Adam Wainwright told reporters after his solid Sunday start that he’s “pretty close” to his old form.
Wainwright allowed just one run over seven innings of work to the Astros, fanning seven Houston hitters while issuing just one walk. It was easily his best start since returning from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery, though he’s looked progressively sharper in recent outings. The right-hander still owns a rough 5.61 ERA on the year, but it’s dropping. Now would be the time to buy-low on Waino.
