The Cardinals will edge Dakota Hudson (1-0, 2.08 ERA) back a day. Hudson is now scheduled to make his first start since Sept. 17, 2020 against Kansas City on Tuesday, with originally scheduled starter Jordan Hicks coming out of the bullpen. Adam Wainwright, Miles Mikolas and Steven Matz will complete their normal laps on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, with Hicks expected to make his first start over the weekend.
Cardinals coach Oliver Marmol returned after missing the last two games with the flu. He told reporters that being away was difficult.
“He (bench coach Skip Schumaker) handled everything perfectly,” Marmol told reporters before the game was postponed. “I thought about going to the Bahamas and giving him another week or so. No, he did a great job. He ran the whole thing and I never got in touch.”
