Wainwright, 36, is 1-2 with a 3.45 ERA in his three starts this season.

Brebbia was charged with the loss in the Cardinals 2-1 defeat in 13 innings last night at PETCO Park, despite striking out four in his 2.0 innings of relief. He's 0-1 with a 2.70 ERA in six relief appearances, striking out 14 in 10.0 innings pitched.

Wainwright is the second pitcher the Cardinals have returned from the disabled list this weekend, joining reliever Brett Cecil who was activated on Friday. Prior to the weekend series, the Cardinals placed pitchers Carlos Martínez (right lat strain) and Tyler Lyons (mid back stain) on the 10-day disabled list.
