This is the kind of news that’ll make Cardinals fans’ sphincters clench with anxiety:
Adam Wainwright returned to St. Louis today for MRI on his elbow. Matheny to discuss issue with media later this hour. #stlcards

Langosch followed up by noting that, according to Mike Matheny, it’s not a ligament issue. It’s more discomfort akin to tennis elbow. Which OK Dr. Matheny, I think Cards fans may want to wait for the MRI results before they unclench those sphincters.
Wainwright pitched just last night and seemed just fine, shutting out the Rays for seven inning en route to his ninth win of the season. He has a 2.15 ERA and a 91/21 K/BB ratio in 100.1 innings.
