Player Notes
Jaime Garcia (shoulder) faced live hitters for the first time on Friday but is still at least six weeks away from a potential return to the Cardinals.

Advice: Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak indicated that Garcia's goal is to come back as a starting pitcher, but likened his progress to this point as being at the beginning of spring training. The Cardinals will obviously play things cautiously in his recovery, so fantasy owners shouldn't count on anything out of the left-hander until around midseason.

Jaime Garcia (shoulder) has resumed throwing off a mound.

Advice: He threw a bullpen session Sunday and will throw another one Wednesday. Assuming he recovers well, he'll then throw live batting practice on Friday. Garcia had a setback with his pitching shoulder at the end of spring training, but the Cardinals consider it a stamina issue more than anything else, so the goal is for the lefty to get stretched out without tiring. "As you saw in spring training, when Jaime was throwing, he seemed to do very well when he was in that 30-to-40 pitch range," general manager John Mozeliak said. "But when that started to expand, that's when things got a little more difficult for him. … He could certainly be a long man. But I think his goal is still to get back and be a starter, and I think that's how he wants us to push him."
