Player Notes
Michael Wacha (shoulder) has been cleared to make his first rehab start Sunday at Double-A Springfield.

Advice: Wacha tossed a successful simulated game on Wednesday afternoon and is now ready to face live-game competition. The 23-year-old right-hander could be back in the Cardinals' starting rotation around the middle of September. He has been out since June 22 because of a stress reaction in his throwing shoulder.

Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said Wednesday that Michael Wacha (shoulder) could begin a minor league rehab assignment within two weeks.

Advice: Wacha has progressed to throwing bullpen sessions and Cardinals manager Mike Matheny noted earlier this week that the workouts so far have "looked real effortless." The young starter has been on the shelf since June because of a stress reaction in his right shoulder. He's on track to rejoin the Cards around mid-September, though there are still many more hurdles to clear.
