Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that an MRI and CT scan taken Monday on Michael Wacha‘s injured right shoulder showed encouraging results. He says that the Cardinals will be able to begin a throwing program in two weeks and that he could be pitching in games that matter in September.

Wacha was shut down in late June due to a stress reaction to the scapula bone in his throwing shoulder. He’s 5-5 with a 2.79 ERA on the season.

    That’s if there’s games that matter in September, and if we should, this time, take a Cards management pronouncement on medical timetables with a straight face.

      Wonderful point(s) Gadfly. Both of which I immediately considered upon reading this article.
      Personally, I am taking any injury reports from the organization with a crooked face.
      Crooked as can be in fact. I am talking Charlie Hustle kind of crooked!

      Apparently one of the multiple user name (and multiple online device?) thumbs-downing cowardly trolls was running through here earlier this evening.

    I hope I’m not the only one that thinks there’s actually no injury and that this is how the organization is handling the innings limit.

      If Mo is that non-transparent, and thinks we’re that much of stooges, I’m ready to throw up in my mouth.
