Cardinals' Carlos Martinez throws six scoreless in final spring start
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cardinals starting pitcher Carlos Martinez threw very well in his final Grapefruit League start Wednesday against the Mets. The right-hander threw six scoreless innings, allowing three hits (all singles) and one walk. He struck out five in a 5-4 win. 

"He was in a really good place today," manager Mike Matheny said after the outing, per MLB.com. "This was one of those that you just hope they put away and remember whatever it takes to get you back there. That was a good rhythm. That was a good mound presence. That was good preparation. Everything he did, let's repeat it."

Martinez finishes the spring with a 2.86 ERA in six outings (five starts). He allowed just one run over his final three outings (14 innings).

Martinez will make his first start of the season April 11 against the Reds.

Cardinals' John Lackey sharp in minor-league game Wednesday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cardinals starting pitcher John Lackey threw six scoreless innings during a minor-league start Wednesday, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. He allowed two hits and no walks, while striking out seven.

Lackey threw 73 pitches over six innings. He was expected to throw a max of 75 pitches.

"I was happy with the location today but it's a little tough to cut it all the way loose on the back fields," Lackey said. "I feel like there's a little extra gear in there. That will be nice if I locate like that and put a little extra on it." 

Lackey is slated to start the third game of the season next Wednesday against the Cubs.

Cardinals' Garcia starts playing catch, aims to throw off mound soon
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cardinals starting pitcher Jaime Garcia, who is on the 15-day disabled list with left shoulder inflammation, began playing catch Wednesday, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Garcia is aiming to start throwing off a mound next week.

Garcia added he will build up to throwing 80 pitches before he will likely begin a minor-league rehab assignment.

"We're trying to make sure the inflammation is reduced and try to get there as quick and safe as possible," said Garcia, who had thoracic outlet syndrome surgery in July to address a nerve problem affecting his shoulder. "Whatever (the medical staff) has written down, we're just going to take it one day at a time."

Garcia indicated Wednesday the plan was for him to miss the first month of the season coming off surgery.

"Originally, the plan was for me to ready by the end of April or early May," Garcia said. "But by the fact that things were going so well, we moved things ahead a little  bit."

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Cardinals utility infielder Ty Kelly will begin the season in Triple-A to develop his defense more at second base, shortstop and even the outfielder, reports MLB.com.

Kelly will also see some time as the emergency catcher.

"Just be a guy who uses all those gloves he's toting around all the time," manager Mike Matheny said.

Kelly is hitting .194 this spring with a double and a triple in 36 plate appearances.
