Cardinals | Adam Wainwright developing strength

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright was throwing with less velocity in his first start of the season than he did before undergoing Tommy John surgery last spring. He hit 93 and 94 mph on the radar gun early in spring training, but his fastball was mostly around 89 to 90 mph later in spring after he got more innings under his belt. On Saturday, April 7, he was around 89 mph all day. "I think it's an ongoing process," Wainwright said. "... Early on in spring I was throwing quite a bit harder and I had more life on the ball. As my arm gets strong as we go here, it will come."
