(BaseballStL) – The Cardinals announced Jaime Garcia will have an MRI on his surgically repaired left shoulder Sunday.

Cards GM John Mozeliak said the lefthander will return to St. Louis to have the MRI performed. Mozeliak said Garcia had been complaining about the discomfort for several days.

"It's just been something where he hasn't felt quite right the last 48 hours," general manager John Mozeliak said. "From a medical standpoint, no one thought it was that serious. But it wasn't improving. And given how early it is in camp, there's no reason to try and work through some thing if it might be something larger. We think it's just better to get some resolution and have him seen back in St. Louis."

The Cards will announce the result of the exam Monday.
