St. Louis Cardinals' Michael Wacha Will start Game 3 of NLDS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Michael Wacha will start Game 3 of the NLDS, Benjamin Hochman of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Wacha will take the mound in a pivotal Game 3 matchup against Mets' righty Matt Harvey on Monday. Wacha's had some success against the Mets in his career -- he won his only start against them this year -- however both teams have changed considerably since he last pitched against them May 19.

Cardinals' Michael Wacha to start opener of Wednesday twinbill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

St. Louis Cardinals starter Michael Wacha will start Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Pittsburgh Pirates , Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

With Tuesday's game postponed due to weather, Wacha will simply move back to start the opener of what amounts to a critical doubleheader against the division rival Pirates. Instead of facing off against Charlie Morton as initially scheduled Tuesday, Wacha instead will take the mound against Gerrit Cole .

Cardinals' Michael Wacha has Tuesday start washed out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha will not make his scheduled start Tuesday against the Pittsburgh Pirates , as the game has been postponed due to rain, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

The game has been rescheduled as part of a doubleheader Wednesday. Look for Wacha to simply move back to start one game of the twin bill, as he attempts to go 3-0 against the Pirates during the regular season. He's allowed just four earned runs in 18.2 innings against Pittsburgh so far this year.

Cardinals SP Michael Wacha bailed out by offense in poor outing
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cardinals starter Michael Wacha (17-6) wasn't sharp Thursday, allowing six hits, three walks and three runs while striking out only one against the Brewers, but he still emerged victorious.

For that, Wacha can thank his offense, as this was not a good outing at all. In fact, Wacha's been an entirely different pitcher over his last four starts, and not for the better -- in that span of 20 innings, he's given up five home runs and has a horrible 15:14 K:BB. It could be that Wacha is wearing down, as he's never even approached this year's innings total before.

Cardinals SP Michael Wacha falls to 16-6 in loss to Cubs
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cardinals starter Michael Wacha took the loss Saturday, allowing four runs on six hits and four walks over five innings while striking out seven against the Cubs.

This is now the third straight game in which Wacha has walked three or more batters, a strong hint that his career-high workload (172.1 innings on the season and counting) might be catching up to him. His next start is scheduled for Thursday at home against the Brewers, but with the Cardinals already having a playoff spot locked up, don't be surprised if the team tries to give Wacha a rest before the postseason begins.
