Adam Wainwright returning in 2023

Long-time St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright will return to the team for the 2023 season.

Fantasy Impact

As has been the case over the last few seasons, Wainwright's future has been a year-to-year decision. That decision has apparently been made as he gets set to return for his 18th MLB season, all spent with the Cardinals. Even at 41, Wainwright remains a solid fantasy option on the heels of a 2022 campaign that saw him turn in a 3.71 ERA and 11 wins across 32 starts.
