ST. LOUIS (AP) Jon Jay will undergo left wrist surgery later this week, the lone major medical issue facing the St. Louis Cardinals coming off a fourth straight NL Championship Series.
MRI exams on Adam Wainwright's sore elbow and Michael Wacha's shoulder both came back clean, and the team anticipates they'll be 100 percent for spring training. Those two and six-time All-Star catcher Yadier Molina, who missed seven weeks with a torn thumb ligament and had his postseason cut short by an oblique injury, are expected to benefit most from rest.
General manager John Mozeliak said Monday that Wainwright "felt great" in his last start. Of Wacha, the GM said "even the doctors were a little surprised how well he looked."
