St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright will not take the mound again this season, according to manager Oli Marmol. That means, the 42-year-old will his career on a high note. He recorded his 200th career win after throwing seven scoreless frames versus the Milwaukee Brewers during his last start. He'll finish the season with a 7.40 ERA, 1.90 WHIP and a 55/41 K/BB ratio across 101 innings in his 21 starts. It's not the ideal season to have to end your career, but at least his last game on the mound was a success.
St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright hit a historical milestone in Monday's 1-0 win over the Brewers, earning his 200th career win. The 42-year-old turned back the clock, pitching seven innings while allowing four hits and two walks with three strikeouts. Wainwright's season has not reflected his stellar career and he will retire at the end of this season, so this achievement has been a true highlight. He is now the fifth active MLB pitcher in the 200-win club. Wainwright has spent all 18 seasons with the Cardinals and spent the majority of his career as a dominant fantasy starter.
St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright will have his next start on Sunday pushed back until Thursday. The 42-year-old pitched well during his last outing, but indicated afterwards he wasn't feeling good on the mound. The Cardinals will give the veteran pitcher some more rest, so Zack Thompson will start on Sunday. Thompson was decent during his last start, but isn't a reliable streaming option. Fantasy managers desperate for pitching help could look at Thompson as a possible option against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday.
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.
