Cardinals | Michael Wacha throws

Wed, 06 Aug 2014 11:01:01 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha (shoulder) threw a pain-free light throwing session Tuesday, Aug. 5. "I don't feel any pain in the shoulder or anything like that," Wacha said. "It definitely feels strong. It feels alive, really." The team remains optimistic that Wacha can return to pitch this year.

Cardinals | Optimistic about Michael Wacha

Tue, 05 Aug 2014 10:13:50 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha (shoulder) has a good chance of returning to pitch this season, according to the club. General manager John Mozeliak said Wacha's most recent MRI exam showed a lot of healing in his arm, and the inflammation appears to be down.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously, continue to stash Wacha everywhere, until now. If he has another setback, though, that'll likely be game over for the rest of his season. With a throwing program and a minor league rehab assignment, he could be ready sometime in September.
