Cardinals | Michael Wacha, Carlos Martinez make history

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 00:21:46 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha and SP Carlos Martinez each have at least nine wins through the first 75 games of the season. Martinez (9-3) and Wacha (10-3) are the first duo aged 23 or younger with nine or more wins at this point since Dwight Gooden and Sid Fernandez for the 1986 New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: The Cardinals were supposed to fold without Adam Wainwright, but Wacha ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) and Martinez ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) are part of the reason this team has a 51-24 record. These two are must-plays in FantasyScore and pretty much every other fantasy format.

Cardinals | Rain can't stop Michael Wacha

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 20:48:17 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha allowed two runs and three hits over 6 1/3 innings in a win Tuesday, June 16, against the Minnesota Twins. He was forced to halt warmups before the first pitch was delayed 45 minutes, and his outing was cut short by a rain delay in the seventh inning.

Fantasy Tip: Wacha ($8,400; or 16.8% of cap) improved to 9-2 on the season, but most of his damage has been on the road where he leads the league in road wins with six.

Cardinals | Michael Wacha beating up on aces

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 18:42:37 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Wacha ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) has allowed five hits and just one earned run in each of his three starts this year, and he has yet to lose despite facing some tough competition.

Cardinals | Michael Wacha has innings cap

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 07:21:27 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha will have an innings cap, but it won't be a factor early on, according to manager Mike Matheny.

Fantasy Tip: Wacha threw 180 1/3 innings between the regular season and playoffs in 2013, and that greatly eclipsed their target for him because he pitched so well in the playoffs. A fair assumption would be around 150 innings in the regular season, which would allow for 30 playoff innings. Wacha ($6,100, 12.2% of your cap) is a midrange starter on FantasyScore Saturday at Cincinnati.
