Michael Wacha said that he felt no pain in his arm during Wednesday's bullpen.
Wacha has been throwing side sessions this month and is hoping that he has built up enough strength that the recurring shoulder injuries which have bit him in the past are just that, a thing of the past. Said the 25-year-old right-hander, "My arm feels like it's able to move freely and without any pain, and it's working the right way. I'm really happy with the way it's going, the way I'm bouncing back and recovering." With top prospect Alex Reyes set to undergo Tommy John surgery, Wacha's health entering the 2017 campaign is going to be crucial for the Cards. Club general manager John Mozeliak indicated on Tuesday that so long as Wacha can maintain his health, he will likely be in the rotation come April. In 138 innings this past season, he held a disappointing 5.09 ERA. Feb 15 - 4:49 PM
