The St. Louis Cardinals (15-19) will begin their second series of the year against the New York Mets (16-18) on Monday night after a frustrating series loss against the Chicago White Sox. The Cardinals are hoping this is the series their offense gets rolling against a team they took two of three from in New York recently.

Even with a lot of noise this weekend regarding the job status of hitting coach Turner Ward and the continued lackluster performance from the Cardinals' offense, the only notable change made to the lineup today was inserting Jose Fermin into the lead-off spot. The Cardinals continue to back Ward and the rest of the coaching staff, but it will become even more difficult to do so if the offense does not get going this series.

The club did place Giovanny Gallegos on the injured list today and added reliever Chris Roycroft to replace him on the roster. Gallegos could not record an out in his last two appearances while giving up seven runs, forcing the Cardinals to make some kind of change there.

Probable starting pitchers

  • The Cardinals are sending Kyle Gibson (2-2, 3.79 ERA) to the mound tonight in hopes that he can continue his run of quality starts. Gibson has made six starts this season for St. Louis, four of them quality starts, and in all six of them he's gone at least six innings for the club. After a bullpen game on Sunday, the Cardinals could really use length out of Gibson once again, but with how their offense has looked, they also need to put up a lot of zeros.
  • Sean Manaea (1-1, 3.07 ERA) will toe the rubber tonight for the Mets, who's also had himself a really nice season thus far in his new uniform. Manaea hasn't given the Mets the length that Gibson has given St. Louis thus far (he's reached six innings pitched just once this year), but he's allowed two runs or less in all but one start thus far.
