Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright, who has spent the entire season recovering from elbow surgery, unleashed 50 throws at a distance of 120 feet Monday.

He'll repeat that workout this week with an eye on advancing to the mound in the near future.

Wainwright said his throwing program was slowed by triceps soreness, but he's worked through the muscle ache and now could be throwing off the mound, though not at full strength, early in September.
