Lefty advised to rest for two more weeks after latest checkup

ATLANTA -- The Cardinals announced on Wednesday that left-hander Mark Mulder has been prescribed an even lengthier rest program than initially recommended. Mulder has been sidelined since July 10 due to recurring discomfort in his long-troublesome left shoulder.
On July 19, Mulder was prescribed two weeks of complete rest, avoiding all baseball activities. On Monday, he visited Dr. Lewis Yocum, who advised him to add two more weeks onto that break. Thus, the earliest Mulder could even pick up a baseball would be approximately mid-August.
七月十九日，Mulder被建議要休息兩個星期，避免任何的棒球活動。星期一他去看Dr. Lewis Yocum，醫師建議他再多休息兩個星期。所以，Mulder最快可以碰棒球的時間推遲到約八月中。
The club also announced that right-hander Adam Wainwright, who is rehabbing from a sprained middle finger, will throw at least two more bullpen sessions before he faces hitters. Wainwright will throw only breaking balls in a bullpen on Thursday, and then on Saturday, he will throw what the club calls a "regular" bullpen session. His next throw after that would likely be against hitters.
Right-hander Josh Kinney, it was announced, "has slowed his throwing program." Kinney has been sidelined since he underwent Tommy John elbow ligament replacement surgery during Spring Training in 2007.
右投手Josh Kinney已經延緩他的投球計畫。Kinney在2007年春訓動Tommy John手肘韌帶重建手術，至今仍未出賽。
