Jake Westbrook made his first rehab start last night, tossing 3.2 innings at Double-A as he comes back from elbow inflammation.

Westbrook allowed one run on six hits, striking out five and walking zero. He threw 60 total pitches and afterward told Chad Thornburg of MLB.com that he “felt pretty good.”

Westbrook indicated that he could return to the Cardinals’ rotation after just one more rehab start, which is expected to be this weekend at Single-A. He’s been on the DL since May 12, but setbacks delayed his timetable.

    This reminds me, I meant to post on the AHT that Oswalt got a win in Tulsa yesterday. Don’t watch the highlights though. The Drillers are so bad, it’s painful to watch. Oswalt looks like he’s pained to be fronting them. Still, he did okay and they won, so that’s progress for him.

    I should start stalking him…

      Shouldn’t you have posted this on ATH?

        I said I meant to. I forgot. :(

      Just for the record…I thinks its cute that you make it a point of pointing out when you listen to the game on the radio. I mean that in a good way. I would expect no less.
