St. Louis Cardinals RPs Kevin Siegrist (hand, neck, forearm) and John Gast (shoulder) lacked explosiveness on their pitches last year after dealing with various injuries. Siegrist dealt with muscle tears in his hand, nerve pain in his neck and forearm irritation, but he said he's healthy after resting in the offseason. Gast underwent shoulder surgery that included rotator-cuff cleanup. Siegrist could start the year at Class AAA if he's not ready. Both threw bullpen sessions Tuesday, Feb. 17, and felt much better compared to last season.
