He's been making amends with his bat ever since. Six homers in his last seven games.

From the Associated Press today:

JUPITER, Fla. -- St. Louis Cardinals left fielder Marcell Ozuna will be on a limited throwing program to start the spring but is expected to be ready for Opening Day, manager Mike Shildt said Saturday.

... Shildt isn't at all worried that the slugger won't be ready when the Cardinals open the season at Milwaukee on March 28.

"Hasn't caused me a wink of sleep."

Somehow Peter anticipated the shoulder issues -- a near-perfect projection for last year. Perfect if you go by earnings.

Who knows what his shoulder issues did to his swing? 

The Cards have him back in camp early, and are apparently working on re-tooling his throwing mechanics, to avoid the same kinds of shoulder problems this year.

3 Picks, no pans in the Guide.  I'm with them ... last year's numbers seem like a floor if he's looking healthy once ST games start.
