St. Louis Cardinals SPs Joe Kelly and Carlos Martinez will pitch Saturday, July 19, and Sunday, July 20, respectively, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. As previously reported, Lance Lynn will open the series Friday, July 18.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly and Martinez are risky road starts against a strong and rested Dodgers lineup. However, both are solid low-end pitching options with upside in all formats for the second half.

Cardinals | Joe Kelly activated

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 11:39:41 -0700

The St. Louis Cardinals activated SP Joe Kelly (hamstring) from the disabled list Friday, July 11, and optioned SP Tyler Lyons to Triple-A Memphis in a corresponding move. Also, SP Jaime Garcia (shoulder) was moved to the 60-day DL.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly will make the start tonight against the reeling Milwaukee Brewers. Kelly has a chance to stick in the rotation for a while after the injuries to Michael Wacha and Jaime Garcia. He's worth a look in deep mixed leagues.

Cardinals | Carlos Martinez stepping up

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 08:59:28 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez recorded a season-high six innings Tuesday, July 8, and the Cards are 5-0 in his five starts this year. Manager Mike Matheny said Martinez's delivery was smooth and that the right-hander's sinker looked on point. He pointed out Martinez looked better because he wasn't trying to reach triple digits on his fastball.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez is finding his groove, but hopefully he'll keep his rotation spot after the trade deadline. Grab him wherever you can. Jake Peavy or whoever else St. Louis may acquire would bump Joe Kelly or Tyler Lyons. Shelby Miller may actually be at risk if they seek outside SP help.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia will have surgery

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 15:42:26 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (shoulder) will have surgery Friday, July 11, to address a thoracic outlet symptom.

Fantasy Tip: At this stage, Garcia's shoulder issues have become chronic, and this surgery should end his season. Unless things change, Joe Kelly will be the beneficiary within the rotation going forward. However, it is no secret the Cardinals are searching for options through the trade market to replace Garcia, and potentially fill in for the injured Michael Wacha.

Cardinals | Joe Kelly will start Friday

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 14:47:45 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Joe Kelly (hamstring) will start Friday, July 11, against the Milwaukee Brewers. SP Tyler Lyons will move to the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly made three stingy starts to begin the season, and he is a must own in NL-only leagues. He has mixed league potential, but starting on the road against a potent Brewers lineup is a tough task, especially after a lengthy injury. With this news, Lyons' NL-only value is tied to another injury within the Cardinals' rotation.

Cardinals | Joe Kelly to return after break

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 13:22:49 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Joe Kelly (hamstring) will make two more rehab starts to build up his pitch count, according to manager Mike Matheny. The team doesn't expect to have him back until after the All-Star break. Kelly is expected to throw around 70 pitches in his next outing with Triple-A Memphis Sunday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: Because of the team's injury woes to the rotation, Kelly will be expected to step into the rotation immediately when he's ready. However, he's probably just a stopgap until Michael Wacha and Jaime Garcia return.
