The St. Louis Cardinals have announced they plan on limiting their Ace pitcher Adam Wainwright's workload during Spring Training and that the decision may carry over into the regular season.
Wainwright pitched an average of 222 innings in his past three seasons and underwent elbow surgery after last season. Wainwright expects to be ready for the 2015 season opener against the Chicago Cubs but added he would prefer to get at least four starts this Spring to ensure he is primed for the Opening Day.

Fantasy Impact: This decision is not unexpected as Wainwright comes off of surgery. Depending on how Wainwright handles his recovery, the Cardinals may look to shave his innings down to around 200, which will have the biggest impact on fantasy owners in leagues that place value on Quality Starts and potentially Wins as well.
