Cardinals’ Pitcher Adam Wainwright Likely Headed To The Disabled List Again

Published

on

After making his return to the St. Louis Cardinals’ rotation on Sunday, Adam Wainwright might be going right back on the disabled list due to right elbow soreness.

Wainwright, 36, started for the Cardinals on Sunday against the San Diego Padres. It was his first start in nearly a month. Wainwright was placed on the 10-day DL on April 22 with inflammation in his right elbow. He lasted just 2.1 innings on Sunday in San Diego and allowed two earned runs on three hits while giving up six walks.

During his short outing against the Padres, Wainwright’s velocity was noticeably down. According to Joe Trezza of MLB.com, Wainwright was having problems with his right elbow again during the start.

Although nothing is official yet, it seems very likely that Wainwright will have to spend more time on the DL. He also experienced pain in his right elbow last season, and missed about a month late in the year because of the injury. In the offseason, he had surgery on his right elbow to remove a cartilage flap. Unfortunately, it looks Wainwright is dealing with a lingering injury in his pitching elbow. At his age, this could be something that shortens his career.

Hopefully, Wainwright will be able to recover from his latest injury. For now, the Cardinals’ rotation will have to survive without him.
