season weren't nearly as good (5.34 ERA), though he's missed bats consistently in the minors. The Cardinals have rotation spots up for grabs down the stretch, so Rom could earn additional starts if he pitches well Monday.
