Cardinals | Trevor Rosenthal loses again

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 23:22:06 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals RP Trevor Rosenthal allowed a game-winning three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth against the Seattle Mariners on Friday, June 24. He failed to record an out.

Fantasy Tip: Oh, boy. More trouble for Rosenthal, who's now 0-2 with a 14.14 ERA and a 3.00 WHIP in June. Perhaps even worse, Friday marked the third time in 11 appearances this month that Rosenthal couldn't get a single out. It's hard to imagine Mike Matheny can keep deploying him in the ninth, which makes Seung Hwan Oh a compelling speculative addition.

Cardinals | Carlos Martinez shuts down M's

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 23:12:39 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez allowed one run on four hits in seven innings against the Seattle Mariners on Friday, June 25. He was not involved in the decision.

Fantasy Tip: Were it not for some shaky bullpen work *cough* Trevor Rosenthal *cough* Martinez would be 5-0 over his last five starts. As it is, he's 3-0 with a 1.24 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 28 K's in 36 1/3 innings during that time. Martinez seems to have put his May struggles behind him and is back to being a must start in all formats.

Cardinals | Matt Adams bothered by back tightness

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 19:50:56 -0700

Updating a previous report, St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams (back) was scratched from the starting lineup versus the Seattle Mariners Friday, June 24, because of lower back tightness.

Fantasy Tip: Adams should be considered day-to-day. The 27-year-old is batting .298 with nine home runs and 33 RBI through 161 at-bats this year.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong out of the lineup

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 17:01:15 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Wade LeBlanc Friday, June 24. OF Tommy Pham will start in center field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Pham has gone 1-for-5 since being recalled from the minor leagues and is not a strong option at this point.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday will be DH

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 16:51:48 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday will serve as the designated hitter against Seattle Mariners SP Wade LeBlanc Friday, June 24. 1B Brandon Moss will start in left field, while 1B Matt Adams will start at first base and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Adams has only one hit over the last six games but should still have some value in deeper mixed leagues. Holliday and Moss should be starter in most fantasy leagues.

Cardinals | Aledmys Diaz productive at plate

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 16:53:59 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Aledmys Diaz went 3-for-4 with one home run and two RBI against the Chicago Cubs Wednesday, June 22.

Fantasy Tip: Diaz has seven hits, one home run and three RBI over the last four games and appears to be breaking out of his cold streak. He is still hitting .310 this season and is a solid starting option in most leagues.

Cardinals | Michael Wacha picks up a victory

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 16:43:41 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha allowed two runs on three hits in 6 2/3 innings against the Chicago Cubs Wednesday, June 22, to pick up his third win of the season. He struck out five batters and walked two during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Wacha has been pitching better this month and has allowed five runs in his last three starts. He is scheduled to face the Kansas City Royals in his next start and should be a starting option for owners in daily fantasy leagues.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday takes a seat

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 08:33:22 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday is out of the lineup Wednesday, June 22, with 1B Matt Adams hitting third.

Fantasy Tip: Adams is 6-for-18 (.333) with four RBI in his career against Jake Arrieta. It's a tough matchup, but he has upside in the three-hole.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday connects on 13th home run

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 20:42:45 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday homered for the fourth time in his last nine games on Tuesday, June 21, blasting a two-run home run off Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel.

Fantasy Tip: Although Holliday isn't carrying the same average he used to, he has 13 homers - more than triple his home run output from his injury-plagued the 2015 campaign (four). The 36-year-old has knocked in 40 runs as well, making his .253 average a bit more palatable. Holliday does his best work against right-handers (.268, eight home runs and 24 RBI entering Tuesday's action), so he is worth using in daily leagues when that is the case.

Cardinals | Matt Adams not starting

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 15:39:45 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams is not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel Tuesday, June 21. 1B Brandon Moss will start at first base and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Moss is hitting .357 with seven home runs and 11 RBI this month and has at least one hit in eight of his last 10 games. Moss should be an attractive starting candidate in all leagues because of his recent success at the plate.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia posts fifth victory

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 23:07:37 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia won for the first time in four starts Monday, June 20, allowing two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out six over 6 2/3 innings against the Chicago Cubs.

Fantasy Tip: Monday marked the fourth time in five turns Garcia has yielded three earned runs or fewer, so his recent inability to win games has been as much about as the Cardinals' shaky bullpen and defense as anything. The 29-year-old southpaw is still a very capable back-end starting pitcher in fantasy, and he is a solid option for owners Friday on the road against the Seattle Mariners.

Cardinals | Trevor Rosenthal holds on for 13th save

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 22:37:56 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals RP Trevor Rosenthal made things interesting yet again on Monday, June 20 - giving up a leadoff double to Chicago Cubs OF Albert Almora Jr., hitting pinch-hitter Chris Coghlan with a pitch and allowing a single to 2B Ben Zobrist - but forced a game-ending infield popup for the final out after C Yadier Molina made a stellar defensive play to retire Almora at third for the second out.

Fantasy Tip: Manager Mike Matheny continues to stand by his man, but Rosenthal isn't making it easy. The 26-year-old closer has only three clean outings this month and, as a result, a 12.00 ERA and 2.67 WHIP in nine June appearances. He also has a HBP each of his last two games as well. A closer change doesn't appear imminent yet based on Matheny's postgame comments, but owners could make a play for Kevin Siegrist if they have room on their roster to do so.

Cardinals | Trevor Rosenthal still the closer

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 06:50:47 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals RP Trevor Rosenthal would have pitched Sunday, June 20, if a save situation arose, according to manager Mike Matheny.

Fantasy Tip: Rosenthal has been really bad this year. He has a robust 1.91 WHIP thanks to 19 walks in 22 innings, but the main point of concern is he has allowed 23 hits. Teams are keying on his fastball because his secondary stuff is just not good. He used to have a pretty good changeup, but he hasn't been able to throw it consistently. He falls behind hitters and gets into trouble quite often. All that being said, if he can reel things in, he can still be one of the best five relievers in fantasy by the end of the year. If he doesn't do it soon, Seung Hwan Oh and his 1.77 ERA and 12.36 K/9 are waiting in the wings. Lefty Kevin Siegrist could vulture a few saves based on matchups as well. Both are worth owning, but Oh has the upper hand in mixed formats.

Cardinals | Tommy Pham starting in CF

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 10:41:12 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Tommy Pham will start in center field against Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez Sunday, June 19, and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Pham has a chance to see regular playing time in center field if he plays well, but owners should avoid him for the time being.

Cardinals | Matt Adams, Yadier Molina out

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 10:29:52 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams and C Yadier Molina are not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez Sunday, June 19. OF Brandon Moss will start at first base and is batting sixth, while C Eric Fryer will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Moss has at least one hit in seven of his last eight games and has five multi-hit games during that span. He should be a solid starting candidate in most fantasy leagues. Fryer is hitting .414 in limited playing time this season, but owners may be able to find better options to use.
