|Jake Westbrook to throw off mound|
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(5/20/13) Cardinals pitcher Jake Westbrook (elbow) plans on throwing off a mound Tuesday, MLB.com reports. The news comes after Westbrook made 25 throws off flat ground from 60 feet Sunday.
Westbrook will likely need a rehab outing or two before the Cardinals consider adding him to the rotation. He'll likely be back in early June.

(5/19/13) Cardinals starter Jake Westbrook took about 25 throws from 60 feet Sunday and said he felt good, ESPN St. Louis reports.
Westbrook has been dealing with scar tissue buildup in his elbow. He is expected to miss at least two more starts, if not more, if a cortisone shot doesn't break up the scar tissue.
|Scar tissue still an issue for Jake Westbrook|
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(5/17/13) Cardinals starter Jake Westbrook, on the 15-day disabled list, underwent an MRI, which revealed that scar tissue around his elbow is still an issue, according to MLB.com.
Westbrook received a shot in his arm Thursday to try and break up that scar tissue. He will not be able to resume throwing until at least Sunday, which will cause him to miss at least three starts.
|Jake Westbrook aiming to throw Friday|
|by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com|
(5/15/13) Cardinals starter Jake Westbrook told MLB.com on Wednesday that he hopes to resume throwing on Friday. The right-hander has reported a slight improvement in his injured elbow but said more will be known once he starts his throwing program.
Westbrook is 2-1 with a 1.62 ERA in his six starts this season.
|Cardinals place Jake Westbrook on 15-day DL|
|by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com|
(5/12/13) The Cardinals have placed starter Jake Westbrook on the 15-day disabled list due to elbow inflammation, KMOX St. Louis reports.
The Cardinals say the move is precautionary and that the club would prefer to give Westbrook time to rest the elbow now and avoid further injury later. The club has recalled John Gast from Triple-A Memphis to take his place on the roster.
|By now, you should know what Jake Westbrook is capable of doing for your Fantasy team. The 35-year-old has been around since 2000 and has delivered more or less the same mediocre numbers since 2003. The Cardinals like him because he's an assured 180-210 innings every year (he fell a little short in 2012 because of a late-season oblique injury), but in terms of actual production, he just doesn't bring much to the table. At his best, he'll keep his ERA below 4.00 and his WHIP below 1.40, but with few strikeouts and a whole heaping helping of hits. Though he may be worth using as a matchups type at some point in 2013, Westbrook is simply too boring to draft in standard mixed leagues. And who knows? With youngsters like Shelby Miller, Joe Kelly and Trevor Rosenthal waiting in the wings, the Cardinals may ultimately decide he's too boring to keep in the starting rotation. (Updated 11/30/12)|
