News: Wainwright will start Game 1 of the NLDS against the Dodgers on Friday, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Wainwright, who tossed a complete game but took the loss to the Dodgers in his lone start against them in the regular season, will be followed by Lance Lynn, John Lackey and Shelby Miller.(RotoWire, )

News: Wainwright stopped warming up and returned to the clubhouse prior to his scheduled start Sunday, MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch reports. Impact: Wainwright was originally scheduled to take the hill for the Cardinals on Sunday, but following the Pirates' loss to the Reds, St. Louis has officially clinched the NL Central. Nick Greenwood appears to be the likely candidate to start over the Cardinals' ace in Sunday's regular-season finale. This would leave Wainwright open to start Game 1 of the NLDS, where he'll likely square off against Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers.(RotoWire, )

News: The Cardinals plan to start Wainwright on Sunday regardless of whether or not they clinch the NL Central on Saturday night, MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch reports. Impact: Wainwright would still be able to start Game 1 of the NLDS on normal rest if he pitches Sunday, so it appears he'll take the ball as scheduled, even though a Cardinals victory Saturday would render Sunday's game relatively meaningless. Those planning to start him on Sunday should be sure to check out the result of Saturday's game, however, as he could be removed from his start earlier than usual, if the Cardinals have the division in hand.(RotoWire, )
