News
Cardinals manager Mike Matheny knows relief pitcher Jordan Walden has been used a lot this season, but it's not going to stop him from calling the righty's name this year, reports MLB.com.

Walden has appeared in 11 of the team's first 15 games with an 0-1 record and one save to his record. 

"I'd like to give all of them more rest, but once again this is where we are right now," Matheny said. "The days where they feel good… and there have been a number of days where I told him he can go down there in his tennis shoes because he's not pitching. [It's all] just depending on how the work has been and what he feels like."

Walden boasts a 0.96 ERA with 11 strikeouts and four walks so far this season.

News
Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams struck out twice against Phillies southpaw Cole Hamels Monday, making him 0 for 8 with five strikeouts against lefties this season, MLB.com reports.

"We're giving Matt a chance to keep working and finding something positive to come from some left-handed at-bats. But right now they're hard to come by," manager Mike Matheny said. "Once again, we're not throwing some shabby lefties at him either. He's seeing some tough ones. I know that's frustrating for him."

Adams' other start against a lefty came against Cubs pitcher Jon Lester. If he continues to struggle against lefties, the first baseman could start losing playing time to Mark Reynolds when a southpaw is on the mound.

"You have to give him a chance to go out there and do it, and then we make adjustments as we go," Matheny said. "Depending on what those at-bats look like … and right now Matt's in a tough spot and is going to have to keep working and figure out how to get it done when he has the opportunities."

Adams has hit .232/.283/.357 with two home runs and eight RBI in 56 at-bats.

Injuries
Achilles, ankle - 15-day DL. Likely out for season (Updated - 4/26/15)
News
Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said Monday that pitcher Adam Wainwright has been diagnosed with a torn Achilles in his left foot, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Wainwright will undergo surgery Thursday and miss the remainder of the season, the team announced. He suffered the injury while stumbling out of the batter's box during an at-bat in his last start. The recovery time for the procedure is nine-to-12 months, and the team is optimistic about his return.

Wainwright's season comes to a close after four starts. He went 2-1 with a 1.44 ERA and 18:3 K:BB ratio in 25 innings.

The Cardinals are expected to look internally to fill the rotation hole the injury presents. Marco Gonzales and Jaime Garcia are two long-term options to enter the rotation, but both are currently dealing with injuries.

Molina is dealing with knee soreness after taking a foul tip off his knee guard Friday.

"He's feeling better, but we just need to take at least another day," manager Mike Matheny said, per MLB.com. "He can hit. He can run. But squatting is the issue right now."

The team called up a catcher before Sunday's game to back up Tony Cruz, who is batting eighth Sunday while making his third start in the last four days.

The Cardinals are road favorites (-144) in Milwaukee Sunday, per VegasInsider.com.

News
Matt Carpenter, who had been one of the keys to the Cardinals offense to start the season thanks to his 12-game hitting streak, saw the run come to an end Sunday despite a couple of loud outs. 

Carpenter, who picked up 22 hits over the 12 games, remains fourth in the NL in hitting at .366 with a league-leading 10 doubles. 

"That's why hitting streaks are so hard," Carpenter told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "You have days when you hit balls right at people and you have a day when the pitcher is dictating your at-bats and a day when the umpire is dictating your at-bats. To be honest, that's what it felt like."

News
Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn was rocked in a loss Sunday, allowing six earned runs on 10 hits and one walk in five innings while striking out six in his team's 6-3 defeat against the Brewers.

Lynn (1-2) was facing a Brewers lineup without Carlos Gomez, Ryan Braun, Aramis Ramirez and Scooter Gennett but couldn't find success, giving up three runs on a triple and a home run in the third inning and then allowing three more runs during a fifth inning that featured three doubles.

Lynn's first rough outing of the season gives him a 3.63 ERA and 26:7 K:BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings. He's slated to face the Pirates at home Friday.
