Cardinals | Waino gets on the board

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 23:53:21 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright allowed four earned runs, seven hits and a walk with five strikeouts over 5 1/3 innings Wednesday, April 27, against the Arizona Diamondbacks, but it was good enough to pick up his first win of the season. Wainwright has allowed at least three runs in every start this season.

Fantasy Tip: Waino has struggled mightily, and is a shell of himself. He used to be a Top 20 fantasy option at his position, but now he is more of a middle- to back-end rotation guy for fantasy.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright loses again

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 06:01:02 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright allowed three runs on seven hits in six innings against the San Diego Padres Friday, April 22, to suffer his third loss of the season. He struck out two batters and walked one during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Wainwright has struggled so far this season and has allowed 15 runs in the last three games. He also has only nine strikeouts in four starts. He is scheduled to face the Arizona Diamondbacks in his next start, and owners could consider benching him if they have another pitcher with a favorable matchup.

Cardinals | Another rough outing for Adam Wainwright

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 15:03:53 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright was tagged for season highs in runs (seven) and hits (10) over 5 1/3 innings on Saturday, April 16, in a loss to the Cincinnati Reds.

Fantasy Tip: About the only good thing to come out of this outing was that Wainwright walked one after issuing five free passes in his previous turn. The 34-year-old should be expected to turn it around sooner than later, but he's had trouble spotting his breaking pitches in 2016. Although owners should feel a bit leery about starting him yet again next week, it is very much worth noting he'll face the San Diego Padres' up-and-down offense in his next scheduled outing on Friday.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright allows five runs Sunday

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 15:23:26 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright allowed five runs in five innings Sunday, April 10, in a 12-7 win over the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Two starts in a row that were either mediocre or bad may have Cardinals fans pausing for concern. Keep in mind he is still recovering from Achilles surgery, and it has been a year since he has thrown a pitch as a starter. You may want to seek other options for the moment, but Wainwright should rebound.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright struggles in opener

Sun, 03 Apr 2016 14:04:27 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright gave up three runs in six innings, walking three and striking out three in his first regular season start since tearing his Achilles last April. Wainwright took the loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates, 4-1.

Fantasy Tip: Wainwright got absolutely no help from the St. Louis batters in this game, and he looked a little rusty in his 2016 debut. It's way too early to push the panic button, however. Wainwright still ranks as a key starter on your fantasy roster.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright rusty

Mon, 07 Mar 2016 10:40:17 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright said his arm feels better than in the last two years, but he allowed two hits and three walks in two scoreless innings in spring training Monday, March 7.

Fantasy Tip: At age 34 and coming off a lost year due to injury, Waino certainly is no longer a fantasy ace. However, he's fully healthy and continues to have elite control of all of his pitches. A drop in dominance is about the only thing you need to worry about. Wainwright is a solid third fantasy starter.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright feels great

Tue, 23 Feb 2016 09:18:25 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright said his arm feels "amazing" this spring. He was limited to just 28 innings in 2015 because of an Achilles' injury.

Fantasy Tip: Health and now injury concern moves Waino off the elite tier of starting pitching. He also has questions about lack of strikeouts, but his elite concern should silence those questions. Select him as your third fantasy starter and feel comfortable with it.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright to start season opener

Sun, 21 Feb 2016 09:35:16 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said SP Adam Wainwright will be the team's Opening Day starter against the Pittsburgh Pirates April 3, barring any setbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Wainwright made just seven regular-season appearances and tossed 28 innings while missing most of 2015 due to a ruptured Achilles' tendon. However, the 34-year-old right-hander should once again be an elite fantasy option if he is healthy, since his arm wasn't affected by the injury.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright working on changeups

Mon, 15 Feb 2016 14:03:20 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright had manager Mike Matheny stand in as a hitter during a light bullpen session Monday, Feb. 15. Wainwright sought feedback on the two changeups he's been working on: a four-seam and two-seam grip.

Fantasy Tip: Wainwright missed most of 2015 with a ruptured Achilles' tendon, but he seemed to be no worse for wear upon his return last September, as he allowed two earned runs in six relief appearances spanning 8 1/3 innings (including postseason). The otherwise durable three-time All-Star should once again serve as the ace for a strong St. Louis rotation and could easily return to being an elite fantasy option if he stays healthy this season.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright wearing sleeve on knee

Mon, 15 Feb 2016 10:39:47 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright (knee) is wearing a protective sleeve on the knee that he hyperextended last year. He will remove it when he starts running full speed in spring training.

Fantasy Tip: A devastating Achilles' injury ruined Waino's 2015 season. Despite a lack of dominance and strikeouts, his elite control will keep him relevant for fantasy owners as a perfect third starter.
