Cardinals | Adam Wainwright in a boot

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 07:11:45 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright (Achilles') has shed his crutches and is in a walking boot two months after Achilles' surgery. Wainwright said he has a chance to return by the end of the season. "I know that I'm working toward the end of the season," Wainwright said. "I don't know if that will (happen), but we'll see."

Fantasy Tip: Let's be clear: Wainwright has a slim-to-none chance of returning this year. He said the same thing when he had Tommy John surgery four years ago. It's part of his personality and his work ethic. He shouldn't be owned in leagues outside of dynasty formats.

Cardinals | More on Adam Wainwright's surgery

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 10:41:55 -0700

Updating an immediate report, St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright (Achilles') didn't require extra material to reattach his ruptured Achilles' tendon, according to general manager John Mozeliak. He'll rest and recover for the next six to eight weeks before beginning rehab. He's out for the season. "Everybody I've spoken to is expecting a full recovery," Mozeliak said. "He's young and he's healthy. People usually come back from this and do well. The doctors feel, that his age, he'll recover fine."

Fantasy Tip: Wainwright will be 34 next season and could slip in drafts to the SP2 range.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright (Achilles') had surgery Thursday, April 30. He'll miss the rest of the season.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Tim Cooney will start Thursday, April 30, to take the place of SP Adam Wainwright (Achilles') for now.

Fantasy Tip: This is likely a one-time start, but it could turn into something more based on how things go. For now, steer clear of Cooney until he has established some value.

Cardinals | GM not optimistic about Adam Wainwright

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 11:55:23 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said he believes SP Adam Wainwright (Achilles') will not pitch again this season, although the club wants to wait for the results of the MRI exam Monday, April 27.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should continue to monitor this situation given the seriousness of Wainwright's injury. For the time being, seasonal owners should not make any hasty roster decisions until an official announcement of his injury status and return timetable has been established. Lance Lynn ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is expected to assume the role of the team's ace and is a solid option on FantasyScore in most matchups.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright placed on DL

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 08:10:09 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright (ankle, Achilles') was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, April 26, because of a low ankle and Achilles' tendon injury.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor this situation since there have been reports that Wainwright will miss the rest of the season. Lance Lynn ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) likely will become the ace of the staff if Wainwright is ruled out and would be a solid option on FantasyScore against most teams.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright out for the season?

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 06:34:18 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright (Achilles') is expected to be finished for the season due to an Achilles' injury, according to sources. Wainwright has yet to undergo an MRI, though.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners will want to wait for an official announcement, but this obviously is horrible news for Wainwright. Continue to check back for updates and don't make any hasty roster moves without confirmation of his injury status and return timetable. The obvious candidate to join the rotation is top-prospect Marco Gonzales, but he is currently on minor league disabled list. Expect more news to develop after Wainwright's MRI Monday, April 27.

Fantasy Tip: Wainwright ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) threw four scoreless innings prior to exiting, lowering his ERA to 1.44. He has been a stud at FantasyScore in 2015, but stay tuned for updates on the severity of his injury.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright tapped for opener

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 13:25:04 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright will start the season opener Sunday, April 5, against the Chicago Cubs.

Fantasy Tip: Wainwright ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) only pitched a handful of innings due to abdominal issues, but it looks like he's over those at the moment. He's still an elite pitcher worth drafting in all formats. Against the Chicago Cubs opening night this Sunday, Wainwright isn't a terrible option, but it might be best to play it safe and avoid him, especially if he's held to a pitch limit.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright impressive in debut

Sun, 22 Mar 2015 11:13:53 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright (abdomen) tossed four scoreless innings in his Grapefruit League debut against the Atlanta Braves Saturday, March 21. He allowed four hits and a walk while striking out three.

Fantasy Tip: While it's encouraging to see Wainwright starting strong, he should be viewed as a slightly risky No. 1 starting option this season based on the high number of innings he has thrown over the last few years.
