Cardinals | Brandon Moss starting Monday

Mon, 23 May 2016 12:54:26 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Brandon Moss is starting at first base and is hitting fifth against Chicago Cubs SP John Lackey Monday, May 23. 1B Matt Adams will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Moss is hitting just .218 but has eight home runs and 22 RBI on the season. He has good numbers against Lackey in his career, hitting at a clip of .364 with two RBI in 12 plate appearances. Moss certainly profiles as a fine value pick in daily setups today.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday out of the lineup

Sun, 22 May 2016 11:06:19 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke Sunday, May 22. OF Brandon Moss will start in left field and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Moss has only one hit in his last seven games, so owners should be able to find better options to use in their starting lineups.

Cardinals | No Brandon Moss, Matt Adams

Fri, 20 May 2016 14:45:19 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1Bs Brandon Moss and Matt Adams are not in the starting lineup Friday, May 20. 3B Matt Carpenter is starting at first base, and SS Ruben Tejada is starting at third base and batting eighth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Moss and Adams have been splitting time at first base, but the left-handed hitters will receive the night off against the southpaw, so sub them out where you can in seasonal leagues. Adams has swung the better bat of late with a .314/.368/.429 slash line and 11 RBI through 38 plate appearances in May. Tejada is nothing more than a desperation flier in all fantasy formats Friday.

Cardinals | Brandon Moss playing 1B

Wed, 18 May 2016 14:41:19 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Brandon Moss is starting at first base and is hitting sixth against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Chris Rusin Wednesday, May 18. 1B Matt Adams will start on the bench against the lefty.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately for Moss he's back in the lineup against a lefty, and he's hitting just .192 with two RBI against southpaws this year in 26 at-bats. Rusin isn't the most feared lefty, but Moss' daily upside is low with the lefty-on-lefty matchup.

Cardinals | Matt Adams in cleanup spot

Tue, 17 May 2016 13:48:29 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams is starting at first base and hitting cleanup against Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis Tuesday, May 17. 1B Brandon Moss starts on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Adams has garnered more playing time at first than Moss of late, and Adams is hitting .310 (9-for-29) with a homer and six RBI so far in May. The burly left-handed slugger has plenty of power and has a decent matchup to take advantage of in daily games. He's batting .295 with all three of his long balls against righties in 2016.

Cardinals | Brandon Moss not in Sunday lineup

Sun, 15 May 2016 14:29:19 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Brandon Moss is not in the lineup Sunday, May 15, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. OF Matt Holliday is at first base for the game and will bat third against Dodgers SP Alex Wood.

Fantasy Tip: Moss is on the bench because of the lefty vs. lefty matchup, so don't be surprised if he pinch-hits once Wood is out of the game. Holliday is hitting very well, with a .300 batting average, three homers and five runs batted in over the past week. Needless to say, he should be in any fantasy format.

Cardinals | Matt Adams, Kolten Wong sit

Sat, 14 May 2016 16:12:37 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams and 2B Kolten Wong are out of the lineup Saturday, May 14, against left-handed Los Angeles Dodgers SP Scott Kazmir. 1B Brandon Moss is hitting cleanup, and 2B Jedd Gyorko is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Moss is hitting slightly better against lefties this season, which may seem strange as a left-handed hitter. He's an all-or-nothing lower-middle option with plenty of major and not a lot of contact. Gyorko has yet to hit his stride and is just 3-for-20 (.150) this month. The numbers don't get much better against lefties, either. Pass on him today.

Cardinals | Matt Adams hitting cleanup again

Fri, 13 May 2016 16:49:09 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams is hitting cleanup for the second straight day against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Ross Stripling Friday, May 13. 1B Brandon Moss will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: The Cards are riding the hot hand with Adams right now. Adams recorded three hits and drove in three runs Thursday night and is hitting .360 with a home run and five RBI in May. Ride the hot hand in daily leagues tonight against Stripling.

Cardinals | Matt Adams, Jeremy Hazelbaker in

Thu, 12 May 2016 15:43:17 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams and OF Jeremy Hazelbaker are in the starting lineup Thursday, May 12, with Adams batting cleanup and Hazelbaker hitting sixth opposite Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver. OF/1B Brandon Moss will be on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: The Cards have been mixing and matching the three, with Matt Holliday shifting to designated hitter for this rare series in an American League park. Adams looks like he'll have the most value as it concerns this evening, as he could get multiple run-producing opportunities against the soft-tossing Weaver. Hazelbaker has cooled off after his hot April, owning a .133 average in May thus far, but could get it going versus the veteran right-hander as well.

Cardinals | Brandon Moss hitting cleanup

Wed, 11 May 2016 15:54:09 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Brandon Moss is starting in left field and is batting cleanup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Wednesday, May 11. OF Matt Holliday is in the designated hitter role again in an American League park.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker was just recalled out of necessity from the minors to make the start, so this is a nice matchup to roll Moss out there in. Shoemaker allowed six homers in his five previous starts this year, too. Moss surely has power, too, with seven bombs on the year in 90 at-bats. He's a good play in daily formats.
