Jaime Garcia unlikely to be ready
JUPITER, Fla. -- St. Louis left-hander Jaime Garcia is unlikely to be ready to pitch at the start of the season, but Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak won't completely rule out the possibility.
Garcia will be returning to the Cardinals' spring training camp after Dr. James Andrews did not find any structural damage in the pitcher's throwing shoulder.
Mozeliak said Wednesday that Garcia will receive a cortisone injection at Andrews' office in Pensacola.
Garcia met with Cardinals' doctors in St. Louis on Monday and with Andrews on Tuesday.
Expected to be the lone left-hander in the Cardinals' rotation, Garcia began feeling soreness in his shoulder early last week. He hasn't thrown since Feb. 18.
