O'Neill leaves game with injury, could force roster move; Goldschmidt swings back into lineup

An injury the Cardinals did not expect to linger didn’t as Paul Goldschmidt returned to the lineup Saturday after missing the home opener, and now they wait to see if an injury that could linger — does.

Tyler O’Neill left Saturday’s game with a groin injury that happened in the second inning as he tried to outrun a double play. O’Neill’s pace slowed considerably as he ran for first, and the Cardinals had him examined and scans taken of the area to determine the severity of his injury. A full diagnosis is not expected until Sunday morning, but the Cardinals will have a player, possibly outfielder Lane Thomas, nearby if O’Neill heads to the 10-day injured list.
