Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Chased early by Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 12-11 win over the Reds, coughing up seven runs on nine hits over 3.1 innings while striking out four.

After putting together his best start of the season against Arizona in his last trip to the mound Sunday, Wainwright crashed back to earth with his worst outing of the year, as the runs and hits allowed were both season highs. The veteran right-hander will carry a 4.50 ERA and 93:37 K:BB through 98 innings into his next start Wednesday in Pittsburgh.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Strikes out seven
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (6-7) gave up four hits and one walk while striking out seven through seven scoreless innings to take the win against the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Wainwright delivered a gem to out-duel Zack Greinke on his way to his sixth win of the season. The 37-year-old has been great in his last seven starts, posting a 2.98 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and a 10.2 K/9. Wainwright will make his next start Friday against the Reds at Great American Ball Park.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Set to start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (back) is scheduled to start Sunday's series finale against the Diamondbacks, Anne Rogers of reports.

Wainwright was scratched from Friday's start due to back spasms but will apparently be ready to take the mound after a couple additional days of rest. Previously scheduled starter Miles Mikolas will be pushed back a day and will start Monday versus the Pirates.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Scratched with back spasms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright was scratched from his scheduled start Friday against the Diamondbacks with back spasms, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Wainwright has yet to be placed on the injured list, so it sounds as though the Cardinals may expect him to miss just one start. Daniel Ponce de Leon will make a spot start in his absence.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Fans six in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright took a no-decision during Wednesday's win over the Mariners, surrendering two runs on four hits and three walks while striking out six over five innings.

Wainwright worked around a few walks and a single to hold the Mariners scoreless through four until Dylan Moore launched a solo homer in the fifth inning. The 37-year-old was then pulled in the sixth after allowing a leadoff single to Domingo Santana, who eventually scored on a wild pitch from reliever Tyler Webb. Wainwright, who was pitching at T-Mobile Park for the first time in his 14-year career, threw just 63 of 101 pitches for strikes. The right-hander now owns a 4.31 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 82:36 K:BB over 16 starts.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Fans nine in tough loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (5-7) took the loss Wednesday against the Athletics after giving up two runs on seven hits across 6.2 innings. He struck out nine and walked one.

Wainwright pitched well Wednesday but was pulled during the seventh inning following a two-out homer from Matt Chapman. The Cardinals rewarded their veteran right-hander for his effective performance by not recording an extra-base hit until the ninth inning, saddling him with the loss. The 37-year-old has a 4.35 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 76:33 K:BB over 82.2 innings this season and should pitch at Seattle next week.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Average in return from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright allowed three runs on six hits and a walk while striking out six over 5.1 innings Thursday night against the Marlins. He didn't factor into the decision.

Wainwright was reinstated from the 10-day injured list prior to Thursday's start after missing one turn through the rotation due to a hamstring injury. The Marlins struck first in this one with a run in the fourth, and Wainwright would allow two more runs in the sixth before getting yanked. He fired 56 of 86 pitches for strikes and induced six groundouts compared to four flyouts. The 37-year-old right-hander has posted a 4.50 ERA and 1.39 WHIP with 67 punchouts over 76 innings this season.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Activated ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Thursday against the Marlins.

Wainwright wound up missing just one start while on the injured list with a bout of hamstring soreness. The veteran right-hander compiled a 4.46 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 61:31 K:BB in 70.2 innings (13 starts) prior to landing on the shelf. Daniel Ponce de Leon was sent back to the minors in a corresponding move.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Scheduled to return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (hamstring) will return from the 10-day injured list to start Thursday against the Marlins, Jenifer Langosch of reports.

Wainwright will wind up missing just a single turn through the rotation after leaving his previous start with hamstring soreness. Langosch also reports that Wainwright completed a bullpen session and agility work Monday and fielding activities Tuesday, which presumably sealed the team's decision to activate him. Wainwright owns a 4.46 ERA in 13 starts this season, the exact same figure he recorded in eight starts last year.

June 17, 2019 07:56 PM
Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Closing in on return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (hamstring) threw a successful bullpen session Monday and could return to the rotation either Thursday against the Marlins or Friday against the Angels, Mark Saxon of The Athletic reports.

Wainwright suffered a left hamstring strain June 9, but he's made impressive progress since and should be activated from the injured list later in the week. Either Daniel Ponce de Leon or Michael Wacha could be headed to the bullpen upon Wainwright's return.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Dealing with mild strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright has been diagnosed with a mild left hamstring strain and will be re-evaluated in one week, Jim Hayes of FOX Sports Midwest reports.

Wainwright was placed on the 10-day injured list after exiting Sunday's outing with a hamstring issue. While it's positive news that the hamstring strain is mild, the Cardinals likely won't know how much time the right-hander will miss until they re-evaluate Wainwright in a week.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday.

The move isn't a surprising one, as reports over the weekend suggested that Wainwright would miss at least one start. It's not clear at this point if he's expected to miss more time than that. Daniel Ponce de Leon appears to be the top candidate to fill his place in the rotation. Reliever Ryan Helsley was promoted to take Wainwright's roster spot.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Expected to miss next start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (hamstring) is on his way to St. Louis for further evaluation and is expected to miss at least one start, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Wainwright was lifted from Sunday's start after experiencing tightness in his left hamstring, and he's headed for further evaluation to determine the extent of the issue. Skipper Mike Shildt stated that he anticipates Wainwright missing at least one start, though he could miss more time if the injury is severe.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Nursing hamstring tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright was removed from Sunday's game against the Cubs due to hamstring tightness, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Wainwright had to leave the game due to injury, though it remains to be seen if he'll be forced to miss any time while on the mend. He's likely headed for further testing.

June 9, 2019 08:44 PM
Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Exits with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright exited Sunday's game against the Cubs with an apparent injury, Jesse Rogers of reports.

It's unclear as to what kind of injury Wainwright sustained, but it was evidently significant enough to chase him from the game. He'll be considered day-to-day until more information is disclosed.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright will start Sunday's game against the Cubs, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Wainwright originally lined up to start Saturday, but he'll get an extra day off following the postponement of Wednesday's game due to rain. The 37-year-old fired eight two-hit innings versus the Cubs on Monday and will look to replicate that performance at Wrigley Field this weekend.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Strikes out eight in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (5-5) gave up no runs on two hits and seven walks while striking out eight through eight innings to take the win over the Cubs on Sunday.

Wainwright was electric at times, gathering 14 swinging strikes in his 126 pitches. The walks continue to be an issue for the 37-year-old as he allowed his highest walk total of the season and has a 4.1 BB/9 this season. He has a 5-5 record with a 4.34 ERA and a 8.0 K/9 through 12 starts. Wainwright will face the Cubs again Saturday in his next start, this time at Wrigley Field.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Whiffs 10 in losing effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (4-5) allowed four earned runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out 10 across six innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Phillies.

Wainwright coughed up a three-run lead, allowing a two-run double to Bryce Harper in the third inning and a two-run homer to Cesar Hernandez in the fourth frame. However, the right-hander found the zone with 64 of 92 pitches and racked up an impressive 10 strikeouts -- his highest single-game total since May 25, 2014 -- on the strength of 23 called strikes. He now owns a 4.94 ERA and 1.41 WHIP with 51 strikeouts across 58.1 innings. He'll look to improve on those numbers in his next start, currently scheduled for Sunday against the Cubs.

May 23, 2019 04:00 PM
Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Goes five innings in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (4-4) gave up three runs on six hits and four walks while striking out two over five innings to earn the win over the Royals on Wednesday.

Wainwright didn't exactly dominate, but he worked his way in and out of trouble to pick up his fourth win. The walks continue to be a problem as he has allowed a 4.0 BB/9, and he will have to be more efficient to pitch deeper into games. The right-hander has a 4-4 record with a 4.82 ERA and 41:23 K:BB through 10 starts this season. Wainwright will make his next start Wednesday against the Phillies.

May 17, 2019 10:20 AM
Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Smashed by Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (3-4) took the loss against the Braves on Thursday, giving up five earned runs on five hits and five walks while striking out two over four innings as the Cardinals fell 10-2.

Coming off a solid start against the Pirates, Wainwright couldn't keep it rolling in this contest, as he struggled with his command while allowing 10 baserunners. He's had an erratic start to the season overall, as the veteran right-hander is now sporting a 4.75 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP over 47.1 innings.
