All eyes on Garcia in long-awaited season debut

Now, Jaime Garcia is back to try and earn a spot in the rotation. Garcia takes the mound for the first time in 11 months as the Cardinals go for a third straight win over the New York Mets in the finale of this four-game set Thursday. St. Louis...

Cardinals recall Tuivailala, option Lyons to minors

ST. LOUIS (AP) The Cardinals have added bullpen depth, recalling right-hander Sam Tuivailala from Triple-A Memphis. Lefty Tyler Lyons, who made three starts in the slot formerly held by injured ace Adam Wainwright, was optioned to Memphis, a day after lasting just 3 2-3 innings in a loss to Detroit. The 22-year-old Tuivailala worked two innings of relief in a 14-inning victory over...

Lance Lynn as the Next Max Scherzer

Lance Lynn first received a rotation spot in 2012 when St. Louis’s then-ace Chris Carpenter went down in Spring Training. Lynn inherited the rotation spot vacated by Carpenter, but did not inherit his role as staff ace, into which Adam Wainwright stepped after missing 2011 while recovering from Tommy John surgery. The Cardinals have once […]

Resilient Cardinals coming off first series loss of season

ST. LOUIS -- More than a month into the season, the St. Louis Cardinals finally lost a series. Given their list of injuries, it's remarkable it hadn't happened before. The Cardinals finally got a break Monday after playing 20 consecutive games, going 14-6 during a challenging stretch for the players and the team's training staff. They own the best record in the majors at 22-9 despite...

Fans Clamoring For Hamels.

According to Bernie , due to our recent roster attrition in the pitching staff (IE the loss of Adam Wainwright), many fans are clamoring for the Cards to go out and get Cole Hamels . Bernie seems to disagree with the idea, saying that other teams have more to offer, and trading somebody like Kolten Wong to get him would be nuts. [...]

No Waino? No Carp? No problem as Cardinals keep rolling

The St. Louis Cardinals have thrived despite losing their staff ace two weeks ago. They proved themselves plenty capable of winning without their hottest hitter at the moment, and the NL Central leaders look to continue their surge Saturday against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Since two-time 20-game winner Adam Wainwright suffered a season-ending Achilles injury on April 25, the Cardinals...

Matt Carpenter’s “Fatigue” Sets Up Painful Wait and See Game

Cardinals fans haven’t had it easy this spring when it comes to player injuries. Spring training couldn’t end before Jaime Garcia‘s shoulder barked. Adam Wainwright ruptured his Achilles in late April and early May claimed reliever Jordan Walden with a shoulder strain that knocks him out until July. Today, it was announced by Mike Matheny that third baseman and early season...

Cardinals Use “All Around Game” to Dominate Homestand

Let’s flash back to Monday, April 27th, the first day of the St. Louis Cardinals first extended homestand of 2015. Confirmation came down on Adam Wainwright’s season ending Achilles Heel injury, and Yadier Molina and Jason Heyward were also missing due to injuries.  It was doom and gloom for the N.L. Central division favorites. The Cards lost against Cole Hamels and the Philadelphia...

No Wainwright, disappointing Heyward, but Cardinals are best team in baseball

The Cardinals weren’t supposed to be the best team in the National League this season. The Nationals were a widely popular pick to win the World Series, with the Dodgers looking like the club most likely to give them a run for the pennant. While most seemed to predict St. Louis would win its third consecutive NL Central title and get to the postseason for the fifth year in a row...

Ever since Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright went down to injury after an at-bat, the debate about whether there should be a DH in the National League has been stirred up again. New D-Backs manager Chip Hale gave his thoughts on the Burns and Gambo show on Arizona Sports 98.7 on Tuesday.

SP Prospects to Consider (If Your Pitchers Keep Getting Hurt Like Mine)

This past week has been an interesting one for pitchers. As many have gone down with injuries (Adam Wainwright, Brandon McCarthy, Homer Bailey, and probably more), many newcomers are in line to make their impact. We already saw one highly touted prospect pitch for the Nationals, A.J. Cole, only to surrender four runs on nine hits and one walk in two innings against the Braves last...

St Louis Cardinals: Wainwright impossible to replace

The St. Louis Cardinals must face the grim reality of not having ace Adam Wainwright for the remainder of the 2015 season. Wainwright’s awkward-looking injury while in the batter’s box re-sparked the long-standing debate of bringing the designated hitter to the National League (which Wainwright himself is still against), but it also brought upon another debate that is more internal...

Waiting For Marco Gonzales

Replacing Adam Wainwright is an impossible task for the St. Louis Cardinals (and fantasy owners alike). There may not be a team in baseball better positioned to absorb the loss of an ace, given their starting pitching depth in the minors and track record for producing impact talent in the minor leagues, than St. Louis. However, generating even a modest facsimile of Wainwright’s...

How Will You Remember The Tim Cooney Era?

Today Adam Wainwright was supposed to be on the mound pitching the series finale against the Phillies on a beautiful St. Louis day. Instead he was in post-op, recovering from achilles surgery and a young lefty by the name Tim Cooney was called up from AAA to make his MLB debut to try and plug the hole that Wainwright’s injury left behind.

ST. LOUIS (AP) Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright has had surgery to repair a torn left Achilles tendon, an injury that will sideline him for the rest of the season. ''Everything went well,'' Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said after Thursday's operation. ''No surprises, which was probably the best news, and didn't have to use any extra material to reattach the tendon. So now...

St. Louis Cardinals: Surviving Adam Wainwright’s injury

As learned earlier in the week, the St. Louis Cardinals lost ace Adam Wainwright to an Achilles injury for the season.

The problem for the Cardinals is now who will pick up the slack for the team with his loss. Lance Lynn threw 6 strong innings...

Prospect Profile: Marco Gonzales

Adam Wainwright is done for the year, so the Cardinals will have to dip into their starting pitching depth. At least for now it will be Tim Cooney as a replacement, but the popular opinion is that Marco Gonzales will eventually take that spot in the rotation and run with it. The reason Gonzales may not be an automatic add is that he's currently dealing with an injury of his own...

The designated hitter in the National League. About this time every year, the argument pops up again that the NL should adopt the designated hitter rule, and unite both leagues in the practice.
