BREAKOUT PLAYER / / ADAM WAINWRIGHT Team / / St. Louis Cardinals Position / / Right-handed starter Comment / / This might be one of those rare mistakes made by Braves general manager John Schuerholz. Wainwright, a former No. 1 pick by Atlanta, was dealt as part of the J.D. Drew trade in 2003. Wainwright, 25, did his initial breaking out by taking over for injured closer Jason Isringhausen in the second half of last season. He threw 9 2 / 3, scoreless innings in the postseason and saved four games.

It's really not a big deal. Nothing, truly, can be a big deal in an All-Star Game with 79 All-Stars. But you can't look at the fastballs Adam Wainwright threw to Derek Jeter last night in comparison to the cutting, diving offerings to Mike Trout one batter later and, at the very least, not notice a difference. Wainwright admitted, then un-admitted, that he grooved one for Derek Jeter's leadoff double in last night's All-Star Game, and it's honestly unclear who cared. Sure, Twitter kind of went crazy and I definitely noticed and texted some buddies about it. But I can't understand why it mattered.

Phillies right-hander Roy Halladay was a unanimous selection on Tuesday as the NL Cy Young Award winner. Halladay became the 13th unanimous choice in the NL, as he placed first on all 32 ballots cast by two writers from each NL city to finish with 224 points, 102 ahead of the Cardinals' Adam Wainwright , making him the fifth different pitcher to be honored in both leagues. This year the Baseball Writers' Association of America expanded the ballot to five pitchers, meaning the total was based on a tabulation system that rewards seven points for first place, four for second, three for third, two for fourth and one for fifth.

The same suspects Kevin Baxter Los Angeles Times If you liked last season's NL playoffs, chances are you'll like this fall's version since you'll be seeing many of the same teams. Washington, with Stephen Strasburg cleared to pitch a full season alongside Gio Gonzalez, could be even more dominant in the East, while the World Series champion Giants, with their deep pitching staff and reigning MVP Buster Posey behind the plate, are the favorites in the West.

Many in the Cubs' front office think they would be foolish to give up Starlin Castro to get Curtis Granderson , but there are a lot of other ways to do the deal. General manager Jim Hendry appreciates all Granderson brings to the table, even though he has had trouble hitting left-handers in two of the last three seasons. Perhaps Granderson would benefit from working with new Cubs hitting coach Rudy Jaramillo. … The Brewers apparently have decided not to re-sign catcher Jason Kendall (right)

The Orioles are reportedly involved in trade talks with the St. Louis involving Cardinals right-handed pitcher Kyle McClellan. According to a report from Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch , the Cardinals are shopping McClellan in order to alleviate payroll costs so that St. Louis can sign free-agent veteran right-hander Roy Oswalt. McClellan will make $2.5 million this season in his second season of arbitration eligibility. Strauss reports that the Cardinals have reached out to several teams, but the Orioles “have emerged as one of the more promising trade partners for McClellan.” McClellan worked as a reliever for his first three years with the Cardinals, but began the 2011 season in the starting rotation, mainly because of an injury to Adam Wainwright.

The Cardinals are looking to Kyle McClellan to replace Adam Wainwright , who will have Tommy John surgery. Manager Tony La Russa calls him a "real weapon" because he can get left-handed hitters out as well as right-handed hitters. La Russa points to Mitchell Boggs and Jason Motte as guys who can replace McClellan as setup men for Ryan Franklin. … After seeing them side by side, the Twins are leaning strongly toward playing Alexi Casilla at shortstop and Tsuyoshi Nishioka at second base.

The injury that St. Louis Cardinals star pitcher Adam Wainwright suffered in the bullpen during spring training isn't just a big league problem. As baseball season approaches, Little Leaguers and other school-age players should be aware that they can damage their elbows. Dr. Anand M. Murthi, attending orthopedic surgeon and chief of shoulder and elbow surgery at Union Memorial Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, explains the surgery that is sometimes necessary for repairs. It's called ulnar collateral ligament (UCL)

Right-hander Kevin Millwood, who was the Orioles' Opening Day starter last season, is now in Irvine, Calif., working out and waiting for a job. For the past week, Millwood, 36, has been training at a Southern California facility run by his agent, Scott Boras. Millwood works out every morning, running, lifting weights and throwing. Every two to three days he has thrown a bullpen side session, and he expects to pitch to college hitters next week. "I am just kind of keeping going, staying in shape and getting my arm ready to go when something does happen," Millwood said.

Javier Vazquez's return to New York brings with it a certain amount of intrigue. But it also underscores this point: The Yankees again will be the team to beat in 2010. Good teams start with good starting pitching. And after trading for Vazquez and re-signing Andy Pettitte , the Yankees have more of it than any American League team. The group of CC Sabathia , A.J. Burnett , Pettitte and Vazquez matches up with the Giants' top-heavy rotation led by Tim Lincecum , which last season held hitters to a .234 average and struck out 8.2 per nine innings.
