Cardinals | John Lackey shines vs. Brewers

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 14:19:58 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP John Lackey struck out eight batters over seven-scoreless innings against the Milwaukee Brewers Thursday, April 16. Lackey allowed just five hits and issued a single walk in the outing.

Fantasy Tip: Lackey ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) should be viewed as a low-end rotation filler in seasonal formats, and in favorable matchups, a worthy FantasyScore flier. It would be unwise to look into one start too much, as the 36-year-old veteran shouldn't be counted on as a must-start, matchup-proof arm.

Cardinals | John Lackey open to extension

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 10:56:55 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals SP John Lackey said he is open to a contract extension, but he said there was "nothing close." Lackey made $15.25 million last year with the Cardinals and Boston Red Sox.

Fantasy Tip: At this stage of Lackey's career, he's not going to be owned in many standard 12-team mixed leagues. However, on a good team like the Cardinals, he could be a nice matchup play in daily leagues like FantasyScore.
