Cardinals shortstop Brendan Ryan made his spring debut Saturday against the Mets, batting second in the lineup and finishing 2-for-3 with a run scored. He underwent a minor wrist procedure in early February and was limited to drills for the first few weeks of spring training. Now healthy, he’s hoping to fit in about 50 at-bats to get warmed up for the start of the regular season. Ryan, 27, was a pleasant surprise for the Cards last year, hitting .292/.340/.400 and flashing one of the league’s strongest gloves at short.
