Oct. 2 2:41 PM PT3:41 PM MT4:41 PM CT5:41 PM ET17:41 ET21:41 GMT5:41 2:41 PM MST4:41 PM EST5:11 PM VEN1:41 UAE (+1)4:41 PM CT-Wainwright is scheduled to undergo surgery on his pitching elbow Tuesday. The estimated recovery time of the surgery is six weeks for the right-hander, who underwent Tommy John surgery in 2011.
Analysis: Wainwright went 12-5 but posted a career-worst 5.11 ERA in 23 starts - 24 games - this season. He made his final start Aug. 17 before coming out of the bullpen in his next and last appearance Sept. 23.
Sep. 24 10:21 PM PT11:21 PM MT12:21 AM CT1:21 AM ET1:21 ET5:21 GMT13:21 10:21 PM MST12:21 AM EST12:51 AM VEN9:21 UAE12:21 AM CT-Adam Wainwright allowed one run on three hits and one walk in 2.0 innings as the St. Louis Cardinals lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates 11-6 on Saturday. Wainwright did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 5.11 ERA and 1.50 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Wainwright made his first appearance since leaving an Aug. 17 start at Pittsburgh with an elbow injury. The three-time All-Star will work out of the bullpen for the season's remaining games, therefore his fantasy value is practically nil right now.
Aug. 18 1:19 PM PT2:19 PM MT3:19 PM CT4:19 PM ET16:19 ET20:19 GMT4:19 1:19 PM MST3:19 PM EST3:49 PM VEN0:19 UAE (+1)3:19 PM CT-Wainwright (right elbow impingement) has been activated from the disabled list but will pitch out of the bullpen for the rest of the season.
Analysis: After missing more than a month with the elbow problem, the Cardinals want to limit the innings of the 36-year-old. He had a disappointing 5.12 ERA in 23 starts this year but owns a 12-5 record.
Aug. 18 9:37 PM PT10:37 PM MT11:37 PM CT12:37 AM ET0:37 ET4:37 GMT12:37 9:37 PM MST11:37 PM EST12:07 AM VEN8:37 UAE11:37 PM CT-Adam Wainwright allowed five runs on seven hits and one walk in 3.0 innings as the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates 11-7 on Thursday. Wainwright did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 5.12 ERA and 1.49 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Wainwright again failed to hit 90 mph and didn't strike out a batter, but he extended his unbeaten streak to nine starts (5-0).
Aug. 12 11:13 PM PT12:13 AM MT1:13 AM CT2:13 AM ET2:13 ET6:13 GMT14:13 11:13 PM MST1:13 AM EST1:43 AM VEN10:13 UAE1:13 AM CT-Adam Wainwright improved to 12-5, allowing one run on four hits and three walks in 5.0 innings, as the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Atlanta Braves 8-5 on Friday. Wainwright did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 4.87 ERA and 1.46 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Wainwright said he was dealing with some arm soreness while warming up, but he still kept the Braves in check before being removed after 77 pitches. The veteran righty recently spent some time on the DL with back tightness, so he clearly something of an injury risk right now.
Aug. 6 2:23 PM PT3:23 PM MT4:23 PM CT5:23 PM ET17:23 ET21:23 GMT5:23 2:23 PM MST4:23 PM EST4:53 PM VEN1:23 UAE (+1)4:23 PM CT-Adam Wainwright allowed three runs on four hits and five walks in 3.0 innings as the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Cincinnati Reds 13-4 on Sunday. Wainwright struck out one, ending the game with a 5.00 ERA and 1.46 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Wainwright, who had spent the last 12 days on the DL with a stiff back, threw 39 pitches before retiring a batter. He left after 88 pitches and said he was bothered by a cut on the tip of his finger which impacted his fastball command and velocity.

Analysis: The Cardinals' ace has been solid over the past month, going 4-0 with a 3.29 ERA in his last six starts. He held five of those opponents to two earned runs or less.
July 22 3:52 PM PT4:52 PM MT5:52 PM CT6:52 PM ET18:52 ET22:52 GMT6:52 3:52 PM MST5:52 PM EST6:22 PM VEN2:52 UAE (+1)5:52 PM CT-Adam Wainwright allowed two runs on four hits in 7.2 innings as the St. Louis Cardinals lost to the Chicago Cubs 3-2 on Saturday. Wainwright struck out three, ending the game with a 4.89 ERA and 1.42 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Wainwright was great until the 8th, and that cost him the game. After posting a 9.48 ERA in his first seven road starts, he has a 2.75 ERA in his past three.
July 17 8:27 PM PT9:27 PM MT10:27 PM CT11:27 PM ET23:27 ET3:27 GMT11:27 8:27 PM MST10:27 PM EST10:57 PM VEN7:27 UAE (+1)10:27 PM CT-Adam Wainwright improved to 11-5, allowing three runs - two earned - on six hits and two walks in 5.2 innings, as the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the New York Mets 6-3 on Monday.

Wainwright struck out seven, ending the game with a 5.20 ERA and 1.49 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Wainwright pitched into the seventh for the third time in his last four starts and has allowed two runs or fewer in each of those outings. His 10th win gave him double-digit victories for the ninth time in 12 seasons.
July 3 8:46 PM PT9:46 PM MT10:46 PM CT11:46 PM ET23:46 ET3:46 GMT11:46 8:46 PM MST10:46 PM EST11:16 PM VEN7:46 UAE (+1)10:46 PM CT-Adam Wainwright improved to 9-5, allowing six runs on eight hits and one walk in 5.0 innings, as the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Miami Marlins 14-6 on Monday.

June 29 11:41 PM PT12:41 AM MT1:41 AM CT2:41 AM ET2:41 ET6:41 GMT14:41 11:41 PM MST1:41 AM EST2:11 AM VEN10:41 UAE1:41 AM CT-Wainwright improved to 8-5, allowing two runs on eight hits and one walk in 6.1 innings, as the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-3 on Wednesday.

June 24 8:35 AM PT9:35 AM MT10:35 AM CT11:35 AM ET11:35 ET15:35 GMT23:35 8:35 AM MST10:35 AM EST11:05 AM VEN19:35 UAE10:35 AM CT-Adam Wainwright allowed two runs - one earned - on two hits and two walks in 7.0 innings as the St. Louis Cardinals lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-3 on Friday. Wainwright struck out five, ending the game with a 5.35 ERA and 1.54 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: After being torched for nine runs and three homers in just 1 2/3 innings at Baltimore in his previous start, Wainwright got back to being his usual steady self. The veteran may not be the most appealing play, however, when he next takes the mound Wednesday in Arizona. He's 2-4 with a 9.48 ERA on the road this season.
June 17 8:26 PM PT9:26 PM MT10:26 PM CT11:26 PM ET23:26 ET3:26 GMT11:26 8:26 PM MST10:26 PM EST10:56 PM VEN7:26 UAE (+1)10:26 PM CT-Adam Wainwright fell to 7-5, allowing nine runs on seven hits and one walk in 1.2 innings, as the St. Louis Cardinals lost to the Baltimore Orioles 15-7 on Saturday. Wainwright struck out one, ending the game with a 5.75 ERA and 1.64 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The outing was the shortest of Wainwright's 268 career starts, and he was shelled for nine runs over 3 2/3 innings in his previous road start at Cincinnati. Fortunately his next start comes at home, where he's 5-0 with a 2.78 ERA over his past six assignments.

Wainwright struck out four, ending the game with a 4.73 ERA and 1.56 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Five days after being ripped for nine runs in 3 2/3 innings in a loss at Cincinnati, Wainwright regained the solid form he's shown for most of this season. The veteran righty heads into Saturday's outing at Baltimore with a 5-1 record and a 3.09 ERA over his last six starts.
June 6 7:24 PM PT8:24 PM MT9:24 PM CT10:24 PM ET22:24 ET2:24 GMT10:24 7:24 PM MST9:24 PM EST9:54 PM VEN6:24 UAE (+1)9:24 PM CT-Adam Wainwright fell to 6-4, allowing nine runs on seven hits and three walks in 3.2 innings, as the St. Louis Cardinals lost to the Cincinnati Reds 13-1 on Tuesday.

Analysis: Wainwright retired the last 10 batters he faced as he moved to 10-1 with a 1.56 ERA over his career against Colorado. He also said something unexpected about Coors Field. ''I love pitching here,'' he acknowledged. ''It's as big of a mental challenge as it is a physical challenge. You can very easily let the altitude and the lineup over there, the hotness of those hitters, you can let all that get in your head.

Analysis: Wainwright (0-3, 7.24) surrendered 11 hits over four-plus innings against Washington in his previous start, and opponents are now hitting .393 off him this year. Both of his bad outings have come away from home, and he'll pitch on the road again when the Cards visit Milwaukee on Friday.
