MLB Rumors: No Timetable On A Return For St. Louis Cardinals Star


Despite a recent hot-streak, the St. Louis Cardinals still find themselves sitting at 4th place in the National League Central, and unfortunately, it appears as though one of their top stars won't be back as the team expected, leaving them without a power threat for more time to come.

The power hitting 27-year old has been out of action for the past three weeks with a back strain, and was expected to do a rehab stint this past weekend, but unfortunately, the progression isn't coming along as well as the team would have hoped, and there's no timetable on when a potential rehab start would now begin. 

After slugging a career high 34 home runs back in 2021, O'Neill has struggled in a big way to start the 2023 season, hitting just .228 with 2 home runs and 6 RBI in 29 games this season, but if St. Louis can continue building momentum and get him back, there's no reason why they can't claw their way back into a playoff spot.
