Player Notes
Michael Wacha (shoulder) faced live hitters Wednesday for the first time this spring.

Advice: "Obviously, nobody’s command is what it’s going to be, but it was a really good day for Michael," said Cardinals pitching coach Derek Lilliquist. Wacha was limited to 19 starts in 2014 due to a stress reaction in his right shoulder and carries lingering question marks into the 2015 campaign. But he'll be hugely valuable if he is indeed over that injury. The 23-year-old boasts a 3.04 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and 159/52 K/BB ratio in 171 2/3 major league innings.
