JUPITER, Fla. (AP) Jhonny Peralta has returned to the St. Louis Cardinals training site, wearing a cast and with his left arm in a sling. There's still no updated timetable for the shortstop's return from thumb surgery.

Peralta said Monday he'll be in the cast for two weeks and then stitches will come out. Before the surgery Wednesday, the team estimated he'd be out two to three months.

Jedd Gyorko is the likely starter at shortstop until Peralta returns. Cuban defector Aledmys Diaz also is getting a long look.
