Tyler O'Neill News
St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Tyler O'Neill (hamstring) is not being added to the team's roster for the Wild-Card Series this weekend against the Philadelphia Phillies, according to general manager John Mozeliak. O'Neill was injured in mid-September and hasn't been able to rejoin the lineup since, and he hasn't made enough progress to be included on the roster for the opening series of the playoffs. The 27-year-old was a disappointment in 2022, hitting .228/.308/.392 with 14 home runs, 58 RBI, 56 runs scored and 14 stolen bases in 334 at-bats. If the Cardinals advance to play the Atlanta Braves in the National League Division Series, it remains to be seen if O'Neill would be able to rejoin the team next week.
St. Louis Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol said that outfielder Tyler O'Neill (hamstring) hasn't made enough progress with his injury to be in the mix for the team's wild-card roster. O'Neill has been out since Sept. 16, and even if the Cardinals advance to the National League Division Series next week, there's a good chance that O'Neill might not be ready to return. The 27-year-old managed to play in just 96 regular season games this year and also hit a disappointing .228/.308/.392 with 14 home runs, 58 RBI, 56 runs scored and 14 stolen bases in 334 at-bats. With O'Neill out for the wild-card round, Dylan Carlson should continue serving as the team's starting center fielder.
St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Tyler O'Neill (hamstring) may not return from the 10-day injured list during the team's upcoming postseason run. "I think there's a shot, but obviously, the clock is ticking," said Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak. The 27-year-old sustained a Grade 1 left hamstring strain on September 17. He has been limited to 96 games due to injuries, slashing .228/.308/.392 with 14 home runs, 58 RBI, 56 runs, and 14 stolen bases over 383 plate appearances. O'Neill is not expected to return before the regular season, and his status for the postseason is up in the air. Dylan Carlson will continue to see everyday at-bats while O'Neill is sidelined.
St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Tyler O'Neill was limited to 96 games in 2022 due to shoulder, hamstring, and leg injuries. The 27-year-old slashed .228/.308/.392 with 14 home runs, 58 RBI, 56 runs, and 14 stolen bases over 383 plate appearances last season. Injuries could have been one of the reasons O'Neill's numbers dipped in 2022. He saw his exit velocity drop from 93 MPH in 2021 to 89.8 MPH in 2022, while his hard-hit percentage fell from 52.2% in 2021 to 43.4% in 2022. The young slugger is a dual threat and will look to rebound in 2023 after bashing 34 homers and stealing 15 bags in 2021. ATC is on board with this assessment and is projecting O'Neill with a .249/.320/.447 slash line with 26 home runs, 76 runs, 74 RBI, and 16 stolen bases in 2023. He could easily surpass those projections if he can stay healthy, as a 30-homer, 20-steal campaign isn't out of the question. O'Neill has an ADP of 103 in NFBC and could easily smash his ADP if he can come close to his 2021 totals. The high risk/high reward makes O'Neill well worth taking him at his current ADP, as fantasy managers could get a potential five-category star after pick 100.
