Cardinals Notes: Wainwright set for return to rotation, eager for heftier workload

“I want to really push it this second half,” said Wainwright, who has said this could be his final year in the majors. “Have a little return to form and be great. I have been really close to doing a lot of the things like I want to do them.”

Entering the break, Shildt, pitching coach Mike Maddux, and other team officials did an audit of the pitchers’ innings — their count so far and their historic workload. Shildt said the team is comfortable with the pace of innings and workload for young starters Dakota Hudson and Jack Flaherty.
