Cardinals | No timetable for Matt Holliday's return

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 18:21:26 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (quadriceps) received a platelet-rich plasma injection for his strained right quadriceps Thursday, July 30. There is no timetable for his return, although he believes that he'll return to action "soon."

Fantasy Tip: Expect the Cardinals to be cautious with Holliday ($4,900, 9.8% of cap), with the team hoping to make a deep playoff run. For the time being, Brandon Moss ($4,500, 9.0% of cap), Stephen Piscotty ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) and Mark Reynolds ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) are projected to split time between first base and left field.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday has Grade 2 strain

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 13:31:29 -0700

Updating a previous report, St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (quadriceps) has a Grade 2 quadriceps strain, according to general manger John Mozeliak. The organization is optimistic Holliday will return before the end of the season, though.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners should be less optimistic, especially considering he'll likely be eased back into action with plenty of caution. St. Louis is eyeing a deep playoff run, and they're not going to take any chances with Holliday ($4,900, 9.8% of cap). Brandon Moss ($4,500, 9.0% of cap), Stephen Piscotty ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) and Mark Reynolds ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) will likely rotate in and out of the lineup at first base and left field.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday officially placed on DL

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 11:41:37 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (quadriceps) was officially placed on the disabled list Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Check back for a return timeline for Holliday ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) before making any hasty fantasy decisions. Although, given he missed six weeks with a right quadriceps injury already this season, it might be wishful thinking to expect any fantasy returns from him again in 2015. Plus, with the high hopes for a deep playoff run, the Cardinals will be extremely cautious with him. Newcomer Brandon Moss ($4,500, 9.0% of cap), Stephen Piscotty ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) and Mark Reynolds ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) project to rotate in and out of the lineup at left field and first base in Holliday's absence.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday to have MRI

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 20:48:14 -0700

Updating a previous report, St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (quadriceps) will have an MRI Wednesday, July 29, to determine the severity of the quadriceps injury he suffered in a loss against the Cincinnati Reds.

Fantasy Tip: Holliday ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) should obviously be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks. Mark Reynolds ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) came on to play first base, with Stephen Piscotty ($3,700, 7.4%) moving to the outfield. That could be the setup moving forward if Holliday misses time.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday resting

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:46:25 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 27. OF Stephen Piscotty is starting in left field and hitting sixth against Cincinnati Reds SP Raisel Iglesias.

Fantasy Tip: Piscotty ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has four hits in his first 12 at-bats (.333) for the Cardinals after being called up last week. He's mainly a line-drive hitter that is developing a power stroke, and he can also run a little bit. You can do much worse than Piscotty when searching for an under-the-radar value play at outfield.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday serves as DH again

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 22:12:37 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (quadriceps) served as the designated hitter for the second straight game Wednesday, July 22, against the Chicago White Sox. He has yet to be cleared to run at full speed yet.

Fantasy Tip: Holliday ($4,900; or 9.8% of cap) had a single in three at-bats. He might not be able to run at full speed, but he had a grand slam Tuesday and is still a fine FantasyScore play.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday cracks grand slam

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 21:53:45 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday hit his sixth career grand slam in a win Tuesday, July 21, against the Chicago White Sox. He finished 2-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored.

Fantasy Tip: Holliday ($4,900; or 9.8% of cap) had his best game since returning from the 15-day disabled list. It appears safe to use him again in FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday out of the lineup

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 10:39:38 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Jon Niese Sunday, July 19. OF Tommy Pham will start in right field and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: The team likely is taking things slow with Holliday ($4,000, 8.0% of cap), so he is receiving a day off. Pham ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has only three hits in his last seven games, and owners likely will be able to find better options to use.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday hitless in return

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 21:27:46 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (quadriceps) went 0-for-3 in a 3-2 win over the New York Mets Friday, July 17, in his first start since being activated from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Holliday ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) hasn't found his power stroke this year, and while his batting average remains solid, he doesn't offer much upside at FantasyScore right now.
