Cardinals: Adam Wainwright's legendary career

Wainwright's endured a miserable 2023 season. He owns a 7.40 ERA across 101.1 innings pitched. The Cardinals have stuck with him since he's a legend of the organization and this is his final year in the big leagues. The team's willingness to keep Wainwright in the rotation allowed him the opportunity to reach the 200-win mark.

Giving up on Wainwright this season may have been an option if St. Louis was in contention. But they are not, so Wainwright has continued to pitch and displayed he still features the talent to impress at times following Monday's performance.

For his career, he owns a 3.53 ERA and will be a fringe Hall-of-Famer. He finished as an NL Cy Young finalist four times and led the league in innings pitched twice. Wainwright, a three-time All-Star, also helped the Cardinals win two World Series championships.
