Cardinals fans can breathe a sigh of relief.

Adam Wainwright left spring training and traveled to St. Louis to have an abdominal injury examined by a specialist and today general manager John Mozeliak told reporters the result is the “best news we could have gotten.”

Wainwright has been diagnosed with an abdominal strain and has been told to rest for a couple weeks, leaving him plenty of time to get ready for Opening Day.

He can continue to do some throwing, according to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch, but he’ll certainly be limited overall as Wainwright tries to show that he’s healthy following elbow surgery.
