  • Adam Wainwright To Open Year On Injured List

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright (groin) will begin the season on the injured list with a groin strain, according to manager Oliver Marmol. Wainwright is expected to be out for multiple weeks after getting injured during a workout with Team USA in the World Baseball Classic on Tuesday. The 41-year-old's already declining fantasy appeal takes another hit to begin the 2023 regular season, but he should be able to make his season debut sometime in April. With Wainwright now on the shelf, Jake Woodford will open the year in St. Louis' starting rotation.

  • Adam Wainwright To Start Game 1 For Team USA

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright will start Game 1 of the World Baseball Classic for Team USA on Saturday night against Team Great Britain. Wainwright hasn't looked good in his first two Grapefruit League starts in spring training, topping out in the upper-80s with his fastball, allowing eight hits and four earned runs while walking one and striking out four in five innings of work. The 41-year-old was apparently dealing with some muscle issues in his back and legs, so it will be interesting to see if he looks any better this weekend against a team that Team USA should be able to beat easily. With his velocity dipping with age in recent seasons, Wainwright isn't very attractive to fantasy managers in what is expected to be the final season of his excellent career.

  • Injuries Affecting Adam Wainwright's Velocity

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright (back, finger) had a burn on his index finger and the skin gave way during his Grapefruit League start on Thursday. He has also been trying to get a muscle in his leg/lower back to engage after experiencing back spasms. The back issue has limited his leg drive and his velocity in camp. The 41-year-old veteran allowed three runs in three innings of work on Thursday against the Houston Astros. He topped out at only 86 mph. Wainwright is set to pitch for Team USA in the World Baseball Classic, but it's fair to wonder if he'll go through with that if he continues to have back issues. This isn't the best news for an aging pitcher that was already experiencing a dip in velocity and strikeout rate as he heads into his 18th and final MLB season.
