Jaime Garcia (shoulder) throwing off mound
Jaime Garcia (shoulder) has resumed throwing off a mound.Advice
: He threw a bullpen session Sunday and will throw another one Wednesday. Assuming he recovers well, he'll then throw live batting practice on Friday. Garcia had a setback with his pitching shoulder at the end of spring training, but the Cardinals consider it a stamina issue more than anything else, so the goal is for the lefty to get stretched out without tiring. "As you saw in spring training, when Jaime was throwing, he seemed to do very well when he was in that 30-to-40 pitch range," general manager John Mozeliak said. "But when that started to expand, that's when things got a little more difficult for him.
He could certainly be a long man. But I think his goal is still to get back and be a starter, and I think that's how he wants us to push him." Rotoworld.com
