The Cardinals want to be more careful with Jordan Hicks

Cardinals reliever Jordan Hicks recorded his first career save in the 6-4 win over the Reds on Saturday, becoming the third youngest pitcher in franchise history to record a save. He struck out Scooter Gennett and Eugenio Suarez to end the game, stranding Joey Votto after a one-out single. It was the third consecutive day Hicks had pitched.

 

"I feel pretty good," Hicks said after the win. "As good as you can feel after back-to-back-to-back days. A little sore but I am good."

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said they're being cautious with Hicks as always

"We just need to listen to him," Matheny said. "He is good about telling us. Days when he isn't feeling good, we shut him down. If the trainers see anything we shut him down."
