Cardinals Shelby Miller says his shoulder is back to normal

Posted by Scott Wuerz on February 22, 2013 

Cardinals fans can breathe a sigh of relief.

Shelby Miller, scratched earlier this week from a pitching session because of pain in his shoulder, says he feels much better. He threw this morning from a mound without pain and threw Thursday from flat ground. His problem seems to have simply been that he suffered a bit of stiffness due to the increased activity that comes with the start of spring taining.

Miller told that he's trying some new stretching exercises to limber up his shoulder and that they seem to be working well.

The Cardinals had planned to start Miller Sunday against the Boston Red Sox, the team's second game of the Grapefruit League campaign. No word on if Miller will still make that start or if he'll be pushed back. Ace Adam Wainwright is supposed to start Monday for St. Louis which would put him on schedule to take the mound on opening day of the regular season.
