Michael Wacha has been scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday night against the Nationals.

Tyler Lyons is going to take the hill instead. No word yet on the reason for bumping Wacha, but it could be similar to the Cardinals' decision to skip Carlos Martinez on Tuesday. That was more of a workload protection thing here in early September, though the Cardinals claimed publicly that Martinez had a sore back. Wacha was spotted flying model planes in the Busch Stadium outfield on Wednesday afternoon. All is well.

Jorge Soler (oblique) hopes to resume swinging a bat on Friday.

George Springer (wrist) will be activated from the disabled list as soon as Friday.

He's been sidelined since early July with a fractured right wrist.
