Our own Raymond Bureau reported that Wainwright pitcher Adam Wainwright has tendonitis, not tennis elbow or a torn UCL, which was initially feared. It appears that Wainwright will not need a stint on the disabled list.
An update on Wainwright, as reported by Alex Halsted of MLB.com, is that he will not make his next scheduled start on Monday. The decision was made on Saturday after Wainwright played catch at Busch Stadium. Despite improvement from an anti-inflammatory shot, the Cardinals will err on the side of caution. There is no word as of yet who will start on Monday in Wainwright's place.
Wainwright is 9-3 with a 2.15 ERA this season. One of the best pitchers in the Major Leagues over the past several seasons, Wainwright has a career record of 108-60 with a 3.05 ERA.
As for Siegrest, who has been sidelined with a left forearm strain and who last pitched May 23, he is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Sunday. He will need at least one rehab appearance before being activated from the disabled list. When he begins a rehab assignment is currently unknown.
Siegrist has a 3.60 ERA in 23 appearances this season. In 68 career games, Siegrist has allowed only 34 hits in 57 2/3 innings, struck out 77 and has a miniscule 1.51 ERA.
