Player Outlook
Miles Mikolas has been a solid big-league starter for the Cardinals since returning stateside in 2018 following a three-year run in the Korea Baseball Organization. Overall, he's registered a 3.78 ERA and 1.16 WHIP across 833 innings for St. Louis while managing a stingy 1.6 BB/9. He's topped 200 innings each of the last two years and has been a two-time All-Star wearing the birds on the bat. That all sounds nice, and is nice, but Mikolas is only a borderline option in fantasy because he allows too many balls in play and doesn't generate enough swing-and-miss with his pitch-to-contact approach. He made the most starts (35) in the majors last season but also surrendered the most hits (226) and struck out only 137 of the 860 batters he faced. Mikolas can offer volume, but it's not always the kind of volume you want in a standard scoring league.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Struggles with long ball

    Mikolas (7-8) allowed six runs on eight hits and struck out two without walking a batter over 5.1 innings to take the loss Sunday versus the Cubs. Four of the eight hits Mikolas allowed were homers, including two by Pete Crow-Armstrong. Prior to Sunday, Mikolas had allowed just one homer over his last six starts, though this was the fourth time this season he's given up multiple long balls. The veteran right-hander concludes the first half with a 5.13 ERA, which would be his worst in six seasons as a Cardinal, while adding a 1.22 WHIP and 77:18 K:BB through 112.1 innings over 20 starts.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Twirls gem for seventh win

    Mikolas (7-7) earned the win Monday at Washington, allowing six hits with no walks over 6.2 scoreless innings. He struck out three. The veteran right-hander posted his second scoreless outing and 11th quality start of the season with this 93-pitch performance. Mikolas allowed just one extra-base hit -- a double by Keibert Ruiz in the fourth -- working around five singles en route to his 61st career win. The 35-year-old now owns a 4.88 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 75:18 K:BB across 107 innings this season. He is currently not scheduled to make another start until after the All-Star break.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Disastrous outing in loss

    Mikolas (6-7) was hit with the loss against the Reds on Thursday, allowing 10 runs (nine earned) on 12 hits and one walk over 4.1 inning. He struck out one. Things got ugly in a hurry for Mikolas as the veteran gave up runs in each of the first five innings before finally being relieved by John King. The nine earned runs allowed easily marked a season high for the right-hander, as did the 12 hits he surrendered. Mikolas had gone at least six innings in six consecutive starts coming in, allowing three or fewer runs in five of those outings. Thursday also marked his first loss since May 31 against the Phillies.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Settles in to earn win

    Mikolas (6-6) earned the win against the Giants on Saturday, allowing four runs on six hits and two walks with three strikeouts over six innings. Mikolas struggled early, allowing three runs in the first inning and another in the third. He bounced back with three perfect frames and departed with a 7-4 lead at the conclusion of the sixth. Mikolas broke a streak of five consecutive quality starts but was still able to earn his third victory in his past four starts. The 35-year-old now owns a 4.68 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 67:17 K:BB and lines up to face the Reds next week.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Continues stellar stretch

    Mikolas (5-6) earned the win Sunday, allowing one run on four hits against the Cubs. He struck out five. Mikolas held the Cubs scoreless through six, then was pulled following a one-out double by Ian Happ in the seventh. Happ later came around to score, but the Cardinals held the Cubs scoreless the rest of the way to secure the fifth win of the season for Mikolas. It was the second straight start Mikolas entered the seventh having allowed zero runs and the fifth straight quality start for Mikolas, who holds a 2.58 ERA and 0.73 WHIP over 31.1 innings during that stretch. The 35-year-old veteran will look to continue to turn back the clock in his next start, currently slated to take place next weekend when the Giants make their way to St. Louis.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Exceptional in no-decision

    Mikolas didn't factor into the decision Tuesday against Pittsburgh, allowing one hit and one walk across seven scoreless innings. He struck out six. Mikolas carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning, when Bryan Reynolds broke up the no-no with a leadoff triple. Despite his outstanding start, Mikolas wasn't able to pick up the win, as the Cardinals didn't put up a run until the bottom of the ninth. Though the 35-year-old completed seven innings for the first time in 2024, he threw only 84 pitches. Mikolas has generated a quality start in four straight appearances and hasn't allowed more than three runs in six consecutive starts. He'll head to Wrigley Field to close out a two-start week Sunday.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Third straight quality start

    Mikolas (4-6) earned the win Wednesday over the Astros, allowing two runs on five hits over six innings. He struck out three. Mikolas shut out Houston through his first four innings, ultimately allowing both runs on back-to-back solo homers to Yainer Diaz and Trey Cabbage in the fifth. While it's Mikolas' first win since May 12, the veteran right-hander has now delivered quality starts in three straight outings and five of his last seven starts. After a rough start to the year, Mikolas has lowered his ERA to 5.32 with a 1.28 WHIP and 53:14 K:BB across 71 innings. He'll look to build on his recent success in his next start, currently scheduled for early next week at home versus Pittsburgh.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Sharp despite sixth loss

    Mikolas (3-6) took the loss Friday against the Phillies, allowing three runs on five hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out five. All three of the runs against Mikolas came in the second inning, including a pair on an Edmundo Sosa homer. While Mikolas would blank the Phillies over his final four frames, St. Louis could only muster a pair of runs off Aaron Nola in an eventual 4-2 loss. The 35-year-old Mikolas has started to turn things around after a rough start to the year, delivering quality starts in three of his last four outings. He's lowered his ERA to 5.54 with a 1.32 WHIP and 50:14 K:BB across 65 innings this year. Mikolas is currently lined up for a road matchup with the Astros in his next start.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Turns in quality start

    Mikolas allowed three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out six over six innings in a no-decision versus the Cubs on Saturday. Mikolas had an extra day of rest after Friday's game was rained out and his started was pushed back. The right-hander threw 82 pitches (53 strikes) in a decent performance, though he exited with the game tied at 3-3. He's tossed three quality starts over five outings in May, allowing 13 runs over 27 innings this month. For the season, Mikolas has a 5.64 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 45:13 K:BB over 59 innings across 11 starts. He's tentatively scheduled to make his next start in Philadelphia, which is a daunting matchup for a pitcher that has had middling results at best in 2024.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Victorious in quality outing

    Mikolas (3-5) allowed three runs on six hits and three walks over six innings Sunday, striking out three and earning a win over the Brewers. It looked like Mikolas would be chased early after Milwaukee plated three runs in the first inning. Instead, he settled in for a quality start and allowed only one Brewer to reach scoring position over the next five frames. He now has four quality starts through nine outings this season, with two coming in his last three appearances. Mikolas forced just four whiffs Sunday and hasn't reached double digits in any start this year. He'll carry a 6.19 ERA into his next outing, which is lined up to be at home against Boston.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Falters in fifth against Mets

    Mikolas (2-5) took the loss Tuesday against the Mets, allowing six runs on nine hits while striking out three over four innings. Mikolas coasted through four innings unscathed before the Mets' offense finally came alive in the fifth. They chased him for six runs on six hits, highlighted by a Brandon Nimmo three-run homer, and he was pulled before even recording an out in the inning. After a promising start, Tuesday's outing ended up being a total disaster for Mikolas, the fourth time this year he's given up five or more runs. The 35-year-old now owns a 6.43 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 32:7 K:BB in 42 innings and lines up for a weekend start on the road against the Brewers.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Quality start in loss

    Mikolas (2-4) took the loss Wednesday against the Tigers, allowing three runs on six hits over six innings. He struck out four. Most of the damage against Mikolas came early -- Colt Keith opened the scoring with an RBI double in the second inning before Matt Vierling extended Detroit's lead to 3-0 with a two-run homer in the third. The 35-year-old Mikolas held the Tigers off the board in his final three frames to earn a quality start, but the Cardinals couldn't climb out of the early hole, sticking the right-hander with the loss. Mikolas has been better after a rough start to the year, allowing five runs over 11.2 innings in his last two starts. His ERA now sits at 5.68 with a 1.39 WHIP and 29:7 K:BB across seven starts (38 innings). Mikolas is slated for a home matchup with the Mets in his next outing.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Just misses quality start

    Mikolas (2-3) picked up the win Friday, giving up two runs on seven hits over 5.2 innings in a 4-2 victory over the Mets. He struck out five without walking a batter. The right-hander fell just short of his third quality start of the season, getting the hook in the sixth inning after 85 pitches (65 strikes) following doubles by Francisco Lindor and J.D. Martinez. Mikolas also served up a homer to light-hitting catcher Tomas Nido, the fourth long ball he's allowed in his last two starts, Mikolas will carry a 5.91 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 25:7 K:BB through 32 innings into his next outing, scheduled to come on the road next week in Detroit.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Serves up three homers in loss

    Mikolas (1-3) was charged with the loss Saturday against Milwaukee after he allowed five runs on nine hits and no walks across 4.2 innings. He struck out five. Mikolas gave up a two-run homer to Rhys Hoskins during the opening frame but rebounded and was staked to a 4-2 lead after three innings. The right-hander then surrendered three more runs on a pair of homers in the fourth, setting him up for the loss. The 35-year-old entered Saturday's contest having not given up a homer in his previous three starts. Mikolas has two quality starts in five turns through the rotation but has allowed exactly five runs in each of his other three outings, which results in a 6.49 ERA and 1.52 WHIP over 26.1 frames.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Can't escape fifth in loss

    Mikolas (1-2) took the loss Sunday against the Diamondbacks, allowing five runs on four hits and two walks while striking out three over 4.2 innings. Mikolas tossed four scoreless frames before the Diamondbacks rallied in the fifth and chased him out of the inning. He would allow a sacrifice fly to Jace Peterson and an RBI double to Jake McCarthy before walking consecutive hitters and exiting the game with the bases loaded. The bullpen did him no favors, allowing all three inherited runners to score. Mikolas didn't fool many in this one, registering just five whiffs on 75 pitches. It's been mixed results for Mikolas early on, as he'll take a 5.82 ERA and 1.43 WHIP into his next start, which projects to be against the division-leading Brewers next weekend.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Posts quality start

Mikolas rolled through four shutout frames before the Phillies put a pair of runs on the board in the fifth inning. It was his second straight quality start after getting tagged with five runs in his season debut. He now owns a 4.76 ERA with a lackluster 12:5 K:BB through 17 innings. Mikolas is lined up to start in Arizona this weekend.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Rough start to season

    Mikolas (0-1) took the loss against the Dodgers on Thursday, allowing five runs on seven hits and two walks over 4.1 innings. He struck out five. The Dodgers jumped out to a quick lead on Mikolas, scoring twice in the first inning before the 35-year-old right-hander allowed three more runs on a pair of homers in the third. It's certainly not the start to the season Mikolas wanted after he struggled to a 9-13 record with a 4.78 ERA across 35 starts last year. He'll look to get on track in his next outing, tentatively lined up for early next week in San Diego.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Trying to shake off poor 2023

    Mikolas is retooling his slider for 2024 after a disappointing 2023 season during which he had a 4.78 ERA over 201.1 innings, John Denton of MLB.com reports. Mikolas' poor whiff rate (16.7 percent) contributed to his problems in 2023. "I'm working on some different breaking balls and working with some other stuff and so far, so good," said Mikolas. "Maybe not so much [changing] the shape as I am mixing things up more. The mix I had last year wasn't overly successful, so maybe it bodes better if I am mixing things up better." As part of his changes, Mikolas also wants to throw fewer strikes -- batters hit .225 off of him after taking two strikes in 2023. Mikolas has a lot to prove as the longest-tenured member of the Cardinals' rotation following Adam Wainwright's retirement, but it's unclear if his offseason changes will help the 35-year-old get his ERA back under 4.00.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Matches season high for strikeouts

    Mikolas (9-13) allowed three runs on seven hits and struck out 10 without walking a batter over seven innings to earn the win Sunday over the Reds. Mikolas matched his season high with 10 strikeouts. He logged quality starts in his last two outings of the season after an inconsistent campaign overall, which saw the veteran right-hander post a 4.78 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 137:39 K:BB across 201.1 innings. Mikolas is under contract for 2024, so he should be a mid-rotation starter for the Cardinals after enduring the worst of his five years with the club in 2023.
