Westbrook returns to mound in bullpen session
ST. LOUIS -- Cardinals right-hander Jake Westbrook threw 35 pitches during a morning bullpen session on Sunday and said afterward that "all went well." Westbrook had not pitched off a mound since cutting his Sept. 22 session short due to continued discomfort in his right oblique.

Though Westbrook hopes to build himself back to where he could be considered a bullpen option if the Cardinals advance past the National League Division Series, his schedule over the next week will be fluid.

Westbrook will head back to his home in Georgia when the Cardinals leave for Washington after Game 2. Westbrook's wife, Heather, is scheduled to be induced into labor on Thursday. The couple, who already have three children, are expecting their third son.

As a result, Westbrook did not know when he will take the mound next.
