|Cards Ace Wainwright Done for Year
|UNDATED (AP) -- St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright will have Tommy John surgery on his right elbow and miss the entire season.
Cardinals GM John Mozeliak confirms the prognosis after the 29-year-old pitcher sought a second opinion in Los Angeles. Wainwright felt stiffness in his arm after Monday's throwing session.
Wainwright won 20 games last year and was runner-up for the NL Cy Young Award. His loss leaves the team with a big hole in what looked to be a stable starting rotation.
