Player Notes
Michael Wacha is being skipped Wednesday against the Nationals as a way to limit his innings.

Advice: St. Louis took the first two of three games versus the visiting Nats on Monday and Tuesday, so Tyler Lyons is going to start instead of Wacha in Wednesday night's series finale. Wacha was limited to 107 major league innings in 2014 due to shoulder issues. This looks like a smart move for the Cardinals both in the short term and long term.

Michael Wacha has been scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday night against the Nationals.

Advice: Tyler Lyons is going to take the hill instead. No word yet on the reason for bumping Wacha, but it could be similar to the Cardinals' decision to skip Carlos Martinez on Tuesday. That was more of a workload protection thing here in early September, though the Cardinals claimed publicly that Martinez had a sore back. Wacha was spotted flying model planes in the Busch Stadium outfield on Wednesday afternoon. All is well.

Michael Wacha allowed four unearned runs over six innings in Friday's no-decision against the Giants.

Advice: The runs all came on Marlon Byrd's grand slam, which followed errors from Matt Carpenter and Jhonny Peralta to set things up in the third. Wacha barely escaped that inning, giving up two singles after the homer, but he was perfectly fine otherwise.
