Kenta Maeda will be activated from the disabled list to start the series finale on Thursday night. He threw 62 pitches in four innings in a tuneup on Friday for Class-A Rancho Cucamonga.
Michael Wacha has lasted at least six innings in all seven of his starts this season. As a precaution for someone with a history of shoulder injuries, the Cardinals skipped a Wacha start earlier in May, and the extra rest helped. He pitched six scoreless innings in his last time out, on Friday against the Giants.
