Cardinals | Jason Heyward has groin tightness

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 13:43:49 -0700

Updating a previous post, St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward (groin) experienced tightness in his left groin and had to leave the game Sunday, April 26.

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.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward injures ankle

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 12:38:39 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward (ankle) left the game Sunday, April 26, after suffering an apparent left ankle injury while chasing down a triple hit by Milwaukee Brewers OF Gerardo Parra.

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.

Cardinals | GM not optimistic about Adam Wainwright

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 11:55:23 -0700

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.

Cardinals | Peter Bourjos playing Sunday

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 09:10:04 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Peter Bourjos will be the starting center fielder against the Milwaukee Brewers Sunday, April 26.

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.

Cardinals | Mark Reynolds starting in LF

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 09:03:27 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Mark Reynolds will be the starting left fielder against the Milwaukee Brewers Sunday, April 26.

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.

Cardinals | Jon Jay not in lineup

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 08:59:44 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jon Jay is not in the starting lineup Sunday, April 26.

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.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday on the bench

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 08:54:34 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday is not in the starting lineup Sunday, April 26.

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.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina not ready to return

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 08:48:00 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina (knee) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, April 26. C Tony Cruz will be the starting catcher for the Cardinals.

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.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright placed on DL

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 08:10:09 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright (ankle, Achilles') was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, April 26, because of a low ankle and Achilles' tendon injury.

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.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright out for the season?

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 06:34:18 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright (Achilles') is expected to be finished for the season due to an Achilles' injury, according to sources. Wainwright has yet to undergo an MRI, though.

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.

Cardinals | Adam Wainwright injures ankle

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 18:14:51 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright (ankle) exited his start against the Milwaukee Brewers with a left ankle injury Saturday, April 25, and will be re-evaluated when the team returns to St. Louis.

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.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina not starting Saturday

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 12:35:35 -0700

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.

Cardinals | Peter Bourjos back Friday

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 19:12:26 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Peter Bourjos will return from the paternity list Friday, April 24, against the Milwaukee Brewers.

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.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina dialed in

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 19:06:39 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina has 12 hits and six RBIs over his last seven games, raising his average from .143 and .306 over the stretch.

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.

Cardinals | Michael Wacha beating up on aces

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 18:42:37 -0700

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.
