Adam Wainwright (elbow) has surgery

Adam Wainwright underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Wainwright suffered through a brutal fantasy season in 2017, posting a 5.11 ERA with a 1.50 WHIP. He should be fully healthy for Spring Training next year, but isn't going to be a fantasy option early in the season.

Adam Wainwright notches 12th win

Adam Wainwright allowed one run over five innings on Friday in a win over the Braves. He gave up four hits and walked three, and did not strike out a batter. The win moved Wainwright to 12-5 on the season.

Fantasy Impact

Wainwright still has a 4.87 ERA and 1.46 WHIP on the season, but he's been "relatively" effective for several starts now. The issue for Wainwright is that even in his good starts, he offers almost no strikeouts, and so will never be worth the risk of a potential blowup.

Adam Wainwright gives up three runs in three innings

Adam Wainwright threw only three innings Sunday giving up three runs on five hits, walking five and striking out only one batter. He didn't factor into the decision.

Fantasy Impact

This was a very bad night for Wainwright. He's lucky the Cardinals offence bailed him out on this one. It looks like the wheels are falling off and Wainwright should be avoided from here on out.

Adam Wainwright to DL with back injury

Adam Wainwright has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a stiff back.

Fantasy Impact

Considering there was no previous word of the injury or poor performance from Wainwright, it would appear that the veteran SP shouldn't be out for long. It appears top prospect Luke Weaver will be recalled to take over Wainwright's place in the starting rotation.

Adam Wainwright pitches well in win over Mets

Adam Wainwright allowed three runs (two earned) over 5 2/3 innings in Monday's win over the Mets. He gave up six hits and walked two while striking out three.

Fantasy Impact

Despite a 5.08 ERA on the season, Wainwright now has 11 wins on the season and 92 strikeouts over 102 2/3 innings. He has little fantasy value outside of those two categories, however, and draws the Cubs in his next start.
