Adam Wainwright allows three runs in return Thursday

Adam Wainwright allowed three runs on six hits over 5 1/3rd innings in the Cardinals' 7-6 extra innings loss to the Marlins. He walked one and struck out six in the no-decision.

Fantasy Impact

This was Wainwright's first start off the injured list, so he can get something of a pass for an underwhelming outing. Still, owners should expect more against a team like the Marlins, and if Wainwright can't pitch better against this team he isn't going to be trustworthy in other matchups. His next start comes Wednesday vs. Oakland.

Adam Wainwright placed on 10-day injured list

Wainwright (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

This move shouldn't come as much of a surprise, as there were speculations that Wainwright would be headed to the IL after his removal from Sunday's game. It's not clear at this time if Wainwright will miss more than one start. Daniel Ponce de Leon is the likely candidate to replace Wainwright in the rotation. Reliever Ryan Helsley was promoted to the big leagues in a corresponding move.

Adam Wainwright delivers eight scoreless in win Sunday

Adam Wainwright pitched eight scoreless innings and improved to 5-5 in the Cardinals' 2-1 win over the Cubs on Sunday. He allowed two hits, seven walks, and struck out eight.

Fantasy Impact

Some people might consider this a good start, and it technically was from a results perspective, but one should never look at a seven-walk outing as encouraging. Wainwright was lucky the Cubs' couldn't hit a curveball to save their life today, because he only had a 55% strike rate and used 126 pitches to make it through eight. Sell high, if anyone's buying. His next start comes Saturday at the Cubs.

Adam Wainwright earns fourth win of the season against Royals

Adam Wainwright allowed three runs on six hits and four walks over five innings on Wednesday against the Royals. He struck out two and earned the win, moving to 4-4 on the year.

Fantasy Impact

It was hardly an impressive outing by Wainwright, but backed by some early run support from his offense, he did what he needed to do. The veteran now has a 4.81 ERA and 1.41 WHIP, hardly mixed-league caliber numbers but enough to survive in NL-only leagues. He will take on the Phillies in his next time out.
