• The Cardinals reassigned right-hander Jordan Swagerty to Minor League camp on Sunday. Swagerty, who stopped his throwing program due to elbow inflammation, will continue his rehab work in the new setting.
• Matheny said that the Cardinals still do not have a date scheduled for Oscar Taveras' spring debut, as the club is waiting until "he is 100 percent and not holding back." Taveras continues to increase the intensity of his running and is specifically being pushed through exercises that have him take his first step with his surgically repaired right ankle.
"He's close to being ready to take off," Matheny said. "When he's ready to go, it'll be full go."
• Jason Motte, who is rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, threw another bullpen session on Sunday. He threw 20 pitches, took a break for a few minutes and then closed the session with 20 more. Motte has now thrown four bullpen sessions to a crouching catcher, a step he moved onto last Sunday.
• The Cardinals will get their first chance to test Major League Baseball's new replay system on Wednesday, when it is made available for the team's game against the Red Sox. MLB is preselecting a handful of games for replay during Spring Training, and in those games, managers will not have a limit on how many calls they choose to challenge.
• Infielder Greg Garcia, who left Saturday's game with a left hamstring cramp, was held out of Sunday's game but is making the trip to Lakeland, Fla., for Monday's game. He is expected to be available to play in the game against Detroit.
