St. Louis Cardinals news, rumors and injuries

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on Heyward ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) and how he fares in the post-game examination. Jon Jay will likely see more starts if Heyward has to miss some time. This is a bad break for St. Louis because Heyward was just starting to find his plate stroke.

Fantasy Tip: It has not been a great series for the Cardinals, who have seen Yadier Molina, Adam Wainwright and Heyward ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) get injured this weekend. If Heyward is sidelined for an extended period of time, OF Jon Jay ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) and INF/OF Mark Reynolds ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) could wind up sharing playing time in right field.

St. Louis Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said he believes SP Adam Wainwright (Achilles') will not pitch again this season, although the club wants to wait for the results of the MRI exam Monday, April 27.
Fantasy Tip: Owners should continue to monitor this situation given the seriousness of Wainwright's injury. For the time being, seasonal owners should not make any hasty roster decisions until an official announcement of his injury status and return timetable has been established. Lance Lynn ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is expected to assume the role of the team's ace and is a solid option on FantasyScore in most matchups.

Fantasy Tip: Bourjos ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has gone hitless in his six at-bats this season, but has stolen three bases in his limited time. He may not be a great option for owners on FantasyScore to use Sunday.
Sun, 26 Apr 2015 09:03:27 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Reynolds ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has been used as mostly a pinch hitter this season but this will be one of his few starts. He has gone 4-for-20 so far this season and has posted only two RBI. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use.
Sun, 26 Apr 2015 08:59:44 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Jay ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) probably is receiving a rest and should return to the lineup for the next game. Peter Bourjos ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) will start in center field but is not a must-start option for owners on FantasyScore.
Sun, 26 Apr 2015 08:54:34 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Holliday ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has seen playing time in every game this season and is just receiving a day off. Mark Reynolds ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is taking his place in the lineup but is not a strong starting option for owners on FantasyScore.
Sun, 26 Apr 2015 08:48:00 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Molina ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is considered day-to-day, so owners should look for any updates in the next day or two. Cruz ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has gone 2-for-9 in his limited at-bats this season and could be avoided by owners on FantasyScore.
Sun, 26 Apr 2015 08:10:09 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor this situation since there have been reports that Wainwright will miss the rest of the season. Lance Lynn ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) likely will become the ace of the staff if Wainwright is ruled out and would be a solid option on FantasyScore against most teams.
Sun, 26 Apr 2015 06:34:18 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners will want to wait for an official announcement, but this obviously is horrible news for Wainwright. Continue to check back for updates and don't make any hasty roster moves without confirmation of his injury status and return timetable. The obvious candidate to join the rotation is top-prospect Marco Gonzales, but he is currently on minor league disabled list. Expect more news to develop after Wainwright's MRI Monday, April 27.

Fantasy Tip: Wainwright ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) threw four scoreless innings prior to exiting, lowering his ERA to 1.44. He has been a stud at FantasyScore in 2015, but stay tuned for updates on the severity of his injury.

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina (knee) is not in the starting lineup against the Milwaukee Brewers Saturday, April 25. He is listed as day-to-day after taking a foul tip off his right knee. Tony Cruz will start behind the plate.
Fantasy Tip: Cruz ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should only be considered by FantasyScore owners who generally punt the catcher position in order to spend more cap money at other positions.
Thu, 23 Apr 2015 19:12:26 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Although Bourjos ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) will be available Friday, he has just four at-bats in seven games this year and should be considered a non-factor at FantasyScore.
Thu, 23 Apr 2015 19:06:39 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Molina ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) received the day off Thursday, April 23, and he should be refreshed for a matchup with the Brewers Friday. Matt Garza will be on the mound for Milwaukee, and he is allowing opponents to hit .300 this season. Molina should make a safe, solid option at the catcher spot at FantasyScore.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha improved to 3-0 with a win Thursday, April 23, allowing one earned run on five hits in seven innings to best Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer. His victory over Scherzer followed a pair of wins over Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto.
Fantasy Tip: Wacha ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) has allowed five hits and just one earned run in each of his three starts this year, and he has yet to lose despite facing some tough competition. Needless to say, he makes a great starting option at FantasyScore right now regardless of who opposes him on the mound.
