    Before his 2012 season ended prematurely with an oblique injury, Westbrook was the reliable veteran the Cardinals needed in the back end of the rotation. An effective sinker is the key for him to be efficient and effective.

    With the Giants trailing in the NLCS, 3-1, Zito pitched the biggest game of his career against these same Cardinals last Oct. 19 at St. Louis, lasting 7 2/3 innings in a 5-0 win. Zito will begin his quest to even his AT&T Park record, which is 30-35.

    Miller earns the start after beating out Trevor Rosenthal and Joe Kelly for the rotation's fifth spot. This will be his second Major League start. He limited the Reds to one hit in six innings in the team's final game of 2012.

    Overall, Vogelsong has a history of struggling at the start of a season. He's 2-4 with a 6.31 ERA lifetime in April. But last year he worked at least six innings in his first 21 starts, matching the third-longest streak in franchise history.

    Wainwright went from dominant to hittable on Opening Day, struggling to finish his pitches in the middle innings in a loss to the D-backs. If he can correct that, there's no reason he shouldn't be able to pitch deeper and more effectively.

    Cain delivered in his first Opening Day start last Monday at Los Angeles, holding the Dodgers hitless in seven at-bats with runners in scoring position. He's 47-38 lifetime at AT&T Park, compared with 38-40 on the road.

    Injuries

    Day-to-day

    15-day DL


    Jason Motte
    Apr 2 - Motte (elbow) isn't expected to be re-evaluated until April 11, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
    ESPN


    David Freese
    Freese (back) may be delayed in his intended season debut next Monday against Cincinnati, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. "We have to see how he bounces back," manager Mike Matheny said. "We just don't have a lot of time to get as much information as we need. Not ruling out that he couldn't be there on the opener, but also not ruling out that he could need a little more time."
    April 4 - The beginning of Freese's rehab assignment has been pushed back to Friday because Triple-A Memphis had their first game of the season rained out Thursday night, MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch reports.
    ESPN


    Rafael Furcal
    Mar 7 - JUPITER, Fla. -- St. Louis shortstop Rafael Furcal will undergo ligament replacement surgery in his right elbow and expects to miss the 2013 season.
    Furcal made the decision after visiting Dr. James Andrew's clinic in Pensacola, Fla., on Wednesday.
    ESPN.com

    60-day DL


    Chris Carpenter
    Mar 18 - JUPITER, Fla. -- Chris Carpenter passed through St. Louis Cardinals camp on Monday five weeks after leaving Jupiter because of physical issues that prevented him from pitching. He sounded more convinced than ever that his major league career is finished.
    Carpenter, 37, continues to be bothered by numbness in his right hand and arm and a mysterious weakness in his shoulder. At the moment, he is focused less on a return to baseball than seeking peace of mind that his current issues won't be a lifelong concern.

    Jake Westbrook is so pathetic, 5 walks today.

    He's the major weak link in the rotation. If he gets hurt we might actually be a better team

    Westbrook goes 6.2 innings but walked in a run and had 6 walks total on the day. Gives up 0 earned but like I said, he is the one who let the run in to score

    Basically, 1 hit and we are looking at a bad day vs the "successful" day he had. If he continues to walk 5+ guys a game then he wil be very bad this year. More teams will hurt him rather than him get lucky and avoid big innings

    6 walks and 6 hits today.... not a very good day at all

    overall though, i think he does just as good at his spot in the rotation as kelly would.... but kelly has more value in the pen than westy or a AAA guy would.

    LOB and WHIP will show how bad he really was.

    Our inability to hit/score against Zito is frustrating.

    My guess would be because the bullpen threw a decent amount if innings last series vs the dbacks, if we could squeez one more inning of of Westbrook it helps out because now we are looking at 2 innings from the bullpen

    Also, in 1 at bat Wiggington swung at a pitch up and outside and a pitch 8 inches off the ground. Can't make this **** up


    There's so much potential for this team but Wiggington and Westbrook could be huge bring downs.

    Westbrook will be okay if he gets his walks under control. He still will suck but he will at least eat some innings and keep us in games. I really don't see any potential from Wiggington. No one should be surprised to see him hitting under .200 on may 1st

    Can't fault Westbrook too much. He only gave up one run and the strike zone was really bad.
