Adam Wainwright to start NL Wild Card game

Adam Wainwright will start for the Cardinals during the National League Wild Card game versus either the Dodgers or Giants next week.

Fantasy Impact

Wainwright has had an outstanding year for the late blooming Cardinals. The 40 year old has recorded a 3.05 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and 7.6 K/9. It seems likely that he'll face Max Scherzer and the Dodgers in that big game.

Adam Wainwright improves to 17-7 with victory, Cards clinch playoffs

Adam Wainwright notched yet another quality start on Tuesday, holding the Brewers to seven hits, two runs, and two walks while striking out four across six innings in a 6-2 win over Milwaukee.

Fantasy Impact

The Cardinals won their franchise-record 17th consecutive game, clinching a spot in the postseason as well, as Wainwright himself picked up his 17th win of the season. A two-run homer by Luis Urias was the only damage on the night against the 40-year-old, who owns an extremely impressive 3.05 ERA and 1.06 WHIP on the season. St. Louis will likely opt to rest him until the National League Wild Card game early next week.

Adam Wainwright struggles early, but Cardinals rally to win 12th straight

Adam Wainwright had a rare rough outing on Thursday, yielding four hits, five runs, and two walks while striking out just one batter in only four innings in a no-decision against the Brewers.

Fantasy Impact

Wainwright scuffled in the first inning, loading the bases (thanks to two walks) before serving up a grand slam to Tyrone Taylor to put the Cardinals in an early 4-0 hole. However, St. Louis rallied in the late innings to come back and win their 12th consecutive game. Wainwright will take a terrific 3.05 ERA and 1.04 WHIP into his final regular season start against these same Brewers next week.

Adam Wainwright holds Padres to two runs over six innings

Adam Wainwright registered yet another quality start on Saturday, his 21st of the season, when he held the mighty Padres lineup to just seven hits and two runs in six innings while striking out two in a no-decision.

Fantasy Impact

Wainwright was looking at a tough-luck loss as the Cardinals trailed 2-1 in the eighth inning before a dramatic Tyler O'Neill home run propelled them to a comeback victory. Wainwright sits at 16-7 on the season with one of the most impressive seasons from a 40-year-old in MLB history, boasting a spectacular 2.89 ERA and 1.03 WHIP. Wainwright has been the absolute definition of "league winner" in fantasy leagues this year given where he was drafted this spring (or not drafted at all). He'll get the Brewers next.

Adam Wainwright spins six scoreless innings against Mets on Monday

Adam Wainwright was at it again on Monday, pitching six shutout innings against the Mets - allowing just four hits and three walks while striking out four and improving to 16-7 on the season with a 7-0 victory.

Fantasy Impact

The 40-year-old wonder trails only Julio Urias (17) - who is 15 years younger - for the most wins in all of baseball. It's been a storybook season for the right-hander who has registered an unbelievable 2.88 ERA and 1.03 WHIP through 190 1/3 innings. Simply amazing. He'll get the Padres at home this weekend.
