The St. Louis Cardinals were dealt a blow yesterday when ace Adam Wainwright injured himself while stumbling out of the batter’s box. He barely took a step before hobbling down the first baseline with an apparent Achilles injury. He has been placed on the disabled list, but if it proves to be a torn Achilles, he would definitely be lost for the remainder of 2015.
The Cardinals officially placed their long time ace on the disabled list Sunday morning. After labeling it only an ankle injury on Saturday, the team is now acknowledging the possibility of an Achilles injury, which likely has some hearts skipping a few beats in the clubhouse and back in St. Louis.
The team announced Wainwright will undergo an MRI on Monday in St. Louis.
