Cardinals | Brandon Moss playing first base

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:04:51 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B/OF Brandon Moss is batting eighth and starting at first base against San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong Saturday, Aug. 29. 1B/OF Mark Reynolds is not in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Moss ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is batting just .208 this month and is hitless in four career at-bats versus Vogelsong. Better first base options are available in FantasyScore this afternoon.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward sitting out vs. Giants

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 15:58:49 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward is not in the starting lineup Friday, August 28. OF Brandon Moss draws into the lineup and is batting seventh against San Francisco Giants SP Mike Leake Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Heyward ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. He owns a .318/.392/.482 slash line with 14 runs, eight extra-base hits, 13 RBI and five stolen bases over his past 25 games. He was dealing with a hamstring injury last week, so it might just be an opportune time to rest him. Moss ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) hit his first home run with the Cardinals Thursday, Aug. 27, so perhaps it is the sign of things to come. He is a viable flier at FantasyScore Friday.

Cardinals | Stephen Piscotty sitting out

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 16:20:43 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Stephen Piscotty is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa Thursday, Aug. 27. OF Brandon Moss will start in left field and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Piscotty ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return soon. Moss ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is hitting only .190 with one RBI this month and probably is not a great starting option.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward starting now

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 16:34:21 -0700

Updating a previous report, St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward (hamstring) is in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 21, after initially not being listed. He is starting in right field and hitting cleanup against San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner. OF Brandon Moss comes out of the original lineup.

Fantasy Tip: The Cardinals wouldn't be putting Heyward ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) back into the lineup tonight if he wasn't healthy, so he's safe to return to starting lineups in all formats, including at FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Brandon Moss starting in LF

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 13:40:53 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Brandon Moss is starting in left field and hitting seventh against San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston Monday, Aug. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Moss ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) and Peter Bourjos ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) could platoon in the outfield with Randal Grichuk on the DL. Moss has notable power but has just five hits in 34 at-bats since joining St. Louis at the trade deadline. He's a weaker option on FantasyScore right now until he shows signs of life with his new club.

Cardinals | Mark Reynolds starting against Miami

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 14:44:11 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Mark Reynolds is starting at first base and hitting eighth against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler Friday, Aug. 14. 1B Brandon Moss is starting on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Brandon Moss has been slumping badly since his arrival in trade deadline deal from Cleveland, so Reynolds ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) starts against a righty. Reynolds has power to spare but swings and misses often (93 K's in 284 at-bats). He's a low-end first base option on FantasyScore, especially while sitting at the bottom of the lineup.

Cardinals | Brandon Moss struggling with St. Louis

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 11:19:48 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Brandon Moss has struggled since joining the Cardinals at the trade deadline, and he admits that his offseason hip surgery has made it tough to stay mechanically consistent this year at the plate. Moss struck out three times Wednesday, Aug. 12, and was hitless in two at-bats Thursday, Aug. 13, to drop his average with St. Louis to .147 and his on-base percentage to .194. He has 11 strikeouts in 32 at-bats with the Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Moss ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) hit only .217 (73-for-337) for the Cleveland Indians this year, but he did manage to swat 15 home runs and drive in 50. He doesn't make enough contact to help with average, but he does have legitimate home run power. Platooning at first base with Mark Reynolds has hurt his fantasy value, and he's one to avoid on FantasyScore right now. However, he could become an under-the-radar play against certain righty arms if he gets out of his current slump.

Cardinals | Peter Bourjos starting in center field

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 13:37:42 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Peter Bourjos is starting in center field and batting eighth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Thursday, Aug. 13. OF Brandon Moss and 1B Mark Reynolds are not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid both Reynolds ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) and Moss ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) at FantasyScore Thursday, but Bourjos ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) isn't a strong start, either. It is Bourjos' first start since Tuesday, July 28, and he owns an uninspiring .222/.321/.341 slash line for the season.

Cardinals | Brandon Moss batting eighth

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 14:10:10 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Brandon Moss is batting eighth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole Wednesday, Aug. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Moss ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is platooning with Mark Reynolds ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) at first base, and Moss is receiving the starts against right-handed hurlers. Moss has started out poorly with the Cardinals (.433 OPS over 31 plate appearances), and he faces a high-end hurler Wednesday, so FantasyScore players should look elsewhere.

Cardinals | Brandon Moss on bench vs. southpaw

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 14:41:14 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Brandon Moss is not in the lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates left-handed SP Jeff Locke Tuesday, Aug. 11. 1B Mark Reynolds is starting at first base and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Moss and Reynolds ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) are likely to be involved in a platoon at first base moving forward. Reynolds has plenty of power but is hitting only .223 (62-for-278) with 93 strikeouts, and the low lineup placement limits his FantasyScore appeal as a sleeper tonight against Locke.
