Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha moves to 7-0 in win on Sunday

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/24/15) Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha allowed one run, unearned, on five hits in seven innings of work in Sunday's 6-1 win over the Royals.

Wacha cruised throughout his start, expect for one issue in the fifth. Alex Gordon was able to reach safely on a throwing error and advanced to second base. Salvador Perez then singled him home for Kansas City's only run of the game. Wacha, now 7-0, recorded four strikeouts with two walks in the contest. 

"I missed with a couple of fastballs in," Wacha said to MLB.com. "I knew I didn't want to go 3-0 on him, so I just had to try and paint the inside corner. Luckily, I got it in there enough."

Wacha will look to keep things rolling Saturday against the Dodgers.

"We continue to watch him improve," manager Mike Matheny said. "We've watched Michael be very special in some big situations as a young pitcher. As he has been able to add confidence and add pitches ... we're watching him take advantage. We just want to keep him moving in a positive direction and thinking about what's the next step."

Cardinals not concerned yet about Michael Wacha's innings

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/24/15) Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha is scheduled to take the hill again on Sunday against the Royals, his ninth start of the season. Wacha has already logged 50 1/3 innings of work, something the team wants to monitor very closely throughout the season, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

"It's probably something to look at later," said Matheny. "Right now, we don't want him to be concerned with that stuff. And I don't think right now is the time to conserve. I seems like this game shows you when it’s time to conserve.

"We'll monitor his workload as much as possible but when he's throwing the ball well and he feels as good as he does, we need to take advantage of it. But we have some parameters in sight of where we’d like to keep him at."

Wacha, 6-0, has a 2.13 ERA with 31 strikeouts so far this season. 

Cardinals SP Michael Wacha joins Colon, Felix with six wins

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/20/15) Cardinals starting pitcher Michael Wacha improved to 6-0 during a 10-2 rout of the Mets on Tuesday, joining Bartolo Colon and Felix Hernandez as the only pitchers in the majors with six wins.

The right-hander allowed two runs on four hits and two walks in seven innings. He struck out five. His only real blemish of the game was allowing a two-run homer to Daniel Murphy in the fourth inning.

Wacha has allowed more than two earned runs just once in eight starts.

"I think he's a better pitcher," manager Mike Matheny said, per MLB.com. "I think he was a guy like a lot of the young pitchers we bring up who was a two-pitch pitcher with a real good fastball and a changeup. The curveball is a legitimate pitch now, and so is the cutter.

"He's improved. I think he's just getting a better idea of how to use his stuff each night, and he's adjusting real well. [Catcher] Yadi [Molina] is a great help, too, to figure out what's good that day and ride it out."

Cardinals RHP Michael Wacha performs well against Indians

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/14/15) Cardinals stud starter Michael Wacha pitched like one Thursday in Cleveland. But he didn't pitch like one for long enough.

The Indians used patience at the plate to make Wacha throw 105 pitches in five-plus innings, after which he was removed in a no-decision.

Wacha worked out of jams to keep the Indians down to one run on five hits. He walked two and struck out seven. He allowed a home run to Michael Brantley and double to Brandon Moss to start the sixth, forcing his removal.

He was saved from his first defeat when his team took the lead in the eighth.

Wacha will try to raise his record to 6-0 and lower a fine 2.06 ERA next Tuesday against the host Mets.

Cardinals mull six-man rotation, prefer Garcia to Gonzales

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/10/15) The Cardinals are considering moving to a six-man rotation to help battle the loss of ace Adam Wainwright, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

"It’s not something we would rule out," general manager John Mozeliak said Saturday. "It’s something we’ve talked about, but we haven’t decided if that’s the best option for us. It’s something I think a lot about, and I know (manager) Mike (Matheny) and (pitching coach Derek Lilliquist) do too. It’s on the table."

With Michael Wacha and Carlos Martinez not being ticketed for 200-inning seasons, the team is considering whether to roll out a six-man rotation or to go with a five-man rotation and periodically skip starts of the two younger pitchers while giving others spot starts in their place. However, a six-man rotation could throw off the routines of Lance Lynn and John Lackey. If the team does opt for a five-man rotation, Jaime Garcia is the preferred long-term option over Marco Gonzales.

"If Jaime is good to go, we’ll try to find a spot in the rotation for him," Mozeliak said. "When he’s been healthy, Jaime has been a very good pitcher."

Garcia is set to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Memphis Sunday.
