Cardinals' Michael Wacha: No drama on deadline day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wacha agreed to a one-year, $6.35 million deal with the Cardinals, avoiding arbitration, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

It seems like Wacha will open the year as the Cardinals' fifth starter, but he has averaged just 129.1 innings over the past three seasons, so don't bank on a 30-start season from the 27-year-old righty. This is Wacha's final arbitration year, so he may be joining a new organization next offseason.

Cardinals' Michael Wacha: Shut down for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wacha was shut down for the season Monday after aggravating his oblique injury, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Wacha was scratched from a rehab start Friday with an issue which was apparently serious enough to end his season. He hadn't pitched at the big-league level since late June and had suffered multiple setbacks. He'll finish the year with a 3.20 ERA and an 8-2 record in 15 starts.

Cardinals' Michael Wacha: Shifts to 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wacha (oblique) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list on Monday.

The move shouldn't affect Wacha's return timeline, as he's already been out for over 60 days. It remains unclear whether or not he'll be able to make it back before the end of the season, as he suffered a setback Friday and was scratched from a rehab start. If he does return, it will be in a bullpen role. The move opens up space on the 40-man roster for Adam Wainwright (elbow) to return from the 60-day disabled list.

Cardinals' Michael Wacha: Slated for bullpen role upon possible return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wacha (oblique), whose prospects of pitching again in 2018 remain uncertain, will definitely be used exclusively in a bullpen role if he does manage to return, Tyler Fenwick of MLB.com reports.

The confirmation comes via manager Mike Shildt, who reached that conclusion after Wacha was unable to make his most recent rehab start for Triple-A Memphis on Friday. That was likely the right-hander's last opportunity to pitch at the minor-league level in 2018, as the Redbirds are already in the thick of the Triple-A playoffs. Wacha will continue to undergo further evaluation on his left oblique, with Shildt stating that he still doesn't know "when or if [Wacha's return] will be."

Cardinals' Michael Wacha: Scratched from minor-league start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wacha (oblique) won't make his scheduled rehab start at Triple-A Memphis on Friday due to oblique discomfort.

Wacha will travel back to St. Louis for further evaluation. The next step in his recovery process figures to be revealed after being examined by team doctors, although this certainly isn't a positive sign for the 27-year-old right-hander.
