There is no such thing as a good injury in sports, but some injuries are more concerning than others. It doesn’t get much more worrisome than a hurt ace pitcher for an MLB team. 

Such is the case for the St. Louis Cardinals, as Adam Rubin of ESPN New York pointed out:

CBS' Danny Knobler added more:

The Cardinals are looking up at the Milwaukee Brewers in the early standings in the National League Central. Teams certainly can’t win a division in April, but St. Louis would prefer to stay within shouting distance of the Brew Crew.

Losing Adam Wainwright for an extended period of time would make that much more difficult.

Wainwright is off to an impressive 3-1 start on the young 2014 season, but it is his 1.46 ERA that stands out the most. He also has a tremendous .81 WHIP and has dominated opponents on the mound with his stuff.

The only silver lining is that this isn’t an arm injury. However, Wainwright insisted that he would be alright, via Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

I'll be alright. Just give me a couple days and everything will be alright. I was very off balance as you could probably see. Everything is good. At first you feel a little scared, but as I walked off the field I knew I didn't do anything wrong. All is good.
