Wainwright’s Elbow

adwainSt. Louis Cardinals All-Star pitcher Adam Wainwright underwent a minor arthroscopic procedure earlier today to trim a small piece of cartilage from his right elbow.

Although an initial MRI of his elbow conducted last week came back negative, Wainwright requested additional tests and the findings of a second MRI resulted in the decision to undergo today’s procedure.

Wainwright is scheduled to begin physical therapy in two weeks and he may resume his throwing program eight weeks from today.
