St. Louis Cardinals Place Outfielder On Injured List

Tyler O'Neill is heading back to the injured list, as he once again is dealing with a hamstring strain.

This is certainly not ideal for the St. Louis Cardinals because they are gearing up for the playoffs and O'Neill is a solid part of their lineup. He also had issues with his hamstring earlier this season, so it is tough to see that he has to miss time again because of it. 

After hitting 34 home runs last season with the Cardinals, O'Neill has 14 home runs to go along with a .228 batting average. Although he hasn't had the best of seasons in 2022, knowing he is capable of being an effective power hitter makes his absence notable. Here's to hoping he has a fast recovery and is back on the field soon.
