ST. LOUIS — The Cardinals received positive news about staff ace Adam Wainwright Thursday, announcing in a press conference form Florida the 33-year-old is only dealing with an abdominal strain. 

GM John Mozeliak said the news was the best case scenario, and Wainwright will return to camp by Friday. 

The right-hander will be limited in workouts and will rest to allow the strain to heal, but still has time to be ready for his scheduled Opening Night start. The strain does not affect his ability to throw, and he is expected to be full speed within a couple weeks.
