Tony La Russa Won’t Manage Tonight

When the Cardinals open their series against the Cubs at Wrigley Field tonight, Tony La Russa won’t be in the visitors dugout. Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch has the story, and says that Cards general manager John Mozeliak will address La Russa’s status later today.

La Russa has dealt with shingles for nearly a month now and underwent a physical yesterday in Scottsdale, Ariz.

UPDATE: Here’s an article from on Tony La Russa, who is still at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona. His status beyond tonight is undetermined, and Joe Pettini will be the acting manager.
