Adam Wainwright, St. Louis Cardinals reach deal for 2022, sources say

The St. Louis Cardinals have reached a one-year extension for 2022 with ace Adam Wainwright, sources confirmed to ESPN on Friday.

Terms of the deal are not yet available. A news conference has been scheduled for 3 p.m. ET.

The right hander has had a solid 2021 campaign and will start the National League Wild Card game for the Cardinals next week. He’s 17-7 with a 3.05 ERA in 32 starts including three complete games and a shutout. His 206 innings pitched so far are the most for him since 2014.

Wainwright has won 10 of his last 11 decisions with 11 quality starts during that span.

Waino-Yadi partnership in ranks with legends

When the Cardinals open their series against the Brewers on Friday, Adam Wainwright will throw his first pitch of the game to Yadier Molina. It’s a given: If Molina is healthy and Wainwright is pitching, they will start together. They have done so 25 times already this year.

It’s Brunswick, Ga., and Bayamón, Puerto Rico, coming together every five days to play catch. From the mound in Milwaukee, it will mark 300 times—a milestone only three other sets of batterymates have reached before them. (And a tally that doesn’t include 14 more games started together in the postseason.)

The others? Mikey Lolich and Bill Freehan (324 starts). Warren Spahn and Del Crandall (316). Red Faber and Ray Schalk (306).

“It’s really a mind-blowing number, for me,” said Cardinals manager Mike Shildt. “It speaks to the longevity. It speaks to each of their ability to compete well. It speaks well to the fact they want to stay in an organization for as long as they have. It’s really an amazing, amazing accomplishment for both of them.”
