St. Louis Cardinals OF Jeremy Hazelbaker was promoted from Class AAA Memphis on Tuesday, July 19. In other roster moves, RP Miguel Socolovich was also promoted to the parent club, and C Michael McKenry was designated for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: Of these three, the one with the most value is Hazelbaker, and his fantasy value has gone way down from what it was at the start of the year. Hazelbaker hit .250-7-19 before being sent to Memphis, and it is not clear how much playing time the Cards will give him with Kolten Wong, Stephen Piscotty, Matt Holliday and others already ticketed for outfield duty.

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (quadriceps) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, June 9. RP Miguel Socolovich was recalled from Class AAA Memphis in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Holliday's injury looked pretty serious last night, and he had to be helped off the field. We could see this being an ailment that keeps him out well beyond the 15 days, but stay tuned for a more clear prognosis of his injury. Plan for the worst if you own him. Jon Jay ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) and Peter Bourjos ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) figure to platoon in the outfield with Holliday out. They are very similar players, with Bourjos probably having more value as a speed threat. Don't count out a promotion of Stephen Piscotty from the minors. Hint, hint dynasty and keeper leaguers.

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jon Jay (wrist) is expected off the 15-day disabled list on Friday, May 29. RP Miguel Socolovich was optioned to Triple-A Memphis to create a roster spot.
Fantasy Tip: Jay ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) will likely see more playing time with players like Matt Adams on the shelf for an extended period. He is worth activating in matchup situations.

New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard was sent to minor league camp Tuesday, March 18. He'll start at Triple-A Las Vegas for some more seasoning. The team also re-assigned Ps Rafael Montero, Joel Carreno, Ryan Reid, Cory Mazzoni and Miguel Socolovich, 1Bs Brandon Allen and Matt Clark and C Juan Centeno.
Fantasy Tip: As DiComo notes, Syndergaard, the club's top pitching prospect, is expected to follow a similar path to the bigs that Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler had, which would put his arrival in New York around sometime in June. That would keep Syndergaard from achieving Super 2 arbitration status. He should be firmly on the radar of those in NL-only and keeper leagues.
