ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Kyle Lohse expects to make start Wednesday after emerging from a bullpen session without pain in his right forearm.
Lohse was hit in the arm by a pitch on May 23.
The Cardinals already have a fill-in starter for tonight, with long reliever Brad Thompson getting his first start of the season in place of Joel Pineiro, who has back spasms.
Manager Tony La Russa said Monday that Pineiro was feeling better and the team was hopeful he could take his next turn on Sunday.
