The Cardinals hope they got out of the spring without another serious injury, but they won't know for sure for a couple of days after Randal Grichuk got hit by a pitch on his right hand during the final game on Wednesday.
One of the most excited people in Busch Stadium on Sunday night for the Cardinals' season opener against the Cubs might be their new first-base coach, Oli Marmol, who last year was managing a team in A ball.
The Cardinals played to their fourth tie of the spring on Tuesday, with all three of their runs coming on Matt Adams' team-high fifth homer. Adam Wainwright pitched five innings in his final spring start.
Matt Adams was back in left field for the Cardinals again on Monday night, but for the third game when he has played there, he did not have a ball hit to him. He did have an RBI single in a 3-2 win over the Astros.
Yadier Molina returned to the Cardinals lineup on Sunday following the World Baseball Classic and had a two-hit day, including a home run, to lead the Cardinals over the Marlins.
Lance Lynn, John Gant and Jhonny Peralta all had to leave Saturday's game early because of injuries but it appeared none of them are serious as the Cardinals lost 1-0 to the Marlins.

Michael Wacha threw five shutout innings and Dexter Fowler had an RBI triple and scored a run as the Cardinals defeated the Nationals 3-1 on Friday in West Palm Beach.
With just over a week left in spring training it looks likely that the Padres will keep former Cardinals prospect Allen Cordoba, selected in the Rule 5 draft, on their roster instead of offering him back to the Cardinals.
