Cards ace Adam Wainwright out for season with torn Achilles (Yahoo Sports)

Before Adam Wainwright left the field in Milwaukee, the St. Louis Cardinals anticipated they’d be losing their staff ace for the season. Recovery time is generally 9-to-12 months, and general manager John Mozeliak was ”optimistic” the 6-foot-7 right-hander will be ready for spring training. ”Unfortunate news, but not unexpected after what we saw,” Mozeliak said before the Cardinals played Philadelphia. ”Given that it’s his left leg, I think we’re optimistic it’ll be sooner rather than later, but as far as this year goes, he’s done.” Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard had a similar injury, sustained on the final out of the 2011 Division Series against St. Louis.

Orioles’ game in Baltimore postponed due to safety concerns (Yahoo Sports)

The Baltimore Orioles’ home game against the Chicago White Sox was postponed Monday night because of safety concerns after riots broke out near Camden Yards following the funeral of Freddie Gray. Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred, at the stadium for a previously planned visit, said Tuesday night’s game between the Orioles and White Sox could be moved – possibly to Nationals Park in Washington – if safety continued to be an issue. Rioters looted stores and threw rocks and bricks at Baltimore police about three miles from the stadium in the wake of the mysterious death of Gray. The Orioles announced the postponement about 40 minutes before gametime.

Max Scherzer will not make his scheduled start for Washington against Atlanta on Tuesday night because of a sprained right thumb. Manager Matt Williams said Scherzer may be ready to start within a few days. ”I would think that before another five days he’d be OK to go,” Williams said Monday. So that may happen tomorrow.” Williams said Scherzer had difficulty throwing his slider due to the thumb, which the pitcher jammed while batting against St. Louis on Thursday.
