Eldred makes second outing at Springfield

Thursday, June 9, 2005

ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis reliever Cal Eldred, on the disabled list since early April because of a viral inflammation of his heart lining, threw two shutout innings for Class AA Springfield on Tuesday in his second rehab outing.

Eldred, who allowed one hit, is scheduled to pitch for Springfield again today and could join St. Louis for a nine-day trip starting Saturday if all goes well. He said he threw fewer than 30 pitches Tuesday.

"Same story, same boring story," Eldred said. "It's getting better."

Eldred, 37, has been sidelined since April 11 by myopericarditis. He pitched two innings in two early season appearances, allowing one hit.
