Cardinals' Matthew Liberatore: Recalled ahead of start

Liberatore was recalled ahead of his scheduled start in Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Pirates. Liberatore will be the 27th man for the doubleheader, which suggests he could head right back to the minors after his outing. He hasn't done quite enough to stick permanently in the big-league rotation through his first three starts at the highest level, posting a 5.54 ERA and 10:8 K:BB, though a date with the Pirates could help him improve those numbers.

Cardinals' Matthew Liberatore: Returning Tuesday

Liberatore will be recalled to start the first half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Pirates, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports. Liberatore has made one strong start and two poor ones thus far in his brief big-league career, giving him a 5.54 ERA and 10:8 K:BB overall. His major-league debut came against the Pirates in late May and was one of those poor outings, as he allowed four runs on seven hits across 4.2 frames, but his prospect pedigree suggests that better results should be coming soon.

St. Louis Cardinals: Don’t jump ship on Matthew Liberatore

St. Louis Cardinals fans shouldn’t be worried after pitching prospect Matthew Liberatore’s mediocre starts. Matthew Liberatore must feel as though the weight of the world is on his shoulders. The St. Louis Cardinals acquired him in early 2020 for outfielders Randy Arozarena and Jose Martinez, and as fans know, Arozarena tore up the league in the postseason with the Tampa Bay Rays, leading them to the World Series.

Cardinals' Matthew Liberatore: Sent down Friday

Liberatore was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Friday. Liberatore made his third major-league start Thursday against the Cubs and allowed four runs in 3.1 innings to take the loss. The southpaw has had an inconsistent start to his big-league career with a 5.54 ERA and 1.77 WHIP in 13 innings over three outings. However, the 22-year-old remains one of the Cardinals' top prospects, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him rejoin the major-league club at some point. Liberatore's demotion could signal that Steven Matz (shoulder) will be ready to rejoin the rotation next week.

Why the Cardinals promoted Matthew Liberatore and what it means

Why the St. Louis Cardinals promoted left-hander Matthew Liberatore and what it means for the team moving forward. After Steven Matz walked off the mound at PNC Park with trainers on Sunday, two thoughts immediately popped into my head: 1) how significant is the left shoulder injury? and 2) how will the Cardinals replace him if he’s indeed placed on the Injured List?

Cardinals' Matthew Liberatore: Back in big leagues

The Cardinals recalled Liberatore from Triple-A Memphis on Monday. It's been a busy three days for Liberatore. He was called up for his big-league debut Saturday before being optioned the next day, only to rejoin St. Louis one day later with Steven Matz (shoulder) landing on the injured list. It's unclear exactly how long Matz's absence will last, but Liberatore will get the chance to replace him in the rotation and should have at least a couple more starts to prove he belongs in the big leagues. His debut wasn't particularly good, as he allowed four runs in 4.2 innings against the lowly Pirates, but he's talented enough that there's reason to expect more going forward. According to Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat, Liberatore is scheduled to make his second start with the Cardinals next Saturday versus the Brewers in St. Louis.

Cardinals promote top prospects Nolan Gorman, Matthew Liberatore; place Tyler O’Neill on IL

There’s a momentous roster shakeup in St. Louis, as the Cardinals are set to welcome two of the game’s top prospects to the big leagues in the coming days. As first reported by Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (Twitter links), the team has promoted both Nolan Gorman and Matthew Liberatore for this weekend’s series against the Pirates. Katie Woo of the Athletic tweets that outfielder Tyler O’Neill is headed to the 10-day injured list because of a right shoulder impingement in one corresponding roster move.

Cardinals' Matthew Liberatore: Headed back to Triple-A

The Cardinals optioned Liberatore to Triple-A Memphis on Sunday, John Denton of MLB.com reports. Due to a May 17 doubleheader with the Mets, the Cardinals temporarily moved to a six-man rotation, which allowed Liberatore to receive his first call-up to the big leagues earlier in the weekend. He made his MLB debut Saturday, starting in the Cardinals' 5-4 win over the Pirates while allowing four runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out three in 4.2 innings. Even if he fared better against Pittsburgh, Liberatore likely still would have been headed back to the minors, as the Cardinals will move back to a five-man rotation during the upcoming week. The Cardinals have a doubleheader coming up June 4 in Chicago against the Cubs, so Liberatore could be an option to get called up and make another spot start that day if the St. Louis rotation remains intact prior to the twin bill.

Cardinals' Matthew Liberatore: Yields four runs in debut

Liberatore did not factor in the decision against Pittsburgh on Saturday, pitching 4.2 innings and allowing four runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out three. Liberatore was hit hard throughout the outing, as five of the seven hits against him went for extra bases. Still, he would have qualified for the win with one additional out, but Pittsburgh racked up four hits and scored twice with two outs in the bottom of the fifth to send the rookie to the dugout. Liberatore's overall stat line was uninspiring -- he threw less than 60 percent of his pitches for strikes and induced a mere five swings-and-misses. It remains to be seen if he'll get another chance to start or be returned to the minors moving forward.
