St. Louis Cardinals
The Stl Cardinals have lost pitcher Jaime Garcia for the season because of a torn labrum in his left shoulder. The injury will require surgery and cost him the rest of 2013.
The lefty starter originally felt pain in his shoulder during a start in the 2012 National League Divisional Series against the Washington Nationals. He pitched two innings before being pulled from the start. Instead of having surgery following the first issue, Garcia chose to rehab and see where things went.
Things went south. Dr. James Andrews saw Garcia after the second issue, and was surprised Garcia pitched so well up to this point. What one has to be surprised about is if Garcia will ever be himself again.
Shoulder injuries and Stl Cardinals pitchers have been more common than one would like to admit. Most recently, Mark Mulder suffered from rotator cuff problems from 2006-2008. Mulder was supposed to help shore up the starting rotation, but never lived up to his potential after a great run with Oakland. ...

The Cardinals have lost Jamie Garcia for the season. They're in the process of losing Jake Westbrook for way longer than the '2 starts' that we were told. And Shelby Miller can't be trusted to work out of his own jams.
None of this was going on 2 weeks ago. So what the...?
Wait, what's that? Sports Illustrated sent someone to cover the Cardinals historically...
St. Louis Cardinals right-handed starting pitcher Jaime Garcia will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.
The procedure has been recommended by Dr. James Andrews, as he confirmed the original diagnosis of a small tear in Garcia's labrum. Heyman adds that the right-hander is said to have what was described as a 30- to 40-percent tear...
Beset by injuries, the Cardinals have had to turn to the farm system early and often this year.
Normally, when you're dealing with young and unproven players, the results are at best mixed. However, so far the Cardinals rookies have come through. The latest example being Tyler Lyons, who started for the Cardinals last night and hurled 7 innings while allowing only 1 run...
St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia was off to a pretty good start in 2013, unfortunately his 2013 season is ending. Garcia was diagnosed with a 30-40% tear in his shoulder. Dr. James Andrews made the diagnosis and recommended the surgery he however won’t be performing it that will fall to the team doctors.
Dr. James Andrews recommended the surgery, confirming the original...
After learning that Jaime Garcia was going to be out for the remainder of the season after he undergoes shoulder surgery later this week, the St. Louis Cardinals were hoping for some good news from their other starter who is on the disabled list, Jake Westbrook.
Westbrook, who is 2-1 with a 1.62 ERA in six starts this season, has been on the disabled list since May 9 with scar...
What a difference seven weeks has made. Out of spring training, the St. Louis Cardinals had a solid pitching staff that was exciting to watch. What fans couldn't have known at that time was how impressive of a performance they were about to put up. Arguably that performance peaked when Shelby Miller and Adam Wainwright posted back to back shutouts - with one hit and two hits...
If injuries are any indication of a team's ability to win, the St. Louis Cardinals should be in the basement of the National League Central. Instead, they are banging out the best record in baseball with four starting pitchers on the DL and more injuries continuing to pile up. David Freese, one of the main pieces of the team's offense sat out last night for the third...
Adam Wainwright is back to "ace" form. (Credit)
Obtaining an overall ace in the Major Leagues is not an easy task. Although the majority of teams have an ace of their staff, an overall ace (something I came up with approximately two seconds ago) is a pitcher that would be an ace on over half of the teams in the MLB.
That does not sound like much, but with an overall ace...
Adam Wainwright got a nice, loud ovation from the large contingent of St. Louis Cardinals fans behind the third-base dugout as he walked off the mound with an eight-run lead with one out in the bottom of the eighth inning.
It was his first victory at Petco Park, yet it almost had the feel of being at home.
''That was an awesome, awesome Cardinal reaction today,''...

On Friday, the St. Louis Cardinals made aggressive roster moves to push younger prospects ahead of older veterans on the roster of the first-place Triple-A Memphis Redbirds.
SAN DIEGO (AP) -- The San Diego Padres have had to deal with some of the best pitchers in the NL lately, though they don't appear to be facing as tough of a challenge in their series finale against the St. Louis Cardinals.
The Padres will try for their fourth win in five games when Tyler Lyons makes his major league debut for the visiting Cardinals on Wednesday night.
Tylor Lyons punked the San Diego Padres last night to record his first major league win (and hit).
It was a performance to behold, but if you thought it was due to talent, luck or other forces unknown, you'd be wrong. It'd be because former ESPNer and current CBSer Doug Gottlieb was in the stands wearing enough Cardinals gear to make the Cardinal Cowboy blush.
