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.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright to debut Saturday

Tue, 17 Mar 2015 07:41:18 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright (abdomen) will make his spring training debut Saturday, March 21.

Fantasy Tip: Some veterans are making their first start this week to save on innings, so Waino really isn't that far behind. He has time to be ready for the first week of the season. The concern is that Wainwright is 33 and coming off an elbow cleanup. He has thrown a ton of innings the past two seasons with deep playoff runs, so he's a risky SP1.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright throws sim game

Mon, 16 Mar 2015 10:06:48 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright (abdomen) tossed a 50-pitch simulated game to mainly minor leaguers and OF Jon Jay Monday, March 16, and he mixed in all his pitches. Wainwright said he's ready to pitch in a real spring game next. He'll have time to make three starts before the team's season opener against the Chicago Cubs.

Fantasy Tip: Wainwright hasn't had any setbacks at all since initially being diagnosed with an abdominal strain. That's good news, and he should be ready for opening day if everything plays out according to plan. Consider Wainwright a low-tier fantasy ace for your fake pitching staff.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright will pitch Monday

Sun, 15 Mar 2015 06:33:51 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright (abdomen) will pitch a simulated game Monday, March 16.

Fantasy Tip: Wainwright continues to make positive strides toward being ready for the regular season, however it is worth checking back for updates as the spring progresses. The 34-year-old righty has thrown 468 2/3 innings over the past two seasons, so his heavy workload and preseason injury are minor concerns. Still, he has been a dominant starter and fantasy ace the past two seasons and the two seasons before his Tommy John surgery in 2011. Consider Wainwright a low-end No. 1 starter.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright throws Thursday

Thu, 12 Mar 2015 10:03:00 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright (abdomen) threw two simulated innings Thursday, March 12, and he thinks there is more than enough time for him to be ready for the season opener. Wainwright continues to build strength and go through his progression of pitches. He has yet to run at full speed and has been doing limited fielding exercises. He expects to gain clearance to increase the intensity in workouts in the next few days. Wainwright looks to be itching to pitch in his first spring game this year.

Fantasy Tip: As long as Wainwright doesn't have any setbacks with his abdominal strain once he moves to spring starts, he should be ready in early April, if not on opening day against the Chicago Cubs. That should keep him in fantasy ace territory on draft day.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright throws bullpen

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 09:57:40 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright (abdomen) was encouraged with his high-intensity bullpen session Thursday, March 5, and he's expected to throw live batting practice Sunday, March 8.

Fantasy Tip: Wainwright looks to be progressing well from his abdominal injury, and if he proceeds at this pace, there's a good chance he could be ready to pitch on opening day against the Chicago Cubs. Unless he suffers another setback, Wainwright should remain on the edge of fantasy ace consideration.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright to throw again

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 12:31:05 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright (abdomen) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Thursday, March 5. Wainwright is still restricted from running and fielding drills because of the injury.

Fantasy Tip: Wainwright appears to be taking things slow while he works his way back from the injury. It is not known if he will pitch in a spring training game, but he should be ready for the regular season if he does not have any setbacks. Wainwright probably should be seen as a No. 2 starting pitcher in most mixed leagues.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright throws Monday

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 12:37:07 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright (abdomen) threw 41 pitches during a bullpen session Monday, March 2, and said he is where he wants to be physically. He is still limited in running and agility drills because of the injury and may not pitch in a spring training game for another two to three weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Wainwright likely will take things slow to make sure he is ready for the regular season. Owners should continue to monitor the situation during the spring to see if he has any setbacks. Wainwright probably is a No. 2 starting pitcher in mixed leagues if he is ready for opening day.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright to throw bullpen

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 07:13:52 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright (abdominal) will throw a bullpen session Monday, March 2.

Fantasy Tip: Wainwright has plenty of time to catch up, but the team may be cautious with him the first couple of weeks. Wainwright is an upper-echelon SP2 in mixed leagues.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwrights' availability in doubt?

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 09:45:58 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright (abdomen) won't pitch in spring games until mid-March due to an abdominal strain, which could put his availability for the season opener April 5 against the Chicago Cubs in question. Manager Mike Matheny is open to pushing Wainwright's season debut back a couple of days if the prescribed rest doesn't work. Wainwright will be evaluated early next week.

Fantasy Tip: Wainwright is currently teetering on the edge of fantasy ace utility, and there remains concern about how he'll bounce back from elbow surgery, too. If he doesn't suffer anymore setbacks this spring, there's a good chance he'll be ready to pitch the first week of the season.
