Cardinals | St. Louis announces NLDS rotation

Thu, 08 Oct 2015 12:04:57 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SPs Jaime Garcia, Michael Wacha and Lance Lynn will pitch Game 2 through Game 4, respectively, against the Chicago Cubs in the National League Division Series.

Fantasy Tip: Wacha ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) and Lynn ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) both stumbled into the playoffs. Wacha posted a 7.88 ERA while allowing a .962 OPS to opposing hitters through his five September starts, and Lynn has allowed 13 runs over 27 2/3 innings over his six starts in September. Garcia ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) posted a more respectable 3.44 ERA through his six September outings, and all three are worth considering as No. 2 starting pitcher options at FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Michael Wacha receiving rest

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 14:13:54 -0700

Updating a previous report, St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha was scratched from his start Wednesday, Sept. 2, purely as a way to give him extra rest down the stretch, according to manager Mike Matheny.

Fantasy Tip: Owners of Wacha ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) will be bummed that he didn't make the start tonight, but it may work out better for him in the short term to close out the season. A fresher Wacha could also be a better buy on FantasyScore down the stretch.

Cardinals | Michael Wacha scratched from start

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 13:06:22 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha (undisclosed) was scracthed from his start Wednesday, Sept. 2. SP Tyler Lyons will start against the Washington Nationals Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Wacha ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) in daily contests Wednesday, and you'll also want to check back for further details on why he was scratched. Lyons owns a 5.02 ERA over his six starts this season, and he shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a desperation play in any fantasy format Wednesday.

Cardinals | Michael Wacha allows four unearned runs

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 06:04:15 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha allowed four unearned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out six batters during the Cardinals' 5-4 loss to the San Francisco Giants Friday, Aug. 28. Wacha did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Tip: Wacha's ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) ERA is down to 2.69 for the season, and he has a 1.40 ERA over his past seven starts with 40 strikeouts over 45 innings. It could be suggested that there is risk with Wacha's workload far exceeding his previous career high of 107 innings, but at this point, he appears absolutely fine. Continue to view him as a fringe No. 1 starter in all mixed leagues, and he is likely underpriced at FanasyScore.

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 23:25:29 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha allowed one run on six hits Monday, Aug. 17, against the San Francisco Giants. He did not get the decision and missed out on his 15th win.

Fantasy Tip: Wacha ($8,000, 16.0% of cap) pitched a very good game as usual, cementing his status as a must start in FantasyScore, but he didn't get a lot of run support. Continue using him in your lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Wacha ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) has now had back-to-back scoreless outings, after he allowed 13 earned runs in his previous three starts. Wacha appears to be back on track, and FantasyScore owners should be using him accordingly.
