Adam Wainwright’s Achilles Indeed Torn, Out for Season

Chicago Cubs

adam wainwright cardinalsAs Luis wrote yesterday, Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright suffered a series lower leg injury this weekend, feared by the club to be an Achilles injury, from which recovery takes a long time.

Unfortunately for the Cardinals and Wainwright, that was indeed the injury. After suffering a torn Achilles, Wainwright will be out 9 to 12 months, according to the team.

For now, the Cardinals are not expected to sprint into the trade market to pick up another pitcher, though their best internal options for a replacement – Jaime Garcia and Marco Gonzalez – are currently injured.
