Player News
  • Wainwright (5-3) allowed a run on four hits and three walks while striking out three in seven innings to earn the win over the Pirates on Friday. Although Wainwright missed a turn through the rotation last week while on the COVID-19 IL, he's performed well since then with back-to-back quality starts. The 40-year-old has now posted four consecutive quality starts, and he's posted a 2.08 ERA in 26 innings during that time. The right-hander will attempt to remain productive in his next start, and he tentatively lines up to take the mound at home against the Brewers on Friday.

  • Wainwright (4-3) registered the win during Sunday's 15-6 victory over the Giants, allowing two runs on three hits and two walks with five strikeouts in six innings. St. Louis was up big early, and Wainwright was able to cruise to the easy win in his first start since May 4 after a stint on the COVID-19 injured list, permitting both runs on a Joc Pederson home run in the sixth inning. The 40-year-old has now won consecutive starts while surrendering just two runs in 13 innings, boosting his ERA to 3.15 and WHIP to 1.23. Wainwright's next start lines up to come over the weekend against Pittsburgh.

  • Wainwright (illness) was activated from the COVID-19 injured list ahead of his start against the Giants on Sunday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports. Wainwright was cleared to rejoin the Cardinals on Thursday and will reclaim his spot in the rotation on Sunday Night Baseball after clearing MLB's COVID-19 protocols. The veteran right-hander last pitched May 4 against Kansas City and delivered seven scoreless innings, and he could have some minor workload restrictions in his first start back from the illness.

  • Wainwright (illness) will start Sunday against the Giants, John Denton of MLB.com reports. Wainwright tested positive for COVID-19 last week but rejoined the Cardinals on Thursday and will take the mound in Sunday's series finale against the Giants. The right-hander threw a bullpen session, but it's possible that he has his workload monitored following his absence.

  • Wainwright (illness) rejoined the Cardinals on Thursday and completed a bullpen session, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Wainwright remains on the COVID-19 injured list nearly a week after testing positive for the virus, but he's now cleared all protocols after isolating from the team. The Cardinals haven't yet announced a starter for Sunday's series finale against the Giants, but the right-hander looks on track to start that game, provided he feels fine coming out of Thursday's throwing session. It's possible that Wainwright faces more limitations with his pitch count Sunday than usual, however.
