Cardinals Star Sonny Gray Reportedly Makes Progress After Tough Injury

St. Louis fans should be excited about Gray's progress so far

The St. Louis Cardinals recently had a major scare.

St. Louis seemingly is in a better spot right now than it was at the end of the 2023 season and one of the biggest reasons why is because the club was able to sign three-time All-Star Sonny Gray to help fix the rotation.

The Cardinals have high expectations this season and have been predicted by many to finish atop the National League Central standings. If the Cardinals can get back on track, Gray's performance will be a major reason why.

Gray recently suffered a hamstring injury that scared fans but he was able to have his first throwing session off of a mound Monday since the injury and "showed no signs" of limitations, according to's John Denton.

"Ever meticulous and detailed about his workouts, Cardinals (right-handed pitcher) Sonny Gray finishes his first throwing session off a mound in a week and heads straight for the iPad to review his mechanics," Denton said. "He showed no signs of being limited during the approximately 15-pitch session."

Although it wasn't a large sample size, the fact that Gray looked like himself in the session certainly is a positive sign. It's unclear how much time he will miss or if he will be ready for Opening Day, but it sounds like he is making progress in his recovery.

Gray is the club's most important starter and will have a major hand in the club's success in 2024. Hopefully, his recovery remains on schedule and he's able to continue making progress.
