 ST. LOUIS (AP) -Cardinals pitcher Mark Mulder underwent an MRI exam and nerve condition study Tuesday after complaining of discomfort in his surgically repaired shoulder.
Mulder was awaiting an exam with Dr. George Paletta, the Cardinals' team physician. The studies were forwarded to Dr. David Altcheck, the New York Mets' team physician, who operated on Mulder's torn rotator cuff in September 2006.
The Cardinals said in a release that results of the studies would be available on Wednesday.
``I did some nerve thing and they said it was fine,'' Mulder said in a brief pre-game interview.
Mulder is 0-3 with a 12.27 ERA in three starts this month. He lasted three innings on Sunday against the Cubs, allowing four runs and seven hits.
After that start, Mulder said he was unable to get his arm high enough to finish his pitches.
Manager Tony La Russa was noncommittal on whether it would be wise to shut down Mulder for the rest of the season, regardless of what the tests show.
``There's no way to make a comment on that,'' La Russa said. ``How are you going to guess? Let the doctor say what he found.''
Mulder won 16 games in 2005, his first season with the Cardinals, giving them a strong 1-2 punch along with Chris Carpenter. He battled shoulder problems last year, spending 85 days on the 15-day disabled list and going 6-7 with a 7.14 ERA before undergoing surgery on Sept. 12.
