Cardinals | Carlos Martinez to stay in bullpen

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 15:56:32 -0700

The St. Louis Cardinals aren't sure if SP Joe Kelly (hamstring) will need more than two weeks to recover from a slight tear of his hamstring, which means they'll leave RP Carlos Martinez in a relief role for now. Manager Mike Matheny said the team will go with a "minor league guy" for the start against the New York Mets Monday, April 21. SP Tyler Lyons is the main candidate for that start.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly's hammy strain doesn't seem to be too serious. Grab Lyons in an NL-only league if you need some short-term pitching help.

Cardinals | Carlos Martinez candidate for rotation

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 15:13:12 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said RP Carlos Martinez is a candidate to enter the rotation if SP Joe Kelly's (hamstring) stay on the disabled list is prolonged. Martinez would need some time to be stretched out for the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Tyler Lyons is likely to be called up to fill in in the short term, but Martinez has much more upside if he's starting. Stay tuned to the prognosis for Kelly, since that'll determine what the team does with Martinez.

Cardinals | Joe Kelly to DL

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 09:57:05 -0700

The St. Louis Cardinals placed SP Joe Kelly (hamstring) on the disabled list Thursday, April 17. The club is recalling RPs Eric Fornataro and Jorge Rondon from Triple-A Memphis and optioning RP Keith Butler in corresponding moves.

Fantasy Tip: Tyler Lyons is believed to be the replacement in the rotation for Kelly. Lyons won't miss a lot of bats, but he'll have at least two weeks to give you valuable innings in NL-only universes.

Cardinals | Joe Kelly to be re-evaluated

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 13:58:22 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Joe Kelly (hamstring) will be re-evaluated in St. Louis Thursday, April 17. If he's unable to make his next start Monday, April 21, SP Tyler Lyons is expected to fill in.

Fantasy Tip: There's a decent chance that Kelly lands on the DL, depending on the severity of the hammy strain. Lyons isn't attractive unless Kelly is out for at least two weeks or more.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia, Jason Motte making progress

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 12:06:29 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (shoulder) and RP Jason Motte (elbow) are making progress with their throwing programs. Garcia is facing live batters in batting practice this week and is scheduled to pitch in an extended spring game later this week. Motte is further along after throwing roughly 20 pitches in a spring game Monday, April 14, and he will make two more appearances this week. The team hasn't set a date for Motte to begin a rehab assignment.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta breaking out of it

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 06:26:18 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta has gone 2-for-4 in each of the past three games and has homered in two of them.

Fantasy Tip: His early season struggles seem to be coming to an end. A lot of it was due to poor luck as he has hit the ball hard in a lot of at-bats. If you can buy low, now is the time.

Cardinals | Kolten Wong sitting

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 13:24:55 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong isn't in the lineup Tuesday, April 15. 2B Mark Ellis is starting in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Odd, because they're facing right-hander Marco Estrada, but the youngster will get days off like this now and then. No worries for the long term.

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 09:05:31 -0700

Cardinals | Oscar Taveras heating up

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 07:52:43 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Oscar Taveras is hitting .300 at Triple-A Memphis and has seven hits in his last 14 at-bats. He's also hitting .400 with a home run against left-handed pitchers.

Fantasy Tip: There's still a chance he could hit his way into the majors in June. However, that is an optimistic viewpoint after he missed the second half of last season due to an ankle injury and the team's depth.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina sits

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 06:13:59 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina had his first day off Monday, April 14.

Fantasy Tip: Molina is hitting .340 and has driven in some clutch runs early on. However, the team has to be careful not to overuse him early in the season. With the first couple of weeks over, expect him to sit a day or two per week with the limited off days moving forward.

Cardinals | Lance Lynn continues Jekyll and Hyde showing

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 06:07:12 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Lance Lynn was great in his win over the Milwaukee Brewers Monday, April 14. He allowed three hits and three walks while fanning 11 in seven shutout innings. He reduced his ERA to 4.00 and improved to 3-0 on the season.

Fantasy Tip: Lynn has been feast or famine for the better part of his starting career. Monday's performance showed you the bright side of things, as he took a Milwaukee team on a nine-game winning streak and shut them down. Lynn has a tendency to have big first halves, so continue riding his wave.
