The St. Louis Cardinals suffered a disappointing loss in the Wild Card round of the MLB Postseason to the Philadelphia Phillies. While they may have plenty of potential holes to fill this offseason, Adam Wainwright's spot in the starting rotation is not one of them.
Adam Wainwright 2023 Contact Details
Many thought Wainwright would call it a career along with the two other Cardinals legends, Albert Pujols and Yadier Molina, but Wainwright decided to run it back for one more season. We knew it was only a one-year deal, but now we have the full details of the contract.
This is fair market value considering how well Wainwright pitched last season, even at his advanced age. Wainwright pitched to a 3.71 ERA in 32 starts, and that would have been even lower if he didn't suffer a nagging injury down the stretch that clearly was affecting his performance.
The Cardinals will look to retool and revamp their roster this season to try and make a World Series run, and if Wainwright can put together another great year in his final campaign, he will be a big part of achieving that goal.
