Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta sitting out

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 12:10:00 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Jhonny Peralta is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton Sunday, June 26. 2B Jedd Gyorko will start at third base and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko has received occasional start this month and is hitting only .167 during that span. He has not recorded an RBI in his last 10 games and probably should be avoided in most leagues.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta hitting cleanup

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 15:31:17 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS/3B Jhonny Peralta is hitting cleanup Saturday, June 11.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta is 18-for-53 (.340) with four homers and eight RBI off tonight's starter Francisco Liriano. He's a high-end option that could come at a discount in DFS.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta out Thursday

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 11:59:38 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS/3B Jhonny Peralta is out of the lineup Thursday, June 9, with 2B/SS Jedd Gyorko taking his place.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko has had trouble finding playing time but has a decent .255-6-16 line in 106 at-bats. He's a low-end consideration against left-hander Brandon Finnegan.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta solid in debut

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 23:22:03 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta went 2-for-4 with two doubles and two RBI in his season debut Tuesday, June 7.

Fantasy Tip: It's a positive sign in his first game back from a torn thumb ligament, but his power really tailed off last season with four second-half homers. It might be tough for him to reach 10 homers this year, but he should still be a solid, run-producing option in the upper middle.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta hitting fifth

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 13:46:14 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta is starting at third base and is batting fifth against Cincinnati Reds SP John Lamb Tuesday, June 7, in his return from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta should've been stashed in all formats, so if he's available in your league, scoop him up right away. He's yet to play in 2016 but hit .263 with 21 home runs and 75 RBI in 2015. Those kind of numbers are invaluable from the shortstop position in fantasy, and Peralta will add third base eligibility to make him even more valuable.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta activated

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 09:33:42 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta (thumb) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, June 7.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta hit .231 in 26 rehab at-bats and may require some time to kick the rust off. He's a midrange option at the position in traditional leagues, but he's probably not a strong DFS option for now.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta to be activated Tuesday

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 13:30:23 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta (thumb) is expected to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday, June 7.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta is set to be the full-time starter at the hot corner, which will quickly provide fantasy owners with positional eligibility there and at shortstop. He isn't going to help in the stolen base column, but Peralta moves the needle across the other four standard categories and is a viable option in the majority of seasonal leagues.

Cardinals | Matt Carpenter moving back to 2B

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 10:17:54 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter will shift over to second base when SS Jhonny Peralta (thumb), who will take over third base, returns from the disabled list. SS Aledmys Diaz will remain at shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: This does not bode well at all for Kolten Wong, who is flirting with becoming useless in most leagues if he regularly winds up on the bench. At the same time, it is wonderful news for Diaz, who obviously performed well enough while Peralta was out to keep his place in the starting lineup. Peralta, meanwhile, is someone to seek out if he's on any waiver wires. As for Carpenter, he's returning to the position he played in the beginning of his career, and the added second base eligibility will make Carp much more valuable in 2017.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta to return Tuesday

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 10:06:01 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta (thumb) is slated to play this weekend with Class A Palm Beach. The plan is for him to then join the major league club on Tuesday, June 7, according to general manager John Mozeliak.

Fantasy Tip: That's when Peralta can be activated from the disabled list, so he'll be returning as scheduled. If he's on any waiver wires, owners would be wise to stash him as quickly as possible, as he was still going strong last year when he hit .275 with 17 homers and 71 RBI. Kolten Wong should most likely become the odd man out as a result of Peralta's return, which will severely damage his value.

Cardinals | No timetable for Jhonny Peralta

Mon, 30 May 2016 12:46:11 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta (thumb) has not been on the field since cutting his right thumb Saturday, May 28, and has no timetable for when he will begin playing again, the team announced Monday, May 30.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to stash Peralta and check back for updates on his recovery and expected return timeline. He is a viable option in the majority of seasonal leagues when healthy, but there will be some playing time concerns that'll need to be worked out, so keep your expectations in check.
