Michael Wacha Stats

Michael Wacha was born on Monday, July 1, 1991, in Iowa City, Iowa. Wacha was 21 years old when he broke into the big leagues on May 30, 2013, with the St. Louis Cardinals. His biographical data, year-by-year hitting stats, fielding stats, pitching stats (where applicable), career totals, uniform numbers, salary data and miscellaneous items-of-interest are presented by Baseball Almanac on this comprehensive Michael Wacha baseball stats page.

"He (Michael Wacha) just doesn't look like a kid that is fresh out of college. The stuff is there, but there is just a composure, there's a maturity, a pitching maturity. The situation doesn't really get much bigger than it was his last start, and you watched him be able to hold that and continue all the way through his last pitch. It was something that was impressive for us to watch and continue to watch him grow. There's not a whole lot that's there that you wouldn't like." - Manager Mike Matheny (MLB.com, Jenifer Langosch, 10/04/2013, 'Wacha earns trust to start Game 4 in Pittsburgh', Source )

Did you know that on October 7, 2013, Michael Wacha became the first rookie in Major League history to take a postseason no-hit bid to the seventh inning? The only other rookie to even hold an opponent hitless through five innings in the postseason was Jeff Tesreau of the New York Giants in Game 1 of the 1912 World Series , at the Polo Grounds. Tesreau's bid ended with one out in the sixth inning on a triple by Boston's Tris Speaker ; Boston won, 4-3.
