  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Recalled from Memphis

    St. Louis recalled Herrera from Triple-A Memphis on Wednesday.

    Herrera could see a couple of starts at catcher as the Cardinals play out the string on a highly disappointing 2023 season, though he'll have to contend with both Willson Contreras and Andrew Knizner. Herrera, 23, has gone 8-for-23 (.348) with an .814 OPS in eight games this year at the big-league level.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Optioned to Triple-A

    Herrera was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Monday.

    Herrera will head back to Memphis after he spent nearly three weeks with the major-league squad, going 8-for-23 with a double, two RBI and three runs scored over eight contests. With Andrew Knizner back as the team's backup catcher, Herrera will look to continue to impress at Triple-A in order to return to St. Louis' roster later this season.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Three hits in win

    Herrera went 3-for-3 with a run scored and a hit-by-pitch in Saturday's 9-6 win over the Nationals.

    Herrera has done everything asked of him so far, going 6-for-12 with a double, two RBI and three runs scored over his three games while filling in for Andrew Knizner (groin) on the 26-man roster. Herrera's playing time has been limited with Willson Contreras occupying a starting role, but John Denton of MLB.com reports manager Oliver Marmol is considering keeping three catchers around once Knizner is activated from the injured list.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Called up Wednesday

    Herrera was called up from Triple-A Memphis on Wednesday.

    Herrera will return to the big leagues after he was optioned to Memphis ahead of the 2023 campaign. The catcher has produced a .308 average with eight homers, 44 RBI, 39 runs and seven stolen bases over 185 at-bats in 50 games in Triple-A this year. Herrera will now operate as the primary reserve option behind Willson Contreras after Andrew Knizner (groin) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Optioned to Memphis

    Herrera was optioned to Triple-A Memphis by the Cardinals on Thursday.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Withdraws from WBC

    Herrera will remain in camp with the Cardinals instead of playing for Panama at the World Baseball Classic, John Denton of MLB.com reports.

    Herrera withdrew from the WBC on Saturday, and he'll now turn his focus on competing for the backup catcher spot behind Willson Contreras. Herrera went 2-for-18 with one RBI, two walks and eight strikeouts across 22 plate appearances in the majors last season. He also hit .274/.381/.402 with six home runs, six stolen bases and 34 RBI in 65 games with Triple-A Memphis. Andrew Knizner is more likely to open the season as the Cardinals' backup catcher, but Herrera will try to force the issue with a strong spring.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Sent down Monday

    Herrera was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Monday.

    Herrera was called up Saturday to provide depth behind the dish, but he didn't appear in either of the last two games. While he'll remain on the taxi squad, the 22-year-old will lose his spot on the active roster after Yadier Molina (personal) was reinstated from the restricted list.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Promoted from taxi squad

    Herrera was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Saturday.

    With Yadier Molina traveling to Puerto Rico to handle personal matters, Herrera will join the team from the taxi squad as short-term catching depth. Herrera has been used sparingly during his major-league stints this year and he's struggled in limited action, going 2-for-18 with eight strikeouts.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Heads back to minors

    Herrera was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Friday.

    The 22-year-old joined the Cardinals for the two-game series against the Blue Jays this week and will now return to Triple-A. Herrera didn't appear in either contest for St. Louis and is unlikely to be a factor in the majors the rest of the year. He has a .295/.385/.432 slash line with three home runs and 21 RBI in 37 games for Memphis this season.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Returns to big leagues

    Herrera was called up from Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday.

    Herrera will make his return to the big leagues after joining the Cardinals for a 11-game stint earlier this summer. He'll replace Austin Romine on the active roster for the team's two-game series in Toronto. Herrera owns a .295 average with three homers, 21 RBI, 22 runs and two stolen bases over 139 at-bats over 37 games with Memphis this season. He'll look to improve upon the .111 average he produced over his first 11 career major-league contests.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Heads back to Triple-A

    Herrera was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Monday.

    Herrera joined the big club for a second time in mid-June, but he picked up just two hits over 18 at-bats, so he will head back to the minors for the time being. Herrera is one of the Cardinals' better prospects, so he could get another shot with the big club before the campaign comes to a close, particularly if Yadier Molina (knee) continues to miss time.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Losing work to Knizner

    Herrera is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Phillies.

    Herrera's run as the Cardinals' No. 1 catcher may have come to an end. He'll be on the bench for the third time in four games while Andrew Knizner picks up another start behind the dish.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Sitting again Friday

    Herrera will sit Friday versus the Phillies, John Denton of MLB.com reports.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Not in Wednesday's lineup

    Herrera isn't in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Marlins, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Herrera started in the last three games and went 2-for-9 with two walks and three strikeouts. Andrew Knizner is taking over behind the dish and batting ninth Wednesday.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Receives second straight start

    Herrera will start at catcher and bat ninth in Monday's game against the Marlins, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Since Yadier Molina (knee) remains without a clear timeline to return from the injured list and with Andrew Knizner sitting on a lowly .525 OPS through 136 plate appearances on the season, the Cardinals may be ready to give Herrera glimpse as their primary catcher. The 22-year-old rookie will pick up his second straight start after going 2-for-3 with a walk in Sunday's 6-5 loss to the Cubs. Prior to being called up from the minors following Molina's placement on the IL, Herrera showcased a dash of pop (.145 ISO) and strong plate discipline (12.7 percent walk rate, 14.7 percent strikeout rate) over his 129 plate appearances with Triple-A Memphis.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: First major-league hit

    Herrera went 2-for-3 with a walk in a 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Cubs on Sunday.

    The rookie catcher picked up his first major-league hit with a single off Alec Mills in the second inning. He later walked and singled again to make it a two-hit game. The Cardinals recalled the backstop from Triple-A Memphis on Friday when Yadier Molina was sidelined with knee inflammation. Herrera and Andrew Knizner are both in the mix for at-bats while Molina is out, and it is worth monitoring if either one of them can make a statement with the newfound opportunity.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Recalled by Cardinals

    Herrera was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Friday.

    The 22-year-old will join the Cardinals as additional depth behind the dish after Yadier Molina (knee) was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday. Herrera hasn't yet made any plate appearances in the majors and should serve as the backup to Andrew Knizner. However, Herrera could have a chance to carve out playing time as Knizner has gone just 1-for-22 with a walk and seven strikeouts over his last seven games.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Set to rejoin major-league club

    Herrera will be recalled by the Cardinals on Friday, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    Herrera spent a few days with the Cardinals in late May, and he'll rejoin the big-league club as a backup to Andrew Knizner since the team will place Yadier Molina (knee) on the 10-day injured list Friday. After failing to make any plate appearances during his first stint with the major-league club, Herrera should have more chances to prove himself at the top level while Molina is sidelined.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Sent to Triple-A

    Herrera was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Thursday.

    Herrera received his first taste of the big leagues this week with Yadier Molina (personal) on the bereavement list, though he didn't actually make his MLB debut. Molina is back on the active roster Thursday, prompting Herrera's return to Triple-A.
