Cardinals | Activate Jake Westbrook, option Michael Wacha

The St. Louis Cardinals have activated SP Jake Westbrook (elbow) from the 15-day disabled list and optioned SP Michael Wacha.

Fantasy Tip: It's a bit of a hit for his fantasy owners, but Wacha's age probably was a factor in him getting the boot and St. Louis keeping Tyler Lyons up. Wacha could still be worth a stash in many deep-mixed leagues, but it'll make roster management a bit difficult.

As for Westbrook, he had a 1.62 ERA before he hit the DL, but it's hard-pressed that he'll keep that up, though he could be an occasional cavernous mixed-league option even after a correction happens.
