Skip Schumaker Injury: Schumaker To Return To Team On Monday

The St. Louis Cardinals are slowly nursing themselves back to health, and when the team takes the field in Detroit on Tuesday, they'll be joined by a familiar face. Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak told reporters on Sunday that utility man Skip Schumaker will be with the team when it begins its series with the Detroit Tigers this week, and he's likely to be frequently seen in centerfield.

With both Schumaker and Jon Jay on the disabled list, the Cardinals have had a gaping hole in centerfield, and Schumaker is likely to man the position until Jay is ready to come back. In 81 at-bats across 29 games this season, Schumaker is batting .321/.378/.432 with five doubles, two triples and 12 runs batted in.
