Cardinals' Adam Wainwright has torn Achilles, out for season
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said Monday that pitcher Adam Wainwright has been diagnosed with a torn Achilles in his left foot, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Wainwright will undergo surgery Thursday and miss the remainder of the season, the team announced. He suffered the injury while stumbling out of the batter's box during an at-bat in his last start. The recovery time for the procedure is nine-to-12 months, and the team is optimistic about his return.

Wainwright's season comes to a close after four starts. He went 2-1 with a 1.44 ERA and 18:3 K:BB ratio in 25 innings.

The Cardinals are expected to look internally to fill the rotation hole the injury presents. Marco Gonzales and Jaime Garcia are two long-term options to enter the rotation, but both are currently dealing with injuries.

Cardinals will look internally to replace P Adam Wainwright
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

With starter Adam Wainwright likely done for the season with an Achilles injury, the Cardinals will initially look at internal candidates to replace the pitcher, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Cardinals GM John Mozeliak said that to fill Wainwright's spot in the rotation Thursday, the team will look to either lefties Tyler Lyons and Tim Cooney or righthander Zach Petrick

That would seem to eliminate the Cardinals making a move for a veteran pitcher like the Phillies' Cole Hamels, at least for now. 

"If you get into May and early June and you don't feel like the internal options are the solution you were hoping for, then you might have to look outside," Mozeliak said.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright (Achilles) on DL, likely out for season
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright will see a doctor Monday after exiting Saturday's start with an Achilles injury, but the expectation is that he'll miss the remainder of the season, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports.

The Cardinals placed Wainwright on the 15-day DL Sunday with what's being called a low left ankle and Achilles injury. In his place, the team has recalled catcher Cody Stanley.

Wainwright appeared to suffer the injury during one of his own at-bats, stumbling out of the batter's box. The Cardinals announced that the pitcher suffered an ankle injury, and the pitcher himself said after the game that the injury was in the back of the ankle.

"Obviously, anytime you're dealing with an Achilles, it's not good, whether it's a strain or a tear," general manager John Mozeliak said, per MLB.com. "Either way, he's missing time. I'll wait until he sees the doctor tomorrow before making a [definitive] statement [about how long he'll be out]. But clearly, it's not good news."

Wainwright is 2-1 with a 1.44 ERA and 18:3 K:BB ratio in 25 innings. With Jaime Garcia (shoulder) and Triple-A starter Marco Gonzales (pectoral) still on the mend, the team could turn to Triple-A pitcher Tyler Lyons or long-reliever Carlos Villanueva to fill Wainwright's rotation spot for the immediate future, with Garcia or Gonzales likely to enter the rotation when healthy if Wainwright is dealing with a season-ending injury.

"I just know that we have different guys who are ready to take whatever responsibility comes, whatever role comes," manager Mike Matheny said. "When I say we need someone to step up, there's going to be an opportunity for someone to start. And there's going to be some opportunities for leadership, too. Even during this DL time, I know Adam is still going to be around. But it's different every time you take someone away or add someone. We have to make sure that things are getting taken care of, work is getting done and leadership is there. We have all the pieces to make that happen."

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright leaves with ankle injury after at-bat
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright was forced to leave Saturday's game against the Brewers after stumbling out of the batter's box and needing assistance to get off the field, according to MLB.com. Wainwright suffered a left ankle injury and will be re-evaluated when the team returns to St. Louis, the team announced.

Wainwright allowed three hits in four scoreless innings in the game and added four strikeouts to his totals.

"What I've been told is don't even think anything until the doctor tells you what it is," he said to MLB.com. "I've not gotten my hopes up or down. I'm just going to try to be a positive influence here today and tomorrow and see what happens. … Everything right now is just speculation."

Wainwright did not have significant swelling even though his ankle was in a walking boot.

"I thought I got hit by something," said Wainwright, who confirmed it was the back of his ankle. "If you look at the replay, I get out of the box and I looked back to think the catcher's mask must of hit me or the bat must've hit me, something must've hit me."

Cards' Adam Wainwright tosses eight strong innings on Sunday for win
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright (2-1) yielded one run on seven hits in eight innings of work Sunday to defeat the Reds.

The one run Wainright allowed came in the third inning via an RBI single from Brandon Phillips.

Wainright struck out four and walked two.

"When you think careful, you end up making a mistake and you don't throw pitches with conviction," Wainwright said to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "I wanted to pitch (Bruce) tough. I wanted to throw him pitches he could swing at. If you give in right there he can hit a tank bomb and all of sudden you’re down 4-1."

The right hander lowered his ERA to 1.72 with Sunday's performance.

Wainright's next start is set for Saturday in Milwaukee.
