Cardinals' Jaime Garcia to see Dr. James Andrews

Dr. James Andrews is very good at what he does, but nobody really ever wants to hear that they have to go see him.

After feeling pain in his shoulder, Jaime Garcia will pay a second visit to the orthopedist. It was determined in his first visit that Garcia wouldn’t need surgery.

The 27-year old lefty had his season cut short last season, needing surgery to repair his shoulder and will be placed on a rehab program at Andrews’ facility. Garcia would have been the Cardinals’ only lefty in the rotation, and general manager John Mozeliak tells that the results of the pitchers visit on Monday “will really set the course of action for the next couple of weeks.” It is not expected that Garcia will be ready for the start of the season.
