Adam Wainwright News
St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright struggled on Sunday in his start against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The veteran gave up six hits, four earned runs, and three walks in three innings of work against the National League West winners. He didn't surrender a home run on the day, but only had one strikeout, five swinging strikes, and a 15% CSW rate. For the season, Wainwright has logged a 3.51 ERA and a 3.62 in 187 innings for St. Louis. He's logged 139 strikeouts compared to 52 walks allowed.
St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright turned in a nice rebound start in Monday's 9-0 win over the Marlins. Wainwright pitched 7 innings, allowing seven hits and a walk with nine strikeouts. The veteran has been a reliable fantasy starter overall once again this season, going 6-5 with a 3.07 ERA, 7.52 K/9 rate, and 2.57 BB/9 rate over 15 starts and 91 IP. The strikeout rate may not be all that impressive, but the number of innings Wainwright pitches allows him to contribute in that counting category even in roto leagues. Waino will look to turn in another strong start in a tougher matchup at the Phillies.
St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright pitched well in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Padres. He took a no-decision, tossing seven shutout frames with a walk and 10 strikeouts. The 40-year-old is enjoying another strong season and is now 5-4 with a 2.75 ERA, 48 strikeouts and 20 walks over his first 10 starts. He will look to keep things going in his next start against the Cubs.
St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright has shown no signs of slowing down, and the veteran right-hander continues to put hitters away. He posted a 22-10 record, 3.08 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, 3.66 FIP, and 228 strikeouts over 272 innings over the last two seasons. The 40-year-old relied on his sinker and kept his walks down, evidenced by last season's 6 BB%, which was 83rd in percentile rankings. St. Louis believes he can repeat his 2020 and 2021 numbers and rewarded him with a one-year, $17 million extension this offseason. He doesn't have elite velocity but reduced his HR:9 from 1.23 in 2020 to 0.92 in 2021. His opponent's BAIP dropped from .319 in 2019 to .256 last season. Cutter projects Wainwright to post a 3.71 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, 19 quality starts, and 158 strikeouts over 191 innings. According to Rotoballer's Expected Draft Values, the veteran is roughly fair value at his ADP of 169. Wainwright should add stability; with a great defense behind him, fantasy managers should expect double-digit wins and solid ratios from the Cardinals ace in 2022.
