Player Notes
Michael Wacha fought to earn a quality start Tuesday, allowing four runs -- three earned -- on nine hits over six innings in a win over the Royals.

Advice: It wasn't Wacha's finest outing -- in fact, his nine hits allowed were the most in a start since his season debut against the Pirates -- but he managed to pick up his fourth win with the effort. Wacha did issue just one free pass while striking out four in the game. Despite running off four straight quality starts, we still haven't seen the kind of dominance expected from the 24-year-old, who owns a 4.42 ERA and 1.38 WHIP through 16 starts. A more favorable start Sunday against the Brewers could help his cause.

Michael Wacha held the Cubs to two earned runs over 6 2/3 innings Wednesday in a Cardinals win.

Advice: He was able to out-duel Cubs ace Jake Arrieta as the Cardinals finished off a three-game sweep of their arch rival. Wacha struck out five and scattered two walks and three hits over his 6 2/3 solid frames. He's been really good the last three outings and should be plugged back into fantasy lineups. Up next is a road start against the Royals.
