Player Notes
Adam Wainwright underwent season-ending surgery Thursday to repair his ruptured left Achilles tendon.

Advice: Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak told Bob Nightengale of USA Today that the surgery was a success and gave Wainwright a 10-12 month recovery timetable. The injury was to Wainwright's landing foot, so the hope is that he will be ready for the beginning of the 2016 season. Tim Cooney is taking over the vacant rotation spot for now, but Marco Gonzales (shoulder) looks like the best long-term bet.

Cardinals transferred RHP Adam Wainwright from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Advice: Wainwright is set to undergo surgery Thursday to repair a torn left Achilles tendon -- a procedure that comes with a recovery timetable of 9-12 months. Cardinals GM John Mozeliak said earlier this week that he's confident the veteran right-hander will be ready for the beginning of the 2016 season. Tim Cooney is getting the first shot at the team's rotation vacancy.

Adam Wainwright will undergo season-ending surgery on Thursday after an MRI confirmed that he suffered a torn left Achilles tendon on Saturday.

Advice: The operation carries a 9-12 month rehab schedule, although Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said Monday that he was optimistic the right would be ready for spring training. Wainwright, who will turn 34 in August, has three years remaining on his contract after 2015. The Cards will go with either Tyler Lyons or Tim Cooney as his replacement in the rotation for now, but Marco Gonzales (shoulder/pectoral) is expected back soon.

Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak confirmed in an interview on KMOX 1120 AM on Sunday that Adam Wainwright (Achilles) is likely done for the season.

Advice: "I would imagine that with this injury he will not pitch again this season, but we want to wait for the reports Monday," the GM said. It's confirmation of an earlier report from FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal as well as what others had speculated. Losing Wainwright is obviously a major hit to the Cards as they seek their third straight division title and fifth straight playoff appearance.

Cardinals placed RHP Adam Wainwright on the 15-day disabled list with a left ankle and Achilles injury.

Advice: Wainwright will undergo an MRI on Monday, but the feeling is that he blew out his Achilles on Saturday and will need season-ending surgery. Tyler Lyons and Tim Cooney are the most likely options to take his spot in the rotation later this week.

Sun, Apr 26 Rotoworld
FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the "expectation" is that Adam Wainwright will miss the rest of the season with a left Achilles injury.

Advice: He's yet to undergo an MRI (that comes Monday), but the Cardinals don't appear to be optimistic about a diagnosis. It's obviously a massive blow for St. Louis, as Wainwright had allayed some concerns about his elbow with a strong start (1.44 ERA) to the season. The club does at least have some depth to fall back on with Marco Gonzales at Triple-A, although he's currently out with a shoulder/pectoral issue. Gonzales and Jaime Garcia (shoulder) are the likely long-term options to replace Waino in the rotation, but for now the club is likely to go with Tyler Lyons or Tim Cooney. They could also consider moving Carlos Villanueva from the bullpen to the rotation.

Adam Wainwright acknowledged after Saturday's game that the injury is to the back of his left ankle.

Advice: In other words, it's his Achilles tendon. And if he ruptured it, the ace right-hander could be done for the rest of the 2015 season. "I thought I got hit by something," said Wainwright, who pulled up lame after a fifth-inning pop-out on Saturday night in Milwaukee. "If you look at the replay, I get out of the box and I looked back to think the catcher’s mask must have hit me or the bat must have hit me, something must have hit me."

Adam Wainwright was lifted from Saturday's game against the Brewers with an apparent left foot injury.

Advice: Wainwright pulled up lame on his first step out of the batter's box following a fifth-inning pop-out and could barely make his way off the field. It looked like an Achilles injury, though the Cardinals are calling it a "left ankle injury" for now. Wainwright had tossed four scoreless innings against Milwaukee, lowering his season ERA to 1.44. He'll be reevaluated back in St. Louis.
