Looking back on 2013 the St. Louis Cardinals would probably be perfectly happy to have cobbled together a full season of starts from Chris Carpenter and Jaime Garcia. Unfortunately for Garcia, that theoretical platoon turns out to look a lot like the full season the Cardinals hoped to get from Lance Berkman and Carlos Beltran in 2012.

Fortunately for Cardinals fans: Jaime Garcia is already throwing! Derrick Goold posted the proof on Instagram! Which is to say that if he were going to have Carpenter-type problems, where he tries to start throwing and realizes he can't do it, they would probably have already cropped up by now. That only leaves—well, a million other shoulder-related ways for him to be ineffective or miss significant time. But it takes one off the list!
