Adam Wainwright rolls along with seven strong innings, picks up another win

Adam Wainwright continued his terrific 2021 season on Tuesday, pitching seven strong innings and allowing just four hits, two runs, and two walks while striking out eight in a win over Cleveland.

Fantasy Impact

A two-run home run by Jose Ramirez was the only damage against the 39-year-old veteran. After a surprisingly strong 2020 season, the right-hander has continued his career resurgence in 2021 and now owns a stellar 3.51 ERA and 1.11 WHIP on the year with an 8-6 record. He certainly should be rostered in all fantasy leagues and will do battle with the Braves early next week in his next start.

Adam Wainwright spins seven terrific innings in no-decision on Wednesday

Adam Wainwright pitched seven innings of one-run ball on Wednesday night, allowing just six hits and striking out five in a no-decision.

Fantasy Impact

An RBI triple by Rafael Ortega was the only damage against Wainwright, who lowers his season ERA to 3.56 on the year to go with an impressive 1.13 WHIP. The 39-year-old veteran pitched extremely well in the shortened 2020 season and has carried that over into 2021 as well. He's certainly pitching well enough to be rostered in all fantasy leagues heading into an interleague matchup in Cleveland next week.

Adam Wainwright gives up four runs in loss to Giants on Friday

Adam Wainwright pitched six innings on Friday, giving up five hits, four earned runs, and a walk in a loss to San Francisco. Wainwright struck out seven while falling to 7-6 on the season.

Fantasy Impact

Wainwright did a good job keeping runners off the base paths but was done in by two home runs, first a solo shot to Mike Yastrzemski in the first inning followed by a back-breaking three-run homer by LaMonte Wade Jr. in the fifth that accounted for all the scoring against the veteran right-hander. Wainwright still owns a solid 3.71 ERA and 1.15 WHIP and will look to get back into the win column next week against the Cubs.

Adam Wainwright labors through five innings in win over San Francisco

Adam Wainwright allowed six hits, three earned runs, and four walks across only five innings while striking out three in a win over the Giants on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

The veteran right-hander wasn't sharp but found a way to navigate through trouble for most of the game while picking up his seventh win of the season. The 39-year-old Wainwright will take a surprisingly impressive 7-5 record, 3.58 ERA, and 1.15 WHIP into the All-Star break.

Adam Wainwright conquers Coors Field in no-decision on Thursday

Adam Wainwright was terrific on Thursday night, scattering six hits, two earned runs, and a walk across eight strong innings in a no-decision against the Rockies. He added four strikeouts as well.

Fantasy Impact

A two-run homer by Brendan Rodgers was the only damage against the veteran right-hander who exited the game with the score tied 2-2 after eight innings before the Rockies would go on to win with a walk-off homer in the bottom of the ninth inning. The 39-year-old curveball-specialist has re-emerged as a viable mixed-league fantasy option this season and will take an impressive 3.49 ERA into a start against the Giants in San Francisco next week.
