Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright: I have no doubts about elbow


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/11/2014) Cardinals right-hander Adam Wainwright, who is set to start the National League Championship Series opener Saturday night against San Francisco, has dismissed concerns about his right elbow.

Wainwright skipped a start in June with a sore elbow. He also dealt with what was described as a "dead arm" period in August. He was clobbered for six runs on 11 hits in 4 1/3 innings in his lone NL Division Series outing. That matched his shortest stint of the season. He even admitted elbow discomfort in that performance, but he has expressed no worries.

"I can be very honest about this because I've been through it," he told MLB.com. "When I took a game off [in June], I aggravated my elbow, and it's the backside of my elbow. So the elbow-fearing world can know it's not my ligament. ... And after that, it goes on the mend and gets better and better progressively.

"The other day, I aggravated that same spot on the backside of my elbow, and now I'm on the mend, and I can feel something. I'm very confident about it because I felt that before, the same exact thing. I was able to recover very well from it. I have no doubts going into [Game 1]."


Cardinals Adam Wainwright says elbow issue 'overblown'


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright said his elbow issue is "overblown" heading into the NLCS, according to ESPN.

There's been some doubt concerning Wainwright's health in the postseason. He attempted to push those worries aside Friday. "It's fine…the problem I have is being way overblown. I'll be fine to pitch like I always do," he said. Wainwright will start Game 1 against the Giants. 


Adam Wainwright ready to start Game 1 of NLCS for Cardinals


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) The Cardinals announced starting pitcher Adam Wainwright will start in Game 1 of the NLCS against the Giants. He will be followed by Lance Lynn, John Lackey and Shelby Miller, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Cardinals coach Mike Matheny said Wainwright is perfectly fine heading into the NLCS. There was concern Lynn might have had to start the NLCS opener, if Wainwright was unavailable due to soreness or stiffness.


Lance Lynn ready if Adam Wainwright can't go


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2014) Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn will be an option for a potential Game 5 start in the NLDS or possibly a start in Game 1 of the NLCS if Adam Wainwright is unavailable due to soreness or stiffness, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

"Just making sure that Waino feels right," manager Mike Matheny said Tuesday as the Cardinals prepared to face the Dodgers in Game 4. "We’ve got two guys on regular rest; it wouldn’t be a stretch to have either one of them go. There’s no question that Waino has been fighting it. I haven’t made that a secret, and neither has he. It’s all going to come down to how he feels. The likelihood of him saying, ‘I can’t go’ is very slim. But it is a possibility that something might not feel right."

Wainwright surrendered six earned runs in Game 1 of the NLDS while pitching just 4 1/3 innings. Lynn surrendered two runs in six innings while striking out eight in Game 3.


Adam Wainwright allows six runs in Game 1 of NLDS


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright didn't factor into the decision Friday, giving up six earned runs on 11 hits and one walk in just 4 1/3 innings while striking out five in his team's 10-9 win over the Dodgers in Game 1 of the National League Division Series.

Wainwright pitched a pair of scoreless innings before giving up two runs each in the third, fourth and fifth frames. He gave up multiple hits in each inning, with the last hit coming on a two-run home run to A.J. Ellis to put the Dodgers up 6-1. However, the Cardinals offense was able to get to Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw, ultimately taking the lead in the seventh.

Wainwright is likely to pitch Game 5 Thursday if the series extends that far, though the Cardinals could choose to bring him back on short rest for Game 4 Tuesday if faced with an elimination scenario.

Don't freak out about Adam Wainwright


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/27/2014) If you weren't already annoyed by Adam Wainwright's struggles -- his latest loss Wednesday makes him 3-5 with a 4.68 ERA in eight starts since the All-Star break -- his explanation for those struggles might be enough to put you over the top. He told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch he's going through a "dead arm phase," adding "one of these days it's going to click in, and its going to be real nice."

"Dead arm" is a fun little catch-all pitchers use to explain their struggles to the media. That's a cynical way of putting it, but you get the idea: It means almost nothing to you as a Fantasy owner. Occasionally, it's a precursor to injury, but more often, as Wainwright suggests, the pitcher eventually gets over it and we all live happily ever after.

Since the All-Star break, Wainwright's velocity and strikeout rate are slightly down, but hey, he has dead arm. All things considered, he's not doing so bad -- four of his last five starts have been quality starts -- so I wouldn't even move to bench him unless something more specific comes up.

He gave no indication he wouldn't pitch through the dead arm, so it must not be that bad.


Adam Wainwright: Dead arm to blame for struggles


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2014) Struggling Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright has blamed a dead arm for his recent problems, the latest of which came in a loss Wednesday in Pittsburgh.

Wainwright managed a quality start, but took the loss after yielding three earned runs on eight hits in six innings with one walk and five strikeouts.

The end of August could not come too soon for Wainwright. He has given up 22 earned runs in his last 38 1/3 innings pitched covering six starts. He is 2-4 during that stretch as his ERA has soared from 1.92 to 2.52.

"I've been through a dead arm phase," Wainwright told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "Everybody does that. You have to find a way to get outs. Most of the time today I found ways to get outs. It's not pretty. ... One of these days it's going to click in, and its going to be real nice."
