Cards’ Mikolas to get injection, likely to miss start of season

St. Louis Cardinals right-hander Miles Mikolas will receive a platelet-rich
plasma injection in his ailing throwing arm, likely delaying his regular-season
debut by about one month. The 2018 All-Star received a similar injection after
last season to treat a flexor tendon issue. St. Louis manager Mike Shildt says
the injection will keep Mikolas from throwing for three to four weeks. Once he
is cleared to throw, Mikolas will have to restart his throwing program from the
beginning.
