Cardinals' Adam Wainwright targeting 2-3 weeks for spring debut
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright is targeting 2-3 weeks before he is able to pitch in a spring game, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Wainwright was diagnosed with an abdominal strain Thursday after heading back to St. Louis for further evaluation.

Wainwright will have 4-5 days of light activity before he can gradually increase his workouts. He will be re-evaluated Monday before the Cardinals decide if he can rejoin the starters’ throwing program.

“The good thing is it doesn’t hurt so I can continue to throw off the mound and face hitters,” Wainwright said. “I can throw live BP and just won’t field my position.”

With his current timetable and barring setback, Wainwright could make four starts during spring training. 

“Everybody was saying that you need to scale back your innings in spring training,” Wainwright said. “God just naturally found a way to make that happen without ticking me off. ‘OK, Adam, you don’t want to have time off? I’ll make you take time off.’”

Cards' Adam Wainwright prescribed two weeks rest for abdominal pain
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

After being examined Thursday in St. Louis for lower abdominal soreness, Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright won't need surgery and was only prescribed two weeks rest, according to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

"Based on all the different studies and what the doctor saw, (the doctor) feels this probably is the best news you could have gotten," general manager John Mozeliak said.

Wainwright was already on a delayed throwing schedule before injuring himself while replacing a 45-pound weight during a workout session. The right-hander can still throw despite the discomfort, but his workout will be limited and his throwing schedule will modified moving forward.

"If all goes well, he should be full-go probably in a couple of weeks," Mozeliak said.

Wainwright, 33, posted a 2.38 ERA over 227 innings in 2014 before having surgery to trim cartilage in his throwing elbow in October.

Cardinals' Wainwright calls abdominal exam 'precautionary'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright, who will be examined Thursday in St. Louis for lower abdominal soreness, said Wednesday he hurt himself while replacing a 45-pound weight during a workout session, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

"It was a very minor deal," Wainwright said. "I did it at the beginning of my workout. I felt a little twinge and didn't even think anything of it and finished my workout another 45 minutes in there.

"I don't think it's very serious at all. (Doctors) are probably not going to see much of anything at all but I don't know that, so I don't want to be answering 100 questions about it without really knowing what's going on."

Wainwright called the exam "strictly precautionary."

"I could go out there and throw a bullpen perfectly fine right now," he said. "It does not hurt to throw at all. The only time it hurts when I'm seemingly running. Maybe, I just pitch this year and don't anybody hit the ball.

"That's what's so frustrating about it. I'm walking around and doing all these things. But, as the symptoms have gone down, it's gotten better and better. I don't foresee this being a problem but I just don't know. It's kind of in that weird area down there."

Cardinals' Wainwright to visit a specialist to examine abdominal pain
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright is experiencing abdominal pain, which has limited his workouts in camp. The right-hander, who was already on a delayed throwing schedule, is expected to fly back to St. Louis to visit a specialist and the Cardinals are expected to know if he'll miss any playing time by Thursday, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Wainwright underwent surgery to trim cartilage in his throwing elbow in October, and was careful to point out that he's not experiencing any soreness or pain in his arm, and the abdominal issue did not limit his ability to throw in camp.

General manager John Mozeliak confirmed the injury and told the paper he isn't too concerned with Wainwright's status moving forward.

"It shouldn't effect him at that point, or any more beyond that point," Mozeliak said. "I would say (the level of concern) is a medium at this point."

Wainwright, 33, posted a 2.38 ERA over 227 innings in 2014 before surgery.

Cardinals' Wainwright: 'Worst pain I've ever had pitching was last year'
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright said he was in the most pain of his career last season, according to FoxSports.com.

"The worst pain I've ever had pitching was last year every start I had the second half," Wainwright said. Despite the pain, Wainwright continued pitching, and his numbers suffered. While he still posted a solid 3.24 ERA in the second half, Wainwright saw his strikeout rate drop and his walk rate climb as the season progressed. Following the season, Wainwright had offseason elbow surgery to repair the issue.

The 33-year-old posted a 2.38 ERA over 227 innings last year. He's said he feels great during camp, and doesn't expect to be limited this season.
