Cardinals | Jason Heyward back in the lineup

Mon, 25 May 2015 11:09:36 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward (hip) is in the starting lineup Monday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) missed the previous two games because of the injury but is back in the lineup. He has recorded two home runs and seven RBI in his last seven games and could be a solid starting option on FantasyScore if he is not affected by the injury.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward not playing

Sun, 24 May 2015 10:44:00 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward (hip) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 24. OF Peter Bourjos will take his place in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is dealing with an injury and it is not known when he will be able to return to the lineup. Bourjos ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has only four hits in his last 11 games, so owners on FantasyScore may want to look for other options.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward not starting

Sat, 23 May 2015 13:52:11 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward is not in the starting lineup Saturday, May 23, against the Kansas City Royals. OFs Matt Holliday, Randal Grichuk and Peter Bourjos will start with 1B Mark Reynolds serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Reynolds ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has three home runs on the season, and he has the ability to offer some occasional power. With a 33.7% strikeout rate and hitting out of the eighth spot in the batting order, Reynolds doesn't need much consideration on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward resting vs. southpaw

Tue, 19 May 2015 14:33:29 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 19. OF Randal Grichuk is starting in right field and hitting second in the batting order against New York Mets SP Jon Niese.

Fantasy Tip: Grichuk ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) hasn't seen much success in the major leagues early in his career, but he has the tools to produce with enough playing time. Right-handed batters have a .280/.329/.424 slash line off Niese this season, so Grichuk could be a sleeper play that pays off at FantasyScore tonight.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward relegated to seven-hole

Mon, 18 May 2015 12:37:59 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward is batting seventh against the New York Mets Monday, May 18.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has struggled to generate consistent production this season, and he is currently mired in a 3-for-19 funk over his past six games. Until Heyward can string together a solid stretch at the dish, he should be viewed as a high-risk, high-reward FantasyScore option. Take note of the potentially difficult matchup against Matt Harvey Monday, too.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward leading off

Sun, 17 May 2015 16:30:15 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward will hit in the leadoff spot for the first time this season against the Detroit Tigers Sunday, May 17.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has struggled when hitting near the top of the lineup this season, and he is hitting just .208 in 72 at-bats from the No. 2 spot. It remains to be seen how he will handle leadoff duties, and he should probably be avoided at FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward will not start

Sat, 16 May 2015 08:42:55 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward is not in the starting lineup Saturday, May 16. OF Randal Grichuk will start in right field for the Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) likely is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Grichuk ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has not played since the middle of April and should not be an option on FantasyScore at this time.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward dropped to eighth

Thu, 14 May 2015 09:15:10 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward was dropped to eighth in the order Thursday, May 14.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward ($4,000, 8.0% of your cap) is actually hitting .318 the last week and .300 in May, but he hasn't hit for many extra bases. At his price point, he doesn't have a lot of luster until his power ignites.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward coming around

Fri, 08 May 2015 07:32:59 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward was 11-for-33 (.333) with 11 runs scored in the team's 11-game homestand.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward's ($4,000, 8.0% of your cap) shift from second to sixth and seventh in the order has provided results, but he's still sitting on a meager .246-2-6 line on the season. He has just six extra-base hits in 27 games since the season opener. His price isn't too prohibitive on FantasyScore to see if the increased contact leads to more authoritative contact.
