Moss (ankle) is unlikely to return to the team Wednesday, despite becoming eligible, Nick Krueger of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After spraining his left ankle on July 5, Moss has been in a walking boot and receiving daily treatment, but despite progress he is still not ready to return to baseball activities. He will likely need a rehab assignment once he's healthy, so he will remain out for some time still.

Moss has been placed on the disabled list with a sprained left ankle, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is the first we've heard of the injury, but Moss is apparently dealing with a relatively severe sprain, as players typically get a few days to monitor an injury before a DL placement. The Cardinals' leading home run hitter, who's batting .251 on the year, won't be available until after the All-Star break, and the team recalled Randall Grichuk from Triple-A to take his place on the roster.

Updating a previous report, Moss will will start in right field Monday against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Moss was initially scheduled to sit Monday with southpaw Jon Niese on the mound for Pittsburgh, but the late scratch of outfielder Tommy Pham forced a lineup adjustment. Pham had been scheduled to play center field, but Stephen Piscotty will play there instead, making room for Moss in right. Moss is hitting just .186 against southpaws this season, but is 2-for-7 with a double in his career against Niese.

Moss hit his 15th home run, a solo shot, in a 1-for-4 game in Tuesday's loss to Houston.

EDGE Analysis

Moss extended his hitting streak to seven games and has five home runs in that span. Considering the way he's hitting in June, with six home runs and 10 RBI already in just nine games (seven starts), the Cardinals are going to have an awfully hard time keeping him out of the lineup. He has started in five straight games since sitting out two games between June 4 and June 8.

Moss went 2-for-6 with a two-run homer in Friday's 9-3 extra-inning victory over the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran slugger added insult to injury in a wild 12th inning, taking Juan Nicasio deep with two out to put the finishing touches on what would be a six-run frame. Moss has torn the cover off the ball to date in June, as he's now slashing .476/.500/1.286 for the month, with four consecutive multi-hit outings, five homers and eight RBI.

Moss went 2-for-5 with a walk and two homers in Wednesday's slugfest against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Moss belted a homer 426 feet into the right-field stands on a 2-1 pitch, breaking a 4-4 tie in the fifth inning. He didn't wait long for his next one, going deep on a line-drive solo-shot in the seventh that just cleared the right-field wall. Although his .239 average doesn't seem impressive at first glance, it is higher than any season since 2013. The outfielder's ISO sits at .331, outrageously above his .213 career average.
