|Cardinals' 20-game Winner Wainwright Injures Elbow
|JUPITER, Fla. (AP) _ Cardinals' 20-game winner Adam Wainwright has injured his throwing elbow and is returning to St. Louis to have it examined by team doctors.
General manager John Mozeliak said Wednesday that ``things do not look encouraging'' for the 2010 Cy Young runner-up based on the initial evaluation by training staff. He said the right-hander injured his elbow on the third to final pitch of Monday's bullpen session.
Wainwright went 20-11 with a 2.42 ERA in 2010 in finishing second in the Cy Young balloting to Philadelphia's Roy Halladay.
In 2009, Wainwright led the NL in wins (19), innings (233) and starts (34), winning a Gold Glove while finishing third in the Cy Young voting.
