St. Louis Cardinals news, rumors and injuries
Mon, 27 Apr 2015 16:51:45 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Reynolds ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) went 1-for-5 with a home run in his last start but is only hitting .200 for the season. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use.
Mon, 27 Apr 2015 16:45:46 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Heyward ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is dealing with a groin injury but it is not known how long he will be out. Mark Reynolds ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is taking his place in the starting lineup but may not be a great option for owners on FantasyScore.
Mon, 27 Apr 2015 16:45:08 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Molina ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) will return to the lineup after missing two games because of a knee injury. Molina is a risky option on FantasyScore because of the injury, but owners can consider using him.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright's (Achilles') tests confirmed a torn Achilles' in his left foot, and he'll be out for the rest of the season, according to general manager John Mozeliak. Wainwright will have surgery this week.
Fantasy Tip: Wainwright ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) may need nine to 12 months of recovery time, meaning he might not be ready for the start of the 2016 season. Keep tabs on his progress throughout the year. You can now safely drop him in all yearly leagues. Tyler Lyons is the most likely rotation replacement, with Marco Gonzales and Jaime Garcia both injured right now. Lyons will be a low-priced FantasyScore starter option, and he could be a sneaky commodity in the right matchups.

Fantasy Tip: Cooney has a 3.63 ERA at Triple-A, but he's not on the 40-man roster. Tyler Lyons and Marco Gonzales (pectoral) are probably ahead of him in the pecking order once Gonzales returns. Cooney would be an NL-only option and a very deep flyer on FantasyScore.
Mon, 27 Apr 2015 07:08:34 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gonzales is the most likely to fill Adam Wainwright's (Achilles') rotation spot long term once he returns to action. Because he's so young, he'll likely have an innings cap, but he should be owned in deeper formats and watched closely in traditional leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Tim Cooney is also an option, but Lyons is already on the 40-man roster and has experience. He has struggled with a 4.61 ERA at Triple-A Memphis, but his batting average of balls in play is .500. That indicates he has had a lot of bad luck. The team really wants a left-hander in the rotation, and Marco Gonzales (pectoral) and Jaime Garcia (shoulder) are banged up. Lyons would be a matchup play at a low price on FantasyScore if he comes up.

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.
Sun, 26 Apr 2015 12:38:39 -0700
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.
Sun, 26 Apr 2015 09:10:04 -0700
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.
