Wainwright has surgery to repair torn Achillies tendon

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright has had surgery to repair a torn left Achilles tendon, an injury that will sideline him for the rest of the season.

"Everything went well," Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said after Thursday's operation. "No surprises, which was probably the best news, and didn't have to use any extra material to reattach the tendon. So now it's rest and recovery for probably the next 6 to 8 weeks."

Wainwright was injured while batting in Milwaukee last Saturday.
