Adam Wainwright to start Opening Day for Cardinals

St. Louis Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol told Adam Wainwright that he’ll be the team’s starter on Opening Day.

With ace Jack Flaherty sidelined due to a shoulder issue, Wainwright gets the nod to begin the season against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The 40-year-old reliable veteran posted an impressive 3.05 ERA last season with a 17-7 record.

Wainwright also had a 1.06 WHIP and 174/50 K/BB ratio across 206 1/3 innings.

Fantasy baseball managers could benefit from Wainwright in the upcoming season, especially with Flaherty out.
