ST. LOUIS -- Nothing too earth-shattering on the injury update front so we'll keep it short and sweet.
* Carlos Beltran (bone spurs) will progress to tee and toss with hitting coach Kevin Long on Thursday.
* Shawn Kelley (back) will throw a bullpen on Friday.
* Michael Pineda (upper back) will pitch an intrasquad game on Sunday.
* Mark Teixeira is off again Wednesday and will see his doctor on Thursday, but he has been told that it is a "99 percent" chance that the injury to his wrist is just inflammation. Sounds like he will return on Friday.
