Adam Wainwright leaves spring training to have abdominal pain examined in St. Louis


The focus has been on Adam Wainwright’s elbow as he comes back from surgery to remove a bone spur and trim cartilage, but now he’s got a different medical issue.

Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that Wainwright has left Cardinals camp and traveled back to St. Louis to have his abdominal pain examined by a specialist.

Wainwright is already behind his normal throwing schedule because of the elbow surgery and he’s been further limited early in camp by the new injury. General manager John Mozeliak told Goold that the Cardinals expect to have more information Thursday.
