    Jaime Garcia had his sore shoulder examined by the Cardinals team doctor and Dr. James Andrews, and they both agreed: No new structural damage. Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports that Garcia has been diagnosed with inflammation and got a cortisone shot, which means no throwing for at least a little while. General manager John Mozeliak…

    It’s going to be a somber plane ride back to St. Louis for the Cardinals following Wednesday night’s World Series ouster at Fenway Park, but these birds will be playing on big stages for years and years to come. There may not be a team in baseball that is better-poised for an extended run of…

  7. Allen Craig to take batting practice against Jaime Garcia

    Oct 17, 2013, 2:20 PM EDT

    Allen Craig

    If the Cardinals get past the Dodgers they’re still holding out some hope that Allen Craig can be ready for the World Series, so Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that Craig will take batting practice against teammate Jaime Garcia tomorrow. Garcia is rehabbing after shoulder surgery, so his raw stuff probably…

  8. Cardinals’ injuries taking a toll with elimination near

    Justin Morneau, Matt Adams

    In some ways, the Cardinals are better off than most. They don’t lose much at first base with Matt Adams filling in for Allen Craig, and they’re still fine in the ninth since Trevor Rosenthal replaced the sore-shouldered Edward Mujica in the closer’s role. But the truth is that both injuries played huge roles in…

  9. Jaime Garcia close to throwing again after surgery

    Aug 8, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Jaime Garcia is out for the season following May shoulder surgery, but the Cardinals left-hander has progressed enough in his recovery to resume throwing soon.

    As we enter the third month of the season, the herd has been thinned and we have a good idea which pitchers are for real and which were pretenders. With seven innings of shutout ball against the Giants this afternoon, Cardinals starter Shelby Miller continues to establish himself as one of baseball’s premier arms. The…

    Making official what was expected, the Cardinals announced that they will call up top prospect Michael Wacha to start Thursday against the Royals. Wacha was the 19th overall pick in last year’s draft out of Texas A&M and has been incredibly good in the minors with a 1.71 ERA and 74/19 K/BB ratio in 74…

    The Cardinals have lost Jaime Garcia, Jake Westbrook and John Gast in the past few weeks to arm injuries, and they’re having to take drastic measures to fill all of those rotation openings. This next move might be the most drastic of all. According to MLB.com’s Jenifer Langosch, right-hander Michael Wacha — the 18th overall…

This was the third start of the 24-year-old’s young career. He had allowed…

  15. Jaime Garcia needs shoulder surgery

    May 22, 2013, 12:46 PM EDT

    Jaime Garcia, Cameron Maybin

    When the Cardinals placed left-hander Jaime Garcia on the disabled list last week they feared that he’d need shoulder surgery and sure enough Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that he’ll go under the knife. Garcia has a long history of arm problems and the possibility of shoulder surgery has been looming since last year, when…

    May 19, 2013, 7:55 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v St. Louis Cardinals

    Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia had two uncharacteristically bad starts against the Rockies and Brewers recently, surrendering five and six runs, respectively.

  18. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    May 1, 2013, 6:52 AM EDT

    Washington Nationals v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 8, Nationals 1: That’s nine straight wins by the Braves over the Nats dating back to last season. Someone should ask Danny Espinosa if he’s impressed by the Braves yet. Tim Hudson notched his 200th career win. In pretty grand style, too: he homered and doubled in addition to pitching seven strong innings. Indians…

  19. Ruben Amaro can’t believe the Phillies aren’t drawing walks

    Apr 19, 2013, 7:45 PM EDT

    Charlie Manuel, Ruben Amaro, Jr.

    The Phillies have gone four consecutive games without drawing a walk (that streak ended tonight when Jaime Garcia walked Chase Utley), and they’re also on a four-game losing streak. Coincidence? They haven’t scored more than three runs in a game since April 10 (another streak that has ended tonight). Though season previews for the team…

  20. Cardinals now embracing elevation

    Apr 14, 2013, 11:15 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v St. Louis Cardinals

    The Cardinals have, for a while, been known as the ground ball team. Many a pitcher has joined the pitching staff, told to induce grounders, and enjoyed immense success as a result. Joel Pineiro is one example; Jake Westbrook and Jaime Garcia others. Since 2009, the Cardinals have ranked second, first, first, and and third…

    Now that Rafael Furcal is done for the season following Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery, it’s not surprising to hear that the Cardinals are asking around about shortstops.

  23. Jaime Garcia throws two innings in comeback from shoulder injury

    Feb 27, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Jaime Garcia Getty

    As soon as Jaime Garcia opted for rest and rehab instead of surgery there were questions about how his shoulder would hold up this season, but the Cardinals left-hander took a big step in his recovery yesterday. Garcia tossed two shutout innings against the Red Sox and afterward told Derrick Goold of the St. Louis…

  24. Cardinals’ lack of action could be their undoing

    Feb 21, 2013, 11:59 PM EDT

    Mike Matheny, Chris Carpenter

    It’s hard to blame the Cardinals for staying the course. Even with free agents Kyle Lohse and Lance Berkman set to depart, St. Louis ended 2012 with a roster that already looked like a winner entering 2013: Rotation: Adam Wainwright, Chris Carpenter, Jaime Garcia, Lance Lynn, Jake Westbrook, Shelby Miller, Joe Kelly, Trevor Rosenthal Bullpen:…

    kyle lohse getty

    Today’s news that Chris Carpenter is unlikely to pitch in 2013 and may end up retiring seemingly opens the door for the Cardinals to bring back Kyle Lohse. After all, Lohse remains unsigned as the draft pick compensation attached to his free agency has scared teams off and the Cardinals wouldn’t have to forfeit a…
