St. Louis Cardinals SP Tyler Lyons will remain in the starting rotation.
Fantasy Tip: Lyons ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) projects to make his next start against the Detroit Tigers Saturday, May 16, which is a horrible matchup. FantasyScore players would be wise to steer clear of Lyons outside of plus-matchups. Except for the odd steamer start, seasonal owners can ignore Lyons outside of NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Tyler Lyons will be promoted to start against the Chicago Cubs Tuesday, May 5.
Fantasy Tip: Lyons ($3,000, 6.0% of your cap) has a decent matchup, but he's a risky SP proposition on FantasyScore.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Tyler Lyons is a likely option to replace SP Adam Wainwright (Achilles') in the starting rotation.
Fantasy Tip: Tim Cooney is also an option, but Lyons is already on the 40-man roster and has experience. He has struggled with a 4.61 ERA at Triple-A Memphis, but his batting average of balls in play is .500. That indicates he has had a lot of bad luck. The team really wants a left-hander in the rotation, and Marco Gonzales (pectoral) and Jaime Garcia (shoulder) are banged up. Lyons would be a matchup play at a low price on FantasyScore if he comes up.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Marco Gonzales is working with the starters, which would seem to indicate that he will start over SP Tyler Lyons, who is working with the relievers, Thursday, Sept. 4.

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.

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.
