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

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.
