Wacha expects to make next start on schedule

Michael Wacha presented his right arm for examination in the clubhouse Thursday, one day after Matt Adams' screaming foul ball into the Cardinals' dugout ricocheted off the back wall and into Wacha's right elbow, forcing him to exit after six scoreless innings. The evidence, two red seam marks, remained. There was, however, little bruising and no numbness. Wacha played catch without issue at Busch Stadium prior to the Cardinals' series finale against the D-backs, clearing the way for him to make his next scheduled start, Monday's series opener against the Yankees.
