Cardinals | Matt Adams not in lineup

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 15:10:52 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 24, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. OF Matt Holliday is playing first base against Dodgers SP Scott Kazmir.

Fantasy Tip: Adams is a lefty, so he is out of the lineup against Kazmir this evening. Holliday is definitely worth the start in all formats.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta could start swinging

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 18:34:52 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Jhonny Peralta (thumb) hopes to be cleared to resume swinging a bat within the next two days.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta landed on the disabled list earlier this week because of continued discomfort in his surgically-repaired left thumb but the possibility of him resuming hitting soon is a good sign. INF Jedd Gyorko is likely to see the bulk of the action at the hot corner while Peralta remains sidelined and he's worthy of consideration for NL-only and cavernous mixed fantasy leagues.

Cardinals | Mike Mayers to start Sunday

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 15:37:00 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Mike Mayers will be called up to start Sunday, July 24, against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Fantasy Tip: Mayers is 3-3 with a 2.94 ERA in nine starts at Class AAA Memphis. He has 43 K's in 52 innings, and it'll be his major league debut. He's a fringe flyer in DFS Sunday.

Cardinals | Jedd Gyorko hitting fifth

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 14:24:17 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Jedd Gyorko is hitting fifth Saturday, July 23.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko has a .435-5-8 line the last week, and he's a good, low-end option against Kenta Maeda.

Cardinals | Wholesale changes for Cards

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 14:23:47 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Greg Garcia is leading off Saturday, July 23, OF Jeremy Hazelbaker is hitting sixth and C Alberto Rosario hits eighth. 2B Kolten Wong, OF Matt Holliday and C Yadier Molina are out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia has cooled a bit, but he's still hitting .314. He has upside at leadoff against Kenta Maeda. Hazelbaker and Rosario don't offer much for DFS purposes.

Cardinals | Michael Wacha limits damage in ND

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 23:16:26 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha allowed 11 base runners -- 10 hits, one base on balls -- but surrendered just two runs over six innings against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday, July 22. It was Wacha's third straight no-decision.

Fantasy Tip: Wacha hasn't lost since June 17, but he has followed three consecutive wins with three no-decisions, looking less than dominant in the process. There still haven't been many signs that the 17-7 version from 2015 will be making an appearance this year, however, and Wacha has become a hard sell in standard leagues.

Cardinals | Jedd Gyorko stays red hot

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 22:57:50 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Jedd Gyorko was 2-for-5 with a game-tying solo home run off Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen with two outs in the ninth inning on Friday, July 22. The Cardinals would go on to win, 4-3, in 16 innings.

Fantasy Tip: In his last 10 games, Gyorko is 14-for-35 (.400) with five HRs, 10 RBI and nine runs scored. That stretch has moved his season average up 30 points, and Gyorko is suddenly a viable option in deeper mixed leagues -- at least until Matt Carpenter or Jhonny Peralta return from injury.

Cardinals | Matt Adams delivers walk-off home run

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 22:46:31 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams was 1-for-6 against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday, July 22, delivering a walk-off home run in the bottom of the 16th inning.

Fantasy Tip: It has been a rough month for Adams (.140-1-5 in 43 ABs prior to the HR), but perhaps Friday night's big blast will get him rolling again. At this stage, however, the husky first baseman is primarily an NL-only and deep mixed option.

Cardinals | Stephen Piscotty hitless in seven ABs

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 22:41:29 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Stephen Piscotty was 0-for-7 during a 16-inning game against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Piscotty was hot until the team's July 19th contest was rained out. In four games since, the outfielder is 2-for-17, dropping his average from .299 to .291; on the bright side, one of those two hits was a game-tying three-run jack on Thursday. Keep Piscotty in your active lineup.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday has night to forget

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 22:28:08 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday went 0-for-7 with two strikeouts against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: A lifetime .304 hitter, Holliday's 0-for-7 showing dropped his 2016 average to .238, and it remains a sore spot amid otherwise strong power numbers. The 36-year-old is still a middling starting option in standard leagues.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday returns to action

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:59:28 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (nose) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting cleanup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brandon McCarthy Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Holliday had a scary moment Thursday when a pitch hit his nose and upper lip, causing him to gush blood. But he's back in there and should remain in all starting lineups. He's hitting just .244 but has 17 long balls and 55 RBI and should remain a key cog for fantasy owners in the second half.

Cardinals | Randal Grichuk out vs. L.A.

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:53:46 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 22. OF Tommy Pham is starting in center field and is hitting leadoff against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brandon McCarthy.

Fantasy Tip: Pham is likely flying under the radar in deeper leagues, but this guy can hit and could steal playing time from Grichuk. Pham has batted .298 with three home runs and five RBI in the month of July and is worth a peek on the waiver wire in deep mixed and NL-only universes if he continues to see playing time.

Cardinals | Brandon Moss not quite there

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 14:31:18 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Brandon Moss (ankle) said the only thing holding him back right now is baserunning. Moss said cutting around the bases bothers him.

Fantasy Tip: Moss is slated to start a rehab assignment early next week, so his return doesn't look to be far off. He's hitting only .256 this year, but his 17 homers and 40 RBI certainly play in most deep mixed and NL-only leagues. He's also a great value play when he's in the lineup against certain right-handers in daily leagues.

Cardinals | Matt Carpenter doing baseball activities

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 14:21:50 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter (oblique) has been cleared to resume limited baseball activities, and he's been fielding groundballs and throwing to first.

Fantasy Tip: He was initially slated for a four- to six-week recovery timeline, but oblique injuries can often be tricky. It's a good sign he's already starting baseball activities, though. The All-Star third baseman should be stashed everywhere with his .298/.420/.568 slash line, 14 homers and 53 RBI. Jedd Gyorko is now seeing regular playing time on the infield and is mashing homers of late. Consider adding him off the waiver wire in the short term in deeper leagues for his power.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday's nose not fractured

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 08:58:13 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (nose) didn't suffer a fractured nose after being hit by a pitch Thursday, July 21, but he has a facial abrasion by his nose and upper lip. Manager Mike Matheny said Holliday didn't have concussion symptoms, either. He's listed as day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Holliday appears to have dodged a bullet here, but don't be surprised if the Cardinals hold him out for a game or two to be safe. Plan for that with your lineups. Holliday has kind of flown under the radar with a .244 average, 17 home runs and 55 RBI, but a low BABIP in the first half suggests he'll be much better from here on out, and he continues to make plenty of hard contact.
