SECAUCUS, N.J. -- Retired St. Louis Cardinals All-Star pitcher Adam Wainwright has joined the MLB Network as an on-air analyst.

Wainwright will make his debut on Opening Day, March 28, the network said Tuesday. He will work the Cardinals’ game June 20 against San Francisco at Rickwood Field in Birmingham, Ala.

Wainwright had a 200-128 record with a 3.53 ERA in 18 major league seasons, all with the Cardinals. 

The 42-year-old right-hander got his 200th win in his final pitching appearance Sept. 18 against Milwaukee.
