St. Louis Cardinals SP John Lackey will start Sunday, August 3, against the Milwaukee Brewers, according to manager Mike Matheny.

The Boston Red Sox acquired OF Allen Craig and SP Joe Kelly from the St. Louis Cardinals Thursday, July 31, in exchange for SP John Lackey.
Fantasy Tip: Well then. Craig has been a former shell of himself this year, but the move to Boston could spark a turnaround in a more hitter-friendly environment. He'll also see more consistent playing time in Beantown. Kelly hasn't excited since his return from the DL, and he won't be any more intriguing with the move to the AL East.
Back in St. Louis, the departure of Craig opens up everyday PT for Oscar Taveras. Everyday at-bats should be good for the youngster, and it could elevate his play to levels that we've expected of him. He should be owned everywhere now.
