Cardinals | Carlos Martinez being skipped

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 10:12:46 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez will be skipped in the rotation against the Washington Nationals Tuesday, Sept. 1, in favor of SP Marco Gonzales, who will be making his season debut. Gonzales is the Cardinals' No. 4 ranked prospect, and he went 1-4 with a 4.42 ERA in 17 starts in the minors this year.

Fantasy Tip: This is likely just a spot start for Gonzales, so owning him anywhere outside of deep NL-only or keeper leagues isn't advised. It's also not advised to use him on FantasyScore against the Nats tonight.

Cardinals | Matt Adams suffers setback

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 06:39:37 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams (quadriceps) felt tightness in his left quadriceps running the bases over the weekend and returned to St. Louis for treatment and rehabilitation. Adams was rehabbing a torn right quadriceps when he felt the other leg tighten up.

Fantasy Tip: The setback could seal his fantasy value for this year. He was slated for a mid-Sept. return, but the setback surely puts a return before the final few days of the season in jeopardy.

Cardinals | Trevor Rosenthal activated

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 09:28:01 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals RP Trevor Rosenthal was activated from the paternity list Monday, Aug. 31.

Fantasy Tip: He should be rested and ready to close if a save chance presents itself against the Washington Nationals. Get him in your lineups.

Cardinals | Stephen Piscotty strong in SF series

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 01:07:57 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Stephen Piscotty finished the series with the San Francisco Giants with seven hits in 12 at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: This is a good development for Piscotty ($4,000, 8.0% of cap), who showed signs of struggle when he was promoted from Class AAA. He has really come on strong and looks like, barring injury or slump, he could be with St. Louis for a long time to come.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward hits strong in Sunday game

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 00:39:34 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward had three hits and an RBI for his team Sunday, Aug. 30, in a 7-5 win over the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has exploded after a weak month of April. He is over .300 for the third month in a row and has turned into a strong FantasyScore play. With all of the outfield injuries the Cardinals have incurred, Heyward needs to stay healthy.

Cardinals | Brandon Moss homers in win

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 00:34:50 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Brandon Moss homered for the second time in a St. Louis uniform Sunday, Aug. 30, as his team beat the San Francisco Giants 7-5.

Fantasy Tip: Moss ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is showing signs of warming up after a lackluster start at the plate in St. Louis. He's hitting .222 in August but .278 within the past week. As long as the bat is heating up and the FantasyScore price remains low, Moss may be a decent play. Of note: He has hits in his last four games.

Cardinals | Lance Lynn has mild ankle sprain

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 12:44:00 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Lance Lynn (ankle) is expected to make his next scheduled start after suffering a mild right ankle sprain in his start against the San Francisco Giants Saturday, Aug. 29. He had limited swelling around the ankle and was able to move around the clubhouse without much difficulty following the game, although the ankle was still tender.

Fantasy Tip: Lynn ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) is tentatively scheduled to make his next start against the Pittsburgh Pirates Friday, Sept. 4. He tossed seven scoreless innings before exiting Saturday, allowing just six hits and two walks while striking out two and picking up the victory. FantasyScore owners may want to avoid using him in his next outing just to be on the safe side.

Cardinals | Mark Reynolds returns to lineup

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 11:40:06 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B/OF Mark Reynolds will bat sixth and play first base against San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston Sunday, Aug. 30. 1B/OF Brandon Moss, who played first base Saturday, Aug. 29, will start in left field and bat seventh Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Reynolds ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is 7-for-20 at the plate over the last seven days, making him worthy of FantasyScore consideration if you want an inexpensive option at first base this afternoon. On the other hand, Moss ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is only batting .216 this month and should be avoided.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta not in lineup

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 11:30:13 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta is not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston Sunday, Aug. 30. INF Greg Garcia will play shortstop and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Peralta ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) from all fantasy lineups. Garcia ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is hitting just .133 in 15 at-bats this month and is not a great FantasyScore option.

Cardinals | Stephen Piscotty playing center field

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 11:20:06 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B/OF Stephen Piscotty will bat second and play center field against San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston Sunday, Aug. 30. OF Thomas Pham is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Piscotty ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is 12-for-24 with two home runs and 10 RBIs over the past week and should continue to be used in FantasyScore lineups as long as his hot hitting continues.

Cardinals | Lance Lynn leaves game

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 16:20:10 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Lance Lynn (ankle) left his start early Saturday, Aug. 29, because of a mild right ankle sprain.

Fantasy Tip: There is a chance Lynn ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) could be held out of his next start, so owners should look for an update on his status over the next few days. Lynn is a solid starting option against most opponents when healthy.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward returns to lineup

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:17:49 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward is back in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong Saturday, Aug. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is batting .304 over the past week and is 4-for-11 with a double and a home run in his career against Vogelsong, making him a solid FantasyScore option this afternoon.

Cardinals | Brandon Moss playing first base

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:04:51 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B/OF Brandon Moss is batting eighth and starting at first base against San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong Saturday, Aug. 29. 1B/OF Mark Reynolds is not in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Moss ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is batting just .208 this month and is hitless in four career at-bats versus Vogelsong. Better first base options are available in FantasyScore this afternoon.

Cardinals | Michael Wacha allows four unearned runs

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 06:04:15 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha allowed four unearned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out six batters during the Cardinals' 5-4 loss to the San Francisco Giants Friday, Aug. 28. Wacha did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Tip: Wacha's ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) ERA is down to 2.69 for the season, and he has a 1.40 ERA over his past seven starts with 40 strikeouts over 45 innings. It could be suggested that there is risk with Wacha's workload far exceeding his previous career high of 107 innings, but at this point, he appears absolutely fine. Continue to view him as a fringe No. 1 starter in all mixed leagues, and he is likely underpriced at FanasyScore.

Cardinals | Jon Jay could rehab Friday

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 09:34:31 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jon Jay (wrist) could begin a rehab assignment Friday, Aug. 28, at Class AAA Memphis.

Fantasy Tip: Jay ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) would likely see the bulk of the playing time in center upon returning. Keep an eye on him for NL-only usage and for a low-end FantasyScore flyer.
