ST. LOUIS -- Adam Wainwright threw a bullpen session prior to the start of the Cardinals' series finale against the Brewers on Thursday.

It was Wainwright's latest session as he prepares to make his way off the disabled list, and the right-hander reported no pain. Since he was placed on the DL, the Cardinals have stayed afloat, going 21-19.

Wainwright will continue to throw bullpen sessions every other day until the club decides on his rehabilitation starts. Wainwright is hoping to rejoin the club within the next two weeks, at best.

"You hope for the best," St. Louis manager Tony La Russa said. "So far everything is all right. He's going to increase the intensity, so the tests are really still ahead."
