Cardinals | Kolten Wong sent down

Sun, 27 Apr 2014 20:58:53 -0700

The St. Louis Cardinals have optioned 2B Kolten Wong to Triple-A Memphis.

Cardinals | Platoon at SS?

Mon, 19 Aug 2013 09:31:18 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Daniel Descalso started at shortstop over SS Pete Kozma Sunday, Aug. 18, against a right-handed pitcher, but manager Mike Matheny said there isn't a platoon situation at the position for the rest of the season. "I am still comfortable with (Kozma's defense), but I think we've all been becoming more comfortable with the innings (Descalso) has been playing as well, and how he's swinging the bat at times. I think you're going to see both of them," Matheny said. Kozma was hitting .223 and Descalso was batting .254 entering the game.

Fantasy Tip: Kozma should still be considered the starting shortstop, but it appears that Descalso could cut into his playing time down the stretch if he continues to swing it better.

Cardinals | Daniel Descalso playing SS

Fri, 05 Jul 2013 13:20:32 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Daniel Descalso is starting for the second straight day at shortstop with SS Pete Kozma being benched so that he can work on his swing. Descalso has hit .355 in his last 30 games and had three hits Thursday, July 4. However, manager Mike Matheny was careful to say that there isn't a platoon situation in the works at shortstop. SS Ryan Jackson is batting .306 with a .384 on-base percentage at Triple-A Memphis, but he isn't an option for the team's bench at this moment.

Fantasy Tip: The Cards haven't given up on Kozma just yet, so you should look to retain him in cavernous mixed leagues. Descalso deserves some short-term attention in NL-only leagues.

Cardinals | Matt Carpenter sticking at 2B

Mon, 11 Mar 2013 13:59:12 -0700

The St. Louis Cardinals are happy with the transition that 2B Matt Carpenter has made with the move to second base, and he's in consideration for the starting job there. Carpenter hasn't committed an error in 44 innings this spring, and his footwork has become more natural. "I'm at the point now where if I were to be out there in a game I don't feel lost whatsoever," Carpenter said. "Am I going to win a Gold Glove over there? The odds of that are probably slim. But at the same time, do I feel like I can play an adequate second base? I do. I really do now. I'm comfortable at that position." Carpenter is battling with 2B Daniel Descalso, and the team expects the competition to spill into the regular season.

Cardinals | Matt Carpenter emulating fellow 2B

Wed, 13 Feb 2013 13:29:06 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Matt Carpenter, who is working with infielders coach Jose Oquendo to transition to second base, was told to watch New York Yankees 2B Robinson Cano and Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips to become a better infielder. "I kind of feel like a kid all over again, because you watch these other big leaguers and you try to be just like them," Carpenter said. "We're watching the unique techniques. Everybody does something different. We practice it all and try to figure out what I'm going to be the best at, and where I'm going to be most comfortable." The Cardinals have been impressed with Carpenter's work over the winter, but 2B Daniel Descalso will enter as the incumbent at the position.
