ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- Adam Wainwright will return to the Cardinals in 2019, agreeing to a one-year contract with the team.
The signing was announced Thursday by the team on Twitter.
2019 will be Wainwright's 15th season with the team, tying Bob Forsch as the third most for a pitcher with St. Louis.
Over his 352 games with the team, he's won 148 games and posted a 3.32 ERA.
Wainwright ranks among the top 10 in a number of franchise pitching stats.
He's fifth in wins, seventh in innings pitched and second in strikeouts.
The 37-year-old struggled with injury in 2018, making four starts through April and May before ending up on the disabled list for most of the season with elbow soreness.
While there was some concern his career may be coming to a close, he returned to the team on September 10, and made four starts over the final month.
He finished the year with an ERA of 4.46 over 40.1 innings. His last fully healthy season was 2016, when he made 33 starts and finished 13-9.
Wainwright will likely slot into the rotation for the season.
