Adam Wainwright Likely to Undergo Tommy John Surgery: Updated Fantasy Baseball Pitcher Rankings

Word hit Wednesday morning that Cardinals’ ace Adam Wainwright has been flown back to St. Louis to have his right elbow examined by team doctors. The Cardinals (and fantasy managers) across the country are holding their collective breaths, but it’s expected that Wainwright will undergo Tommy John surgery, which would sideline him for 12-18 months.

Likewise, Marlins‘ starter Josh Johnson boasts a 1.83 ERA and 0.96 WHIP through 16 starts, but hasn’t gotten the luck or the run support that Jimenez has. While Colorado’s ace has struggled in his last two starts, Johnson has continued to dominate. After a closer look, it’s become obvious that Johnson has out-dueled the N.L.
