The St. Louis Cardinals announced prior to this evening’s game that they have placed right-handed pitcherAdam Wainwright on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to July 23, due to mid-back tightness. The team will announce a corresponding roster move tomorrow.
Wainwright, 35, is leading the Cardinals with 11 wins and has posted a 4.89 ERA in his 20 games started, striking out 95 batters in 110.1 innings pitched.
This marks just the fourth time in his career that Wainwright has been disabled: 2008 for right middle finger sprain, 2011 for right elbow Tommy John surgery and 2015 for a ruptured right Achilles.
The three-time All-Star owns a career mark of 145-81 with a 3.27 ERA in 340 games pitched, ranking 5th on the Cardinals all-time wins list.
