St. Louis Cardinals
As this is being written the Cards are just a half game back of the Cubs in the NL Central. Given you can make an easy case that they have only recently begun to play good ball they are definitely a factor. With recent injuries though they may need to make a move. The offense is light right now without Marcell Ozuna, he has been their most productive bat.
Miles Mikolas is probably never going to have a season like he did last year when he won 18 games. All of his metrics are up, hits, homers walks so it is not surprising that the ERA is too. On the road he has been a disaster with a 1-6 record and an ERA over 7. This looks like a fade spot even though the team has been playing really well.
The Pirates have to be looking to unload at this point. With a week to go before the trade deadline they are in last in the Central and even though the gap is smaller than in other division they are still not really a threat. Josh Bell has cooled and with him and some pitching injuries any chance of a sleeper season are gone.
Joe Mugrove cooled from his hot start but I still like him. He does not give up a lot of hits, can keep the ball in the park and get a strikeout when he needs one. His last start was one of his best but consistency has been an issue. In four of his last six starts he has given up 1ER or less but his worst start in that stretch was a loss at STL. They might have his number.
