Updating previous reports, St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright (elbow) began his offseason throwing program last week and isn't expected to have restrictions in spring training. Wainwright said his elbow was in such discomfort late last season he was unable to open jars at home. He relied on cutters and curveballs much more late last season because he was unable to get full extension of his arm. Wainwright said hitting Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig in Game 1 of the National League Division Series was an example of his lost command. The team has discussed being vigilant with Wainwright's innings in 2015 after he led the majors with 520 innings since 2013.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright may have his workouts and/or innings reduced before the 2015 season, as the team fears this may be contributing to his late-season struggles. "Clearly in Adam's case being a veteran and his status on the team, we haven't really had to pull the reins on him as much as we have with younger pitchers. But having said that, given everything he has done over the last couple years and taking that aggregate sense, yes, we probably do need to look at that this offseason," general manager John Mozeliak said.
