  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Fans nine in dominant win

    Wainwright (6-5) picked up the win in Monday's 9-0 rout of the Marlins, allowing seven hits and a walk over seven scoreless innings. He struck out nine.

    After a couple shaky performances, the 40-year-old regained his form, posting his second-highest strikeout total of the season en route to his ninth quality start. Wainwright snapped a streak of six straight outings without a win in the process, and he'll carry a 3.07 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 76:26 K:BB through 91 innings into his next start.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Can't complete five innings

    Wainwright allowed four runs on seven hits and a walk with seven strikeouts in 4.2 innings Wednesday versus the Brewers. He did not factor in the decision.

    This was just the second time all year Wainwright's failed to complete five innings, and both of those games were against the Brewers. He was responsible for solo home runs by Rowdy Tellez and Andrew McCutchen in this contest as well as both runs in the Brewers' fifth-inning rally. The poor start saw Wainwright's ERA tick up to 3.32 with a 1.26 WHIP and 67:25 K:BB across 84 innings overall. He's projected for a more favorable home start versus the Marlins next week.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Handed fifth loss

    Wainwright (5-5) allowed four runs on seven hits and a walk with five strikeouts in 6.1 innings, taking the loss Friday versus the Red Sox.

    Wainwright had a fairly good start, but he ran into trouble in the seventh inning, and T.J. McFarland couldn't stop the bleeding. Across his last six starts, Wainwright has pitched into the seventh inning five times while allowing 14 runs (13 earned) in 39.1 frames. The 40-year-old has a solid 3.06 ERA with a 1.24 WHIP and 60:24 K:BB across 79.1 innings in 13 starts overall. He's gone five turns through the rotation since his last win, something he'll look to change next week in Milwaukee.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Fans seven in no-decision

    Wainwright didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Reds, giving up three runs on eight hits and a walk over seven innings. He struck out seven.

    The 40-year-old got outdueled by 22-year-old rookie Hunter Greene to begin the game, and despite delivering his third straight quality start and eighth of the season, Wainwright was on the hook for his fifth loss until Tommy Edman capped a late rally with a walkoff homer. Wainwright has failed to last at least six innings only once in his last eight outings, posting a 2.42 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 33:16 K:BB through 52 innings over that stretch.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Submits seven strong innings

    Wainwright registered a no-decision during Sunday's 5-3 win against the Cubs, allowing two runs on nine hits and two walks in seven innings. He failed to record a strikeout.

    Wainwright put multiple runners on in a few innings but was able to limit the damage to one run apiece in the first and fourth innings and keep the game close. The 40-year-old fired 64 of 102 pitches for strikes with 10 of the swinging variety, though he failed to record a strikeout after notching a season-high 10 during his previous start. Wainwright lowered his ERA to 2.73 and is scheduled to face off against Cincinnati next weekend.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Dominant in no-decision

    Wainwright struck out 10 in seven scoreless innings while allowing two hits and a walk in a 3-2 win Tuesday over San Diego. He did not factor into the decision.

    Wainwright limited the Padres to just two singles, both by Luke Voit, and at one point retired 14 consecutive batters. He left the game in line for the victory but the St. Louis bullpen was unable to hold the lead. The 10 strikeouts were a season high and equaled his total from his previous three starts combined. The veteran had an excellent May, compiling a 1.69 ERA and 0.88 WHIP in 32 innings.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Tagged with loss Thursday

    Wainwright (5-4) took the loss against Milwaukee on Thursday, allowing four runs (three earned) on 10 hits and one walk while striking out two over five innings.

    Wainwright labored to make it through five frames, needing 100 pitches and yielding a season-high 10 hits. He gave up a pair of runs in the first inning and single runs in each of the second and fourth frames. The veteran entered the contest riding a three-game win streak on the strength of having allowed just three runs over his previous 20 innings, but he gave up more hits and runs Thursday than he had during all three games of the win streak combined. Wainwright will look to bounce back in his next start, which is scheduled to come at home against the Padres next week.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Logs another quality start

    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.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Tosses quality start in return

    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.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Activated for Sunday's start

    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.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Starting Sunday

    Wainwright (illness) will start Sunday against the Giants, John Denton of 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.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Rejoins team

    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.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Not available to start Tuesday

    Wainwright (illness) won't return from the COVID-19 injured list to start Tuesday's game against the Orioles, and Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak said it's "unlikely" the right-hander is activated before the end of the team's homestand Sunday, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    According to Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat, Wainwright has been medically cleared, but based on Mozeliak's comments, the right-hander apparently still has a few hurdles to overcome before exiting MLB's protocols. Heading into the day, the Cardinals were hopeful Wainwright would exit the protocols and not miss a turn through the rotation, but he doesn't look as though he'll be available at any point this week. Packy Naughton will draw the spot start Tuesday in what's shaping up to be a bullpen day for the Cardinals.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Could be available to start Tuesday

    The Cardinals may have Wainwright (illness) available to start Tuesday's series opener against Baltimore if he can test out of MLB's COVID-19 protocols leading up to the game's 7:45 p.m. ET start time, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Wainwright has been away from the team since testing positive for the virus Friday. The veteran right-hander apparently isn't dealing with overly serious symptoms, but the Cardinals could still choose to give him an extra day to get his conditioning back in order and have him start Wednesday instead even if he clears the protocols by Tuesday. If the Cardinals elect to go that route, Miles Mikolas -- who has already been confirmed as Wednesday's starter -- will likely be moved up a day to start Tuesday.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Tests positive for COVID-19

    Wainwright landed on the injured list Friday after testing positive for COVID-19, John Denton of reports.

    The Cardinals originally didn't announce which injured list Wainwright was being placed on nor why he was absent, as has become standard protocol for players hitting the COVID-19 injured list. It turns out that he did in fact test positive for the virus, but the right-hander noted on his personal Twitter page that he's symptom-free. He'll have to test negative twice before returning to action, but if he remains unaffected by the illness he should be no worse for wear once he makes it back.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Lands on injured list

    Wainwright was placed on the injured list for undisclosed reasons Friday.

    Not only did the Cardinals' announcement not specify the reason for Wainwright's absence, it also didn't specify which injured list the veteran righty had been placed on. That's the pattern teams have used when placing players on the COVID-19 injured list, which seems to be the case here. If Wainwright has tested positive for the virus, he could miss a handful of starts, but if he's out for other reasons, it's possible he returns without missing a single turn. His absence allows the Cardinals to activate Steven Matz from the bereavement list.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Blanks Royals for seven frames

    Wainwright (3-3) earned the win Wednesday in Kansas City after allowing one hit with two strikeouts and one walk across seven scoreless innings.

    The veteran right-hander threw 60 of his 89 pitches for strikes but generated only eight swinging strikes, which resulted in a season-low two punchouts. The lack of whiffs didn't matter much Wednesday, as Wainwright allowed only one single and induced 15 groundball outs. The 40-year-old has a 3.18 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 28:13 K:BB over 34 innings this season, and he next lines up to pitch Tuesday versus the Orioles.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Takes loss against Diamondbacks

    Wainwright (2-3) was charged with the loss to the Diamondbacks on Friday, allowing three runs on four hits and five walks over six innings. He struck out four.

    The veteran did himself no favors by handing out five free passes, more than he had in any single start last season. Wainwright has now taken back-to-back losses against Cincinnati and Arizona, and his WHIP is all the way up at 1.56. At least he's striking batters out, and he's only allowed two long balls in 27 innings so far.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Tagged with second loss

    Wainwright (2-2) allowed four runs on eight hits and three walks over five innings Sunday, striking out three and taking a loss against the Reds.

    The Reds jumped on Wainwright right out of the gate, plating two runs in the first inning and another in the second. He settled in for a few scoreless frames before allowing the first three batters to reach base in the sixth, including an RBI single by Colin Moran. In his two wins this season, Wainwright has allowed just one run through 11.2 innings, but in his two losses, he's been drilled for eight runs in 9.1 frames. The veteran righty will carry a 3.86 ERA into his projected home start against Arizona next week.

  • Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Picks up second win

    Wainwright (2-1) earned the win Tuesday against the Marlins after giving up one run on five hits with six strikeouts and two walks over 5.2 innings.

    The veteran right-hander kept Miami scoreless through five innings and retired the first two batters of the sixth, but he was pulled after surrendering a solo homer followed by a single. It was a nice rebound performance from Wainwright after he allowed four runs over 4.1 frames during his last start in Milwaukee, and he now has a 2.81 ERA through three outings this season. The 40-year-old lines up for an appealing matchup Sunday at Cincinnati outside of the usual ballpark effects.
