The power of the sage is strong.
Miles Mikolas has been named an All-Star for the second time in his career. He was previously an All-Star selection in 2018.
The 33-year old joins Paul Goldschmidt, Nolan Arenado, Albert Pujols, and Ryan Helsley as the Cardinals representatives for the National League in the 2022 MLB All-Star Game this Tuesday. Arenado, despite being named to the team, will not participate in order to rest his back.
Mikolas (7-7), enters the break with a 2.54 ERA, and earlier this season came within one strike of a no-hitter against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
In the past eight games, only one Cardinals starter has made it through at least seven innings. And that starter is Mikolas (he’s done so twice). He allowed only two more singles over seven innings and threw two double play balls as the Cardinals dominated Cincinnati early and posted an 11-3 victory.
