Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta could be moved around

Thu, 05 May 2016 15:08:40 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta (thumb) could play some first or third base in addition to shortstop when he returns from the disabled list in order to keep SS Aledmys Diaz's bat in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta should remain stashed in all fantasy formats. It's unknown if he'll play any other position enough to gain eligibility at a position other than shortstop, but it's probably unlikely. The biggest takeaway is that Diaz's scorching start out of nowhere has earned him a spot on the roster for the rest of the year, most likely.

Cardinals | Brandon Moss launches seventh HR

Thu, 05 May 2016 14:20:34 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B/OF Brandon Moss was only 1-for-4 with a run and an RBI Thursday, May 5, versus the Philadelphia Phillies, but his one hit went for his seventh home run of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Moss would be much more valuable in fantasy if he were to simply receive more starts. Even as it is, he might be worth adding if he's still on the waiver wire, as Randall Grichuk's continued struggles could lead to more at-bats for the veteran. Moss leads the team in homers and if he keeps it up, the team will have no choice but to regularly insert him into the lineup.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia twirls gem in win

Thu, 05 May 2016 13:56:51 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia improved to 2-2 with a victory on Thursday, May 5, over the Philadelphia Phillies. He was excellent, throwing seven shutout innings, scattering only two hits and striking out five.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia's sensational comeback story continues. Many fantasy owners didn't know what to expect from the 29-year-old last season when he made 20 starts for the first time in three years. He ended up pitching to the tune of a stellar 2.43 ERA and 1.05 WHIP, while going 10-6, and this year, he's picked up right where he left off. Garcia will carry a 3.05 ERA into his seventh start of the campaign next week.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong turning a corner?

Thu, 05 May 2016 12:17:59 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong had his first extra-base hit Monday, May 2, a solo home run in his 60th at-bat of the season. He has shown a more disciplined approach since Monday, working two walks the last two games. "Kolten's at-bats the last few games that he's been in look significantly better," manager Mike Matheny said. "He looks like he's in a good place. We just have to try and keep building on that."

Fantasy Tip: Wong has been a huge disappointment this year, slashing .226/.315/.274 with the one home run and four RBI. He missed a decent stretch of time with an illness, and that hasn't helped him lock in at the plate. Not to mention he has lost playing time against lefties to Jedd Gyorko. There's a chance he's been dropped in mixed leagues. There's no guarantee he'll turn things around or play every day, but if he does, look to acquire him immediately.

Cardinals | Matt Adams leaves game with knee injury

Thu, 05 May 2016 12:03:37 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams (knee) left the game against the Philadelphia Phillies with a left knee contusion Thursday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: Adams entered the game with an active 7-for-17 run with two home runs and four RBI, which was a nice sign after his slow start (8-for-38). There are a lot of moving parts for the Cardinals, so if Adams misses time, Brandon Moss and Randal Grichuk would both receive a slight boost in playing time. Stay tuned for updates.

Cardinals | Matt Adams playing often

Thu, 05 May 2016 08:29:22 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams is hitting cleanup Thursday, May 5, in what is his fifth start in the last seven days.

Fantasy Tip: Adams is 7-for-20 (.350) with a couple of homers during the stretch, and he's a lower-middle option against Jared Eickhoff today.

Cardinals | Three Cards out Thursday

Thu, 05 May 2016 08:21:31 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Aledmys Diaz, OF Randal Grichuk and OF Matt Holliday are out of the lineup Thursday, May 5. OF Brandon Moss is hitting third, OF Jeremy Hazelbaker is hitting sixth and SS Ruben Tejada hits eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Moss is an interesting choice to hit third considering he is hitting .233 with 25 K's in 73 at-bats. He does have six homers and 16 RBI, so he's worth some low-end consideration against Jerad Eickhoff. Hazelbaker has cooled considerably since a storybook first two weeks. He's hitting .212 with two homers the last 15 games. He's a bleak low-end flyer. Tejada doesn't pack enough offensive punch to consider in DFS today.

Cardinals | Tommy Pham rehab update

Wed, 04 May 2016 18:50:21 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Tommy Pham (oblique) went 1-for-2 with two RBI, a walk and a stolen base in his first rehab game with Class AAA Memphis Wednesday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Once he is activated from the disabled list, Pham is unlikely to see enough playing time in the Cards' crowded outfield to be worth rostering outside of NL-only fantasy leagues.

Cardinals | Matt Carpenter on the bench

Wed, 04 May 2016 14:58:36 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter is not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan Wednesday, May 4. SS Ruben Tejada will start at third base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada has gone 2-for-9 over the last seven days and hitting only .188 this season. He posted decent numbers against left-handed pitchers last season but is not a strong option for most owners.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong not in the lineup

Wed, 04 May 2016 14:53:09 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong is not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan Wednesday, May 4. 2B Jedd Gyorko will start at second base and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko has only two hits in his last six games and may not be the best starting candidate for owners in daily fantasy leagues.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina starting at 1B

Wed, 04 May 2016 14:43:10 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina will start at first base against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan Wednesday, May 4, and 1B Matt Adams and 1B Brandon Moss will start on the bench against a left-handed pitcher. C Eric Fryer will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Molina is hitting .333 with 10 RBI this season and should be a starting candidate in all leagues. Fryer is hitting .667 in his limited playing time and could be sleeper option for daily fantasy owners.

Cardinals | Aledmys Diaz leading off

Wed, 04 May 2016 14:41:33 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Aledmys Diaz is batting first in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan Wednesday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Diaz likely will not see much time in the leadoff spot but it will help his value in daily fantasy leagues. He is hitting .182 over the last seven days but does have two home runs and three RBI during that span. Diaz has been a terrific fantasy option for owners during the first month of the season and could continue to be used.

Cardinals | Tommy Pham begins rehab stint

Wed, 04 May 2016 07:55:02 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Tommy Pham (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment at Class AAA Memphis Wednesday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Pham likely won't see enough playing time in the crowded outfield for mixed leagues, but he's worth having in NL-only leagues for depth.

Cardinals | Michael Wacha brilliant in loss

Tue, 03 May 2016 23:31:03 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha allowed one run on five hits and three walks while fanning eight in eight innings during his loss to the Philadelphia Phillies Tuesday, May 3.

Fantasy Tip: Wacha is 2-2 with a 2.65 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP. The WHIP is a little high as he has been hit a little bit more, but Wacha is a solid option in DFS after the elite tiers.

Cardinals | Matt Adams at first base Tuesday

Tue, 03 May 2016 15:25:59 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams is starting at first base and hitting cleanup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Nola Tuesday, May 3. 1B Brandon Moss will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Adams has been seeing pretty regular at-bats at first base of late, hitting .400 (6-for-15) with two long balls and four RBI. Mike Matheny may just be riding the hot hand, but whatever the case, Adams is a fine pick in daily formats tonight while hitting cleanup. If Adams is available in your mixed league and you're hunting for power, give him a look.
