Stud: Adam Wainwright
May Stats (32 IP): 3-1 W-L, 1.69 ERA, 0.88 WHIP, 22 SO
Adam Wainwright continued to turn back the clock this past month, pitching great in all five starts this month, including three masterful performances where he looked nearly unhittable.
Wainwright’s 7 inning gem against the red hot Padres was a sign of many things for the St. Louis ballclub. First, Wainwright may be able to be the ace of the staff once again, even with his 41st birthday on the horizon. Second, Wainwrights consistency will provide the rotation and bullpen with much needed relief as injuries and underperformances are found on various parts of the staff.
If St. Louis is to make a postseason run, they will need Wainwright to provide significant starts for them during the regular and postseason. Lucky for the Cardinals, it looks like he is primed to do so once again.
