Player Notes
Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch said on 920 AM in St. Louis that the schedule currently points to Jaime Garcia beginning the season as the fifth starter.

Advice: Nothing is official yet, but Garcia is healthy and has posted a 3.86 ERA and 13/3 K/BB ratio in 9 1/3 innings across three starts this spring. The Cardinals had him throw an 80-pitch simulated game on Tuesday to keep him in line for the second series of the season or perhaps soon after. He's competing with Marco Gonzales and Carlos Martinez for the fifth spot in the rotation.

Jaime Garcia fanned seven Mets while allowing two runs in four innings on Thursday.

Advice: The strikeouts are certainly nice, but Garcia did up five hits, including a Wilmer Flores homer. Even though Marco Gonzales has a better ERA than both, it will probably come down to Garcia and Carlos Martinez for the fifth spot in the Cardinals' rotation. Martinez opened the spring as the favorite and probably still is, though it seems like a waste to put Garcia in the pen while he's healthy.
