The Cardinals finally returned to action Aug. 15 after a long, coronavirus-caused layoff, but they still haven’t been at full strength. Shortstop Paul DeJong, catcher Yadier Molina, reliever Kodi Whitley and infielder Rangel Ravelo were absent from the Cardinals’ five games since last weekend, but they may not be unavailable for much longer. Manager Mike Shildt announced Tuesday that all of those players have been cleared to come off the COVID-19 injured list, Anne Rogers of MLB.com tweets and as Jeff Jones of the Belleville News first reported.
DeJong, Molina, Whitley and Ravelo were among the many Cardinals who tested positive, leading to the team’s protracted shutdown that began July 29. DeJong has been one of the most valuable shortstops in the game since he debuted in 2017, so he’ll be an especially welcome addition when he’s good to take the field again. The Cardinals will also be happy to have Molina back, as even though his offensive production has waned, he’s a heart-and-soul player for the franchise.
Since coming back, the shorthanded Cardinals have gone with Tommy Edman at short and a combination of Andrew Knizner and Matt Wieters behind the plate. All three have gotten off to poor starts this season.
Adding to the “unbelievable depth” (cited from a nit wit, Feb 2019)
Clepto, do you find that you get better results fighting Covid by injecting yourself with floral-scented Lysol or citrus-scented Lysol?

Pun…your comebacks are as weak as your sources. Take a step back a re-assess yourself. You have allowed Clepto to own you without Clepto lifting a finger. That’s hard to do.
You are a weird individual my little B Clepto? Just scary at this point
Y’all should just argue on a text chain or something
Wait what? I thought everyone died from covid.
Nah, just 171,000 in the US so far.
Hey, it is what it is.
How many of that 171k was gonna bite it from an illness in 2020 whether covid surfaced or not?
That’s the only real question that matters
We all die eventually. Why bother even having hospitals?
But to answer your question,
“Across the United States, at least 200,000 more people have died than usual since March, according to a New York Times analysis of estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
MJ you are incredibly insensitive. I hope you don’t have to experience a loss to COVID like many of us have.
Moron: maybe if you read the article you cited, you might add value. That NY Times article is NOT what you implied….yet again. Quit being a headline reader.
Quiet my little B?
Poor Clepto….you’re more bleach than man by now.

Covid is so deadly it killed 200,000 people not 171,000. It’s killed 29,000 people right under our noses and we had no clue!
90% of deaths are 55+
CDC as of June reported
Hospitalizations were 6x higher for underlying health conditions 45.4% vs 7.6%
Deaths were 12% higher for underlying health conditions 19.6% vs. 1.6%
If anything the kung flu has taught us the importance of taking care of ourselves better and getting regular checkups.

Sorry, forgot to add those numbers were based off 18% of total covid cases that had to be hospitalized at the time. 184,673 cases to be exact.
Well, Pun, thats typical. Change the subject when called out as being the type of loser who cites an article that doesnt even match what false narrative you were claiming…..nice work.
Betting on the fact someone wont read what you cite, hoping they see a citation and assume you are fact, when, in reality, you are just barely smart enough to hatch a scheme as such, to cover for the fact that you are a poorly educated, unachiever, whom the media just loves…..and yet, you reference someone else as having used bleach. Who bleached???? Going forward, you will just be referenced as a fake citing low quality commenter…um and thats fact, little boy.
Your incoherent rambling is a clear sign that you’ve moved on from bleach and are now chugging fish medication. Remember, hydroxychloroquine is not the same as chloroquine phosphate, though they are equally effective against the virus.
…a real crusher, Pun, you government dependent loser….real crusher.
Have anything original?
What I find odd is that, we locked down, practiced social distance, wear masks, kids were on break, there’s lots of uV light, we did not have concerts, closed bars, etc etc …….. yet A LOT of people have died.
Internet tough guy Clepto lol….such a little B
You know this thing leaves a lot of people (even teenagers) with horribly scarred lungs even if they don’t die, right? It’s just the number of fatalities that matters….. Look at how Freddie Freeman described his COVID experience. It sounded horrible.
Let’s just say 2020 is an “off” year for the people of Earth and move on. Cardinals get their starters back, great. The backups weren’t so bad, other than the guy who gave up 4 bombs in a row in his debut. That’s bad..
