2017 Schedule
64-62, 3rd in NL Cent

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

This was Luke Weaver's longest outing (7 innings) in 11 big-league starts and he matched his career high in strikeouts (10). Yes, the matchups caveat -- Padres -- applies, but look at the schedule: lots of Brewers (K-prone), Padres, Giants, PNC Park left for the Cardinals. Adam Wainwright's DL stint isn't necessarily a minimum stay, so Weaver is well worth the add since by all rights he might be in for another 6-7 starts.
