JUPITER www.marlinsfanproshop.com/authentic-starlin-castro-jersey (www.marlinsfanproshop.com/authentic-andre-dawson-jersey) , Fla. (AP) — As unhittable as Jordan Hicks‘ 105 mph heater can be, a pitch clocked a little bit closer to the speed limit might ultimately be what makes him the St. Louis Cardinals’ closer.Developing the slider, a pitch Hicks began to get a feel for late last season, into a reliable second option has been Hicks’ focus this spring.“I felt like I needed to come in prepared, more ready to go with a better arsenal,” Hicks said. “Closers, they normally have pretty dirty secondary pitches.”Hicks threw seven of baseball’s 10 fastest pitches last season, when 659 of his offerings were clocked at 100 mph or higher.He only reached 102 mph Thursday in his spring debut, but that was plenty fast enough to keep Mets hitters off balance when the high-80s slider seemingly lumbered toward and dove away from the plate.“He’s already an amazing weapon,” St. Louis manager Mike Shildt said.If he could master the slider?“Then he would be a force,” Shildt said.Hicks earned six saves as a rookie last season, but Shildt isn’t in a hurry to anoint the 22-year-old righty the Cardinals’ closer.In one of the offseason’s higher-profile Wei-Yin Chen Jersey (www.marlinsfanproshop.com/authentic-wei-yin-chen-jersey) , free-agent moves St. Louis signed Andrew Miller to a two-year, $25 million contract.Known for his multi-inning shutdown performances, Miller could close for the Cardinals, reprise his multi-inning stopper role, or, as a left-hander, be the match-up call within a division teaming with potent left-handed offensive threats, most notably Chicago’s Anthony Rizzo, Cincinnati’s Joey Votto, and Milwaukee’s Christian Yelich.Miller, 33, had 36 of his 53 career saves for the New York Yankees in 2015.“I had a blast doing it Jeff Locke Jersey (www.marlinsfanproshop.com/authentic-jeff-locke-jersey) ,” Miller said. “It’s a pretty unique position to be in — your name and the game on the line.”The physical progression of three players currently at different stages of recovery from injuries could also affect what the Cardinals do with the final innings. St. Louis signed Luke Gregerson to close games last season, but a shoulder issue limited the righty to only 12 2/3 innings last season, none of which resulted in a save.Gregerson will throw his first bullpen in a couple of days.The Cardinals also have to determine how they’ll handle top pitching prospect Alex Reyes, who’s only pitched in four innings over the past two seasons after undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2017 and tearing his lat muscle last season. He’s impressed this spring and will make his Grapefruit League debut in the coming days.The Cardinals consider Reyes to be a starter, but with a plethora of starting candidates in camp they could elect to ease Reyes into action from the bullpen, much like they did with Carlos Martinez last season.Martinez saved five games late last year as he returned from a shoulder injury. He’s been shut down because of weakness in the same shoulder and will be re-evaluated on March 12. Martinez wouldn’t have enough time to make the opening day roster as a starter but could be ready to work out of the bullpen should St. Louis want him there. NEW YORK (AP) The New York Mets activated third baseman Todd Frazier from the disabled list before Thursday’s game with the Atlanta Braves.Frazier had been sidelined since July 9 with a left rib cage strain and appeared in two rehab games for Class A Brooklyn this week.”We’re glad to have Todd back,” manager Mickey Callaway said. ”We’re glad to have his leadership in the clubhouse. It’s always more fun with Todd around on the bench in the clubhouse, during the game. A guy you can plug into the middle of the lineup and he’s got a chance to go hit you a homer. So we’re glad that he’s back.”In the first season of a two-year deal, Frazier is hitting .217 with 10 homers and 32 RBIs in 61 games. Frazier also was sidelined from May 8 to June 2 with a strained left hamstring.The DL stints were the first of Frazier’s career, and he said he might need occasional days off.”You appreciate what Cal Ripken Jr. did,” Frazier said. ”It’s one of those things where, don’t be shy to ask for a day off every once in a while. It might help you in the long run.”Besides activating Frazier Cameron Maybin Jersey (www.marlinsfanproshop.com/authentic-cameron-maybin-jersey) , the Mets purchased the contract of right-hander Bobby Wahl from Triple-A Las Vegas.New York also optioned right-handed reliever Jacob Rhame to Las Vegas and placed infielder Phillip Evans on the disabled list with a fractured left tibia.To make room for Wahl on the 40-man roster, outfielder Kevin Kaczmarski was designated for assignment.Wahl was one two players acquired on July 22 from Oakland for closer Jeurys Familia.Wahl is 4-2 with a 2.20 ERA with 12 saves in 38 combined appearances between Las Vegas and Nashville in the Pacific Coast LeagueEvans was injured when Adam Eaton slid into him at second base in the first inning of Wednesday’s 5-3 loss at Washington.The Mets said Evans will be on crutches for a few weeks and will be out for about a month.In four stints with the Mets, Evans is hitting 3-for-21 (.143) in 15 games.On Thursday, Callaway said he did not think Eaton’s slide was clean. The Mets challenged the call, arguing that the slide was illegal, but it was upheld after a replay review.”I thought it was a little high up on the leg,” Callaway said. ”We have an injured player that could be out the rest of the season because of it.”In six stints with the Mets, Rhame is 0-1 with an 8.00 ERA in 18 appearances. He allowed six runs in two innings in Tuesday’s 25-4 loss at Washington.Kaczmarzki appeared in four games and was optioned to Class AAA on July 11.—
