Cardinals | Lance Lynn has mild ankle sprain

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 12:44:00 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Lance Lynn (ankle) is expected to make his next scheduled start after suffering a mild right ankle sprain in his start against the San Francisco Giants Saturday, Aug. 29. He had limited swelling around the ankle and was able to move around the clubhouse without much difficulty following the game, although the ankle was still tender.

Fantasy Tip: Lynn ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) is tentatively scheduled to make his next start against the Pittsburgh Pirates Friday, Sept. 4. He tossed seven scoreless innings before exiting Saturday, allowing just six hits and two walks while striking out two and picking up the victory. FantasyScore owners may want to avoid using him in his next outing just to be on the safe side.

Cardinals | Mark Reynolds returns to lineup

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 11:40:06 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B/OF Mark Reynolds will bat sixth and play first base against San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston Sunday, Aug. 30. 1B/OF Brandon Moss, who played first base Saturday, Aug. 29, will start in left field and bat seventh Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Reynolds ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is 7-for-20 at the plate over the last seven days, making him worthy of FantasyScore consideration if you want an inexpensive option at first base this afternoon. On the other hand, Moss ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is only batting .216 this month and should be avoided.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta not in lineup

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 11:30:13 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta is not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston Sunday, Aug. 30. INF Greg Garcia will play shortstop and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Peralta ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) from all fantasy lineups. Garcia ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is hitting just .133 in 15 at-bats this month and is not a great FantasyScore option.

Cardinals | Stephen Piscotty playing center field

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 11:20:06 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B/OF Stephen Piscotty will bat second and play center field against San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston Sunday, Aug. 30. OF Thomas Pham is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Piscotty ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is 12-for-24 with two home runs and 10 RBIs over the past week and should continue to be used in FantasyScore lineups as long as his hot hitting continues.

Cardinals | Lance Lynn leaves game

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 16:20:10 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Lance Lynn (ankle) left his start early Saturday, Aug. 29, because of a mild right ankle sprain.

Fantasy Tip: There is a chance Lynn ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) could be held out of his next start, so owners should look for an update on his status over the next few days. Lynn is a solid starting option against most opponents when healthy.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward returns to lineup

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:17:49 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward is back in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong Saturday, Aug. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is batting .304 over the past week and is 4-for-11 with a double and a home run in his career against Vogelsong, making him a solid FantasyScore option this afternoon.

Cardinals | Brandon Moss playing first base

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:04:51 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B/OF Brandon Moss is batting eighth and starting at first base against San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong Saturday, Aug. 29. 1B/OF Mark Reynolds is not in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Moss ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is batting just .208 this month and is hitless in four career at-bats versus Vogelsong. Better first base options are available in FantasyScore this afternoon.

Cardinals | Michael Wacha allows four unearned runs

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 06:04:15 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha allowed four unearned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out six batters during the Cardinals' 5-4 loss to the San Francisco Giants Friday, Aug. 28. Wacha did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Tip: Wacha's ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) ERA is down to 2.69 for the season, and he has a 1.40 ERA over his past seven starts with 40 strikeouts over 45 innings. It could be suggested that there is risk with Wacha's workload far exceeding his previous career high of 107 innings, but at this point, he appears absolutely fine. Continue to view him as a fringe No. 1 starter in all mixed leagues, and he is likely underpriced at FanasyScore.

Cardinals | Jon Jay could rehab Friday

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 09:34:31 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jon Jay (wrist) could begin a rehab assignment Friday, Aug. 28, at Class AAA Memphis.

Fantasy Tip: Jay ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) would likely see the bulk of the playing time in center upon returning. Keep an eye on him for NL-only usage and for a low-end FantasyScore flyer.

Cardinals | Stephen Piscotty sitting out

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 16:20:43 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Stephen Piscotty is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa Thursday, Aug. 27. OF Brandon Moss will start in left field and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Piscotty ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return soon. Moss ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is hitting only .190 with one RBI this month and probably is not a great starting option.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina not in the lineup

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 16:04:50 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa Thursday, Aug. 27. C Tony Cruz will start at catcher and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Molina ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the next game or two. Cruz ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting .177 in limited playing time this season and should not be a starting option on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Matt Carpenter to play at 1B

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 15:50:46 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter will start at first base against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa Thursday, Aug. 27, and is batting first. 3B Greg Garcia will start at third base and is batting eighth, while 1B Mark Reynolds is not in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Carpenter ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has not seen a lot of playing time at first base but is should not affect his fantasy value. Garcia ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is hitting .298 in limited playing time this season, but owners on FantasyScore may be able to better options to use.

Cardinals | Trevor Rosenthal out this weekend

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 05:20:41 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals RP Trevor Rosenthal will stay in St. Louis for the birth of his daughter as the team travels to San Francisco for a weekend series against the Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Kevin Siegrist has been the most common arm to fill in for saves, but Steve Cishek is also an option.

Cardinals | John Lackey limiting opponents

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 13:00:36 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP John Lackey has allowed two runs or fewer in 11 of his last 13 starts and three or fewer in 21 of his 25 starts this season. Lackey is starting against the Arizona Diamondbacks Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Lackey ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) is having a bounce-back season, but he doesn't pile on the strikeouts which limits his upside in all formats, but especially at FantasyScore. He is a solid No. 2 starting pitcher option in daily contests, albeit an expensive one. The Diamondbacks aren't a slam-dunk matchup, either. They've got a top-10 OPS (.758) in August.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong shortens up swing

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 11:01:31 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong recorded his second multi-hit game of the month in the team's win Tuesday, Aug. 25, after entering the game with just two hits in his previous 29 at-bats. Wong was unexpectedly benched last Friday and received days off Sunday, Aug. 23, and Monday, Aug. 24. Wong used the time off to clear his head and to focus on making tweaks to his swing, which he had noticed was getting too long. A shorter swing helped snap his slump Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Wong's ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) recent slump means he's probably being avoided by the majority of users on FantasyScore. You might want to do the same, but after rejoining the hit column last night, he could be on the verge of producing nice numbers once again. Don't blindly avoid him for your daily formats moving forward.
