Cal Eldred Expected To Return Soon

The Cardinals expect reliever Cal Eldred to be ready to return to St. Louis soon.

On the disabled list since early April because of a viral inflammation of his heart lining, Eldred is progressing ahead of schedule. Cal made his second rehab outing today for the Springfield Cardinals, the Cardinals AA affiliate.

Eldred threw two shutout innings, allowing only one hit and is scheduled to pitch for the AA Cardinals again Thursday. If all goes well, Eldred could join the team as early as Saturday.
