#Cardinals GM Mozeliak on the innings concern and restrictions in place for when prospect Wacha arrives Thurs ...
"The fact is we’ve had a lot of injuries," Mozeliak said of no longer being able to avoid promoting RHP Michael Wacha to the majors. "He's somebody who you has played very well. Right now we need someone to come up here and fill in for a start. There are a lot of questions on how this is going to look like as far as usage. Will he be here the entire season? These are questions we don’t’ have answers for at this time. We are going to be very cognizant of pitch counts and innings. When we think about total innings we want to make sure we’re careful of his usage. If there are times when we can protect him, we will do so. We want to make sure that we understand that we should do what’s best for him as well as give the club some protection."
