Jake Westbrook to pay a visit Dr. Andrews

2 Comments

Poor Dr. Andrews. No one ever wants to visit him. And everyone who does is sad. Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Cardinals starter Jake Westbrook will be going to see the good doctor later today.

Westbrook has had lingering discomfort in his right elbow. Hummel notes that he’s fine just playing catch but that throwing from the mound is problematic. For his part, Westbrook says it’s “weird” but that he thinks he’s “structurally sound.” Guess we’ll know after his visit.

All of this stinks too given that Westbrook had a 1.62 ERA in 39 innings before going down. Was really looking sharp.  Here’s hoping for good news.
