Cardinals | Matt Carpenter, Matt Adams out

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 12:51:06 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Matt Carpenter and 1B Matt Adams are not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jon Niese Sunday, June 12. 2B Jedd Gyorko will start at second base and is batting first in the lineup. 1B Brandon Moss will start at first base and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko is batting only .157 so far this month and has only three RBI in the past 12 games. Owners should be able to find better options to use. Moss is batting .421 with three home runs and six RBI over the last seven days and is a solid option for fantasy owners.

Cardinals | Matt Carpenter out Saturday

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 15:25:00 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter is out of the lineup Saturday, June 11, with OF Randal Grichuk leading off.

Fantasy Tip: This is probably more about the matchup against Francisco Liriano than it is about his finger after "Marp" hit a three-run shot last night. Carpenter is hitting just .188 lifetime off Liriano. On the flip side, Grich is 5-for-11 (.455) lifetime. He has struggled all season and is just 3-for-24 (.125) this month, but it's a solid matchup for the right price in DFS.

Cardinals | Matt Carpenter starting vs. Pirates

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 13:55:19 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter (finger) is starting at second base and batting first against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole Friday, June 10. He jammed his finger in his final at-bat against the Cincinnati Reds Thursday, June 9, and was questionable for the game Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Carpenter will grab eligibility at second base soon, which will only make him more valuable. He sits with 42 runs, nine home runs, 39 RBI and a .281/.393/.543 slash line thus far and should be started confidently in all seasonal leagues.

Cardinals | Matt Carpenter jams finger

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 21:16:41 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter (finger) jammed his finger in his final at-bat against the Cincinnati Reds Thursday, June 9.

Fantasy Tip: Greg Garcia or Jedd Gyorko could start if Carpenter has to miss time, and either player would have sleeper potential in DFS formats as a starter.

Cardinals | Three hits for Matt Carpenter

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 05:03:35 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter had three hits and an RBI during his team's 6-3 win over the San Francisco Giants on Sunday, June 5.

Fantasy Tip: With a .281-9-36 mark Carpenter has been a fantastic leadoff hitter for the Cardinals, kind of the straw that stirs the drink. Carpenter is already fantasy-worthy in all formats, even more so now that he will play second base and become more versatile.

Cardinals | Matt Carpenter moving back to 2B

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 10:17:54 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter will shift over to second base when SS Jhonny Peralta (thumb), who will take over third base, returns from the disabled list. SS Aledmys Diaz will remain at shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: This does not bode well at all for Kolten Wong, who is flirting with becoming useless in most leagues if he regularly winds up on the bench. At the same time, it is wonderful news for Diaz, who obviously performed well enough while Peralta was out to keep his place in the starting lineup. Peralta, meanwhile, is someone to seek out if he's on any waiver wires. As for Carpenter, he's returning to the position he played in the beginning of his career, and the added second base eligibility will make Carp much more valuable in 2017.
