Tommy John for Wainwright?

Postby kaiser » Wed Feb 23, 2011 11:10 am

Looks like Adam Wainwright may be out for the season... here's the info from Rotoworld:

Cardinals officials believe Adam Wainwright will likely need Tommy John surgery.
What a shame. We won't know anything definitive until later today, but baseball could be without one of the game's best pitchers for at least the next year. Wainwright, 29, has finished in the top three of the NL Cy Young balloting in each of the past two seasons. The Cardinals will find it very difficult to stay in contention without him. Wainwright's options for 2012 and 2013 were triggered by his finish in the Cy Young voting, but the contract stipulated that he must finish the 2011 season healthy and not on the team's disabled list.

Just awful..... :~( :-t :~(

I was relying on him to be my ACE keeper @ $18 (final year of his contract) now I will have to let him go, and keep someone else, or go looking for a trade.

Just goes to show you......always and always go for the BAT over the ARM.

He's on his way back to STL to be evaluated. It does not sound good.

The Adam Wainwright will require Tommy John surgery. So obviously, he'll be out for the year," Mozeliak said.
Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright will require Tommy John surgery to repair his elbow and he will miss the entire 2011 season, the club confirmed this.
