Adam Wainwright pitched in his daughter’s softball game on Monday evening in St. Louis


Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright has been on the disabled list since rupturing his left Achilles tendon during a start April 25 at Milwaukee’s Miller Park.

He hasn’t ruled out returning this season, but it’s a pretty safe bet that he won’t considering most Achilles tears take over 10 months to fully heal.

The 33-year-old right-hander might not pitch in another game for the Cardinals until next April, but he is apparently staying active on the amateur softball diamonds in St. Louis. This story (and a great accompanying picture) comes from the game’s umpire, Greg Lazerwitz


Wainwright verified the story on his personal Twitter account Tuesday. Watch for the curve, ladies.
