Mariners | Seattle wants athletic OF

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 10:13:33 -0800

The Seattle Mariners may be inclined to trade for the likes of New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner, St. Louis Cardinals OFs Jon Jay or Peter Bourjos, Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin or Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr. rather than sign impending free-agent OFs Dexter Fowler (Cubs), Austin Jackson (Cubs) or Denard Span (Nationals).

Fantasy Tip: Gardner is likely Seattle's top trade target and is the biggest fantasy name of the bunch. A move to pitcher-friendly Safeco Field would turn many off to Gardner, but that could make him a better value pick in 2016 fantasy drafts for his speed.

Cardinals | Stephen Piscotty injured in collision

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 21:11:17 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Stephen Piscotty (head) suffered a head contusion in a violent collision with OF Peter Bourjos in the game Monday, Sept. 28, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He was transported to a local Pittsburgh hospital for further evaluation.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain when Piscotty ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) will be well enough to play again. Hopefully it will be sooner rather than later for the rookie, who waved to the crowd while being carted off.

Cardinals | Randal Grichuk sitting vs. Reds

Thu, 10 Sep 2015 14:37:07 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk (elbow) is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Sept. 10, because it is a scheduled "off day" from throwing, according to his rehab schedule. OF Peter Bourjos is starting in center field and batting eighth against Cincinnati Reds SP John Lamb Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Grichuk's ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) throwing was visibly limited Wednesday, Sept. 9, which makes him an extreme defensive liability in the outfield for St. Louis. Don't be surprised if he receives plenty of rest down the stretch with the Cardinals all but locked into a playoff berth. It is a tough spot for seasonal owners, but unless you have the flexibility to pick your spots with the outfielder, you might be able to find better and more consistent production elsewhere. Bourjos ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation flier for FantasyScore contests Thursday.

Cardinals | Mark Reynolds remains out

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 14:32:50 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Mark Reynolds (wrist) is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 4. OF Peter Bourjos draws into the lineup and is batting eighth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP J.A. Happ Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Reynolds ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is missing his second consecutive game with the injury, so you'll want to check back for updates before returning him to your lineups. He is having a respectable second half as a part-time player with a .274/.364/.453 slash line. Bourjos ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) owns a .644 OPS over the past two seasons, and he can't be started with confidence at FantasyScore Friday.

Cardinals | Peter Bourjos starting in center field

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 13:37:42 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Peter Bourjos is starting in center field and batting eighth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Thursday, Aug. 13. OF Brandon Moss and 1B Mark Reynolds are not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid both Reynolds ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) and Moss ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) at FantasyScore Thursday, but Bourjos ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) isn't a strong start, either. It is Bourjos' first start since Tuesday, July 28, and he owns an uninspiring .222/.321/.341 slash line for the season.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward not in the lineup

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 17:02:18 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward is not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake Tuesday, July 28. OF Peter Bourjos is starting in center field and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the next game or two. Bourjos ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting only .175 this month and is not a strong option on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | No Randal Grichuk Monday

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:54:51 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk (groin) is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 27. OF Peter Bourjos is starting in center field and hitting eighth against Cincinnati Reds SP Raisel Iglesias.

Fantasy Tip: Bourjos ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has been playing very sparingly lately as a bench option, and he's hitting only .184 (7-for-38) with no home runs and three RBI in July. Bourjos is valuable for his speed, but he hasn't been getting on base enough to make him a viable fantasy option.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward to sit out

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 10:55:24 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Jon Niese Sunday, July 19. OF Randal Grichuk will start in right field and is batting second, while OF Peter Bourjos will start in center field and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) usually sits out when the team faces a left-handed pitcher, so he should return to the lineup soon. Bourjos ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is hitting only .188 this month and is not a great starting option on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Peter Bourjos starting Sunday

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 12:59:21 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Peter Bourjos will bat eighth and play center field against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Sunday, July 12. OF Tommy Pham is getting the night off.

Fantasy Tip: Bourjos ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is 8-for-26 (.308) against Liriano in his career with three doubles, a triple and three RBIs. He's worthy of consideration as an inexpensive outfield option in FantasyScore tonight.

Cardinals | Peter Bourjos leading off

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 11:37:51 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Peter Bourjos is starting in center field and hitting leadoff against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke Thursday, July 9.

Fantasy Tip: Bourjos ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is mainly attractive to fantasy owners because of his speed, and he gains daily value atop the Cards' lineup. He has both of his home runs against lefties, too, but he's hitting .222 (10-for-45) against them this year. Bourjos profiles as a decent sleeper pick as one of your outfielders tonight.
