Cardinals | Adam Wainwright stifles Bucs in win

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 16:05:15 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright was dazzling in picking up his eighth win of the season Thursday, July 7, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. The veteran worked seven sharp innings, yielding only one run on five hits. He also struck out nine compared to just one walk.

Fantasy Tip: Waino has been one of the bigger disappointments amongst National League starting pitchers this year, but at least he's provided some encouraging performances heading into the break. In fact, he's enjoyed his best back-to-back stretch in his last two starts compared to any other pair of assignments this season. Owners should continue trotting him out in starting lineups, as odds are he pitches more to his norm in the second half.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright remains stingy at home

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 15:55:49 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright scattered seven hits and walked two while fanning five over seven scoreless innings in a win versus the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday, July 02, to run his scoreless streak at home to 17 1/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: The Brewers hit into double plays in three consecutive innings to help Wainwright's cause. Since getting blasted for seven runs in his home debut on April 16, the 34-year-old is 2-1 with a 2.15 ERA over his last seven starts in St. Louis. Wainwright is slated for one more turn at the new Busch Stadium before the All-Star break on Thursday and is a recommended start against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Cardinals | Royals knock around Adam Wainwright

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 22:07:04 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright struck out seven over five innings against the Kansas City Royals on Monday, June 27, but surrendered six runs on 10 hits and a walk to take the loss.

Fantasy Tip: Wainwright entered Monday with a 2.36 ERA in June, but the Royals seemed to take advantage of every hanging curveball he threw. Just like the 34-year-old three-time All-Star and his team, owners will have to shake off this performance and should expect a better outing at home against the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday.

Fantasy Tip: His days of being a fantasy ace are over, but Wainwright is showing signs of becoming a quality mixed league option once again. You may want to pick and choose when you start him based on the matchups, but he should be owned in all leagues.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright wins again

Sun, 29 May 2016 04:46:20 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright allowed four runs and six hits, including a career record-tying three home runs, in a 9-4 win over the Washington Nationals on Saturday, May 28. He struck out five and walked none to earn his fifth straight win.

Fantasy Tip: Wainwright started the season 0-3 and looked absolutlely lost. He's improved as the season progresses, but there are still some question marks (surrendering three homers). Still, the red flags are retreating, and Wainwright is getting more powerful as a pitcher, so give him support in DFS leagues as long as this hot streak continues.
