News
Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia faced live hitters on Friday for the first time since March 24. Garcia, who has battled shoulder inflammation, pitched batting practice. 

Garcia said he "felt good" after the session, per MLB.com, but GM John Mozeliak said he's likely six weeks away from rejoining the team. Mozeliak compared the session to one a pitcher would throw in the second week of spring training. 

Mozeliak said the Cardinals are still looking at Garcia as a starter, once he returns to the team.

Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina went 2 for 4 with an RBI in his team's 4-0 win over the Brewers Thursday.

Molina opened the season 0 for 10 but has racked up eight hits and 19 at-bats over his last five games.

"When you play every day, you're going to get that timing back," Molina said after Thursday's game, per MLB.com. "Right now, I'm in that process. It's hard to play like that [with all the off-days], but you've got to get used to it and battle every game to try to do the best you can. When you play every day, it's easy for you to get your timing back."

With the recent hot stretch, Molina has hit .276/.364/.310 in 29 at-bats.

News
Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong committed a pair of errors as the team lost its home opener Monday, and while manager Mike Matheny said he was fine with the infielder taking "ownership" of his misplays, he doesn't want it to affect Wong's style of play, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

"We don’t need him to be a superman out there. He just needs to be the player that he’s continuing to become," Matheny said. "I want him to be aggressive. We’ve been preaching that on the basepaths. We’ve been preaching that at the plate. And most certainly defensively. He’s an exciting player who can make exciting plays. Don’t back off the throttle."

Wong came back Wednesday to strand six runners while going 0 for 4 at the plate, but he didn't make any miscues in the field.

"Consistency is really the thing that he is going to need," Matheny said. "He’s got plenty of an arm. Turns it as good as anybody at second base. That aggressive nature that he does have means he can cut down a lot of distance on both sides. Those are things not everybody who plays that position has."

Wong has hit .227/.357/.273 with one RBI, one stolen base and five run scored in 22 at-bats.

Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha tossed seven solid innings of work to pick up his second win of the season during Friday's 6-1 win over the Reds.

"Anytime you're going up against a guy like Cueto, you know you're going to have to match zeroes with him," Wacha said, per MLB.com. "That was the mentality going into it."

Over the seven innings, Wacha surrendered five hits and one run, while walking one and striking out four. His lone blemish was a solo home run to Joey Votto.

Despite coming into the game with a 1.42 ERA, Wacha was able to lower it to 1.35. Wacha has yet to allow more than one run in his first two starts of the season and is 2-0. 

His next expected start will be Thursday at Washington.

"It's good to get runs up against a team like that," said Heyward to FOXSports.com. "I feel like they can score runs in a hurry, and it's good not to let them get momentum back the next inning."

Heyward went 1 for 4 and is hitting .227 with three RBI.

Cardinals first baseman Mark Reynolds drew a rare start Thursday and rewarded his manager's decision by going 2 for 4 with a double and an RBI in his team's 4-0 win over the Brewers.

"Great day," manager Mike Matheny said afterward, per MLB.com. "This guy has some thunder in his bat, and it's going to be nice to get him locked in to where we can bring him into a situation where we know the other team isn't really happy about it."

Reynolds was just 1 for 5 for the season coming into Thursday's game.

"I was at a point in my career that I accepted [a part-time role] coming in, trying to win," Reynolds said of his agreeing to a role with little promised playing time. "So far, so good. I'll get some at-bats down the road, stay fresh and be ready to pinch-hit when I need to."

Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez worked six strong innings in St. Louis' 5-2 win over the Reds Saturday. Martinez allowed one run on three hits with four strikeouts in the outing.

His only mistake of the day came in the fifth inning when he allowed a lead off home run to Zack Cozart. He set the next three batters down in order. 

"He seems to have a pretty good feel for the changeup and the breaking ball, to kind of put a little more on, take a little off," manager Mike Matheny said to FOXSports.com. "That's something you don't necessarily teach. It's just a feel."

He will look to keep things rolling Friday against the Brewers.

Back - 15-day DL. Out until at least early May (Updated - 4/19/15)
News
The Cardinals have placed outfielder Randal Grichuck on the 15-day DL with a lower back strain, reports MLB.com. The team will also call up Dean Anna to fill in the roster spot. Grichuck picked up the injury during a work out Friday doing squats and has been unavailable since.

"We're going to have to change the workout from here on out," Grichuk acknowledged. "It wasn't a lot of weight. That's what was the surprising part of it. I was doing two warmup sets, and on the second set, about the fourth rep, I went down, got all the way down and came up about 2-3 inches and I kind of felt it lock out, tighten up, whatever you want to call it. I knew something had happened then."

Grichuck is hitting .200 with one home run and two RBI in 10 at-bats this season.

Cardinals starting pitcher John Lackey threw seven scoreless innings Thursday, leading St. Louis to a 4-0 win against the Brewers. He allowed five hits -- all singles -- and one walk, while striking out eight.

Lackey (1-0) didn't allow his first hit until Gerardo Parra led off the third inning with a single. He put two runners on base in the third, fourth and fifth innings, but he emerged from all three jams unscathed.

He finished his afternoon by retiring the final seven batters he faced. He had three strikeouts in that span.

"He's been here many years, proving he can pitch in this game," catcher Yadier Molina said of Lackey after the game, per MLB.com. "Everything was working for him. He's a pitcher, not a thrower. First-pitch strike, strikeout pitch, slider was good, a lot of strikeouts. He was good."

Lackey is scheduled to make his next start Wednesday at Washington.
