Michael Wacha still thinks he can return
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Cardinals starting pitcher Michael Wacha, who was scratched from Saturday's start because he didn't feel right, threw about 30 pitches in a bullpen session Sunday and felt great, according to Fox Sports Midwest. He still hopes to return to the rotation before season's end, but manager Mike Matheny isn't so sure.

"This is a young player where we had something going, missed a couple of months and all those are reasons for us to once again pause and just kind of take our time, make sure everything looks right before moving forward," Matheny said.

Wacha has made two starts in September after missing all of July and August with a stress fracture in his right shoulder.

by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

FOXSports.com reports that Matt Adams is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup on Sunday due to a tight oblique. Daniel Descalso got the nod at first base against the Rockies in Adams' absence.

Adams missed a pair of games earlier this month due to the same issue.
