"Right now, that's definitely where we're going, and we want him just thinking about his next start, not about all this other stuff."

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.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners, feel free to insert Westbrook if you normally would. He faces the Miami Marlins in his first game back.

St. Louis Cardinals pitching coach Derek Lindquist said none of the starting pitchers coming to camp will be on any restrictions this spring. SP Adam Wainwright threw a bullpen session Thursday, Feb. 7, the fifth or sixth time he's done so this offseason. SP Jaime Garcia (shoulder) threw off flat ground, and he's thrown off a mound five times already in the last few weeks. He'll throw a bullpen session as early as Friday, Feb. 8. "Just based on seeing him throw one time he looks healthy, he's in good shape," Lilliquist said of Garcia. "In talking to him, mentally he's in a good spot. He's excited about the year moving forward and looks to make every start every fifth day." Ps Trevor Rosenthal, Eric Fornataro, Tyler Lyons and Sam Freeman all threw bullpen sessions as well Thursday.
