Updating a previous story, St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong (knee) might be too sore to play Sunday, March 27, according to manager Mike Matheny, who added that he did not expect Wong to miss much additional time. Wong left a Grapefruit League game against the Washington Nationals on Saturday, March 26, with a left knee contusion.
Fantasy Tip: There doesn’t seem to be much concern over this injury, so continue to view Wong a mid-range option at second base.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright had manager Mike Matheny stand in as a hitter during a light bullpen session Monday, Feb. 15. Wainwright sought feedback on the two changeups he's been working on: a four-seam and two-seam grip.
Fantasy Tip: Wainwright missed most of 2015 with a ruptured Achilles' tendon, but he seemed to be no worse for wear upon his return last September, as he allowed two earned runs in six relief appearances spanning 8 1/3 innings (including postseason). The otherwise durable three-time All-Star should once again serve as the ace for a strong St. Louis rotation and could easily return to being an elite fantasy option if he stays healthy this season.
