Fantasy Tip: Moss has at least one hit in seven of his last eight games and has five multi-hit games during that span. He should be a solid starting candidate in most fantasy leagues. Fryer is hitting .414 in limited playing time this season, but owners may be able to find better options to use.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina sitting vs. Pirates

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 14:09:00 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 10. C Eric Fryer is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Molina is a viable starting catcher with 22 runs, 22 RBI and a .271/.348/.362 slash line, but don't expect much power, as he has just 12 bombs since the beginning of the 2014 season. Fryer is 11-for-26 this season and could be a contrarian flier in daily contests, albeit it a risky one facing Cole Friday.

Cardinals | St. Louis sitting four starters

Sun, 29 May 2016 09:18:18 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Aledmys Diaz, OF Stephen Piscotty, C Yadier Molina and 2B Kolten Wong are not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg Sunday, May 29. SS Greg Garcia will start in shortstop and is batting second. 1B Brandon Moss will start in left field and is batting sixth. 2B Jedd Gyorko will start in second base and is batting seventh, while C Eric Fryer will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia has played very well over the last seven days and should be sleeper candidate in daily fantasy leagues. Moss, Gyorko and Fryer has struggled recently and can be avoided in most leagues.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina out of Sunday lineup

Sun, 15 May 2016 14:59:51 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina is not starting Sunday, May 15, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. C Eric Fryer is batting eighth against Dodgers SP Alex Wood.

Fantasy Tip: Molina is out due to the left. vs. left matchup, so he gets the night off (or most of it, anyway). Fryer is a .538 hitter this season (7-for-13), so if you are looking for a low-cost flyer on your fantasy team he may not be bad. Fryer also isn't a bad option as a "handcuff" player in deeper leagues in case Molina gets hurt.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina starting at 1B

Wed, 04 May 2016 14:43:10 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Molina is hitting .333 with 10 RBI this season and should be a starting candidate in all leagues. Fryer is hitting .667 in his limited playing time and could be sleeper option for daily fantasy owners.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina sitting vs. Nats

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 13:18:41 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 29. C Eric Fryer is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Beside sitting without a home run, it has been an excellent start for Molina. He has a .333/.422/.436 slash line with 10 RBI and is a sound starting option in all fantasy formats. You'll want to replace the workhorse backstop where you can Friday, though. Fryer should be viewed as a desperation flier against Strasburg Friday.

Cardinals | Eric Fryer has three hits

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 14:59:15 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Eric Fryer had three hits Sunday, April 17, in a 4-3 win over the Cincinnati Reds.

Fantasy Tip: The Cardinals have struggled to find a capable backup to Yadier Molina in the event of an injury, and they may have that backup now. Fryer is 6-for-6 at the plate. He won't start every game, but daily leagues may want to take advantage of Fryer. You may also want to lock him up as a handcuff to Molina.
