News
Cardinals pitcher Sam Freeman tossed a scoreless inning in Wednesday's 1-0 win against the Nationals, and manager Mike Matheny indicated after the outing that it was Freeman's best outing of the spring, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

"That was his best outing of the year," Matheny said. "He was getting ahead in the count and making good, tough pitches when he had to. He had the swing-and-miss split going today. It was a good day. It was his best outing and it was a good time for it."

Freeman, who would have to pass through waivers to be sent to the minors, remains a longshot to win a bullpen spot this spring. He has posted a 3.60 ERA and 3:5 K:BB ratio in five spring innings.

Injuries
Quadriceps - Out until at least late March (Updated - 3/23/15)
News
Cardinals outfielder Thomas Pham, considered the club's No. 20 prospect by MLB.com, is running out of time to secure a big-league bench spot because of his injury, per MLB.com. Pham has been sidelined since March 13 due to a left quad strain. He has been limited in his rehab due to continued discomfort.

"[The medical staff] still has got reservations with him," manager Mike Matheny said. "He says he's still feeling something, so we have to go slow. I don't think he's that far away. It's just another hurdle or so to get past."

News
Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia threw 80 pitches in five "innings" of work in a simulated game Tuesday, with the team keeping him on the mound even after he recorded three outs in an inning to push his pitch count and test his shoulder, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

"I think in those 80 pitches he might have recorded 48 outs," manager Mike Matheny said.

Garcia threw in the simulated game Tuesday to keep him on track to open the season as the team's fifth starter if the Cardinals decide he doesn't need extended work in spring training once the season begins. He was initially expected to open the season on the disabled list but could begin the season in the rotation if the team selects him as the winner of the fifth-starter competition and believes he's ready to roll at the start of spring.

Garcia said after Tuesday's outing that he's further removed from concern with the surgically-repaired shoulder with each passing day.

"I feel better and better each time out," Garcia said.

News
Cardinals pitcher Kevin Siegrist allowed two stolen bases in his inning of work Thursday while surrendering one earned run. He's made mechanical adjustments this spring to try and quicken his delivery, MLB.com reports.

"He got a little longer today for some reason," manager Mike Matheny said. "I don't know if he's trying to put a little more [velocity] on it or exactly what it is. I think he was thinking a little more about his stuff. Those are things that we hadn't seen much from him this spring."

The run was the first Siegrist has allowed in six innings this spring, and he's racked up seven strikeouts while issuing only one walk.

Cardinals starting pitcher Michael Wacha tossed 5 2/3 scoreless innings Wednesday and was engaged in quite the pitcher's duel with Nationals starting pitcher Max Scherzer, who struck out nine over six scoreless innings.

Wacha allowed four hits and one walk, while striking out four. He lowered his spring ERA to 1.76 in his fourth spring start.

"I was happy with it," Wacha said of his performance. "[I'm] just continuing to go out there and working on the pitches and strikes, fastball command, down in the zone. Hopefully, I'm on the right track going forward from here."

News
Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez gave up just one run on five hits in five innings of work Friday against the Nationals. Martinez, who is competing for the final spot in St. Louis' starting rotation, has allowed just seven runs in 16 innings of work.

"I've been working hard," Martinez said through an interpreter to MLB.com. "Some of the outings haven't gone as good as I've wanted to, but I'm just trying to learn from that and get better every day."

Martinez is still focused on earning a starting spot.

"Right now I'm fighting to be a starter," Martinez said. "But if they call me into the bullpen I'm going to be ready for the team. I just want to help the team win, and I'm going to be ready when my name gets called."

News
Making his second spring training appearance, Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright received the loss during Thursday's game against the Marlins.

Wainwright started the game and threw 3 1/2 innings, but surrendered six hits for four runs. He struck out two batters and walked one. He also gave up a solo home run to Giancarlo Stanton.

Despite his struggles during the game, Wainwright said he was encouraged with how the start ended, reports MLB.com.

"I was driving the ball for the first time all spring," Wainwright said. "It was the best I've felt all spring. I know it's not against hitters, but it translates for me... Those [extra pitches] were very productive. I went from being kind of frustrated by the way I pitched to when I left that cage thinking, 'I'm ready for next time."

Wainwright will make his final spring start in five days and said he'll treat as a regular-season game.

"There were plenty of times today where I probably would have normally thrown a cutter or a hook, and I threw a changeup or a fastball," Wainwright said. "In my next bullpen session, I'll put a little more into it. Then in a game, I'll go into it like a normal regular-season game."

John Lackey pitched seven innings, the longest of any Cardinals starter so far this season. 

Lackey allowed one run on six hits and didn't walk a batter, throwing 84 pitches. 

"Throwing seven innings, that was probably a little bit further than I thought I'd go today with the pitch count," said Lackey, per MLB.com's Jennifer Langosch. "But they were pretty aggressive, and I was throwing a lot of strikes. It worked out pretty good."

Lackey had his catcher call the game as if it were a regular season game, and his performance indicates that he's ready for the season to begin.

"That's what it looked like," coach David Bell said. "It looked like he was making all his pitches. The velocity was there. He probably had a little more in the tank, which is a good thing."
