SP - STL
Expert NoteView More Notes
Typically when a 34 year old starting pitcher posts a 4.62 ERA after a long career, you throw your hands up and call his career over. Wainwright isn't your typical 35-year-old. He is now 22 months away from Tommy John, and remember, his 2nd season after his first full year missed, his ERA dropped from 3.94 to 2.94. The same could happen again this year.

Adam Wainwright solid in final spring start
Adam Wainwright continued to distance himself from his disastrous start to his spring in a rematch with the Mets on Tuesday. Earlier this spring the Mets pummeled Wainwright to score ten runs in 1 and 2/3 innings, but the veteran responded with a strong performance in the rematch. Wainwright scattered five hits and three runs over five innings against a Mets lineup consisting of majority opening day starters.
All three runs allowed by Wainwright in his final start came from a Lucas Duda three-run home run in the 4th inning. What is most encouraging, however, is the improved control demonstrated in his final tune-up. Wainwright did not allow any free passes this time out after struggling with command in the early part of spring. Wainwright may not be the Cy Young contender he once was, but he could be a nice addition to round out your fantasy rotation. With an ADP ~200, he could be a decent value add at the end of your draft to provide reliable innings in 2017.
