Player Notes
Michael Wacha allowed six hits and one run over six innings in Saturday's win over the Cubs.

Advice: Wacha could have pitched deeper into the game but the Cardinals already had a comfortable lead. The lanky right-hander ranks second in the National League with ten wins and is eighth in ERA (2.77). He's been the best pitcher on the best team in baseball. He's a shoe-in for next month's All-Star Game in Cincinnati.

Cardinals officials feel Michael Wacha can work more than 200 innings, per FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.

Advice: Which is good news for his fantasy owners, who have watched Wacha flourish to the tune of a 2.85 ERA, 1.087 WHIP, and 69/20 K/BB ratio over 88 1/3 innings this season. Wacha was limited to 107 innings last summer due to a shoulder injury, but the 23-year-old right-hander has had no shoulder problems at all in 2015.

Michael Wacha struggled and lost to the Phillies on Sunday, allowing five runs in five innings, missing out on winning his 10th game.

Advice: With the way the Phillies had been hitting, Wacha attaining win number 10 seemed like a foregone conclusion, but the Phillies were squaring him up quite well. The right-hander gave up eight hits and a walk while striking out seven. Wacha's stats remain impressive, as he'll carry a 2.85 ERA, a 1.09 WHIP, and a 69/20 K/BB ratio over 88 1/3 innings into a home start versus the Cubs.
