Cardinals | Matt Holliday could return next week

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 14:06:31 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (quadriceps) will accompany the team on its road trip next week, and he could return before the first half ends July 12.

Fantasy Tip: Holly ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) will be a nice option at that price on FantasyScore upon his return.

Cardinals | Tommy Pham in lineup Saturday

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 10:32:00 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Tommy Pham is leading off and playing center field against San Diego Padres SP Odrisamer Despaigne Saturday, July 4.

Fantasy Tip: Pham ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitless in five career at-bats. He should be avoided in FantasyScore until he proves he can hit at the major league level.

Cardinals | Mark Reynolds back in lineup

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 10:30:29 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Mark Reynolds is in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Odrisamer Despaigne Saturday, July 4, batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Reynolds ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is just 5-for-38 (.132) over his last 10 games and should be avoided in FantasyScore this afternoon.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward stays hot

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 21:19:44 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward has opened the month of July with back-to-back multi-hit games.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) hit .326 as part of an excellent month of June, and he has picked up right where he left off. Keep plugging him into your lineup at FantasyScore and enjoy the ride.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia on track for Tuesday

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 21:16:09 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (groin) is on track to start against the Chicago Cubs Tuesday, July 7.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) has had a few minor setbacks, and although there is some risk with starting any pitcher coming off an injury, taking a chance on Garcia and his 1.69 ERA could pay off.

Cardinals | Jon Jay placed on the disabled list

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 13:09:51 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jon Jay (wrist) was placed on the disabled list Thursday, July 2, with a stress fracture and bone bruise on his left wrist.

Fantasy Tip: Peter Bourjos ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) projects to grab the majority of starts with Jay and Matt Holliday both out. In the short term, Bourjos has fleeting value in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, and those in need of speed, could take a speculative flier on him in deep mixed leagues, too.

Cardinals | Mark Reynolds dropped to seventh

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 12:02:30 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Mark Reynolds was dropped to seventh in the batting order against San Diego Padres SP Tyson Ross Thursday, July 2. OF Jason Heyward is hitting cleanup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Reynolds ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has only 20 hits in 91 at-bats (.220) with 31 strikeouts, two home runs and 13 RBI since June 1. Ross has only allowed three home runs in 95 2/3 innings, too, and he's fanning 9.9 hitters per nine innings in 2015. It's a bad matchup for Reynolds on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Tim Cooney to make start

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 09:48:48 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Tim Cooney will be brought up from Class AAA Memphis to start against the San Diego Padres Thursday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: Cooney was not good in his first start and may only be up for one appearance. Avoid him on FantasyScore for now.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia to throw side session

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 17:16:32 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (groin) is expected to throw a side session in the next two or three days. He had been scheduled to start against the San Diego Padres Thursday, July 2, but has been ruled out due to a strained left groin.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia's ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) injury affects him when he pushes off during his delivery. If all goes well during the side session, he could make a start against the Chicago Cubs next week. However, FantasyScore owners should avoid using him until he demonstrates that he is completely healthy. SP Tim Cooney is expected to be promoted from the minors to start Thursday, July 2, but is not a great FantasyScore option.

Cardinals | Tim Cooney expected to start Thursday

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 15:10:42 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Tim Cooney is expected to come up from the minors to start against the San Diego Padres Thursday, July 2. The Cardinals haven't announced their starter yet, though.

Fantasy Tip: This will just be a spot start for Cooney to replace Jaime Garcia (groin), who will be pushed back to sometime early next week. Don't invest anything in Cooney in traditional leagues. At FantasyScore, he'll be very cheap and is intriguing against a Padres squad that is really struggling offensively of late. However, he's still pretty risky and profiles as a deep sleeper for the gambling type.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia unlikely against Padres

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:13:25 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (groin) is unlikely to start in the series against the San Diego Padres, but the Cardinals are hopeful that he'll avoid landing on the disabled list. The team expects him to start next week against the Chicago Cubs.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) has been great this season in seven starts, sporting a 1.69 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 32 strikeouts in 48 innings. His injury isn't believed to be serious, but a matchup against the Cubs leaves plenty of risk for Garcia after missing a start.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday to begin running

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 08:38:31 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (quadriceps) continues to take batting practice, and he'll begin light running this week.

Fantasy Tip: Holly is still a couple of weeks away from a possible return. Keep him stashed on your DL.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia uncertain for Thursday

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 22:21:41 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (groin) has not thrown a bullpen session since a cramp in his groin last Wednesday, June 24. He is a question mark for his start Thursday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: Avoid Garcia ($7,100; or 14.2% of cap) in FantasyScore until he can officially make a start and pitch without any setbacks or lingering effects of his injury.

Cardinals | John Lackey unbeatable in the Lou

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 21:15:10 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP John Lackey is the probable starter for Wednesday, July 1, against the Chicago White Sox. He is 7-1 with a 2.08 ERA in 13 career starts in St. Louis, and he is 5-1 with a 1.91 ERA at home this season.

Fantasy Tip: Lackey ($6,300; or 12.6% of cap) is a solid play in FantasyScore, especially considering he is up against Jose Quintana, who is 2-6 over his past 12 starts, mainly due to a lack of run support.

Cardinals | Randal Grichuk in two-hole Tuesday

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 15:24:27 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk is hitting second against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Grichuk ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has been a modestly priced FantasyScore option that is able to hit for plenty of power as a value play. However, he doesn't stand out as a great play tonight against a tough left-hander. Grichuk is hitting .250 (10-for-40) and has none of his six home runs this year against lefties.
