(AP) -- Adam Wainwright was a cheerleader on the St. Louis Cardinals' 2011 World Series title team, out the entire year following reconstructive elbow surgery, suiting up and slapping fives in the dugout.

The staff ace of the NL Central leaders might be reduced to that status again from an injury that came with him batting.

The two-time 20-game winner was set to undergo an MRI exam Monday to determine the extent of an injury to his left Achilles and ankle. He's already on the 15-day disabled list and the team was bracing for bad news, leaving the 6-foot-7 right-hander to put a brave face on a dire scenario.
