• The Cardinals' July 31 game in Pittsburgh (6:05 p.m. CT) has been selected for ESPN's Wednesday Night Baseball telecast. That contest will be the fourth in a five-game series between the two National League Central rivals.
• Cardinals farm director John Vuch said that it is going to be at least a few more days before Oscar Taveras (right ankle sprain) appears in another game. Taveras, the Cardinals' top prospect, according to MLB.com, took one at-bat as part of a rehab assignment with the Gulf Coast League Cardinals on Monday and has not played since. He remains in Florida for his rehab.
• A strained right lat muscle will keep right-hander Tyrell Jenkins sidelined for at least another 3-4 weeks, Vuch confirmed. Jenkins, ranked by MLB.com as the organization's fifth-best prospect, will be on a conservative timetable largely because this is not the first time that he has dealt with this injury. Jenkins had been promoted to Palm Beach (Fla.) last month, but he made only three starts with the high Class A team before landing on the disabled list.
• FOX Sports Midwest's annual "This One's For You" telecast is scheduled for next Thursday during the Cardinals' home game against Philadelphia. The telecast, which will also be picked up by the American Forces Network, will feature interviews with members of the Missouri National Guard's 1-135th Attack Reconnaissance Battalion in Afghanistan. More than 300 family members of soldiers in that unit will be at the game.
FOX Sports Midwest will show select tweets -- they must include the hash tag #ThisOnesForYou and are sent to @FSMidwest or @Cardinals -- during the telecast. Some Instagram photos and videos will be shown on the Busch Stadium video board.
