Cardinals' Michael Wacha: Strong effort wasted Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wacha (2-1) tossed six scoreless innings, allowing four hits and three walks while striking out five in a no-decision against the Giants on Friday.

He threw 60 of 86 pitches for strikes, and given the swift collapse of the Cards bullpen after Wacha left the game, manager Mike Matheny might be regretting not trying to get another inning or two out of him. The 25-year-old has worked at least six innings in every start this season and provided a quality start in six of seven outings as he continues to put the memory of an injury-marred 2016 behind him.

Cardinals' Michael Wacha: Scheduled to start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wacha is scheduled to start Friday's series opener against the Giants, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Wacha will return to the mound Friday after being skipped over the last time through the rotation to afford him some extra rest. This should push Carlos Martinez's next scheduled start back to Saturday. Wacha owns a 3.19 ERA and 34:9 K:BB through 36.2 innings (six starts) this season.

Cardinals' Michael Wacha: Skipping Saturday's start for rest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wacha will have his turn in the rotation skipped to allow him to get extra rest, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Wacha was originally scheduled to start Saturday's bout with the division-rival Cubs, but after going six or more innings in each start thus far, the Cardinals are opting to get him a bit of time off. It's unclear who will fill in for him Saturday, but if he returns to the rotation for his next scheduled start, it would likely come May 20 against the Giants.

Cardinals' Michael Wacha: Tosses quality start despite no-decision Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wacha allowed two runs on five hits and two walks across six innings en route to a no-decision in Sunday's start against the Braves. He struck out six.

Wacha cruised into the sixth inning, but he labored a bit and allowed two runs on four consecutive hits before getting a double-play ball to escape the jam. He was removed prior to the seventh with a two-run lead but saw his third win of the season fade away as the bullpen surrendered a pair of late runs. Still, Wacha has delivered quality starts in five of his six outings this season and carries a solid 3.19 ERA, which he has supplemented with a useful 8.3 K/9. He will look to continue what has been a nice start to the campaign Saturday against the Cubs.

Cardinals' Michael Wacha: Posts worst outing of season Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wacha allowed four runs on seven hits (one home run) while walking one and striking out five over six innings for a no-decision in Monday's 7-5 loss to the Brewers.

This was Wacha's first start of his five this season with more than three runs, and it raised his ERA to a respectable 3.23. Despite the subpar effort, the right-hander has a 28:7 K:BB in 30.2 innings and remains an attractive fantasy starter. Don't let this hiccup deter you from using him in his next outing, slated for Saturday in Atlanta.
