(AP) -- Cardinals left-hander Jaime Garcia returned to camp after receiving a cortisone shot in his sore left shoulder. He's expected to be out at least 10 days.

Reliever Jason Motte threw a bullpen session as he comes back from ligament replacement surgery in his elbow. Motte hopes to be ready for opening day.

St. Louis manager Mike Matheny watched top outfield prospect Oscar Taveres run on Thursday and said his surgically-repaired ankle is still "not quite there." Matheny wants Taveras to be 100 percent before inserting him into a spring lineup.
