Day 43: Cardinals @ Springfield

Jenifer Langosch/MLB.com

About an hour ago, buses pulled out of the Cardinals’ complex to transport players and staff to a nearby charter that would whisk them away to Missouri. For a few hours. The Cardinals will play their Double-A Springfield affiliate tonight and then immediately return to Florida to prepare for Wednesday’s season opener in Miami.

There was still some activity in Jupiter earlier this morning, most notably involving Adam Wainwright. Wainwright wrapped up his especially long camp by throwing 75 pitches to Minor League hitters in a live batting practice session. Read this for more on that outing and Wainwright’s thoughts as he prepares for Saturday’s start against the Brewers.

No lineups for you today, as I am not traveling to Springfield. But I will direct you to the first wave of MLB.com’s season preview content. A general season preview is featured on all 30 team sites today. Here they are as easy, direct links for those of you who want to get a feel for the makeup of all the clubs standing in the way of the Cardinals defending their championship. Click on a team name to access that specific preview.

These are highly recommended reads, though, yes, I am biased.
