    • Contrary to a previous report, Wacha will start Friday against the Reds, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports. The Cardinals were originally planning to push Wacha's start back by a day (to Wednesday) following Monday's postponement, but the team decided to push him back to Friday in order to keep Luke Weaver on normal rest for Wednesday's game. Wacha now projects to face Brandon Finnegan in a home game.

    • Wacha will now start Wednesday instead of Tuesday after a postponement caused the Cardinals to shift all their starters back one game, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports. Monday's game was postponed due to inclement weather, so scheduled starter Adam Wainwright will pitch Tuesday instead, bumping Wacha back to Wednesday. The 26-year-old righty has had a rough time in his first three starts, posting a 5.52 ERA and a 12:10 K:BB in 14.2 innings.

    • Cardinals' Michael Wacha: Grinds out win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Wacha (2-1) allowed three earned runs on five hits while walking three and striking out five across five innings to earn the win against the Reds on Thursday. Despite a pedestrian line, Wacha flashed positive skill in his Thursday start, inducing 11 swinging strikes and keeping six of the 10 balls put in play on the ground. His control remains a concern as he has now surrendered 10 free passes in 14.2 innings pitched. Given the weakened Cincinnati lineup -- they were without Joey Votto as well as Eugenio Suarez and Scott Schebler -- it would have been nice to see more out of Wacha's final line, but this outing still has to be considered positive overall.

    • Wacha (1-1) picked up the win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday, giving up two runs on four hits and five walks over five innings while striking out five. The right-hander allowed baserunners in every inning and threw only 48 of his 89 pitches for strikes, but Wacha was able to minimize the damage and notch his first win of the season. He now has a 7:7 K:BB through his first 9.2 innings, a ratio that will need to improve significantly if he's going to lower his 5.59 ERA. Wacha will next take the mound Thursday in Cincinnati.
