Wacha has thrown 90.1 innings through 15 starts, putting him on pace for right around 200 innings on the season. Last year he logged 150 innings between the minors and majors.
His sophomore campaign has been every bit as impressive as his standout rookie season, with Wacha posting a 2.79 ERA and 83/26 K/BB ratio in 90 innings to basically match his numbers in most key categories. He tossed six innings of one-run ball against the Mets last time out, striking out seven batters, and hasn’t topped 100 pitches in a start since May 15.
Here’s hoping it’s just a one-start break and Wacha picks up right where he left off next week. Carlos Martinez, who moved from the bullpen to fill in for Adam Wainwright this week, will now start in place of Wacha.
