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 Cardinals.com 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.
