Cardinals | Aledmys Diaz back in the lineup

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 13:57:23 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Aledmys Diaz (eye) is starting at shortstop and batting second against Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza Friday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Diaz should be returned to starting lineups in all settings, as he's emerged as a reliable starting shortstop thus far in 2016. He sits with an impressive 50 runs, 10 home runs, 40 RBI with a .316/.374/.523 slash line, after all.

Cardinals | Kevin Siegrist placed on DL

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 13:50:23 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals RP Kevin Siegrist (illness) was placed on the disabled list with mononucleosis Friday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Through the past four seasons, Siegrist has proven to be a viable option in deep mixed leagues and has returned 16 wins and seven saves with a 2.69 ERA, a 1.14 WHIP and 10.7 K/9. However, the injury should keep Siegrist out long enough that he can be dropped in most cases. Seung-Hwan Oh projects to be the go-to closer for the immediate future with Siegrist out.

Cardinals | Randal Grichuk hitting in minors

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 10:37:36 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk had two home runs in the minors Thursday, June 30, and has seen a drop in strikeouts in five games for Class AAA Memphis. He has a four-game hitting streak (5-for-17, .294) with one strikeout and four RBI.

Fantasy Tip: If he keeps this up, Grichuk will surely be back with the Red Birds in the second half of the season. There is plenty of potential here with power and speed, but until he's back in the majors he shouldn't be clogging up a roster spot in mixed leagues. Kolten Wong has been seeing the majority of starts in center for St. Louis of late.

Cardinals | Mike Leake tagged with loss Thursday

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 19:15:53 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Mike Leake (5-6) allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits over seven innings in a loss to the Kansas City Royals Thursday, June 30, with one walk and four strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the loss, Leake has tossed three quality starts in his last four outings. He should continue to be viewed as a decent option in NL-only and deep mixed fantasy leagues and a mid-tier consideration for DFS. Leake's next scheduled start will come versus the Pittsburgh Pirates Tuesday, July 5.

Cardinals | Aledmys Diaz, Stephen Piscotty available

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 15:10:49 -0700

Updating a previous report, St. Louis Cardinals SS Aledmys Diaz (eye) and Stephen Piscotty (ankle) are available off the bench for the game against the Kansas City Royals Thursday, June 30, according to manager Mike Matheny.

Fantasy Tip: Diaz and Piscotty stand to return to the starting lineup sooner than later, but you'll still want to double-check their statuses before locking them into your lineups Friday, July 1, especially in daily contests. Both are viable starters in all seasonal setups.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina receives day off

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 15:08:22 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina (rest) is not in the lineup Thursday, June 30, versus the Kansas City Royals. C Brayan Pena gets the start behind the plate in his place and will hit seventh against SP Chris R. Young.

Fantasy Tip: It's just a day off for Molina, who should return to the batting order on Friday. The backup veteran Pena will get some rare playing time as a result, but isn't really worth much of a look in daily games for this evening.

Cardinals | Aledmys Diaz remains out

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 14:49:39 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Aledmys Diaz (eye) is not in the lineup Thursday, June 30, against the Kansas City Royals. SS Greg Garcia is starting at shortstop again in his place and batting eighth opposite SP Chris Young.

Fantasy Tip: Diaz is missing his third straight game here, and based on how nasty his eye injury looked a few days ago, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him miss some more, though a stint on the disabled list fortunately hasn't been discussed yet. Garcia will continue to benefit as long as he's out, but doesn't really have a high ceiling, especially in limited games.

Cardinals | Stephen Piscotty out Thursday

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 14:29:10 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Stephen Piscotty (ankle) is not in the lineup Thursday, June 30, versus the Kansas City Royals. 1B/OF Brandon Moss will cover right field and bat cleanup, while 2B/OF Kolten Wong draws a start in center field and hits second against SP Chris Young.

Fantasy Tip: Piscotty injured his left ankle in Wednesday's contest, and it looks like it's enough to keep him out for one ballgame, if not more. As long he remains out, this benefits both Moss and Wong, who would each see more playing time in the outfield as a result.

Cardinals | Stephen Piscotty injures ankle

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 23:18:27 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Stephen Piscotty (ankle) had swelling in his ankle after the game on Wednesday, June 29. He fouled a ball off of it during the sixth inning and then was struck by a ball in the field in the 12th. It's unclear if he'll be available Thursday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Piscotty hit a game-tying home run in the 10th but misplayed a ball in the 12th, and it ended up striking his ankle. Keep an eye out tomorrow to see if he's in the lineup or if he needs time to rest.

Cardinals | Carlos Martinez works six scoreless

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 22:10:06 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez allowed no runs on eight hits over six innings against the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday, June 29. He walked one and struck out three.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez is locked in right now, allowing just one run in 20 innings over his last three starts. The problem: he hasn't won a single one of them. You have to figure things will even themselves out, and Martinez will start collecting the "Ws" befitting someone pitching as well as he is. Keep him plugged into your lineup.

Cardinals | Aledmys Diaz still sidelined

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 15:06:21 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Aledmys Diaz (eye) remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday, June 29. 2B Greg Garcia starts at shortstop again and is hitting eighth against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez. Also, 3B Jhonny Peralta is hitting in the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Diaz's injury isn't very serious, and he could be back any day now. Get him back into all starting lineups when he's ready, as he's been a top-tier fantasy shortstop mostly all year. Garcia has produced when he's played this year in a small sample size, but he remains more of a low-end DFS attraction.

Cardinals | Matt Carpenter reaches four times

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 22:22:25 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Matt Carpenter went 2-for-3 with a double, solo home run, two runs scored, two walks and two RBIs Tuesday, June 28, against the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: Carpenter is tearing it up in the month of June, hitting .368 (28-for-76) with nine doubles, five home runs and 14 RBIs. He is an outstanding fantasy option across the board and a must-have DFS play until he cools off significantly.

Cardinals | Michael Wacha grabs road win

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 21:44:37 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha allowed four runs - three earned - and nine hits with a walk and four strikeouts over six innings in a win Tuesday, June 28, against the Kansas City Royals. He threw 68 of his 99 pitches for strikes in the quality start.

Fantasy Tip: Wacha is 2-1 with a 3.34 ERA in five starts in the month of June, racking up 25 strikeouts over 32 1/3 innings. He has re-emerged as a must-start in NL-only fantasy leagues, deeper mixed formats and DFS play.

Cardinals | Aledmys Diaz concussion free

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 14:53:04 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, Aledmys Diaz (head) passed the concussion protocol Monday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: This is a good sign for Diaz being available to return sooner than later. Stay tuned for updates and stash Diaz in all fantasy setups, as he has emerged as an excellent starting option at the 6.

Cardinals | Aledmys Diaz set to miss a few games

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 14:44:27 -0700

Updating a previous report, St. Louis Cardinals SS Aledmys Diaz (eye) expects to miss a few games while the swelling subsides above his right eye. Exams confirmed he did not suffer any facial fractures.

Fantasy Tip: With 50 runs, 10 home runs, 40 RBI and a .316/.374/.523 slash line thus far, Diaz has been a fantasy star at the 6. Continue to view him as a solid starting option in all seasonal leagues going forward. In the immediate future, expect Greg Garcia to take care of shortstop while Diaz is out, and Garcia isn't anything more than a desperation grab in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues for his fleeting opportunity.
