      Cardinals pitcher John Gast finally feels 100 percent recovered after shoulder surgery, according to Gast had the surgery back in 2013, but said he didn't feel like he was all the way back when he returned to pitch last season. "All around, I felt off," Gast said. "The whole year was tough with every pitch, really." This spring, though, things seem to be much better. Gast believes his velocity is back to normal, and said his pitches have "more life than last year." Gast will likely open the season in the minors, but general manager John Mozeliak believes he can pitch in the big leagues. "I think he's capable of pitching in the big leagues," Mozeliak said. "Now it's going out and showing that he has the durability to compete every fifth day."
