Cardinals | Jaime Garcia has positive outing

Thu, 21 May 2015 15:32:00 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia walked five but allowed only two runs in seven innings in a loss to the New York Mets Thursday, May 21, in his first outing since June 20 of last season. He allowed five hits (one home run) and struck out three while throwing 60 of his 102 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: The five walks aside, this was a very positive first step for Garcia ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) in his return to the rotation. If he continues to pitch well, he should stick in the rotation spot that was vacated by the season-ending injury to Adam Wainwright (Achilles'). Be cautious when using Garcia at FantasyScore for a bit longer, but he could be a successful matchup play.

Cardinals | Randal Grichuk hitting fifth Thursday

Thu, 21 May 2015 09:10:54 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk is hitting fifth in the batting order against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom Thursday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Grichuk ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has jumped all over the Red Birds' lineup the past couple days, hitting leadoff two days ago and eighth last night. He has five hits in his last two games and has doubled and tripled in two straight contests. deGrom is holding righties to a slash line of .195/.250/.287 this year and has been much better at home in 2015. Grichuk could struggle to return value today, even at his cheap price.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina receiving day off

Thu, 21 May 2015 08:20:47 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina is not in the starting lineup against the New York Mets Thursday, May 21. C Tony Cruz is batting eighth and starting behind the dish Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Molina ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) in all formats Thursday, and it is likely a scheduled day of rest after the Cards played a night game Wednesday, May 20. Cruz ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has received just 28 plate appearances this season, so FantasyScore players should view him as nothing more than a desperation flier behind the plate.

Cardinals | Mark Reynolds draws into the lineup

Thu, 21 May 2015 08:15:14 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Mark Reynolds is batting seventh and playing left field against the New York Mets Thursday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Reynolds ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has heated up of late, and he has seven runs, two home runs and eight RBI with a .327/.364/.500 slash line over his last 15 games. FantasyScore players should view him as an upside source of cap relief, but Reynolds is somewhat feast or famine at the dish, so he isn't without risk Thursday.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong collects three hits

Wed, 20 May 2015 20:11:47 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong went 3-for-5 with two RBI against the New York Mets Wednesday, May 20.

Fantasy Tip: Wong ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has picked up at least one hit in six of his last seven games and has five RBI in his last four games. Wong is one of the better options at second base and could be a solid option on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday produces at the plate

Wed, 20 May 2015 20:06:45 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday went 3-for-4 with one RBI against the New York Mets Wednesday, May 20.

Fantasy Tip: Holliday ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has seen his batting average drop in May but is still hitting .328 and picked up an RBI in each of his last two games. Owners on FantasyScore could consider Holliday as a solid starting option most nights.

Cardinals | Matt Adams drives in three

Wed, 20 May 2015 20:06:01 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams went 2-for-5 with one home run and three RBI against the New York Mets Wednesday, May 20.

Fantasy Tip: Adams ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been struggling this month but did produce at this play Wednesday. He has at least one hit in only four of his last 12 games. Adams may not be the best option on FantasyScore at this point but could be an option if he produces at the plate on a more consistent basis.

Cardinals | Randal Grichuk hitting eighth

Wed, 20 May 2015 13:56:14 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk is starting in center field and hitting eighth in the batting order against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon Wednesday, May 20, a day after hitting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Grichuk ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) had five strikeouts two days ago and had three hits and two RBI last night, showing that he's mainly been an inconsistent offensive producer in his brief time in the majors. A move to the bottom of the order makes him less attractive at FantasyScore, but for his cheap price, there's not a ton of downside.

Cardinals | Matt Adams back in cleanup spot

Wed, 20 May 2015 13:48:54 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams is back in the cleanup spot against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon Wednesday, May 20.

Fantasy Tip: Adams ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has slumped big time in may, hitting .160 (8-for-50) with 11 strikeouts and just one RBI. However, all three of his homers have come against righties in 2015. Consider Adams an under-the-radar FantasyScore option tonight as a way to gain an advantage on your competition.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong back at leadoff

Wed, 20 May 2015 13:39:51 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong is back in the leadoff spot against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon Wednesday, May 20.

Fantasy Tip: Wong ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) hasn't hit well in the limited at-bats he's had in the leadoff spot this year, but that shouldn't discourage you from clicking on him at FantasyScore. He's hitting .304 (31-for-102) with four of his five home runs off right-handed pitchers, and although Colon is having a fine season so far, he shouldn't scare you away from Wong.

Cardinals | Jon Jay takes some swings

Tue, 19 May 2015 20:46:28 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jon Jay (wrist) took some swings indoors Tuesday, May 19, and also made some throws of the field.

Fantasy Tip: Jay ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is currently on the 15-day disabled list and likely will need to play in some rehab games before he can return. Peter Bourjos ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has been filling in for Jay but is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward resting vs. southpaw

Tue, 19 May 2015 14:33:29 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 19. OF Randal Grichuk is starting in right field and hitting second in the batting order against New York Mets SP Jon Niese.

Fantasy Tip: Grichuk ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) hasn't seen much success in the major leagues early in his career, but he has the tools to produce with enough playing time. Right-handed batters have a .280/.329/.424 slash line off Niese this season, so Grichuk could be a sleeper play that pays off at FantasyScore tonight.

Cardinals | Matt Carpenter not starting Tuesday

Tue, 19 May 2015 12:52:00 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 19, against the New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: Carpenter ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) looks like he is just out of the lineup for a night off and nothing more, so rest him for today. Pete Kozma ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is at third and batting eighth. He has little fantasy value, if any.

Cardinals | Matt Adams sitting out Tuesday

Tue, 19 May 2015 12:46:40 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 19, against the New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: Adams ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is off to a .246 start this spring and is 3-for-15 in his last five games. Mark Reynolds ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) gets the start and bats sixth. Reynolds has a .304 average (7-for-23) in the past week but has only two runs batted in, so don't go out of your way to put him in either.

Cardinals | John Lackey pitches seven innings

Mon, 18 May 2015 22:10:03 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP John Lackey allowed one run on three hits in seven innings against the New York Mets Monday, May 18. He struck out six batters and did not walk any batters during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Lackey ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has allowed only five earned runs in his four starts in May and has 22 strikeouts during that span. Lackey is scheduled to pitch against the Kansas City Royals in his next start and may be a risky option on FantasyScore.
