Adam Wainwright delivers complete-game shutout for 19th win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Wainwright (19-9) moved into a share of the major-league lead in wins with the gem, tossing just 102 pitches in his nine innings of work. It's his fifth complete game and third shutout of the year. Wainwright owns a 2.45 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 171:49 K:BB ratio in 220 innings. He's slated to take on the Cubs Monday.


Adam Wainwright turns in excellent performance Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/13/2014) Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright turned in an excellent performance Friday against the Rockies.

Wainwright gave up one run on six hits over eight innings. He struck out eight and did not issue a walk during the contest. Wainwright gave up his only run in the third inning. After a leadoff single, Wainwright managed to strike out the next two batters. With two outs, Nolan Arenado belted a double to left, scoring the run from first. The run didn’t seem to have an impact on Wainwright, as he tossed five scoreless innings to end the outing. 

With the win, Wainwright improved to 18-9. He’ll take on the Brewers in his next start. 


Adam Wainwright goes the distance Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright dominated and went the distance against the Brewers on Sunday, limiting hitters one run on seven hits over nine innings to improve to 17-9 on the year. It was his third complete game of the season.

Adam Wainwright serves up three home runs in win Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright picked up a win Tuesday, giving up four earned runs on seven hits and one walk in six-plus innings while striking out three in his team's 6-4 victory over the Pirates.

Wainwright (16-9) was victimized by the long ball in this game, giving up solo home runs in the second and third innings before his night ended on a two-run blast in the seventh. He had surrendered three home runs in his last 15 starts combined, with all three coming in August. Wainwright owns a 2.69 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 153:46 K:BB ratio in 194 innings.

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."


Adam Wainwright picks up a loss


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright had a tough start Friday against the Phillies. 

Wainwright allowed five runs, four earned, on six hits over six innings. He struck out two and walked three during the outing. The Phillies managed to scratch a run across in the first inning, but really got to Wainwright in the third. Wainwright put the first three batters of the inning on base. A groundout brought in the first run of the inning. A single and sac fly drove in the next two runs. With two outs, Wainwright walked Domonic Brown, and gave up another run on a single. 

With the loss, Wainwright dropped to 15-8. He’ll take on the Pirates in his next start.

Adam Wainwright can't win against Marlins Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/12/2014) Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright was unable to pick up a win Tuesday against the Marlins.

Adam Wainwright goes seven scoreless Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright tossed a scoreless start Sunday against the Cubs.

Wainwright gave up five hits during the start. He struck out three and walked three. Wainwright mostly cruised through the start. He did run into some trouble in his final three innings, but was able to pitch around his base-runners. An intentional walk put two men on in the fifth inning, but Wainwright was able to strike out pitcher Kyle Hendricks to end the inning. Two men also reached in the sixth, but Wainwright was able to induce an inning-ending double-play. Two men also reached in the seventh, but Wainwright got out of trouble once again.

With the win, Wainwright improved to 13-5. His next start will come against the Brewers.


Adam Wainwright fails to go five innings Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2014) Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright failed to go five innings Tuesday against the Rays.

Wainwright allowed six runs, four earned, on six hits over 4 2/3 innings. He walked four and struck out four during the outing. Wainwright was actually cruising along until the fifth inning. At that point, he had allowed one run on a sacrifice bunt. 

Wainwright started off the fifth with a walk to Kevin Kiermaier. Two hitters later, Ben Zobrist reached on an error by Wainwright. That’s when things fell apart. Wainwright gave up an RBI double to the next hitter before hitting Evan Longoria with a pitch. Wainwright then walked James Loney, bringing in another run. Yunel Escobar doubled in two more and a Jose Molina ground out drove in the sixth and final run. Wainwright then walked Jake Odorizzi and was removed from the game.

The loss dropped Wainwright to 12-5 on the year. His next start will come against the Cubs.
