Stephen Piscotty went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer to lead the Cardinals to a 3-1 win over the Padres on Wednesday.
Piscotty hit his third homer in 15 games since returning from Triple-A on Aug. 20. It looked like his playing time might be limited when Randal Grichuk was heating up at the end of the month, but now that Tommy Pham has hurt, there hasn't been a crunch in the Cardinals outfield these last couple of days.

Stephen Piscotty went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer and three runs scored as the Cardinals beat the Giants 11-6 on Friday.

Piscotty's homer came as part of a six-run ninth inning for the Cardinals. It was his second homer -- and it gave him just his second and third RBI -- since he returned from Triple-A on Aug. 1. The big game will help his case for playing time, but with Randal Grichuk, who also homered tonight, performing so well, Piscotty probably still won't play more than half of the time.
Sep 2 - 1:56 AM

Stephen Piscotty reached base three times and smacked a solo homer in Tuesday's loss to the Padres.

Piscotty hit the second of back-to-back shot in the fourth inning, as he followed Jedd Gyorko's bomb with one of his own that tied the game at the time. He's started both games since his recall and has reached base six times. Piscotty will need to keep hitting in order to play over Randal Grichuk, but we'd rather have him out of the two down the stretch.

Cardinals recalled OF Stephen Piscotty from Triple-A Memphis.

Piscotty will be the team's 26th man for Sunday's game in Williamsport, PA, but he could potentially stick around after that. He hit four home runs and posted a 1.202 OPS over eight games for Memphis after being demoted earlier this month. Randal Grichuk is hitting .372/.400/.674 over his last 11 games, so the Cards seem unlikely to bench him right now even if Piscotty does stick with the big club.
Aug 20 - 10:04 AM

Cardinals optioned OF Stephen Piscotty to Triple-A Memphis.

It's pretty shocking on the surface given that Piscotty was handed a six-year, $33.5 million contract extension just four months ago. However, the Cards have lots of options in their outfield and Piscotty has not being able to get it going this season, batting just .232/.340/.362 with six homers in 75 games. Perhaps he'll be able to get on track against lesser competition. Randal Grichuk and Jose Martinez are in line to see most of the starts in right field.
Aug 7 - 4:23 PM

Stephen Piscotty is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers.

Aug 2 - 4:21 PM

Piscotty was on the disabled list for a little over two weeks with a groin strain. The 26-year-old right fielder has been a major disappointment here in 2017, after signing a six-year, $33.5 million contract extension with St. Louis in early April.

Piscotty will be rehabbing at Low-A at least through the weekend. The initial hope was that he would be activated from the disabled list earlier this week, but he was not quite ready to return to the team when first eligible. Piscotty has been out of action since July 15 with a right groin strain.
Jul 26 - 4:42 PM

Stephen Piscotty (groin) did some running pre-game on Monday.

Jul 24 - 4:39 PM

Stephen Piscotty (groin) won't be ready to return from the disabled list when he's first eligible on Tuesday.

Jul 24 - 1:44 PM

Stephen Piscotty (groin) is expected to return from the disabled list when first eligible on July 25.

Piscotty's right groin strain is considered mild, as he's expected to head out on a rehab assignment later this week. Jose Martinez and Mags Sierra will see time in right field over the next few days before Randal Grichuk (back) returns on Thursday.
Jul 16 - 9:35 AM

Cardinals placed OF Stephen Piscotty on the 10-day disabled list with a right groin strain.

Jul 14 - 10:43 PM

Stephen Piscotty was forced to leave Friday's game against the Pirates due to an apparent groin injury.

Piscotty sustained the injury while making a throw from the outfield. The club should provide an update on the severity of the injury after the conclusion of the game. With Randal Grichuk already on the disabled list, the Cardinals can't afford to lose another outfielder for a substantial period of time.
