|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|

Cubs, Cardinals postponed Tuesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/7/15) Tuesday's game between the Cubs and Cardinals has been postponed due to the forecast of rain and sub-freezing wind chills throughout the evening, the Cubs announced.
A makeup date for Tuesday's postponement has yet to be scheduled, but it is likely to come in July or September rather than this week. Jake Arrieta and Lance Lynn were the scheduled starters for Tuesday's matchup.
Lynn has been named the starter for Wednesday's series finale against the Cubs. The Cardinals will keep the rotation in line moving forward, with John Lackey, Michael Wacha and Carlos Martinez on tap to face the Reds this weekend. Adam Wainwright is now scheduled to take the mound for the team's home opener Monday against the Brewers.
Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright dominant in opener
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/5/15) Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright showed off his impressive skills Sunday in St. Louis' Opening Day win over the Cubs 3-0. Wainwright went six strong innings in the outing, allowing no runs with five hits and six strikeouts.
Wainwright kept Chicago off the scoreboard despite allowing two doubles to open the first two frames of the game. He also didn't allow a walk in the contest.
Cardinals finalize rotation plans for start of season
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/1/15) The Cardinals announced Wednesday starting pitcher Lance Lynn will start the second game of the season on April 7 against the Cubs. It was already previously announced Adam Wainwright would start the season opener Sunday against the Cubs.
John Lackey will then finish out the Chicago series April 8. Michael Wacha will open a three-game series April 10 at Cincinnati, and he will be followed by Carlos Martinez before the rotation resets.
Lynn is on track to start the home opener on April 13 against the Brewers.
|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.
