The St. Louis Cardinals kicked off 2012 Spring Training today with the reporting of pitchers and catchers, and two of the main attractions did not hesitate getting to work. Both Adam Wainwright, the Cardinals' ace, and Shelby Miller, the Cardinals' presumed future ace, threw bullpen sessions early in the morning, and a brief glimpse of the two in action was caught by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Derrick Goold.
The video isn't much, but it does, at the very least, prove Wainwright's existence after he missed all of last season following Tommy John surgery. The video is also a window into the future if all things go right in St. Louis, with Miller and fellow top pitching prospect Trevor Rosenthal flanking Wainwright.
