Cardinals | John Lackey unbeatable in the Lou

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 21:15:10 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP John Lackey is the probable starter for Wednesday, July 1, against the Chicago White Sox. He is 7-1 with a 2.08 ERA in 13 career starts in St. Louis, and he is 5-1 with a 1.91 ERA at home this season.

Fantasy Tip: Lackey ($6,300; or 12.6% of cap) is a solid play in FantasyScore, especially considering he is up against Jose Quintana, who is 2-6 over his past 12 starts, mainly due to a lack of run support.

Fantasy Tip: Lackey ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has allowed only five earned runs in his four starts in May and has 22 strikeouts during that span. Lackey is scheduled to pitch against the Kansas City Royals in his next start and may be a risky option on FantasyScore.

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.
