JUPITER, Fla. (AP) _ Jaime Garcia was scratched from Sunday’s start by the St. Louis Cardinals because his surgically repaired shoulder doesn’t feel right, making it unlikely he will start the season on the active roster.

Garcia, who had been among three pitchers competing for the fifth starter’s job, told the Cardinals on Saturday that his shoulder hadn’t recovered from Tuesday’s simulated game
