Projecting Adam Wainwright as a 2016 comeback player of the year candidate

With his Achilles and throwing elbow issues behind him, look for Adam Wainwright to have a terrific 2016 campaign, making him a viable candidate for comeback player of the year. On April 25, 2015, St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright left the game against the Milwaukee Brewers with an apparent torn Achilles, all but ending, or so we thought, his 2015 campaign (as his original timetable for return was set at 9 to 12 months).

Adam Wainwright is a shining member of the Cardinals' aging core.  He's been the unquestionable ace and leader of the staff since Chris Carpenter's departure, and if he retired tomorrow he'd be inducted into the Cardinals Hall of Fame as soon as possible. Regarding Jason Heyward's now way-too-maligned comments on the team's age heading into 2016, Wainwright had this to say at the Winter Warm-ups, as quoted by Derrick Goold: "Nobody likes being...
