Latest News
Michael Wacha throws 30-pitch bullpen session Saturday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/16/14) Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha threw 30 pitches in a bullpen session Saturday, St. Louis Baseball Weekly reports.

"I don’t know what percentage it was, but it wasn’t full speed or anywhere near it," said Wacha. "It was just first time back on the mound, getting a feel for the mound and the mechanics, as well."

Wacha, who threw fastballs and changeups in the session, is scheduled for a medical evaluation Monday. His next step will likely be determined by that doctor's visit, but he's likely in line for a few more bullpen sessions before potentially going out on a rehab assignment.

Is that stashed superstar really worth the wait?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/12/14) So you're at the point, with the season winding down, where you have to win at all costs. Seems straightforward enough. The only problem is your bench is overflowing with players you can't actually use -- ones that are injured but too valuable to drop, like Brett Lawrie, Brandon Phillips, Adam Eaton, Michael Wacha, Paul Goldschmidt, Yadier Molina, Ryan Zimmerman, Joey Votto, Carlos Gonzalez or Masahiro Tanaka.

Or maybe your albatross isn't injured but just doesn't inspire much confidence right now, like Pedro Alvarez, Justin Verlander or Mike Minor.

I've got news for you: This late in the year, when winning is paramount, you can consider dropping them. Granted, it shouldn't be the goal because the competition can only benefit from whatever you forfeit, but sometimes, it's your only choice.

I break it down player-by-player in my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, so if you could a little assistance with that season-shifting dilemma, be sure to check out.

Michael Wacha might throw off a mound after next MRI
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/10/14) Cardinals starting pitcher Michael Wacha (shoulder) has had no setbacks in the early stages of his return-to-pitching program, according to MLB.com. Wacha has not yet progressed to throwing off a mound, but it might happen after he undergoes another MRI Aug. 18.
MIchael Wacha to resume throwing Tuesday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/5/14) Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha has been cleared to begin throwing, after an MRI taken on his right shoulder showed considerable signs of healing since he was shut down.

Wacha had the MRI taken Monday, and is scheduled for a follow-up in two weeks to determine how his shoulder is responding to the increase in activity. Wacha has been sidelined since June 17 due to a stress reaction in the right shoulder, and general manager John Mozeliak told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch he thinks Wacha might be able to pitch again this year.

"At the end of the day, it's whether you do or you don't," said Mozeliak. "But 'optimism' is a fair word right now."

Michael Wacha to undergo MRI Monday, could throw soon
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/30/14) Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha will undergo an MRI on his injured shoulder Monday, and if the tests go how the team expects, he'll begin a throwing program soon after, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Wacha is eyeing a return to the team in September, and while he could come back as a reliever, general manager John Mozeliak "has a feeling" he'll return as a starter. His role for the remainder of the season will be determined by whatever the team believes is best for his long-term health.
