Player Notes
Adam Wainwright (abdomen) threw over 30 pitches in a bullpen session Monday in Cardinals camp.

Advice: Wainwright mixed in a variety of pitches and drew positive reviews from onlookers. It was his first time on a mound since being diagnosed last week with an abdominal strain. "His arm feels good," manager Mike Matheny told reporters after the workout. "It’s in a great slot. Everything’s coming out nice, he’s just got to stay on top of it." The veteran right-hander is on track to start for the Cardinals on Opening Night against the Cubs.

Adam Wainwright (abdomen) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Monday in Cardinals camp.

Advice: Wainwright suffered an abdominal strain last week while placing a 45 lb. weight back on a rack at the Cardinals' spring training complex. He expects to make his Grapefruit League debut by mid-March and is still a possibility for the club's Opening Night start at Wrigley Field. The abdominal discomfort doesn't really affect his throwing motion.

Adam Wainwright (abdomen) expects to make his Grapefruit League debut within the next 2-3 weeks.

Advice: Wainwright has been diagnosed with a minor abdominal strain and has been shut down for a few days. It was the best-case scenario, though, and he should be fine for Opening Day as long as he doesn't have a setback. "The good thing is it doesn’t hurt so I can continue to throw off the mound and face hitters," Wainwright said. "I can throw live BP and just won’t field my position."

Adam Wainwright has been diagnosed with an abdominal strain and will rest for the next 4-5 days.

Advice: Wainwright felt some discomfort in his abdomen earlier this week while placing a 45 lb. weight back on a rack at the Cardinals' spring training complex in Jupiter, Florida and flew back to St. Louis on Thursday to meet with a specialist. Cardinals GM John Mozeliak said the diagnosis of a strain is the "best news we could have gotten." Wainwright's elbow is the bigger concern heading into the 2015 regular season, but he can still be penciled in as the team's Opening Day starter.

Adam Wainwright said Wednesday that he's optimistic about the prognosis of his abdominal injury.

Advice: "Anything I say about it would just be speculation, I don’t think it’s very serious at all," Wainwright said. "I think we’re probably going up there and probably not going to see much of anything at all, but I don’t know that." Wainwright injured himself placing a weight back on a rack while working out. He's certainly saying the right things, but we'll know something closer to the truth Thursday after the right-hander visits a specialist in St. Louis.

Adam Wainwright is dealing with abdominal pain and will fly to St. Louis on Thursday to see a specialist.

Advice: The pain has limited his workouts, but not his ability to throw. Still, the Cardinals want to know what their ace is dealing with. We should have a better idea about his status later this week. The Cardinals will have to cross their fingers for now.
