News: Wainwright admitted to "going through a dead arm phase" recently, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Impact: Wainwright has had a rough August (5.29 ERA), and it's possible a tired arm could be part of the cause. Wainwright does not seem concerned about his health and is unlikely to miss a start anytime soon, but both fantasy owners and the Cardinals have to hope he will get back on track as quickly as possible.(RotoWire, )

News: Wainwright had an off night Wednesday against the Pirates, giving up three runs on eight hits and a walk over six innings while striking out five. Impact: Seven of the eight hits Wainwright allowed were singles but it was enough to get the job done for the Pirates.(RotoWire, )

News: Wainwright allowed five runs (four earned) on six hits, walking three and striking out two over six innings of a 5-4 loss to the Phillies on Friday night. Impact: Another sub-par performance for Wainwright (15-8, 2.52 ERA), who has scuffled (for him) over his past seven starts - he was 3-3 with a 4.50 ERA over his six starts prior to this one. There was some indication things might be clicking later in this start, so a turnaround could be in the cards when he takes on the Pirates in Pittsburgh next week.(RotoWire, )

News: Wainwright will start Friday against the Phillies, Jenifer Langosch of reports. Impact: The Cardinals will take advantage of an off day and move Wainwright up to start Friday on normal rest, with Shelby Miller bumped back to Saturday. In doing so, the Cardinals will have their ace available to start next Wednesday's series finale against the division rival Pirates.(RotoWire, )

News: Wainwright allowed seven hits and four runs (three earned) with five strikeouts and one walk over seven innings in Sunday's win over San Diego. Impact: Wainwright labored through the fifth and sixth innings, but was otherwise strong in the winning decision. Though his overall numbers remain excellent, Wainwright hasn't been nearly as dominant in the second half of the season, recording a 4.50 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 28:14 K:BB ratio in six starts (38 innings) since the All-Star break. Up next is a road matchup against Philadelphia on Saturday.(RotoWire, )
