Adam Wainwright named Cardinals’ Opening Night starter

8 Comments

Adam Wainwright tossed a spring-high 93 pitches in a Grapefruit League appearance Tuesday afternoon against the Marlins and was officially declared the Cardinals’ Opening Night starter after the outing by manager Mike Matheny. This according to Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

A late-February abdominal injury threw off Waino’s early-spring throwing schedule, but he was able to catch up over the past month and he’ll take the hill against the rival Cubs on Sunday evening at Wrigley Field. This will be the fourth time Waino has pitched an opener for the Cards. Following him in the rotation will be Lance Lynn, John Lackey, Michael Wacha, and Carlos Martinez — not necessarily in that order.
