Wain­wright’s sea­son up in air

Los Angeles Times - - BASEBALL -

St. Louis Car­di­nals righthander Adam Wain­wright could be out for the sea­son be­cause of an in­jury to his Achilles’ ten­don and left an­kle.

Wain­wright was in­jured while bat­ting Satur­day night in Mil­wau­kee. He is sched­uled for an MRI exam Mon­day.

“Whether it’s strained or torn … I don’t think it’s good news,” Gen­eral Manager John Mozeliak told the St. Louis Post-Dis­patch on Sun­day.

Wain­wright, 33, was put on the 15-day dis­abled list. Na­tion­als’ Scherzer has a sprained right thumb

Wash­ing­ton Na­tion­als ace Max Scherzer prob­a­bly will be scratched from his next sched­uled start, Tues­day at At­lanta, be­cause of a sprained right thumb.

Scherzer jammed the thumb while bat­ting Thurs­day against St. Louis.

“We’ll prob­a­bly have to make an ad­just­ment on Tues­day,” Manager Matt Wil­liams said. “I don’t an­tic­i­pate him miss­ing more than one turn, but again you don’t know.”
