Cardinals Wainwright undergoes elbow surgery

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright has undergone what the team describes as minor elbow surgery that should not set him back for next season.

The Cardinals say Friday's operation was an arthroscopic procedure to trim a small piece of cartilage from the right elbow. The 33-year-old Wainwright is expected to begin physical therapy in two weeks and resume his offseason throwing program in eight weeks.

General manager John Mozeliak and manager Mike Matheny made no mention of the injury at a news conference to review the season earlier this week.

Wainwright went 20-9 with a career-low 2.38 ERA in 32 starts this season.

The team says an initial MRI came back negative, but Wainwright requested additional tests and the findings of a second MRI resulted in the decision to operate.
