Cardinals | Pitching rehab updates

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jake Westbrook (elbow) will throw an intense bullpen session Thursday, May 30, after last throwing 40 pitches off the mound Monday, May 27. He felt good enough to cancel his visit with Dr. James Andrews. RP Fernando Salas (shoulder) hasn't resumed throwing and doesn't know when he'll be cleared to do so.

Fantasy Tip: Westbrook's return to the rotation appears close, but the team will likely be cautious and make him go on a short rehab assignment. Rookie Michael Wacha has filled in in the rotation for the time being, but because of his lack of professional experience, it would seem likely that they'll send him back down when Westbrook is ready.
