Cardinals' Michael Wacha: Strikes out four in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wacha struck out four but was tagged with five runs (four earned) over five innings in a no-decision against the Cubs on Saturday. He allowed six hits and four walks as the Cubs eventually won 6-5.

Wacha gave up a run in the first inning on a Kris Bryant single, but he ran into real trouble in the fourth. Holding a 5-1 lead, he loaded the bases on two singles and a walk before yielding a grand slam to Taylor Davis to tie the score. The 27-year-old stayed in through the fifth inning but was removed after throwing 83 pitches. Wacha has a bloated 5.17 ERA and 1.63 WHIP this season, along with a 33:21 K:BB.

Cardinals' Michael Wacha: Downs Nats in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wacha (2-0) picked up the win in Monday's 6-3 victory over the Nationals, giving up three runs on four hits and three walks over five innings while striking out five.

The right-hander gave up all three runs in the second inning, including a bases-loaded walk to opposing pitcher Patrick Corbin, but Wacha settled down after that and was rewarded when the Cards erupted for six runs in the fifth. He threw 67 of 101 pitches for strikes in his first start since recovering from mild tendinitis in his left knee. Wacha will carry a 4.78 ERA and 29:17 K:BB through 26.1 innings into his next start Saturday, on the road against the Cubs.

Cardinals' Michael Wacha: Ready to go after IL stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals activated Wacha (knee) from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Monday versus the Nationals.

St. Louis optioned reliever Ryan Helsley to Triple-A Memphis to clear a spot on the active roster for Wacha, who was sidelined for just over the minimum 10 days with the knee injury. The right-hander didn't require a minor-league rehab assignment prior to being reinstated and isn't expected to have any significant restrictions as he rejoins the Cardinals for what should be the first of two starts this week. He tentatively lines up for his second turn Saturday in Chicago against the Cubs.

Cardinals' Michael Wacha: Officially named Monday's starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wacha (knee) has officially been designated as the starting pitcher for Monday's game against the Nationals, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

The right-hander was apparently feeling well enough Saturday after a bullpen session Friday for the Cardinals to announce the move. If Wacha does indeed take the hill versus Washington on Monday, it will mean he only missed one start while on the 10-day injured list.

Cardinals' Michael Wacha: Successful bullpen Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wacha (knee) threw a pain-free bullpen session Friday, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

As a result, Wacha remains on track for activation Monday, when he'd draw the start against the Nationals. However, manager Mike Shildt emphasized Friday that the team will still ensure the right-hander suffers no residual effects from Friday's work over the weekend before making a final decision on his status.
