Pitchers and catchers reported to Spring Training a week ago and full squad practices began on Sunday. Somehow, we already have some injury news:

The good news is, nothing appears to be wrong structurally with Carlos Martínez’s shoulder. It is said to just be a strength issue and the rest is a precaution.

It is unclear what this means for Carlos and the Cardinals. According to Martínez, he preparing to start.

Hopefully this is just a precaution and Carlos will be ready to go after the two-week break. There has been some discussion among fans and media about a potential move to the bullpen, but at the end of the day, Martínez projects as the Cardinals top starter. If he is healthy, that is where he should be.

Unfortunately, that is a significant if right now.
