News

Wainwright (elbow) has been working out and is readying his body to pitch again since being placed on the 60-day disabled list May 17, but has yet to receive clearance to begin a throwing program, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Impact

Despite having yet to progress to throwing off flat ground, Wainwright said that he expects to be ready to pitch by the time he's eligible to return from the DL, which would fall around the All-Star break. As part of his recovery process, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports that Wainwright had a platelet-rich-plasma injection in his right elbow earlier in the week. In order to have a realistic chance at being activated by mid-July, Wainwright will probably have to initiate a throwing program by the final week of June, since multiple rehab starts would likely be on the docket for the veteran right-hander. Prior to being shut down by the elbow injury, Wainwright had all four of his appearances out of the St. Louis rotation, but it seems likely that he'll have to settle for a bullpen role if all of the Cardinals' current starters are healthy by that time he's ready to return.
