ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright compared the infusion of talent from Triple-A Memphis this year to Michael Wacha, Carlos Martinez, Kevin Siegrist, and Seth Maness joining the team during the 2013 season.
“I’ve been a part of something like that where a couple of young guys will come up and rejuvenate a team,” Wainwright said. “I really like this group of young guys coming up (from Memphis). I think we have a little renaissance coming up here that’s going to be pretty awesome.”
“Don’t even get me started on Paul DeJong because I think he’s a superstar,” Wainwright said.
Wainwright continued that the Memphis Redbirds are thirty games over .500 for a reason this year and joked that the front office would swap teams if the big league club didn’t rack up some wins.
