Cardinals | Michael Wacha going to curve more often

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 15:12:47 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha is using his curveball around 12 percent of the time this year compared to just five percent last season. Wacha is also using his cut fastball more often. He gets plenty of vertical break on his curve, which gives him another potential out pitch. Fourteen of his 93 pitches during his outing Wednesday, April 23, were curves. Wacha's curve has induced a ground-ball rate of 60 percent this year so far.

Fantasy Tip: The risk with putting too much faith in Wacha is that he doesn't have a track record in the majors besides last season. It's encouraging that his repertoire is more diverse, however. Continue to ride him but be wary of some regression.

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 10:43:08 -0700

Fantasy Tip: You'll want to leave Waino in your starting lineup for his next start.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha pitched just four innings in his loss to the New York Mets Wednesday, April 23. It was the shortest he has pitched in his career. Wacha struck out 10, but walked five batters and allowed two runs.

Fantasy Tip: Wacha looked downright filthy early, striking out nine through the first three innings. However, his pitch count rose quickly, and he tired.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright works out

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 15:40:55 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright (knee) worked out as he normally would Wednesday, April 23, and even did one-legged squats. "I'd be lying if I said there was a little tenderness with complete extension," Wainwright said. "I'm already significantly better than I was last night." He expects to make his next start Sunday, April 27.

Fantasy Tip: All signs point to Waino being fine for his next start. Plan to keep him in your starting lineups this weekend.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright expects to make next start

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 12:08:11 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright (knee) insists that he'll be good to go for his next start against the Pittsburgh Pirates Sunday, April 27, after hyperextending his knee Tuesday, April 22. "My ACL, MCL, UCL, all those LCLs, QCLs, all the CLs are good," Wainwright said, listing actual and fictional ligaments that could have been damaged in the twist. "It's one of those (plays) that looks scarier than it actually was. … I expected it to be more painful than it actually was."

Fantasy Tip: The Cards could choose to push Wainwright back, but if he doesn't have a setback, he shouldn't need to miss a start.

Fantasy Tip: Wainwright dodged a bullet last night. From all indications, he should be good to go for his next start.

Cardinals | Tyler Lyons to stay in rotation

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 16:39:41 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Tyler Lyons will remain in the starting rotation after giving up two runs in six innings against the New York Mets Monday, April 21. His next start will come against the Pittsburgh Pirates Saturday, April 26.

Fantasy Tip: The case is there to own Lyons in an NL-only league, but keep in mind that his stay in the rotation is expected to be short-lived. Joe Kelly should return to his rotation post when he's ready.

Cardinals | Straight platoon at 2B?

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 15:49:19 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong has been struggling of late, and 2B Mark Ellis has capitalized with more playing time; he made his third start in four games Monday, April 21. Manager Mike Matheny said Ellis' start against a righty Monday was "a great example" of how the team intends to use him - as a right-handed complement to Wong. Wong's average is down from .280 to .237, and he has four strikeouts in eight games. He said he's been "out of synch and rushing" lately.

Fantasy Tip: Matheny is choosing to ride the sure thing in Ellis over a struggling Wong. Wong owners in mixed leagues need to take note. Until Wong can regain the confidence in his swing and of his skipper, he's primarily an NL-only commodity.

Cardinals | Jon Jay to see more time

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 15:41:41 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jon Jay has taken over the platoon situation in center field over OF Peter Bourjos, and manager Mike Matheny plans on riding Jay's hot stick. "We're getting the guys in there who are taking good at-bats. Jon Jay has been taking some good at-bats," Matheny said. "Allen Craig has turned the corner and right now looks good in that second hole. Peter Bourjos is going to get good opportunities against a left-hander tomorrow. But right now Jon is taking the kind of at-bats we've got to capitalize on. We've got to get something going. Any guy in that lineup has potential to get us going." Jay is batting sixth Tuesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: If you own Bourjos in a mixed league, now is the time to start looking elsewhere, as long as Jay remains hot and in the good graces of the skipper.
