More Bad news on Wainwright.... if it's true i may be forced to drop him, I don't have the DL spots to have him take up a roster spot if he's going to come back in August... and when he does it'll be still a lingering issue
Anyone else heard anything? I hope the below is just speculation!
From "Wizard of Oz" (a fantasy baseball site):
There’s all kinds of bad news on the Adam Wainwright front. Two days ago the Post-Dispatch ran a story about the possibility of his finger injury staying with him for longer than expected:
“Lingering is the problem,” said Wainwright, who is 6-3 with a 3.14 ERA in 13 starts. “I cannot have this become a problem that I’m always dealing with. I know that. But I’m like this attack dog tied up. I want to get back on the field, get off the bench, but every time I jump at something I get strangled by this chain. I can’t believe I’m out with a finger injury. â€¦
“I also can’t risk pushing it (too) fast.”
And now Viva el Birdos is reporting Wainwright will not return to the team around the All-Star break, as initially expected.
hereâ€™s a bit of news from a trustworthy source: the cards now view wainwright as being ready in no sooner than 6 weeks — could be longer, depending on how things progress. they do expect him back before the end of the year. 6 weeks from today would place wainwright back on the mound in the first week of august . . . .
For every Brett Myers there's a Nate McLouth...
