Cards, Wacha reach contract

January 12th, 2019 by Associated Press in Sports Pro

ST. LOUIS— The St. Louis Cardinals and right-hander Michael Wacha avoided arbitration by agreeing to a $6.35-million contract, a raise of $1.05 million.

Wacha's 2018 season was interrupted by a strained muscle in his left side. Limited to 15 starts for St. Louis, he went 8-2 with a 3.20 ERA.

He was injured June 20 and placed on the 10-day disabled list a day later. His attempt to return ended Sept. 10 when he was placed on the 60-day DL.
