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.
