Adam Wainwright exits Saturday’s start with an apparent Achilles injury

29 Comments

Adam Wainwright was removed from Saturday’s road start against the Brewers in the top of the fifth inning. He led off the inning, batting against Wily Peralta, and popped up to first base. He appeared to have suffered a foot injury, potentially his Achilles. He was seen limping before being taken out of the game.

Mitch Harris took over for Wainwright on the mound in the bottom half of the fifth inning. Wainwright shut out the Brewers over four innings, allowing three hits and no walks while striking out four.

Needless to say, this isn’t good news for the Cardinals. We’ll pass along details on the severity of the injury as they become available.

NEW YORK – Major League Baseball has sold its remaining share of a streaming service technology company to the Walt Disney Co. for $900 million.

The sale was disclosed Tuesday in Walt Disney Co.’s annual filing report through the SEC. MLB received the $900 million in exchange for the 15% stake it still had in a company called BAMTech, which originally started as MLB Advanced Media in 2000.

The technology helped MLB become a leader in sports streaming in the 2000s.

Walt Disney Co. has been buying chunks of BAMTech for the past five years and now owns 100% of the company. The National Hockey League sold its 10% share of BAMTech to Walt Disney Co. for a reported $350 million in 2021.
