A third game, a third different starting second baseman for the Cardinals. Kolten Wong gets the assignment today. With Allen Craig (right shoulder soreness) and Matt Adams (left knee soreness) still limited, Ty Wigginton gets another start at first base. Adams said this morning that the swelling in his knee has gone down but that he doesn’t expect to participate in any of the workout activities on Monday. He is on Tuesday’s travel roster, though, so that would suggest the Cardinals expect him to be available soon.
Adam Wainwright doesn’t have a contract extension yet, but that won’t keep him from taking the mound Monday for his first sprint start.
