|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/31/15) Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright has been named the Opening Day starter for Sunday's game against the Cubs, reports MLB.com.

|(3/31/15) Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright gave up two runs (one earned) on eight hits in 6 2/3 innings pitched Tuesday in his final spring training start. Wainwright also added one walk and two strikeouts to his totals.

Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright struggles in loss Thursday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(3/26/15) Making his second spring training appearance, Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright received the loss during Thursday's game against the Marlins.
Wainwright started the game and threw 3 1/2 innings, but surrendered six hits for four runs. He struck out two batters and walked one. He also gave up a solo home run to Giancarlo Stanton.
Despite his struggles during the game, Wainwright said he was encouraged with how the start ended, reports MLB.com.
"I was driving the ball for the first time all spring," Wainwright said. "It was the best I've felt all spring. I know it's not against hitters, but it translates for me... Those [extra pitches] were very productive. I went from being kind of frustrated by the way I pitched to when I left that cage thinking, 'I'm ready for next time."
Wainwright will make his final spring start in five days and said he'll treat as a regular-season game.
"There were plenty of times today where I probably would have normally thrown a cutter or a hook, and I threw a changeup or a fastball," Wainwright said. "In my next bullpen session, I'll put a little more into it. Then in a game, I'll go into it like a normal regular-season game."
Cardinals' Adam Wainwright goes four scoreless in spring debut
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|

Wainwright gave up four hits and walked a batter while striking out three of the 16 batters he faced.
Cardinals' Adam Wainwright will make spring debut on Saturday
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/17/15) Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright has been penciled in to make his Grapefruit League debut on Saturday against Atlanta, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Wainwright has been sidelined from game action all spring because of an abdominal strain he suffered in February. The right-hander completed a 50-pitch simulated game against minor-leaguers on Monday and was deemed game-ready.
Wainwright posted a 2.38 ERA over 227 innings in 2014.
|2014 summary: Two-time Cy Young runner-up Adam Wainwright was more brilliant than ever to begin 2014, earning an All-Star game start with a 12-4 record, 1.83 ERA and 0.91 WHIP. But that game was his undoing. He got knocked around then and continued to get knocked around, at least by his standards, in nine starts thereafter, allowing three earned runs or more in seven of them for a 4.82 ERA. A strong September should ease concerns a bit, especially since he still finished with a career-best 2.38 ERA.|
Playing time status: That bumpy nine-start stretch isn't Wainwright's only red flag. His average fastball velocity and strikeout rate both declined from 2013, the latter to its lowest since 2008. Neither was anything drastic, but for a pitcher recently removed from Tommy John surgery who has piled up a huge number of innings in the three years since and battled elbow inflammation during a season in which he hit a clear rough patch, it's worrisome. Wainwright did have cartilage trimmed in the elbow this offseason, so maybe that takes care of it.
2015 outlook: Are all of these concerns for Wainwright enough for you to pass him over as your ace on Draft Day? Well, he ranked fifth in both Head-to-Head and Rotisserie leagues in 2014, and you wouldn't want to take him that high, but once you get to Zack Greinke/Cole Hamels territory, the reward outweighs the risk.
